tensions are being escalated in order to justify war

"The very real danger is that Taiwan, Tibet or another issue can become the
flashpoint for a rapid breakdown of relations and the eruption of trade war and
ultimately military conflict—as occurred during the last great crisis of world
capitalism in the 1930s."
A dangerous rise in US-China tensions - WSWS 5 February 2010
This is a good article, as regards outlining the evidence for greater tension between the US and China. However, WSWS is so focused on its own ideology that it puts 'crisis of capitalism' above geopolitical considerations, which are dominant in this case. The correct comparison is not to the 1930s, but to the 1910s. Not World War 2, but World War 1. US hegemony is being eclipsed by China now, just as Britain's was being eclipsed by Germany leading up to World War 1. War will not be an accidental by-product of tensions; rather tensions are being escalated in order to justify war.
