China and the risk of nuclear conflict

In your conversation with Colby about the need to take a tougher military stance against China, you spent over an hour and the topic of nuclear conflict only came up once, in passing, in a throwaway line from Colby. Why isn’t this a bigger concern to you, and if it is, why didn’t you bring it up on the pod? The more time that passes between today and the end of the Cold War, the more I hear policy wonks completely ignore this topic when it comes to discussions about Russia and China. It’s extremely disturbing, and I fear that the next generation of American leaders are so cavalier about and ignorant to the potential horrors of nuclear war that they’re steering us towards existential danger.
