The United States is ill-equipped to fight twenty-first-century warfare with its antique defense arsenal maintained by an outdated bureaucratic system. Now, as great power competition returns and U.S. military dominance is under increasing threat from China, the United States can no longer afford to procrastinate essential restructuring of its defense strategy. With the world in forced lockdown, will the United States seize the moment?

Join us on Monday, June 1 at 2:00 pm EDT for a discussion with Carnegie Endowment for International Peace senior fellow Christian Brose on whether the United States can fundamentally rethink its defense strategy and avoid irreversible consequences.
