When asked at the Aspen Security Forum if the Pentagon could defend the island, he replied, “We absolutely have the ability. There’s no doubt about it.”
The Chinese Foreign Ministry urged the United States to end all military ties with Taiwan
Consider General Meli It is unlikely that China will take any military action against Taiwan in the next 24 months. Still, he said, “the Chinese are clearly building up the ability to give their leaders these options in the future.”
He also said that the United States sticks to its policy of “strategic ambiguity” on protecting Taiwan.
Milley said that in a hypothetical situation where China decides to take control of the island, it will be the US president who decides whether or not the Americans will intervene.
“We certainly have the ability to do all kinds of things around the world, including this if needed,” Millie insisted.
He added that the United States believes that the differences between China and Taiwan should be resolved peacefully on the basis of the will of the people on both sides.
China’s army expansion
In recent years, with the expansion of the Chinese military, the former military polarization in which the United States and Russia, the nuclear superpowers, participated has added to the rivalry with China.
In August, the Chinese tested a military-capable hypersonic missile that flew around the world at a relatively low altitude at more than five times the speed of sound.
Milley claimed that this test was almost as symbolic as Russia’s impressive 1957 launch of Sputnik, the first satellite to be launched into space.
He insisted that the hypersonic test was “critical,” highlighting Chinese advances in military technology. “We are witnessing one of the greatest movements in the global geostrategic power ever,” he said.
The result, according to Millie, is that the world is entering a period of “potentially more turbulent strategically” than it has been in the decades after World War II.
