China is leading the world in hypersonic technology due to Beijing setting a clear investment strategy to its industrial base, a panel of national security experts said Monday. "[The U.S.] commercial sector [and] Silicon Valley will never ever develop" the technologies associated with hypersonic weapons, Roger Zakheim, a member of the National Defense Strategy Commission, said at the Hudson Institute. Hypersonic glide weapons "can hold at risk carriers, bases" in an attempt to change U.S. behavior in places like the South China Sea. Zakheim added, "it is the [hypersonic missile] capability that will keep us out" of the Indo-Pacific [and] rendered [aircraft carriers] operationally useless."

"Fifth, the majority of members on the commission are all part of what Eisenhower called the Military Industrial Complex. On the commission there were two retired flag officers and several former defense officials, some of whom work for groups supported by the Pentagon. In fact, the co-chair of the 2018 commission, Eric Edelman, the former undersecretary of defense under George W. Bush, has been a member of the 2010 and 2014 groups."

So MIC insiders are telling us to spend more on the MIC.
