Sadly, answers are not forthcoming. Given how important the amphibious warship capability is for both the United States and China–and how few both sides have at the moment–it does seem reasonable that both sides would be targeting these systems before the actual shooting war erupted (and it will. Soon). And, if these events are related to some ongoing shadow war between the United States and China, how much longer until it escalates…and what happens when Chinese or American sailors or Marines are killed?
In Brandon J. Weichert’s latest column for The Asia Times, he argues that If the US is to retain its lead in cyberspace, new technologies must be readily brought to bear against China.
Brandon J. Weichert joined David Zhang of NTD Television to discuss his new book, WINNiNG SPACE, and the threat that China and Russia pose the United States in the strategic high ground.
Brandon J. Weichert discusses Donald Rumsfeld’s true legacy in his recent Asia Times op-ed: While some of the details of Rumsfeld’s new way of war may have missed their mark in the Global War on Terror, his vision and his fears are still relevant today.

Brandon J. Weichert joins Fox Business Channel’s Maria Bartiomo to discuss the true nature of China’s threat to America’s global dominance. We are on notice, as Rumsfeld used to say, but we have not noticed.
Brandon J. Weichert joined Eric Cervone on his podcast, HONEST OFFENSE, to discuss his new book, WINNING SPACE: HOW AMERICA REMAINS A SUPERPOWER (Republic Book Publisher).
The Washington Free Beacon interviewed me and a handful of other space experts about the threat that China’s new modular space station poses. Check it out!
Brandon J. Weichert pours some cold water on the hopes of postmodern Western liberal imperialists who assume that China will become a democracy. It won’t. Act accordingly.
In Brandon J. Weichert’s recent Asia Times column, he argues that COVID-19 highlighted the strengths and weaknesses of the authoritarians and democrats…innovation will be key to beating the authoritarians and America’s successful creation of vaccines shows how to do innovation right.
We have become like the Soviets in Afghanistan: attempting to impose a bizarre, foreign ideology upon an ancient, traditional, alien people. The results have been as disastrous for the US as it was for the USSR. Have we learned our lesson or are we doomed to repeat these mistakes ad nauseam?
