The US is watching “very, very closely” for signs of an attack by China on Taiwan, the chief of the US military has said.
“There’s no indications or warnings of anything imminent at this time,” General Mark Milley, the chairman of the US joint chiefs of staff, told BBC News. “But again, we watch it very, very closely.”
He said that a decision to attack by Beijing would be a “political” and policy choice, and based on China’s view of the “cost risk-benefit at the time”, as he acknowledged the repeated threats made by president Xi Jinping to reclaim the island by force if necessary.
The statement comes amid increasing anxiety among Taiwanese that China will invade the self-governed island, prompting locals to take gun training.
Last week, Britain’s foreign secretary Liz Truss issued a warning to China at the G7 summit in Madrid saying that any attempt to invade Taiwan would be a “catastrophic miscalculation”.
She said Beijing was in danger of making the same mistake as Russian president Vladimir Putin, as she added: “That is exactly what we saw in the case of Ukraine – a strategic miscalculation by Putin.”

War: it’s FANtastic!
China will invade Siberia. That’s where China’s future lies.
Lol! His looks, his manner and even his posture makes me think this guy is British. Looks like it was filmed some 20 years ago.
That fagot-ponce is keeping a close eye on the chicom military’s diversity and gender-knowledge levels...
China appears to be getting ready to rekindle the 1930s, but with itself an aggressor instead of a victim. It is gobbling up islands in the western Pacific (or creating them) and threatening all and sundry nations in the area.
Nice Three Gorges Dam you got there Xi, be a shame if somptin were to happen to it...
Yeah I sleep a lot better knowing Frilly Milley is on the job.
Well, if the Chinese use the wrong pronoun .... 💥💥💥
“China will invade Siberia. That’s where China’s future lies.”
Or, be welcomed in depending upon how things go in the next few months. Methinks you’re on to something. Rare Earth “goods”, and a shit ton of land would make Beijing very happy. ;)
I think when the Chinese DO invade Taiwan, a segment of the invasion will indeed be done very quietly, but another segment of the invasion will be done very openly, blatantly and in a way that cannot be denied. Their News Reports will be reporting live on that story, with permission from The State.
I suspect many Chinese military have less than zero respect for President Biden and cannot wait to (politically) rub his face into that mess he himself began back in Afghanistan. That was a hard lesson for the entire developed world to learn about America’s status during this presidency.
Or Kommie Harris...
Or Bella Pelosi...
That's very,very bad.
Are they using their full Woke Senses ?
See Post #15
I guess General Woke is waiting for his Chinese counterpart to call him before the attack.
I think that’s Mr. Bean. He did some really funny stuff…
heh heh heh good catch
