China's Laying the Groundwork to Defeat US Military Around the World

It’s no secret that China is behind large infrastructure projects all over the world, and in fact, that’s exactly what its Belt and Road Initiative is all about. But what is lesser known is how China uses commercial developments to its military advantage. In this episode of China Unscripted, we discuss China’s militarization of its commercial projects, whether Xi Jinping will need to invade Taiwan to cement his role as China’s king, and how China might take Taiwan into its fold. Joining us in this episode is Ian Easton, the senior director at the Project 2049 Institute and author of The Chinese Invasion Threat: Taiwan’s Defense and American Strategy in Asia.
