POTENTIAL CHINA-US WAR AND EUROPEAN DEFENSE

Discussion of Possible Implications and Threats

Vojtěch BAHENSKÝ

The article discusses the implications of a potential outbreak of high-intensity violent conflict between the United States and China in Pacific for the defence of NATO’s eastern flank. It identifies limits of American ability to simultaneously project force to two distant regions as potentially critical weakness in case of concurrent conflict in Asia and threat to the eastern flank.
