This obsession also was presumed to be independent of socialist ideology; so that when Deng jettisoned much of the ideology, Soviets supposedly had no reason to see a new opportunity for balancing. Missing in such approaches to Soviet reasoning is awareness of how limited were China’s serious claims to islands in the Amur River on the Chinese side of the existing navigational channels and how intense were the Soviet ideological barriers complicating strategic thought.

Weakening détente with the United States in the wake of the Sino-US rapprochement, approving Vietnam’s invasion of Cambodia not long after Mao’s demise, and sending troops to fight a war in Afghanistan at the very moment when China dropped the term “revisionism” for the Soviet Union, defied the logic of strategic balancing.
