For 5 years U.S. policy has managed to steer a coalition of states which share broad interests in regional stability and free trade. Yet below these common interests, the United States has walked a tightrope stretched between competing objectives vis-a-vis Iraq, e.g., undermining Saddam while preserving Iraq as a counterweight to Iran; protecting the Kurds while not promoting their independence.

No relationship is likely to be more important to Americas security and economic interests in the years ahead than that with China. Nevertheless, a coherent and consistent U.S. policy toward China remains an elusive goal. U.S. policymakers have been unable to achieve consensus on such central issues as the nature of Chinas emerging power, how this power will affect U.S. interests, and how the United States should craft an enduring policy to manage its relationship with this emerging power. Without such agreement, U.S. policy responds overwhelmingly to immediate events and lacks the necessary s
