The U.S. and China each have or will soon have the ability to inflict grave harm upon the other by nuclear attack, attacks on satellites, or attacks on computer networks. Paradoxically, despite each countryńˇ╗s power, its strategic vulnerability is growing. Vulnerability to nuclear attack is familiar to both countries. But the U.S. and China are also becoming exposed to damage in space and cyberspace because of their growing reliance on those domains for their prosperity and security, as well as each sideńˇ╗s increasing antisatellite (ASAT) and cyber war capabilities. For China, economic integration, production, and commerce ńˇţ and thus, sustained growth and perhaps political stability ńˇţ depend vitally on data sharing, making networks and satellites as strategic as they are for the U.S. All three strategic domains are "offense dominant"ńˇţtechnologically, economically, and operationally. Defenses against nuclear, ASAT, and cyber weapons are difficult and yield diminishing results against the offensive capabilities of large, advanced, and determined states such as the U.S. and China. This report assesses the prospect of U.S.-Chinese competition in these domains and develops three related analytic findings upon which their recommendations are built. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
