The U.S. is carrying out a new geopolitical and military strategy in the Asia-Pacific region called the Pivot to Asia. Through this strategy, the U.S. is leading a new round of nationalism, militarization, and conflict in the region as the U.S. and its allies rally against the rise of China. This talk discusses the goals of the Pivot to Asia, what is happening in the Pacific as a result, and how it can be stopped.
