Q: Has China ever fought and won a war with a foreign power in the last 1,000 years?

Yeah I know they had a lot of bloody internal civil and tribal wars/revolutions, but have they ever officially been a party to war and prevail?  I don't think the Korean War counts because they were only mercenaries and technically that war never ended yet.  They don't admit to their brief border clash with Vietnam.  The reason I ask, is because I think that without any actual experience fighting a modern war, they would not stand a chance against Japan or any NATO country.

Well, they did fight us (the USA) to a standstill in Korea back in the 1950's. Does that count?

They didn't even "win" Korea in any sense anyway. That war accomplished its purpose of booting the commies out of South Korea. What SHOULD have happened was the west should have gone all in and march straight to Beijing. 

 

Anyway, they haven't won a thing. And they would be destroyed in a real war now.

They defeated the French in the Franco-Sino war  (1884 to 1885)although history books say China lost. In my opinion, the French got Vietnam and a few other places but NOT China so China won in my book and I don't  really care who says other wise.  They won against America, Australia and others in the Korean "police actiont" and again in the Vietnam "conflict".  China had a tangle with India and won and Britain backed down on it's "CLAIM" to Hong Kong but not many other places.  Finally, China did not exactly lose during a border conflict with RUSSIA in 1969...while both countries were aiding Vietnam.   

 

Has America won any in since 1945?  Oh, sorry, how is America doing with the job of "peace keeping".

OP, Why ask? Seems like a question asked for the purpose of causing friction.
