"What should America's allies conclude? That a Chinese-led international order is unlikely to be liberal. It is likely to be an order in which China's interests alone dictate outcomes unmitigated by rules; in which the strong do what they may and the weak suffer what they must; in which tribute rather than alliance determines treatment; and in which military force is used to advance commercial advantage. In short, it would be the equivalent of America's early twentieth century policy of United Fruit and gunboat diplomacy in Latin America. This is not an international order in which Western sensibilities would prosper." - Kori Schake
