Milford Daily News newspaper, February 26 article, the original question: The United States must resist the rise of China ? China’s GDP will sooner or later than the United States. The great shift in global productivity and wealth is already beginning, the general economic strength into military strength. United States and China can harness this change, and will not involved in large-scale war?
world economic hegemony Transition process has always been dangerous, history is littered with example. For example, Spain was the superpower of the 16th century, then the power transfer to the French, followed by several generations of war. Then England replaced after many years of war France. The beginning of the last century, Germany as a challenge to British hegemony, and Japan in East Asia and the Pacific empire, this transition led to the outbreak of two world wars.
the United States military to use these precedents to find reasons for the increase in military spending. They can not help, can only look forward to the conflict, almost all the changes as a threat. Sometimes it seems we are doomed to keep making the same mistakes. But history is complex, highlighting the shift of power violence, dilute the peace approach, a systematic distortion of history. In fact, at least of a great shift of power is entirely peaceful.
the end of the 19th century, the U.S. economy more than the British. Between the two countries became close allies it later for a long time, throughout the 19th century, the United States the United Kingdom as the most dangerous enemy. The two countries last war in 1812-1814, the British troops in Canada until 1870.

The UK also believes that a large number of Royal Navy stationed in North American waters, and may force the Anglo-American to expand the naval arms race, while the British would lose. Britain started to reduce the number of warships stationed in the western Atlantic. This is the correct strategy. The United States is not re-invasion of Canada, did not threaten Britain’s vital interests. Peace the crown of world hegemony from Britain to America, but it was not long before the two countries as allies.
now turn to the United States to figure out how to deal with far in the ocean the other side of an emerging country. The United States can follow the example of Britain, do not try to encircle China and provocation to the Chinese people, Chinese people will abide by the rules. U.S. vital interests in Asia, at least not worth at all with the Chinese war to protect the interests of. Become the world’s hegemon, the United States did not suffer from external attack, even after losing the title, the military will continue to be impeccable.
compared to dominate the world, the United Kingdom is now clearly more prosperous, might the British have had a happier. Decline (relative decline) is not so bad Americans imagine. ▲ (of Gwen Dell, Wang analysis translated)
