(TheConservativeNews.org) – The threat China poses to the US is multi-faceted, and it’s growing all the time. The communist-led nation does not usually warn of military action against Western powers; however, it can happen, and it’s never something to be taken lightly.
On Saturday, May 15, The Express published a report on an escalation of military tensions between China and the US over drills carried out by American, French, Japanese, and Australian personnel in the South China Sea. According to chief of the French naval staff Admiral Pierre Vandier, the exercises were “targeted at China” because of its worrying expansionist tendencies.
This relates particularly to the aggression China has shown toward Taiwan, leaving experts worried that conflict could break out there at any time.
However, China is not about to let itself appear intimidated. An editorial in the Global Times, which is regarded as a Chinese government media outlet, claims the US would be quickly beaten if any warfare were to break out in the South China Sea.
President Joe Biden has maintained a notoriously cozy relationship with China despite anti-American sentiments like this one. Is it time for him to wake up to this threat?
