Europe may not be good at playing geopolitics, but it will not play ball with the United States on all matters—for instance on defense, technology, and trade.
Yet for India, there is still much to be gained by the United States’ current “block-chained” position in world politics.
The United States is central to the future of stability in a free and open Indo-Pacific.
As Beijing continues to develop, it will pose an even greater challenge to the United States and the global governance system.
Thus, U.S. leadership of the West can only be regained partially; global leadership is too much for any single country.
