FPF #262 – Great Powers

Read Scott Horton's new book Fool's Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan

On FPF #262, I discuss the US relationship with Russia and China. In a move supported by NSA John Bolton, Trump suggested the US will withdraw from the INF Treaty. The President also called for an increase in the US nuclear arsenal. 

Secretary of State Pompeo is warning against China’s ‘Belt and Road’ loans. The Congress is passing legislation to open a new US agency dedicated to counter the Chinese loans. The US also sailed two warships through the Taiwan Strait.
