The ability to design and manufacture advanced computer chips has yet to be mastered by China. It is the last major technological advantage the West has over China/. Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) just undercut that advantage earlier this year. Things are about to get ugly, as I write in my column at The American Spectator.
Brandon J. Weichert was interviewed by Gordon G. Chang for the Gatestone Institute’s assessment on the tech war.
It is only through competition with China in the biotech market that Washington will ensure advanced capabilities are not so readily handed over to Chinese biotech firms (and, therefore, the Chinese military). In this way we may slow China’s development into a biotechnology superpower and give ourselves the time we need to better compete with China in this vital area.

“The U.S. government must, therefore, begin increasing regulations on what are, in fact, American corporations that have begun ignoring their civic duty to their homeland.

“According to the snapshots of the pending NSS that have been released to the public thus far, the most important elements are the inclusion of space weaponization and technological threats. This has been something that few NSS memos have ever seriously addressed. Fact is, rival states are increasingly looking to find the strategic high ground of space as a place to threaten the United States and fundamentally debilitate America’s military supremacy. Whomsoever manages to place orbital weapons systems in space—using space as a means for power projection—will dominate the rest of the 21st century.”
“The Air Force is institutionally incapable of fully resourcing space operations, and will always view space as a secondary function to their primary mission of air dominance.”
“If DARPA and other ‘innovation hubs’ in the government cannot or will not accomplish their core mission, then they are unnecessary and should be cut.”
