Communist China Exploits Gaps in US Military—Rebeccah Heinrichs | American Thought Leaders

2020-09-24 15:36
For years, the Chinese Communist Party has aggressively sought to modernize its military, with a focus on anti-satellite weapons, hypersonic missiles, and cyberspace. “What China has been doing, really since the 90s, is invest heavily in the kinds of weapons systems specifically to target where the United States is weakest,” says nuclear deterrence and missile defense specialist Rebeccah Heinrichs. The goal is to push the United States out of the Asia-Pacific region and eventually supplant America. In this episode, we sit down with Heinrichs, a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute and adjunct professor at the Institute of World Politics, to discuss how the U.S. should tackle the national security threats posed by China and also by Russia. This is American Thought Leaders 🇺🇸, and I’m Jan Jekielek.
