Breakfast Talk with Lieutenant General Chip Gregson

Policy and Strategy without a Designated Enemy

China’s rise presents a policy and strategy challenge that is unique in the American experience. Since at least the beginning of World War II we have – with only brief exceptions – always had a declared enemy that served as a single organizing principle for our national security policies and military strategies: Axis, Soviet, and “terror”. Our government’s current national security structure was built to counter the existential Soviet threat. That organizing principle no longer applies. Economic, commercial and political incentives vie with security concerns. Clarity of policy and strategy is more difficult but at the same time more important.
