I believe that the United States should not attempt to put any militaristic or economic restrictions on China. This is because the United States simply doesn’t have the power to back up whatever threats they may give. The United States should instead try to keep the tensions from growing and work to get an alliance with China to benefit both countries. This option will keep the conflict from becoming a war and allow a more peaceful resolution. But instead of trading exclusively with China, the United States should continue its current path of attempting to produce some of its own goods. Hopefully these current producers in the United States could grow until the United States was capable of sustaining itself. This would allow the United States to have greater power in future conflicts because they would be able to provide food and resources for themselves and so would be unaffected by major changes in diplomatic agreements with the rest of the world. Peace with China would allow for the time needed to become self-sufficient and once that was achieved, the United States would be better equipped to deal with the rest of the world.
I believe that Option 2: Promote Stability and Trade best encompasses this idea as it is quite similar to most of the ideas of what I believe to be the solution. The only difference in the solutions would be that Option 2 seems to take what should work and emphasize it more. Trading with China will help the foundations for an alliance, but Option 2 is ready to trade with China to the exclusion of all else. This would cause a diminished amount of jobs in the United States and further deepen the debt that the United States currently owes China. This single action would be the exact opposite of the solution we need. If the United States goes so far as to give all manufacturing power to China there will be problems when a war arises. Should the two countries ever disagree enough to go to war, China would likely win. This is because China would have superior funds and technology while the United States would be attempting to purchase weapons with only a heavy debt. This idea of exclusive manufacturing would also give China near complete control over the United States. Should China ever have an issue with the United States, it would be simply solved in China’s favor if China were to cease trading with the United States. The economy of the United States would likely not survive a prolonged cessation of trade with China. I hope this is sufficient enough to show that while Option 2 provides the best option, being closest to the ideal solution, it has a singular flaw that could destroy the United States as it is today.
