Navy Admiral Warns China Might Invade Taiwan This Year

  • Admiral Mike Gilday, Chief of U.S. Naval Operations, warned that China may invade Taiwan this year.
  • “It’s not just what President Xi [Jinping] says, but it’s how the Chinese behave and what they do, and what we’ve seen over the past 20 years is that they have delivered on every promise they’ve made earlier than they said they were going to deliver on it,” Gilday said.
  • Last week, Chinese President Xi Jinping declared a new effort to accelerate China’s military growth and forcefully “oppose Taiwan independence” if needed.
