And I can tell you that one of the most brilliant moves that the Chinese did was to propose a free trade agreement with South-East Asia.  You know, South-East Asia you might call the "soft underbelly" of China, right?  Five-hundred million people who in the past had been used by the United States to contain China in the Cold War.

Well, I'm sure the US tried...

The main struggle in the cold war was not with China, it was with the USSR. As Nixon showed.
