It’s about it

  • Xi Jinping wants to modernize the Chinese army.

  • China’s rise raises fears of an invasion of Taiwan. The United States views China as its biggest geopolitical threat, national security reports have revealed.

Chinese president You are Jinping at this year’s congress of the Communist Party, he described the global security situation as increasingly unstable and uncertain – and in this context announced that the People’s Republic will comprehensively strengthen military equipment and training, because “mirror,” he writes. Military rearmament is fully in line with still an authoritarian courseto which Xi is cropping the land.

“The Great Event Is Approaching”

The commander-in-chief of the US nuclear forces also surrendered himself In a recent speech, he was extremely concerned about the international security situation and that China might lose the US militarily. “The big event is coming unstoppably. And it won’t be long before we’re going to be tested in ways we haven’t been in a long time.”

The head of Stratcom, the agency that manages America’s nuclear capabilities, further warned: “This Ukrainian crisis that we’re in right now is just a warm-up.” Competitors like China are outpacing the U.S., dramatically, Richard said. The admiral believes that the United States must increase its deterrence or it will be ambushed.

“As I assess our level of deterrence against China, the ship is slowly sinking,” Richard said. “It’s going down slowly, but it’s going down because they’re bringing their skills to market faster than we are.” If the trend continues, it won’t matter how good the U.S. commanders, forces, and preparation are—they won’t have the resources. “And that’s a very short-term problem,” Richard points out.

Growing fears of an invasion of Taiwan

China’s rearmament also raises new concerns for Invasion of Taiwan. Xi Jinping has long publicly sought to control the island republic. Back in October, the United States published a document on national security in which it called China, not Russia, the biggest geopolitical threat.

“The People’s Republic of China is the only competitor that not only intends to transform the international order, but also has the economic, diplomatic, military and technological power to do so.” In competition with China, the next ten years are “definitely a decisive decade”.
