Anyone who believe the west wants conflict between China and India is deluding themselves.
I do not doubt your sincerity, and I agree that generally most in the West are not warmongers, and most do not wish to see India and China going to war.
I can't be sure for some neo-cons who are behind the policy to encircle China from the West and South. i.e. Afghanistan, India, Myanmar...
Not to mention from the East.
As for democracy in China, first learn to accept the possibility of non-Western democracy, to accept gradual evolution, and to accept there are more pressing developmental priorities.
Then you will come across to the Chinese more like a reasonable Westerner.
Too many Western democracies have failed in the developing world. It is not very attractive. Even you talk about India - it is now having a massive insurgency problem and many secessionist movements, on top of religious tensions and caste rivalries and massive corruption.
I rather that China focuses on lifting up another 200 million people from poverty, spread wealth more equally and to the minorities, develop the inland and Western regions, curb corruption and pollution, improve universal education and heath care, etc, improve the rule of law and strengthen all government institutions and enhance its capability of governance
Democracy is good but not really that important and urgent.
And international surveys have shown that Chinese people are happy with their government and political system.
