You would think they don't need extra land and instead focus on building their infrastructure right.

Modern-day imperialism is not about land, it's about resources. The US has been doing the exact same thing all over the world and particularly in the middle east for many decades now. And China is buying land in Africa to mine on and teaches African children in African schools Chinese. It's not about land. Land was the topic of the 19th and early 20th century. In the 21st century, it's all about energy. Whoever has the most energy will have the strongest economy. And whoever has the strongest economy is the most powerful. Unfortunately, what none of the big superpowers in the world understands is that the future of energy lies in the green energy sector. At the moment green energy still needs some investments and research but in 20-40 years, green energy will be much cheaper, more powerful, more reliable and easier to get than oil, gas or coal.1
