China -Emerging power in Southeast Asia
Below is my letter to Time magazine "Deals and Diplomacy Page 14 Time, May 30, 2005"
As you pointed out in your article, whether we like it or not, China is becoming a dominant power to expand her influence over many Southeast Asian nations politically as well as economically.
What differentiates China from the United States in their use of power in Asia now is the presence of local ethnic Chinese and a strong thrust for natural and human resources to sustain their high rate of economic growth.
The game of power in the Southeast Asia has just begun between China and America. Asian people should always unite and be ready to say “No” if they find a slight of arrogance in their attitude.
