You are cordially invited to a webinar presentation on the topic:
Taiwan: China’s Most Important Target On The Way To Global Hegemony
Mr. Rick Fisher
Wednesday, December 9th, 2020
5:00 PM – 6:00 PM ET
**This event will also be streamed live on Facebook. **
This event is part of the China Lecture Series sponsored by The Institute of World Politics.
About the lecture: In 2019 China began to apply noticeable military pressure on Taiwan, which it has increased considerably in 2020. China now proclaims in its media almost weekly that it will invade and conquer democratic Taiwan. This mounting threat to Taiwan will be examined, in addition to why the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) must destroy this democracy in order to achieve hegemony first in Asia, and then the world. Yet, all is not lost, there is still time for the United States to help Taiwan deter a Chinese invasion and by doing so, prevent a dark age of CCP hegemony.
