As far as the Chinese go, they are simply reacting to their own business practices - trying to prevent other nations from doing what they did: steal their technology.
This is doomed to failure. Of course they CAN produce great original technology... but DO they? Not really. That is way to expensive.

As to your other point: All great nations fall. But this one won't in your life time.

Besides the modern definition of "fall" isn't what it used to be: some analytics saying an obscure growth metric trajectory is less than another nations, that sort of thing.

Wars in our backyard? We have by far the greatest military on Earth. However our population is so heavily armed that it would crush that military. So assuming you get past the Army, you still have to deal with us. You want to come over here and start sniping, take your best shot... because you won't get many.
