The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) recently threatened Australia that if it acquires nuclear-powered submarines, it would lose its “privilege” of not being targeted by Chinese nukes.
Australia is considering “going nuclear” as part of its AUKUS defense pact with the United States and the UK.
Is the Chinese Communist Party’s bite as bad as its bark? How seriously should threats verbal and otherwise from the CCP be taken? And are there more covert dangers from the CCP we should be focused on?
We explore these questions with Kay Rubacek, author of “Who Are China’s Walking Dead: a personal journey into the strange world of communist culture and officialdom,” and James Gorrie, author of “The China Crisis: How China’s Economic Collapse Will Lead to a Global Depression.”
Hosted by NTD journalist Brendon Fallon, Wide Angle is following the latest political developments in the United States and abroad, and finding the connection between these and the larger global trends of our times.
