Preventing a Second Pacific War

  1. America is a beacon of freedom and democracy, guardian of the Free World
  2. America is the culmination of Western Civilization, which traces its history to ancient Greece and Rome
  3. America may maintain a military presence any place in the world it wishes
  4. America may use its military power to intervene with violent force if its “National Security” is threatened
  5. “National Security” is defined as whatever the right people — a select set of “experts” and “thought leaders” who espouse core doctrines — say it is
  1. China experienced a century of humiliation — invasion, occupation, and dismemberment — at the hands of outsider Great Powers
  2. After suffering tens of millions of fatalities, no government of China can allow even the possibility of this happening again
  3. China is now a Great Power too, and deserves to be treated with respect
  4. Respect is defined by the correct people within the Communist Party, who retain the right to use violence if Respect is compromised
