Assignment will be marked down for each day or fraction of a day late (that is, if you send it at 10:01, it’s late).

Your paper will address the following question: In the next 20 years, will there be a war between The United States and China?
Sources: Your paper should refer to at least one assigned course reading plus at least two articles from mainstream news sources (New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, BBC, Wall Street Journal, Al Jazeera, etc.). The news sources you use must have been published after August 1, 2016. There is no need to research more extensive background material from books, government documents, etc.
Sources must be cited properly, using a consistent citation format (e.g. MLA, APA, or Chicago).
This assignment asks you to apply concepts from the course to a particular, real-world conflict. To answer the question, you need to focus on both the causes of war and the strategies that countries use to try to get what they want from each other.
