    The Rise of China Will Not Be Peaceful
    By John Mearsheimer, The Australian
    November 18, 2005

    THE question at hand is simple and profound: will China rise peacefully? My answer is no.

    If China continues its impressive economic growth over the next few decades, the US and China are likely to engage in an intense security competition with considerable potential for war. Most of China's neighbours, to include India, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Russia and Vietnam, will join with the US to contain China's power.

    To predict the future in Asia, one needs a theory that explains how rising powers are likely to act and how other states will react to them.

    Greed? Refusal to face facts? False hopes? Why do you think the U.S. is so willing and eager to assist Communist China's economic growth?

    If we ever have to come to blows with them, I fear it will be a lot worse than Pearl Harbor ever was. I think the Chinese foresee such a conflict with America in their future and are preparing for it.
