The Big Difference

The basic reason I still hold open the possibility that China could be our friend instead of enemy, despite China's apparent view of us, is that China does have a lot invested in the international economic system.

The Soviet Union only dabbled in the Western economic world, buying wheat and stealing our technology. China is plugged in and makes a lot of money in the world, and that might trump ideology one day.

But I don't count on it.
