^^The US won't ever send its own troops in. The CIA is very active, but it's a war of subterfuge between China at the Junta level, and CIA at the subgroup level. China will have to break the mold and understand they are now at the level they will have to interfere in other nations' affairs. I think they've realized this. If they lose to the Americans in Burma they lose face and credibility as well as a strategic "sphere of influence" border country.
