Join Hudson Institute Senior Fellow Rebeccah L. Heinrichs and U.S. Strategic Command’s Admiral Charles “Chas” Richard for a conversation on China’s nuclear program, what their strategic breakout portends for the United States and our allies, and how integrated deterrence must meet the challenges of today’s varied nuclear threat environment. Recently-discovered satellite images show evidence of nuclear missile fields in western China, each with nearly one hundred and twenty ICBM silos. In 2019, China test-launched more ballistic missiles than the rest of the world combined, and according to Admiral Richard, China has an active nuclear testing program. Is China close to achieving strategic breakout? How should the U.S. respond to these developments? Please join Hudson Institute for this timely discussion.
