The United States for its part has repeatedly indicated its deep political commitment to ensuring its own interests and those of its allies in East Asia despite the evaporation of the Soviet threat that originally motivated many of these bilateral relationships. 11 The power of the United States and its allies presents China with a challenging military-security environment that its leaders cannot ignore.
