Are China And The US Long-Term Enemies?

This "2-Minute Debate" is part of a series co-produced by Intelligence Squared U.S. and Newsy.

Is China's ascendancy a threat to the U.S.? 

China's rise as an economic and military power, coupled with its aggression in the South China Sea, have led some to call for a major rebalance of U.S. policy and strategy. Can China be trusted to act as a responsible global stakeholder? Will they be a long-term ally or an adversary?

The panel: 

Peter Brookes, senior fellow at The Heritage Foundation

John Mearsheimer, professor of political science at the University of Chicago

Robert Daly, director of the Kissinger Institute on China and the U.S.

Kevin Rudd, former prime minister of Australia
