Characteristics of New US Strategy

China Review News (CRN) recently republished an article from Outlook News Weekly discussing the newly published U.S. National Security Strategy. The article compared the new strategy with the Bush version published four years ago and summarized four new adjustments: (1) Anti-terrorism strategy has been significantly adjusted and the phrase “War against Terror” has been dropped; (2) The new strategy has a strong taste of multilateralism instead of the “cowboy foreign relations;” (3) The new strategy focuses on the domestic economy; (4) There are higher expectations on China to play a “responsible leadership role.”

The author senses strong worry by the Obama Administration about the decline of U.S. power. However, the article stated that the ultimate goal of the U.S. to dominatie the world remains unchanged.
