The next commander in chief’s top national security challenge is going to be Communist China. Therefore, as we consider applicants for the job, it's imperative that we establish what they think about the myriad threats posed by the PRC and what they propose to do about it.
The necessity for such clarity was underscored earlier this week by former Vice President Joe Biden. In remarks during an Iowa campaign stop, that leading Democratic candidate ridiculed the idea that the Chinese are going to "eat our lunch," saying we should instead be helping them.
This statement tracks with a pro-China stance Biden struck last May before he professed in June, in the face of considerable criticism, that "You bet I’m worried about China."
China should worry us – and our leaders must be prepared to counter it effectively.
