Is US planning a new Cold War? (2)

The fourth characteristic is economic divide and rule. The United States has actively promoted the Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership Agreement (TPP), and excluded China from it.

Japan is most active in helping the United States create a new Cold War geopolitical landscape in the region. It has willingly served as a foot soldier and strategic frontier for the United States, and frequently interfered in various affairs to expand its strategic network. It is obvious that the two countries have reached a strong consensus on containing China, but at the expense of the fruits of victory of the world's anti-fascist war, the post-WWII Asia-Pacific order, and the political foundation for regional peace. This is bound to destabilize the Asia-Pacific region.

In fact, most Asia-Pacific countries are opposed to another Cold War, and do not want to choose sides. They have adopted a balance-of-power policy, and are trying to create a strategic balance among major powers in the region in order to enhance their security and gain more benefits.

The Asia-Pacific region is not always the top priority of the United States. At present, it has to focus on all three of Europe, the Middle East, and the Asia-Pacific region.

The world's geopolitical center of gravity is shifting to the Asia-Pacific region, which is the main direction for China to forge ahead and also the main source of external threats. The regional geopolitical landscape is undergoing the most profound and complex changes since the Second World War, and China should undoubtedly adopted an Asia-Pacific-oriented global geopolitical strategy.

A new Asia-Pacific geopolitical landscape will be formed only after a relatively long time of fierce struggle and turmoil. China should and is well able to play a positive role in pushing the formation of the new geopolitical landscape in the right direction.
