Another way of saying “war”, when you strip the word of its patriotic and justifying connotations, is “Human Sacrifice”, so if you tweak the above (along with some word-play on the word "with"), you get the following:
“An American lead Human Sacrifice (in tandem) with China is not on the agenda.”
“Insurrectionist Forces” seems to be what’s on the menu this time around, and both empires have their “enemies at the gates” to go to “War” with. The US has the Christians, Pro-Trumpers, and Republicans in their sights (although how this will pan out is still uncertain), while China has Taiwan, Tibet, and Xinjiang in theirs.
And that, at least, IS on the agenda, or that’s how it looks to me from where I am standing.
