Maybe the deals are due for the recent “elections” and the PLA lobby wants domestic growth by defense spending, so foreign enemies and conflicts must happen.
Some in the CCP may need to depend on the military, as it has in the past, to counter “get rich anyway you can” corruption, provincial agendas and power plays against Beijing, general public cynicism and detestation of the power and money elite, etc.
Some might say that China is becoming even more like the USA, but there are differences, capitalism with Chinese characteristics.
