Trump "US will go into war with China"

Trump "US will go into war with China"
By Christopher R Rice

Steve Bannon, the chief strategist in Trump's White House, said the US would go to war with China within five to 10 years during a radio broadcast.

Mr Bannon said war would erupt in the South China Sea in "five to 10 years". He said: "They’re taking their sandbars and making basically stationary aircraft carriers and putting missiles on those. They come here to the United States in front of our face—and you understand how important face is—and say it’s an ancient territorial sea."

The US and China have been engaged in a back-and-forth dispute over military build-up and territorial claims in the region for some years. In December the US said it would base its deadliest fighter jets in Australia, and days later China seized an unmanned US Navy drone.

It followed a diplomatic spat around then-President-elect Trump's congratulatory phone call with Taiwan's Prime Minister Tsai Ing-wen, which broke with decades of US policy. Mr Trump has been forthright about China's influence, blaming it for the loss of American jobs.

The war of words recently heated up when a Chinese military official was quoted as saying talk of war with the US under Mr Trump "are not just slogans, they are becoming a practical reality".

Trevor McCrisken, associate professor of politics and international studies at the University of Warwick, said that if war broke out "we would be looking, I would imagine, at World War Three".

He said: "I really do think that would be the end of life as we know it on Earth.

I fought in the Vietnam War. We had the best-trained soldiers in the world. We had the best aircraft carriers. We had the best planes. We had the best tanks, guns, bombs, submarines, etc.......and we could not beat those "little brown guys" with straw hats and sandals into submission.

Right now in the Middle East, the US still has the best military in the world with the best everything. And yet, we are still fighting and losing to "brown guys" in rags and sandals. Why is that? Overly confidence is our country's downfall. Never underestimate your enemy.

Chinas military is massive and they are better equipped than our past adversaries in sandals. Trump is just looking for a fight to stroke his weak ego. The sacrifice will be the lives of our soldiers which he really doesn't care about. Don't kid yourself. He's stroking his ego. Nobody wins in a war.

Back in 1966 many of us were sent to Vietnam for no good reason. Same in Iraq. No weapons of mass destruction. Lets not let that happen again.

Experts have told Underground Newz they believe such a conflict would be catastrophic, throwing the entire globe into turmoil and potentially ending "life as we know it on Earth".
