China and the New Cold War
Start: Thursday, June 17, 2021• 7:00 PM
Join Danny Haiphong and Ben Norton for a discussion on China, US relations with China, and the demonizing framing of China as a rival to American hegemony.
The US is currently engaged in a program to modernize its entire nuclear arsenal. US citizens are told that Russia & China are doing the same. The US foreign policy establishment, through their implementation of the "Great-power competition" doctrine, manifestly situate China to replace the "Global War on Terror" as the next big threat to US national security. Join this discussion to better understand the motives behind US fear-mongering rhetoric towards China and analyze the reality of conditions on the ground.
