The United States could start a new war. The country may enter into an armed confrontation with China to protect Taiwan. In this case, Vietnam may take the side of the United States. Military expert Elbridge Colby told The New Yorker about this.Colby previously held the position of Deputy Assistant to the Defense Minister for Strategy and Armed Forces Development. He believes that the remorse over the failure in Afghanistan is a “flower” compared to what the US expects in the future.
The expert is confident that the United States will get involved in a new war – this time with China. The reason will be the intention of the United States to ensure the independence of Taiwan.
According to Colby, only American intervention can guarantee the island’s freedom. The Chinese authorities have insisted for decades that Taiwan is part of the PRC. At the same time, the country is methodically building up its military strength: over the past 25 years, China’s military budget has increased by 10% annually.In addition, according to Colby, Washington may begin to prepare for a confrontation with Russia and Iran – after the confrontation with China is over.
