The End of America’s Era of Military Primacy

As China’s advanced arsenal grows, the Pentagon must focus on Emerging Technologies, not Traditional Weapons Platforms

Could the U.S. lose a war with China? That alarming possibility was one of the last things I ever discussed in person with my old boss, Sen. John McCain. In late 2017, we had just left a briefing that he had asked me to arrange for his colleagues about China’s growing arsenal of Precision-Strike Missiles, Long-Range Sensors, Counter-Space Capabilities and Other Advanced Weapons. Every senator was invited to the briefing; about a dozen showed up. They got a depressing dose of reality.

Did you catch this sentence?...

“Every Senator Was Invited to the Briefing; About a Dozen Showed Up.”

It makes me sad to blame Deceased Senator John McCain for the lack of attendance at his Depressing Dose of Reality Briefing.

He was at fault for calling his briefing at 2pm. He should have known that at 2pm About 88% His Senate Colleagues were already standing in line for the Opening of Happy Hour at 5pm.

Would I kid u?
