China and Russia Have Started a New Cold War. Here’s What the West Can Do to Win It

March 14, 2022 | Elliott Abrams
About the author: Elliott Abrams is a senior fellow for Middle Eastern studies at the Council on Foreign Relations and is the chairman of the Tikvah Fund.

The Russian invasion of Ukraine—together with the Kremlin’s closeness with an every-more belligerent China—signals the beginning of a new cold war, argues Elliott Abrams in a recent essay. To respond to this new reality, the U.S. will have to reposition itself diplomatically, economically, militarily, and morally. In conversation, with Mosaic’s editor Jonathan Silver, Abrams explains what such a response entails, the latest developments on the ground in Europe, and what the new situation portends for Israel and the Middle East. (Video, 36 minutes. The essay is available at the link below.)
