"China's air force and the PLA aren't what they used to be? They've modernized a lot. I'd like Rob's opinion on this.  The idea that China is better off intervening militarily than not is kind of unexpected. They may be…"

China's Options

Posted on April 12, 2017 at 7:43am 6 Comments

China's hand in the unfolding Korea game is the most interesting to evaluate, as it has the largest number of creative options at its disposal.

China's national interests are best served by a gradual decrease in US military presence and geopolitical power in Korea and Japan, such that China can be free to expand its naval and commercial power in the region.

The problem was that McClellan didn't think his strategy fully through. War, like chess, requires the ability to think many moves ahead, keeping each of your opponent's countermoves into…

I'm a great fan of history. It not only helps explain how we got to the present, but also provides guidance as to how we should conduct ourselves in the present and the future, a form of vicarious experience. This is crucial in statecraft, as the importance of the task is world-historical,…
