Will the US lose to China in the War!? with General Robert Spalding

Episode Summary

882: China-Taiwan tension has been rising every day, what will happen if the war breaks out? Will the US lose? In this episode, General Robert Spalding joined me to break down what could happen if the China-Taiwan war breaks out!

Episode Notes

This might be one of the most pessimist episodes that I have done! The China-Taiwan tension has been rising every day since The Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan. The question is what is she doing there? Why is she there? What brought her to Taiwan?

With all the questions that I have, I invited General Robert Spalding, retired United States Air Force brigadier general, a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, this work focuses on U.S.–China relations, economic and national security, and the Asia-Pacific military balance, and basically asked him, will the US win if the war breaks out?

We break down whether was it propaganda when the media says China is enraged at the US because Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan. How much did China control? How much does the US rely on China in terms of Supply Chain? Could China have been sabotaging us all these years?
