China's rise

24 February 2007


If, as the Vice-President states, China’s military build-up is ‘not consistent’ with the aim of peaceful rise (‘Cheney Criticizes China’s Arms Buildup’, 23/2), it might be helpful to enumerate those things the much vaster US military build-up is not consistent with:


• Allowing other nations (including China) to feel secure.


• Prudent financial management.


• The spirit of numerous disarmanent treaties.


• The American role as exemplar to smaller nations.


• Its own self-interest, and the safety of its citizens.
