China expert, Gordon G. Chang interviewed Brandon J. Weichert for The Washington Times about China’s threat in the high-tech sector.
Peter Thiel and Donald Trump have both excoriated Google for their work with China’s government on AI. I provide details and context for Gordon G. Chang and John Batchelor on this issue and the other big tech concern: China’s development of quantum computing technology.
In quantum computing, biotech, and space mining the United States is competing for dominance with China…and the U.S. is losing. Innovation and disruption go hand-in-hand whichever side embraces this first will win the 100-Year Marathon.
The Philippines can either make-or-break my proposed maritime containment strategy for China. Therefore, the Philippines can either totally align with the United States as it did during the Cold War or it will have to be Finlandized to prevent it from becoming a conduit for Chinese influence.
It’s time to draw-down U.S. forces from South Korea and move them on to Taiwan, only then can the United States build a proper defensive perimeter around China in the Asia-Pacific and only then will Washington be playing to its traditional strengths as a maritime power.
In my most recent op-ed at Space News, the leading industry paper on all things related to space policy, I argue that President Trump erred with his tweet last week about the moon.
In my recent op-ed for The American Spectator, I analyze the growing Sino-Russian alliance and how the United States helped to create it.
As the United States searches for greater leverage to use against China, it must be willing to look outside the economic realm and toward the geopolitical. It must be willing to recognize Taiwan as a fully free and sovereign state.
In March, Brandon J. Weichert was interviewed by Gordon G. Chang of The Daily Beast to discuss his take on the ongoing conflict with China.
The Chinese are a great people with a rich history. They have known general dominance throughout their 4,000-year history. What’s more, as Deng Xiaoping said when the Soviet Union collapsed, China has been engaged in a second Cold War with the United States. They’ve been winning—and they will continue to do so unless we do more than what we’ve been doing to counter them.
