Fei-Ling Wang, professor in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, was quoted in the article "Chinese Veterans of Korean War Urge Peace as Tensions with US Mount" published June 25 in India's Deccan Herald.

Excerpt:

Fei-Ling Wang, professor at the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs at Georgia Institute of Technology, says China's rapid economic growth has "narrowed significantly" the two rivals' military gap.

“In the Western Pacific region, particularly near the Chinese Mainland, the PLA (People’s Liberation Army) has evidently acquired a substantially even – if not superior – capability versus the United States,” Wang says.

Wang argues that since 1949 China’s ruling Communist Party has viewed “American power as a mortal political threat.”

There is a “deep incompatibility and enmity” between Washington and Beijing that “has become harder to ignore or conceal” since Xi came to power in 2013.

The ongoing trade war and the Covid-19 pandemic ony revealed and highlighted that rivalry,” ways Wang.

The Cold War, during most of which China was a major opponent of the United States, seems (to have) never really ended between Beijing and Washington, and now is just being rekindled.”
