"...a hot conflict over Taiwan..."
The очередной conflict the Yankee Doodles so desire for China is no more 'over Taiwan' than the one they spent so long and worked so hard to create — '20 years and 5 billion bucks!' to paraphrase the braggart words of one who sees herself as one of its (if not THE) most important (Why is ego so important to such people?) prime movers — for Russia.

See any one of many results to come up from the most simple Google search, "us war", e.g. https://medium.com/traveling-through-history/only-15-years-of-peace-in-the-history-of-the-united-states-of-america-c479193df79f: "In the entire history of the United States of America there has been a grand total of 15 years when we have not been at war with someone."
