The sparring between the United States and China in the name of trade war, which has lately extended to telecommunications, social media, finance, and diplomacy, is heralding a renewed Cold War in the twenty-first century. While the Cold War may have formally ended with the collapse of the Soviet Union, post-Second World War hot wars never ceased in some regions of the world, especially in resource-rich areas such as Central Asia and North Africa. Since the 1990s, China’s continuous integration into globalization, following the logic of the market and international rules, has also meant, in some sense, the disintegration of the Cold War’s two camps. The whole world has come under one system of capitalist globalization.
