China wants to become the dominant power in the Pacific, and for a while, it was gaining ground. However the United States is waking up to China's threat in the region and is fighting back. In this episode of China Unscripted, we talk about China's influence in the Solomon Islands, how the Solomon Islands is a case study on Chinese colonialism, and how China uses civilians to infiltrate other countries. Joining us in this episode is Cleo Paskal, a non-resident senior fellow for the Indo-Pacific at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. She's also a member of the Global Counter Terrorism Council.
