The Army of the Party

Chelsea and Stu met with Dennis Blasko, a "walking encyclopedia"" on the Chinese Military. Dennis has studied the Chinese language, military, and people since the 1970s through roles with the U.S. Army, traditional schooling, and years of in-country experiences. In this episode we talk about what you can learn from consuming Chinese news media (even if it is propaganda), how their conscription process works, and how China is using more than it's military in the Great Power Competition. Plus–can Stu break a brick over his head??Links to Chinese Sources: - http://english.chinamil.com.cn (English)- http://81.cn (Chinese)Corporate Partner Highlight: Contingent Globalhttps://www.contingentglobal.comSupport the show (https://gsof.org/individual-membership/)
