America’s geopolitical challenges have rarely been more complex. China, Russia, and Iran threaten American interests in crucial areas of the globe. At the same time, rogue states such as North Korea and Syria threaten American security and pose complex regional challenges. Each power’s challenge to American statecraft is unique, and American policymakers have struggled to develop a cohesive strategy to deal with these threats.

Is the United States equipped to deal with the challenges these powers pose to our national security, diplomatic, and economic policies? How do leaders in Congress regard the rise of the revisionists? What steps can they take to rebuild and refocus American power around competition with great and rising powers while addressing the thorny problems of North Korea and Syria?

Join AEI’s Gary Schmitt as he welcomes House Homeland Security Committee Chairman and Senior Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee Michael McCaul (R-TX) for a conversation on these important issues.
