Event description

Description

The threats facing the United States are dynamic and complex. In recent months, North Korea successfully conducted tests of an intercontinental ballistic missile as well as its sixth nuclear test. It has threatened to fire a missile toward Guam and provocatively launched a missile over Japan late last month.

While North Korea is the most pressing threat, there are others. Iran has a history of receiving help from North Korea with its own missile program, and has shown a willingness to advance that program in violation of U.N. sanctions. Russia is asserting itself as a global power. It continues to issue threats against the NATO alliance and is modernizing its conventional and strategic military programs. Like Russia, China is modernizing its nuclear missile force and its professed "no first use" pledge is in question. China is also working toward the capability to hold at risk vital U.S. space assets. In addition, non-state actors continue to wage a long war against the United States and allies.

On September 20, Hudson Institute will host General John E. Hyten, Commander of U.S. Strategic Command. General Hyten will provide an overview of his command vision, outline his priorities, and explain how deterrence has evolved since the end of the Cold War and how it remains vital to preventing war and preserving peace. After his remarks, General Hyten will take part in a discussion with Hudson Senior Fellow Rebeccah Heinrichs.


This event will be live streamed on Hudson's homepage. Doors will open at 1:00 pm and the program will begin at 1:30 pm.
