War with Red China Eminent Now


An irresponsible Chinese General made a very telling comment recently. He stated that when China takes over Taiwan, that the United States better not interfere otherwise China would be forced to retaliate with nuclear weapons against the United States. This sent shock waves throughout the civilized world and reminded us once again that we are dealing with Red China, a communist nation.

China recently celebrated its seventy-eighth anniversary of its armies founding and used the opportunity to send a harsh warning to Taiwan. The Chinese National Defense Minister claims that they are looking for policy of piece, yet simultaneously making clear that the re-unification as they call it of Taiwan will come, even if force becomes necessary.

China has set up 730 missiles capable of overwhelming Taiwan defenses aimed and ready to fire on a moment's notice? Perhaps Christmas Day to prevent the United States from interfering until it is too late, but this is pure speculation as the Chinese are notorious for long-term planning thru many generations. Taiwan has had open military exercises to show it can defend itself, but it is clear it is no match for Red China in the event of a military siege. Taiwan will need assistance and we are one of their allies.

China will continue to build up their war machine and be patient, but they have their sights on Taiwan and nothing is going to change that, so negotiations are not an option. We will end up in conflict and if this is done within the next decade, China will be embarrassed by massive loses and swift victories. We do live in historic times indeed.
