Arnaud de Borchgrave warns that we may be seeing a widespread anti-U.S. entente--Europe, Russia, China--being created. Very much worth reading as an exercise in geopolitical thinking as long as you note there are many missing large items (never mind some details). While the rise of China is not to be denied, I will just note that the changes in Japan regarding their military ability (with our approval) and our very good relations with India have to be noted, neither of which de Borchgrave mentions. Japan can play to the Asian continent a role similar to that being played by Britain to Europe. And, in the end, the great economic (and political) rival to China will be India. Also not to be ignored is the role that Australia
will play in the region.
