We call this "The American Century" because of bad perspective. WWII created a blip in European history. Studying history and philosophy in Europe is fascinating because America is just a shoulder shrug there. Once the EU crests and China wakes fully, peace will come to the Middle East because of the prosperity of trade between the eastern and western extremes of Eurasia.
Third, China is ruled by a single party. That's gotta change, and it will.
Sino-American partnership, in managing the complex mess of their imbalanced economic codependency, can constitute a good beginning for managing the utterly unhinged problems of world balance and order. We have no acceptable choice but to get good at it, and that will take some doing on both sides.
