Dec. 9 - “War with China? When? Where? Why?” by Perry Ritenour

Why would China and America ever resort to open military conflict against one another? Both countries are so closely linked economically and financially that open warfare would be economic suicide for China and at least a severe financial dislocation to America. Conflict often originates from a series of smaller events that accumulate over time until one of the protagonists believes that he has no choice but to engage in open conflict. That protagonist today may reside in either Washington or Beijing. Open warfare may now be an option for a rising China and a withdrawing America. When, where, and why are key questions to be answered in this lecture.

Oakmont resident Dr. Perry Ritenour is a history graduate of the Virginia Military Institute and has a Ph.D. in Chinese Studies from Georgetown University. He has studied Chinese language and written articles for publication. Perry is an Army veteran who served as an Army intelligence officer during the Vietnam War and then traveled extensively throughout Asia as a bank executive and academic researcher.

Sunday Symposium will be dark over the holidays, returning on Jan. 6.
