Manufacturing Fear...of a China War
There's a dark farce at the heart of the "preparing for war with China" industry
Politico has published the latest in its series of all-too-credulous reporting on people and institutions with power, this time as a long-form piece tracking how the Pentagon is preparing to wage war with China.
That probably doesn’t sound very new, and it’s not. But framing it as “The Pentagon is freaking out…because America might lose” is noteworthy. Farcical, but noteworthy.
