Abstract : The objective of my Strategic Research Project is to examine China as a rising global threat to United States national security. Post WWII positioned the United States as the hegemonic state of the world, able to exercise its Diplomatic, Information, Military, and Economic dominance as a result of the Cold War. Most significantly after the fall of the Soviet Empire, likely the last peer competitor nation with the ability to match the US (primarily in the area of Military power), China has risen to the level that guarantees it the respect of the international community. China, when measured along the instruments of power, displays those same attributes of an integral powerful state with global influence, not just economically. Can the United States still hold its position as the hegemon within the international community as it continues to fight a war, repair its economy and deal with social issues (looking at home first); while other potential nations (China) leverage footholds within the international community of nations through its innovative use of soft power? Is the U.S. willing to accommodate China s rise or are we looking at the onset of a clash of two of the world s most powerful players?
