“Whether the new Cold War with China will be more prone to war or nuclear escalation depends to a large extent on three factors: the frequency of accidental conflict encounters at sea, the learning between China and its adversaries in each successive crisis, and the rise of powerful third parties or common issues that would mitigate the rivalry and encourage cooperation between Beijing and the democracies.”
