We sat down to talk Asian security at the Jefferson Hotel’s Quill Bar. Our guests included:
- Dean Cheng, Senior Fellow at the Heritage Foundation.
- Robert Haddick, an independent consultant for special operations command and author of Fire on the Water: China, America, and the Future of the Pacific (Naval Institute Press, 2014).
- TX Hammes, who needs no introduction.
With Ryan Evans moderating, the participants buzzed through a number of contentious issues related to Asian security including the ongoing protests in Taiwan, North Korea, tensions between South Korea and Japan, and whether or not the U.S. military is appropriately preparing itself for a potential conflict with China.
Have a listen!
