Prospect of war will recede under Hu, say China watchers

WITH Chinese President Hu Jintao in full control of the military, a cross-strait war can almost be ruled out in the near term, provided Taiwan does not make an overt bid for independence, according to China watchers in Singapore.

Is China less likely to enter an armed conflict with Hu at the helm?
Does it matter who is the leader in China, as long as President Chen maintains his aggressive posture towards the mainland?

As long as china continues its nationalistic approach towards Taiwan to protect its economic growth, there will be no difference.
