A group of top U.S. officials has been sounding the alarm, almost continuously, in recent days in an attempt about what communist China is making preparations to do globally and that possible consequences from the United States, warning that war is now essentially inevitable at this point.
The top intelligence officer, Rear Adm. Mike Studeman, or J-2, for the East Asian command, stated this past week that they are warning that “it’s danger on all fronts” in reference to Chinese military aggression and that it’s not just Taiwan that U.S. officials are concerned about.
“This idea that it’s only a Taiwan scenario vs. many other areas where the Chinese are being highly assertive, coercive, is a failure in understanding complexity, because it’s not that simple,” he stated, going on to add that the scenario may not even be the current most likely as China is applying excessive pressure on “lots of its neighbors.”
While referencing the possibility of China launching a military invasion of Taiwan, stated Studeman, “To us, it’s only a matter of time, not a matter of ‘if,’ because if you understand the problem set, you understand that Taiwan will unlikely fold based on economic, and informational and diplomatic influence alone.”
Studeman went on to state that U.S. officials are currently describing the current warpath with China in the exact same way that Gen. Douglas McArthur described the lead-up to World War II.
“‘Too late,'” Studeman stated. “Too late in comprehending the deadly purpose of a potential enemy. Too late in realizing the mortal danger. Too late in preparedness. Too late in uniting all possible forces for resistance.”
Studeman went on to state that China plans to try and surpass the U.S. in order to become the world’s top superpower, also adding that “Machiavellian” Chinese dictator Xi Jinping has led China’s rise “through lying, cheating and stealing.”
He also stated that China is seeking to have “effective control” over entire populations and that what China is currently doing in Hong Kong is just a foreshadowing of what Chinese effective control will be like in other places.
These statements also come as Xi stated in a recent speech that was commemorating the Chinese Communist Party, one of the most murderous political parties in recent history, that China is working to “accelerate their modernization programs to develop capabilities to seize Taiwan.”
Robert Wood, an ambassador for the United States and the envoy to the Conference on Disarmament in Geneva, has stated this past week that China is currently looking at developing advanced nuclear weapons systems that the U.S. does not have. Giving examples of these “exotic nukes” that china is looking at currently include “nuclear-powered underwater drones and nuclear-powered cruise missiles.”
“This is something they are looking at,” stated Wood. “If they were to develop … these kinds of weapons and aerial systems, this has the potential to change the strategic stability environment in a dynamic way.”
