Fallacies form US strategic thinking about China

The only thing one can really say about the “fears” of the US political elites looking at a possible conflict with China (examining the record we will soon discover) is something that a popular cartoon characters expressed many years ago, “We have found the enemy, and they are us!” Hopefully the spirit of Washington, Lincoln, and FDR is not completely extinguished in the minds of our political elites.
