Arrow China Test-Fires A Hypersonic Missile: What This Means For Taiwan And The U.S.

China Test-Fires A Hypersonic Missile: What This Means For Taiwan And The U.S.

China’s increasing belligerence is raising alarm bells with its neighbors, especially Taiwan, and in the U.S. Beijing is making it frighteningly clear that it wants to take back that island sooner rather than later.

This episode of What’s Ahead lays out what must be done to deter such an attack, as well as broader strategic moves.

Astonishingly, Beijing doesn’t seem to grasp the fact that if it becomes even more menacing, Japan—and South Korea—has the means to quickly develop nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them. Japan has already made clear that it will be substantially boosting its defense outlays on a scale that was inconceivable a few years ago.

About this writer: Steve Forbes

Steve Forbes is Chairman and Editor-in-Chief of Forbes Media. Steve’s newest project is the podcast “What’s Ahead,” where he engages the world’s top newsmakers, politicians and pioneers in business and economics in honest conversations meant to challenge traditional conventions as well as featuring Steve’s signature views on the intersection of society, economic and policy. Steve helped create the recently released and highly acclaimed public television documentary, In Money We Trust?, which was produced under the auspices of Maryland Public television. The film was inspired by the book he co-authored, Money: How the Destruction of the Dollar Threatens the Global Economy – and What We Can Do About It. Steve’s latest book is Reviving America: How Repealing Obamacare, Replacing the Tax Code and Reforming The Fed will Restore Hope and Prosperity co-authored by Elizabeth Ames (McGraw-Hill Professional). Steve writes editorials for each issue of Forbes under the heading of “Fact and Comment.” A widely respected economic prognosticator, he is the only writer to have won the highly prestigious Crystal Owl Award four times. The prize was formerly given by U.S. Steel Corporation to the financial journalist whose economic forecasts for the coming year proved most accurate. In both 1996 and 2000, Steve campaigned vigorously for the Republican nomination for the Presidency. Key to his platform were a flat tax, medical savings accounts, a new Social Security system for working Americans, parental choice of schools for their children, term limits and a strong national defense. Steve continues to energetically promote this agenda.
