US strategic documents have for years designated China as Washington’s main rival, regarding Russia as an “acute” but short-term threat. According to some commentators and politicians on the right, the US should shift its attention and resources to Asia. According to Wess Mitchell, a former employee of the Donald Trump administration and founder of the Marathon Initiative – an initiative that prepares the US strategy for rivalry with China – firm policies towards Russia and China do not have to be mutually exclusive.

“In my estimation, the United States and our allies have a chance to gain a great advantage against Russia and China by helping Ukraine win the war. In my opinion, the desirable strategy would be to first defeat Russia definitively, and then turn our full attention to China, says Mitchell.

He adds that supporting Ukraine’s resistance is in the US interest for a number of reasons.

— Firstly, in this way Ukraine is strengthening its deterrence and stopping further Russian attacks. Secondly, the Russians become economically and militarily weakened for a while, and the Europeans – if they keep their commitments – will strengthen their defenses. Over time, this would make it easier to dedicate most of our efforts to Asia without having to worry about the other theater of operations, he estimates.
