    There are two schools of thought about the future of the People's Republic of China (PRC). The first is that the growing communist state will do anything to become the world's preeminent power, including use its military - the world's largest - to forcefully get its way. Beijing intends to dominate Asia, and it plans to push the United States aside to become the regional hegemon. The second, a more skeptical crowd, thinks China has too many challenges to pose a serious threat to America. In other words, don't worry about another Cold War any time soon.
