The U.S. and China realize that they need each other and stand to gain tremendously if they respect each others' interests and cooperate with each other. Many of the world's challenges, such as nuclear non-proliferation, environmental protection, and religious extremism could be better managed if the U.S., China and Russia worked together. On the other hand, when these major countries work to undermine each other, the end results are often counterproductive. Take for example U.S.' support of the mujaheddin against the Soviets in Afghanistan and China's support of North Vietnam. There is a good chance that these countries will start cooperating with each other instead of repeating the mistakes of the past. Globalization of trade, ease of travel and the internet has made the world a much smaller and more interdependent place.
