Under Construction

November 30, 2009

This is the new blog Facing China.  The name comes from what I do every day when I go to class – my trip takes me right along the Taiwan Strait, and every day it reminds me about the challenges and opportunities attendant with China’s rise in stature and strength in the Asia-Pacific region and the world.  Since I am writing from Taiwan, this blog will mainly focus on Asia-Pacific strategic security, national defense, and intelligence-related issues, but I must admit that as an active-duty US Marine, I anticipate that I will serve in my nation’s wars again once I finish studies here in 2011, so I am also keeping an eye on the growing field of counterinsurgency and have an interest in history (military and otherwise) as well.  I hope this short introduction gives you an idea of what this blog aims to be.

Stay tuned for further material.
