Three days before the recent Xi-Obama Summit, US neocons launched yet another initiative to undermine US-China relations. In a “China threat” themed report, circulated in Washington and on the Internet, neocons called for aggressive actions to contain China.
The report was written by an ad hoc advocacy committee called the Asia-Pacific Strategy Working Group. Members of this group belong to such neoconservative think tanks as the American Enterprise Institute and the Foreign Policy Initiative on whose websites the report is posted. AEI’s resident China specialist, Dan Blumenthal, heads up the group.
