AREA OF SPECIALIZATION
While United States, under the presidency of Donald Trump, is looking for revitalizing its prowess and attempting to regain lost glory, China is in a hurry to attain the new global superpower status by showing off its military and economic strength. The catching up time between China and US may not be too long before they can be near equals at least at some levels. Earlier it was predicted that by 2040 China can be equal to US in four strategic parameters such as military, economic, political and cultural. But the fast pace of technological innovations and ever sliding geopolitics can make it happen much faster.
Asia is going to be pretty similar like 20th century Europe where battlegrounds were tick marked and military commanders were routinely making their war preparedness in a theatre format.
While China is in the ascending trajectory for power, the US is somewhat in a descending trajectory. This is largely due to cycle of history. Both are trying to have their space.
In the quest for this achievement, they are ready to go to war. Yet, at this stage neither side can afford a full scale war, only they can talk of certain possibilities.
Yet converting possibilities into options take long time.&nbs
