I really appreciated this article. Extremely well written and original in idea. I have not read any another article comparing China in a Cold War scenario. I would like to add that it is a fact that there is no ideological threat. China’ s only ‘friends’, Iran, NK and Pakistan are all of different mindsets. I personally feel, China runs the risk of becoming an economic target . A pariah who will lose his global market due to blockades/ tariffs, embargo etc if it does not conform to the global order. America may no longer be a unilateral power but… Read more »

As always, the author has researched his subject very well . He has covered the Cold War of yesteryear’s and compared it to the Cold War setting in .

Certainly a very readable article

Col. RNG’s points to disprove the US and its allies intentions for continuance of Cold War situation with China are very strong, well analysed and cannot be ruled out. True, that in last 20 years, economy of China with US and its alies have blended so intricately that his comments on their relationship as “Bad Marriage with no probability of divorce ” is explicit in itself.

Dear Sir, While covering the subject in a very comprehensive manner, the author has touched upon issues which need to be deliberated.There is absolutely no doubt that the current animosity/ belligerence between China & USA, in the main, do not bear many similarities with the Cold War. What also stands out from the Article is that what China is looking far is expanding its Economic footprint, creating economic and military dependence in the future & and not building ideological blocks. But we still need to define the rising level of acrimony and hostility between USA & China. What is interesting… Read more »
