Superpowers will not use brute means unless this is more efficient. They have choice. The mere awareness of their potential may be sufficient. Furthermore, public opinion is important; and usually brute force is unpopular. And, certainly, if China and the US were acting in concert, their potential would be more than sufficient and force would probably never be required (or, only ONE time).

A weak country has no diplomacy.

Nor does a country which has a government that is morally bankrupt. Face it, all China has is a large chequebook, market and a few more nice toys than the locals. This makes it untrustworthy, very little credibiity and local bully.
The Russians call it 'nekulturny' I believe.
Sorry folks, just being objective because I have no interest either way in this.

But, looking at the current situation, it will be VERY DIFFICULT to negotiate the appropriate alliance between China and the US. Nationalist influences in BOTH countries will oppose it. And, because this 2-power hegemony will lead (eventually) to some form of world government, it will be opposed by 1. all nationalists
2. most capitalists (because, if there is only one LEGAL JURISDICTION there is nowhere to which a rich criminal can FLEE to or send his MONEY) 3. arms dealers and military careerists (eventually no wars).
