China Is at Taiwan’s Door and America Isn’t Ready

September 13, 2022

America inevitably will be drawn into any potential conflict between China and Taiwan, but author and defense expert Elbridge Colby says we are woefully unprepared.  

“We’re not doing what we need to do,” Colby says. “We spend a lot of money on defense, honestly, but we have not focused enough on dealing with China and adapting our force to deal with that specifically. I think we’re just asking for trouble.” 

To Colby, an ascendant China is the biggest geopolitical threat facing the globe. And America needs to step up to deal with that threat.
