The U.S. military "absolutely" could defend Taiwan from a potential Chinese attack if asked to do so, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark Milley said Wednesday.
Speaking at the Aspen Security Forum, Milley said he did not expect China to attempt to seize the self-governing island in the next 24 months, but should it happen, U.S. forces “absolutely have the capability” to defend Taipei, “no question about that.”
He also allowed that Beijing is “clearly and unambiguously building the capability to provide those options to the national leadership if they so choose at some point in the future.”

I trust this guy about as far as I can throw him!
Aspen did he wear his tutu ?
Well, I COULD go kill my neighbor with an axe tomorrow. But that seems unlikely, since my neighbor is a nice guy — and there’s a cop who lives next door and the cop would probably react badly if I took the action which I COULD take. So I won’t.
Now I’m worried.
“Could” is not a word to hang Global Diplomacy on.
Is General Silley going to call the British Marines for help? 🤪
Hey milley, do us all a favor and send all your woke cross dressers to the front line. Maybe China will do us a favor.
You and whose army?
weak woke milley does not inspire confidence
Didn’t do very good against the UK special forces in a recent war game.
Could-a, Should-a, Would-a.
Shut the f*ck up you traitor.
You should be blood eagled and hung from the Washington Monument.
Miss Milley will call the Red ChiComs and tell them where our carriers are and warn them to stay away.
Unless you again tell your CCP contacts about what you are thinking, dickhead
"We *won't*, but we could. Y'know, if we felt like it. So don't test us by invading Japan." [aide covers mike and whispers in his ear] "I mean, Russia, don't mess with us by invading Russia."
Milley: US ‘absolutely’ could defend Taiwan from China..... Yea, like for what, an HOUR or TWO????
“You and whose army?”
Kind of a good question. Taiwan is a little dot beside China. We have pledged blah blah blah. Taiwan might be successfully defended, but in my opinion only by economic force from many countries.
