42. General Mattis's 2018 National Defense Strategy prioritized China.....

General Mattis’s 2018 National Defense Strategy prioritized China and Russia as concerns and diminished the import of terrorist and asymmetric forces.

China is a strategic competitor using predatory economics to intimidate its neighbors while militarizing features in the South China Sea. China is leveraging military modernization, influence operations, and predatory economics to coerce neighboring countries to reorder the Indo-Pacific region to their advantage. As China continues its economic and military ascendance, asserting power through an all-of-nation long-term strategy, it will continue to pursue a military modernization program that seeks Indo-Pacific regional hegemony in the near-term and displacement of the United States to achieve global preeminence in the future. The most far-reaching objective of this defense strategy is to set the military relationship between our two countries on a path of transparency and non-aggression.
