How China ‘Woke’ America

“What finally woke America up were two unforeseen developments.  First, the Chinese overreached and systematically began militarizing neutral islands in the South China Sea. They derided international commercial treaties. …. Second, Donald Trump got elected president, all the while screaming that the Chinese emperor had no clothes. The cheerleaders finally listened and admitted that China had been buck naked after all.  Now we will learn whether America woke up just in time or too late. Either way, no one will credit the loud Trump for warning that China was threatening not just the U.S. but the world as we have known it.”  Victor Davis Hanson, “How China ‘Woke’ America,” National Review, 10/3/2019.
