Over the centuries, a rich China invariably brought prosperity to all of East and Southeast Asia. Therefore, while Asian countries might value the U.S. as a friend, no one wants China as an enemy.

If the U.S., in response to China's rise, moves too close to some as a move against others, everyone is caught in a lose-lose situation.
