The ball is now in America’s court. The choices the U.S. makes for itself are critical. We should be patient as we wait to find out whether or not the Biden administration can make a historic decision for the good of human civilization.

China-U.S. relations should not be defined by vicious strategic competition but rather by a nurturing of mutual trust. The greatest obstacle is presented by China hawks in U.S. strategic circles who want to hijack American policy and prevent Biden from breaking away from Trumpism.

Despite a confrontational summit in Alaska, the U.S. and China lack the military appetite for a new “Cold War.” The reality is both sides have more to lose from a direct confrontation then they could gain.

A meeting in Anchorage, representing the midway point between the U.S. and China, was nothing close to a middle ground for either country. Without a productive agenda that includes compromises, the two great powers are not going to be able to cooperate.
