This is an incredible strategic blunder, to the point of being irrational. It is only explicable based on emotion supervening on reason, which is what hubris involves. It's betting the farm.

Does this struggle against China make sense? Can America, whose economic and financial system today is highly precarious, afford to bludgeon China into adverse economic straits also? Can an America that off-shored much of its manufacturing capacity to China, for short-term profit, afford the de-coupling? Do American corporate leaders truly share the view that the (inevitable) consolidation of economic power in Asia imperils American prosperity, and that its consolidation would shatter their imperial outreach, dollar-based order?

No, but the enormous budget this would entail is too tempting to give up.
