On June 30, 2021, Global China Hub nonresident senior fellow John K. Culver was featured on an episode of “Intelligence Matters” to discuss Beijing’s military prowess.
In regard to the challenges confronting Beijing, Culver said “I frankly wish that the current situation we confront with China was as simple as the Cold War. As you know, it’s not this nice, clean, bipolar world. China’s completely integrated into global economics, completely integrated into an international system into the UN and other agencies. And so the ability to kind of divide into sides and then compete in a nice, clean Cold War style isn’t available to us.”
