The Biden administration is hesitant to call our competition with China a new cold war, even though Beijing has zero qualms about making the parallels with our decades-long struggle with the Soviet Union abundantly clear. We are once again discussing a “Sputnik moment,” a nuclear-arms race and a missile gap — all throwbacks to the 1950s-1980s — thanks to China’s aggressive pursuit of military capabilities designed to deter and defeat the United States. Why - Biden is weak and owned by China.
Whatever Beijing may say and however we may try to comfort ourselves with cushioning delusions, the Chinese have repeatedly made it plain that they intend to hold US bases and our homeland at risk. The example of Sputnik, the primitive Soviet satellite launched in 1957 that raised the prospect of the US’s losing the space race, was on everyone’s lips with a bombshell Financial Times report over the weekend. According to the FT, the Chinese tested a nuclear-capable hypersonic missile that circled the Earth once before descending on its target, thus demonstrating “an advanced space capability that caught US intelligence by surprise.”
It’s not clear why anyone would be shocked. It wasn’t a secret that China and Russia were developing these technologies, and indeed, it wasn’t a secret that China had leapt ahead of us. (The Chinese, bringing the same transparency they’ve shown regarding the origins of COVID-19, say it was just a routine space launch.) Hypersonic missiles are both unpredictable and fast — six times faster than a Tomahawk missile. That means they are uniquely suited to defeat our missile defenses.
