To simply be ruled by an emperor is not usually considered "imperialism", I think there are other candidates for that, perhaps not ruled by an emperor.

Also the first "Chinese" emperor, apparently, comes to the scene rather late, after the first "Persian" one for instance.
The short answer is yes; China, as we understand it today, was originally made up of seven "Warring States." I will also point that the language most people think of as "Chinese" is properly called Mandarin and it is the most commonly spoken language but hardly the only one. And, yes you could argue that China practically invented imperialism.

Sending bomber over he Pacific is one thing. We need to look at ground forces. We nee to look at restarting the Team Spirit exercises we used to do in Korea.

Do you really think that China would be impressed with a division of US troops?

Have you ever compared that to a US map from the 13 colonies to Alaska and Hawaii? Is there a difference? What is it? Don't forget Guam, Samoa and PR.

Don't throw stones, you might break something
