U.S.-China tensions rise over Taiwan
Fareed Zakaria GPS
Aug 7, 2022

As China continues its military drills around Taiwan, Oriana Skylar Mastro, Fellow at Stanford's Freeman Spogli Institute and a Senior Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, explains why this is not just a show of force by China, but an actual combat rehearsal. Then, Richard Haass, president of The Council on Foreign Relations, and Susan Shirk, Chair at UCSD's 21st Century China Center, join Fareed for a discussion on what's the best way to preserve peace in and around Taiwan and how to lower the tension in U.S.-China relations. Plus, CNN's national security analyst, Peter Bergen, on the American killing of Al Qaeda's leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri, and what it means for the global state of terrorism.
