Gordon G. Chang, author of The Coming Collapse of China and Nuclear Showdown: North Korea Takes on the World, will address the most dangerous trend in the world today: the growing axis between China and Russia. The discussion will cover their:
expansionist paths of both nations by use of force,
targeting of the United States as their primary adversary,
coordination of foreign policies to undermine the post-war liberal international system,
sinking economies, and
support for rogue states such as North Korea and Iran.
Specifically, Mr. Chang will be speaking to the impact that the relationship between China and Russia will have on the 2016 United States Presidential election.
