US Revokes Visas of Over 1,000 Chinese Nationals; The Coming Space Race Between the US and China

2020-09-11 02:02
The United States has revoked the visas of more than 1,000 Chinese nationals over their alleged links to the Chinese military. Over 60 students holding F-1 visas including postgraduates and undergraduates said in a WeChat group that the notices said they’d have to apply for new visas if they wanted to travel to the United States. Meanwhile, Europe appears to be waking up to the threats of Chinese subversion. The Chinese Communist Party’s Foreign Minister, Wang Yi, and Politburo Member Yang Jiechi recently visited Europe on a diplomatic tour. But instead of being welcomed, they were criticized by European countries one after another. And the Pentagon views China’s militarized space programs as a serious threat to the United States. Among the technologies it named were anti-satellite missiles and space robots that could destroy US satellites. To get a better idea about the seriousness of space and the US response to it through its Space Force, we’ve invited to speak with us today Brandon Weichert, geopolitical analyst and author of “Winning Space: How America Remains a Superpower.” These stories and more in this episode of Crossroads.
