Confronting China Without Starting a War

China vs. USA, August 6, 2020

Washington seems to be having conflicts with Beijing on almost every front. There’s everything from the trade war to China’s culpability in spreading the coronavirus to its repression of civil liberties in Hong Kong. News headlines regularly scream about a new Cold War between the United States and China. 

Are we in a new Cold War with China? China would be a much more formidable enemy than Iraq, the Taliban, or ISIS. How should the United States confront China in multiple realms—economic, political, military, public health, human rights—while avoiding an unintentional war? 

Ying Ma discusses these issues on the China vs. USA podcast with retired Admiral Gary Roughead, former Chief of Naval Operations and and one of only two people in the Navy’s history to command both the U.S. Atlantic and Pacific Fleets.
