Seth Cropsey quoted in WSJ Editorial

Yorktown Institute president Seth Cropsey was referenced in the Wall Street Journal’s January 29th editorial, Telling the Truth About Possible War Over Taiwan, concerning Gen. Michael Minihan’s belief that war will break out over Taiwan in 2025.

Former naval officer Seth Cropsey explained on these pages last week that America isn’t investing in the ships and weapons stockpiles that would be required to support a long war in the Western Pacific. Such yawning gaps in U.S. preparedness make a decision by Beijing to invade or blockade the democratic island more likely. Preventing a war for Taiwan requires showing Beijing that the U.S. has the means and the will to fight and repel an invasion.
