“You’ve probably seen it around the conference,” US Senator John McCain said , as he began his remarks at the 48th Munich Security Conference by holding up a copy of The Security Times, a special edition of The Atlantic Times published exclusively for the annual defense gathering. (video)

“It shows a forceful bat-wielding Yankee dueling with a crouched yet fearsome Chinese swordsman. That obviously suggests a looming Cold War in Asia.” It’s a nice caricature, the senator said as he went on to describe “what is really going on in my view.”

On recent trips to the Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand and Burma, McCain said he experienced “real enthusiasm for our growing involvement in the region.” On China: “The peaceful development of China is in the interest of the US.”
