A few of Joe Biden’s advisers know China well and want him to be tough. I wrote “The Hundred Year Marathon” with a lot of declassified materials that CIA and FBI approved of me disclosing. My goal was to wake people up.
Last week, the Defense Department announced the appointment of Michael Pillsbury, a China expert at the Hudson Institute, as the board’s new chair, and Lisa Gordon-Hagerty, formerly an administrator at the National Nuclear Security Administration, as a member.
"Pillsbury is a knowledgeable hawk with an interest in Chinese history and culture. Unlike ignorant China hawks in the US, Pillsbury has a passion for understanding China" said Lu Xiang, a senior fellow Chinese Academy of Social Sciences
In September 2015, China expert Michael Pillsbury published The Hundred-Year Marathon: China’s Secret Strategy to Replace America as the Global Superpower, in which he expressed regret over the US’ weak China policy. This might have contributed to US President Donald Trump’s win in 2016.
A book by Michael Pillsbury, the leading American authority on China, drew attention around the world when it was published in 2015, serving as a wake-up call on China’s supposed secret strategy to replace the United States as the global superpower.
