Future War, China, and the 5 Types of Warfare

Doug Casey's Take (ep.#11)

Doug Casey successfully predicted the likelihood of an unconventional attack on the United States just months before the attacks on 9/11

“An attack will soon come from outside American borders, in the form of war. But it won’t be declared war in the conventional sense with ballistic missiles. When the attack comes, it will be delivered through a much cheaper, reliable and unexpected form such as a car bomb, boat or plane.”

In this episode, Doug looks to the future of war and, in particular, the risk of war with China.

The Thucydides Trap (dilemma) is a term coined by American political scientist Graham T. Allison to describe an apparent tendency towards war when an emerging power threatens to displace an existing great power as the international hegemon. It was coined and is primarily used to describe a potential conflict between the United States and the People's Republic of China.
