A US General has called for action to break a potential blockade of Taiwan by Chinese ships. The General reportedly stated, “We’ve got to sink the ships” in order to prevent a Chinese takeover of Taiwan.
The comments come amid growing tensions between the US and China over the status of Taiwan, which China claims as its own territory. The US has long been a supporter of Taiwan, and has recently increased its military presence in the region in response to Chinese aggression.
The General’s remarks have sparked controversy, with some critics arguing that such an action would risk a major conflict between the two superpowers. However, others have defended the General’s position, arguing that the US must take decisive action to protect Taiwan’s sovereignty. The situation remains fluid, and it is unclear what steps the US may take in response to the potential blockade. However, the General’s comments highlight the growing tensions between the two nations, and the increasing likelihood of a military conflict over Taiwan.
