Defense Expert Bridge Colby Analyzes China’s Intentions

February 13, 2023

Joined now by Elbridge Colby, who is an expert on China and United States relations, and he also is the co-founder and principle of the Marathon Initiative. He is a former U.S. assistant deputy secretary of defense for strategy and force deployment. His latest book, “The Strategy of Denial American Defense in an Age of Great Power Conflict.” All right, Bridge, appreciate you taking the time to join us. I know you’ve been on the show before. What in the world do you think is the most likely explanation for what has been going on the last 72 hours as we have now shot down at least three different — still unidentified — flying objects?
