Can America Fight Two Cold Wars at Once?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Should we cut back on our treaty commitments, terminating U.S. war guarantees until they comport with what are true vital U.S. interests? Should we, faced with two great power adversaries, do as Nixon did and seek to separate them? If, however, we conclude, as this city seems to be concluding, that the long-term threat to U.S. interests is China, not Putin's Russia, President Trump cannot continue a trade relationship that provides the Communist Party of Xi Jinping with a yearly $400 billion trade surplus. For that would constitute a policy of almost suicidal appeasement.
