Why America Decided Against Winning The Vietnam War

Why America Decided Against Winning The Vietnam War

Here's What You Need To Remember: Ho Chi Minh and his successors may have been, as Moyar points out, “doctrinaire Communists,” but Vietnam itself invaded another communist state in 1977, and went to war with one of its erstwhile patrons in 1979. The U.S. “loss” of Southeast Asia had no noticeable effect on the broader strategic balance between Moscow and Washington, a conclusion to which the Europeans had come at some point in the late 1960s.Mark Moyar, the scholar of U.S. foreign and military policy, recently had  an older argument on the viability of the Vietnam War. Moyar argues that the...

Ever” -- these are all of Obama’s responses to questions posed to her about being Biden’s second-hand-woman to defeat President or if she would...

It's Too Late To Stop China's Military Catch-Up With America

Here's What You Need To Remember: The United States has become increasingly aggressive about slowing down or halting China’s industrial espionage efforts. This has included indictments of PLA officers, broad condemnations of Chinese spying, and targeted reprisals against some Chinese firms. But given the extensive commercial contacts between China and the United States, stopping the flow of technology is virtually impossible.As the People’s Republic of China (PRC) emerged from war and revolution in 1949, it became apparent that the Chinese economy lacked the capacity to compete with the...

But this is no ordinary campaign.Biden hasn’t embraced the furthest left positions and likely never will.

Why China's Race For AI Dominance Depends On Math

Why China's Race For AI Dominance Depends On Math

THE WORLD first took notice of Beijing’s prowess in artificial intelligence (AI) in late 2017, when BBC reporter John Sudworth, hiding in a remote southwestern city, was located by China’s CCTV system in just seven minutes. At the time, it was a shocking demonstration of power. Today, companies like YITU Technology and Megvii, leaders in facial recognition technology, have compressed those seven minutes into mere seconds. What makes those companies so advanced, and what powers not only China’s surveillance state but also its broader economic development, is not simply its AI capability, but...
