Why is it America needs to be in Asia?
What right does America have to be the "policeman" of the w ...

"The world" pretty much gave USA the role of policeman in WW2. USA rescued Europe from the nazis and Asia from the Japanese empre. Prior to building big industry to make planes, tanks and fleets of ships that were needed for this, USA wasn't that great military power.

Then there came cold war, Israel, oil and international terrorrism and situation got messy.

But USA has kept its role originating from WW2.

Soviet Union lost, and communism in China is nothing but name of the party and ownership of the land. It is European social-democratic countries who are living the characteristics of communist dream with social justice.

USA providing safety to Japan is what has kept Japan from building its own army again, or China from taking revenge on Japan for that matter. As for South Korea, with China's support (and maybe Soviet Union's), DPRK would have taken over whole Korean peninsula long ago, if it was not for USA protecting South Korea.

You ask why America needs to be in Asia - that's why.

Your original solution does not work, because it would take independence from Korea.

China should try to not fear having US bases on unified Korea, and instead start thinking about how to make that work. For example, could there be permanent Chinese garrison within or close to the US base, to collaborate and learn from each other? To build transparency and trust.

I know China is NOT perfect.
In my experience the good out weighed the bad.

Ah, you do? What a surprise...

If China is not perfect it therefore has no mandate to rule in Korea or to be their colonial overmaster.

The U.S.A. is in Asia because the Chinese were manifestly unable to keep their empire inviolate. The weak Chinese had to be helped by the U.S.A., Australians and many others.

How did they repay their debt to the West?

By attacking Korea to impose their barbarous authoritarianist rule.

China is inevitably a dumpling ground for dumb ass foreigners at the moment.  We're really disappointed with that.

The CPC is worried about one thing.....
"unrest" in its society.
The past experience with the West has not been a good one.
That is why social media is limited in China.
The West continues to "bad mouth" and instigate unrest in China only because they call themselves "Communist".


Those bad experiences that you probably refer to, were reactions to bad deeds orchestrated by the Chinese leadership itself. The cultural revolution, wide-scale corruption, and numerous smaller issues.

Some Chinese looked to the west (into which China had only recently opened doors), and saw no such malpractises by western states (no doubt such existed, but were invisible to them). They thought (some claim incorrectly) that democracy is the reason for this, and they wanted democractic reforms in China to achieve the same status.

Now the current leadership of China is fighting at least partially the same battle that those unfortunate Chinese pioneers tried to fight.  Anti-corruption campaign, judiciary reforms - those aim for the very same goals that others in China have tried to fight for decades before.

Your reference to  "China's past experiences with western influence" is not accurate. China's bad experiences resulted from its very own actions, and when your own state fails to act to solve them, obviously citizens will look for solutions elsewhere.

Now China's current leadership agrees at least in theory, that malpractises by officials must be dealt with swiftly and efficiently. But that is not so easy to do, due to so many vested interests.

Regardless, Chinese society is moving to the direction where both western viewers and Chinese leaders would like it to move. Steps are small but steps neverthless. Those steps will lead to unification of China, if eventually either party even wants such unification.

Taiwan and mainland must be compatible in all aspects of society to achieve meangingful unification, and while Beijing takes baby steps to that direction, Taiwan may take steps further too. Taiwanese may not be interested with China's aspirations for "moderately prosperous society", because they have that already, and aim higher.

I'm glad you agree

Opinion on Taiwan is divided. The crucial element is the type of local autonomy Taiwan would receive. It could be greater than Hong Kong. It would be wrong for foreign troops to impose a solution that should be Chinese. The US can be to urge Taiwan to rejoin and perhaps to mediate negotiations. Also to end all military aid to Taiwan. The important thing is to build a very good relationship between China and the USA because the whole future of humanity depends mostly on their cooperation to end war.
Without World Government we are DOOMED.

You like the spirit of hegemons drawing the boundaries of smaller nations. That is not very ethica ...

Anything that weakens the war-making powers of nation-states is beneficial. Hegemones are required to end the war-making powers. I have no respect for nationalism. It is simply a way local elites divide and rule humanity. It is just an outgrowth of primitive tribalism. And it could cause the extinction of our species. One species ... one destiny ... on many planets. I can't imagine national divisions remaining meaningful as we spread through the galaxy. Ethics is what enables our species to survive and spread.
Without World Government we are DOOMED.
