The operational environment of decision makers is crucial here because a leader operating from the domain of gains or who strategically expects gains will make very different decisions than a leader making decisions from the domain of losses and/or strategically expects losses. 5 represents the possible interactions within a dyad relative to reciprocity. When both actors operate in the domain of gains we would expect to see a positive TFT cycle developing. If both actors function in the domain of losses there is a high likelihood for the development of a negative reciprocal cycle and a protracted conflict.

The subjectivity of power is measured using several factors including perceptions of the public and leadership regarding the country’s power capabilities. For example, in the case of China and Vietnam that is reviewed in the next chapter, China was the more powerful actor of the two and there was a clear asymmetry of power. Yet, the perception in Vietnam at the time (mid to late 1970s) and following the defeat of the USA in the Vietnam War was of Vietnam being a regional power capable of challenging China.

If one state unleashed a military action against another state, the leadership of the target state must decide how to react to that action. Reciprocity suggests that the reaction by the target state should be of a comparable military nature as well (Evangelista 1989; Hensel and Diehl 1994). Such action-reaction sequence is likely to result in a negative violent spiral. To avoid entering such a negative spiral, the target state would need to refrain 2 INSIDE THE CRITICAL JUNCTURE 41 from reciprocating in kind in the first interaction, hoping to induce positive reciprocity from the other side.
