Deadly serious

“Is America so determined to contain China’s challenge and preserve its leadership in Asia that it is willing to fight a major war – quite possibly a nuclear war – to do so?”

Hugh White

Professor Hugh White of the Australian National University tells the South China Morning Post that if not, the US “will not win this new cold war”. White says China is the strongest adversary America has ever faced. The author of The China Choice (see WiC173), White says China wants to replace the US as East Asia’s “preponderant power”.
