Unlikely. This would destroy China’s standing on the world stage. Much like Russia’s aggressive posturing against Ukraine, it’s a test to see where Biden draws the line. Both countries have far more vested interests in the Arctic than in their neighboring countries.
China wants the South China Sea. Not a pointless war with Taiwan or the US. It can afford to play the waiting game and just grind Taiwan’s economy down without having to lift a finger.
And with regards to the South China Sea, it’s already cutting deals with South East Asian countries and not forcing them to pick sides. They will pick China more often than not because Blinken’s too weak to do anything about it. He’s even indicated he wouldn’t stand in the way.

These are not anti-lockdown protest in Belfast, Northern Ireland. They're loyalist youths angry over post-Brexit trading arrangements and a controversy over a decision not to prosecute Sinn Fein politicians.

The troubles, it seems, are not yet over.
*protests. Man I butchered that.
FYI they're right wing so hold your outrage. They're taking action against what is obviously a two-tiered system. Sinn Fein (whom the Loyalists oppose) violated lockdown rules and are apparently exempt from following the law everyone else is forced to abide by.

This was a good, sympathetic profile of Noah Green, who rammed a Capitol Hill barrier and killed a police officer. He was mentally ill and his family alleges it all began years ago with a crippling drug addiction to Xanax deteriorating mental health.…
The piece is worth a read, and it flies in the face of claims that only White supremacists get sympathetic profiles written about them after they do bad things.

He had a promising future when he was a student, before his deterioration. This wasn't the case of some hood rat.
Was Green's attack ideologically motivated by his joining the Nation of Islam? We don't know yet. I'd wager that it was a combination of mental illness, fanaticism and a desire to commit suicide that drove him to murder Capitol Police Officer William F. Evans.
