While the rest of the world paused to focus on COVID-19 the last year, even though the pandemic started there, the People's Republic of China did not stop her long, steady push out to the world to take the place she feels she in entitled to.
From the border of India to South America and back to the Western Pacific, China feels the wind at her back.
Where is China signaling she will be be the greatest challenge to her neighbors and the global community?
Returning to Midrats this Sunday from 5-6pm Eastern for the full hour will be our guest Dean Cheng.
