America’s Coming War With China

by Douglas MacGregor

“Given the rise in anti-Chinese sentiment spawned by the off-shoring of America’s production base to China, the impact of COVID-19, and hyperbolic rhetoric in Washington regarding China’s alleged malevolent aspirations, any number of observers of American politics might easily conclude that Washington is on the precipice of blundering into another war — this time with China. After all, a similar climate of deep-seated paranoia and military hysteria steered the world’s great powers blindly into war in 1914. The problem with assuming the inevitability of conflict is that many Washington politicians live by the axiom ‘out of sight, out of mind,’ and seek constant media attention. Thus, public statements made by Washington’s publicity seekers in and out of uniform are seldom informative.” (06/08/21)
