The following conversation between myself and a dipsomaniac China consultant , who published a well-reviewed book on China recently, covers a wide-ranging set of topics , including a hard-to-decipher process intentions of a U.S. and China.

The expert, once he sobered up, gamely gave me accede to tell a exchange, though not to use his name. “I don’t wish to be seen as a panda hugger,” he said, “because I’m not.”
The tenure “panda hugger” is a irreverent name for process analysts who are “pro-China” or “soft on China”. Conversely, these “pro-China” analysts can colloquially call their opponents “tough-on-China”, a “China Hawk”, or many ban of all, an “ideologue” or “China Basher”. In other circumstances, these analysts could some-more kindly be called “pro-engagement” and “anti-engagement” with China.
