Chandran Nair | Posted 05.11.2016 | World

HONG KONG -- Trump capitalizes on a dangerous combination of isolationism and hawkishness. Against this background, Asian countries should work to remake geopolitics so it is no longer stuck in the post-war narrative where America's overwhelming military supremacy is viewed as the only way to solve the world's problems. ASEAN has long disapproved of intervention, instead supporting economic engagement and investment. And the Singaporean "problem-solving" approach is more likely to be accepted by countries than the lecturing, sanctions and military threats that often accompany Western diplomacy.

Debate Moderators Should Do a Better Job of Asking About China

It is precisely because it is so difficult to know the candidates' views -- and perhaps so easy to misconstrue them given their past records -- that it is essential that the moderators in the upcoming debates do a much better job of asking pointed questions about a rising China with a rapidly expanding military.

America is still the world's only superpower, but China is gradually catching up. China's economy has become the second largest in the world, and the leadership is speaking with a louder voice in international affairs. And while historically China has eschewed building formal alliances with other countries, even that policy is slowly shifting: Beijing is courting new partners, including allies of Washington like President Park and others.

BEIJING -- China's enhanced transparency lends an excuse for some to sensationalize the "China Threat." In fact, China has reiterated that it's an internationally accepted practice to showcase advanced weapons and equipment in a parade. It is a reflection of the level of military modernization which signals a positive energy that China will maintain world peace together with others and it is not directed against any other country.
