Business Insider: The United States is not ready for war with China


The Business Insider on its website spoke about the extent of the United States’ readiness in the event of a war with China.

“While the world hopes to avoid a large-scale conflict between the United States and China, relations between the two superpowers continue to deteriorate,” the Business Insider stated.

US politicians, experts, and military leaders are now beginning to ask the question: How prepared is the United States if the threats from Beijing become more dangerous?

The United States has begun to prepare its economy for a possible conflict with China, but it’s a continuous work, and it hasn’t ended yet, stressing that the clash will be devastating.

Experts say that the United States must work to increase its military readiness.

The war will also have dire consequences for China and the US allies in the western Pacific.

The Business Insider pointed out that US President Joe Biden said that the United States will defend Taiwan if China attacks it, explaining that this is a departure from the policy of strategic ambiguity of previous administrations.

“As major adversaries, the United States and China could find themselves at war for other reasons, such as China’s militarization of the South China Sea, where US and Chinese military ships and aircraft often find themselves in close proximity,” Biden added.

According to the Business Insider, US intelligence officials confirmed that China is the most important threat to the national security of the United States, noting that experts confirmed that the conflict with Beijing would lead to an attack of military threats that the United States wasn’t prepared for.

US intelligence officials pointed out that the war is likely to destroy the armies involved and plunge the global economy into danger, which is a bleak scenario with far-reaching consequences, stressing that any war with China could be fought on multiple fronts, from air and sea to the web and financial markets.

“While the United States has many advantages, years of lack of investment and complacency have left America lacking in several key areas that it will need to strengthen to successfully counter threats from China”.

According to senior officials, such as General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, agree that the United States needs to increase its preparedness.

“While it would be reckless to predict the outcome of a war between the United States and China, the possibility of it happening has certainly caused experts to warn that the United States isn’t prepared,” he added.

Over the past few years, the US House of Representatives committees had conducted more than one simulation of a possible war with China, would be a horrific, bloody war.

Last March, Foreign Policy magazine described in an article the potential war between China and the United States as catastrophic war.
