 Describing China as a hypothetical adversary that helps the Pentagon prepare its budget requests, James Dobbins, senior security analyst at the Rand Corp., said Thursday, “When we find a real adversary like North Korea or al-Qaida, China becomes an ally and not an adversary.”

And, Dobbins said in an interview, “We are in a phase now where we have real enemies. We don’t have to make up hypothetical ones.”
