Chaina won't attack it would be pointless and make zero sense they are more interested in building their economy and a war with Taiwan won't allow their expansion in these markets so it makes no sense but that is just my humble thoughts

A prosperous China is indeed less worrisome than an unprosperous China. A big problem is that China's economy is a house of cards and if and when the Chinese people have to face the reality that the economic promises the CCP has made to them will not be realized, China becomes a big threat. An imminently defeatable one, but one that can still cause a lot of death and destruction before it is defeated.
