Canvassing Trump with a war on China? U.S. Defense Chief Urgently Dispels Rumors That It’s Not Happening

On the afternoon of October 29, the Ministry of National Defense (MOD) held a regular press conference, at which the Director of the Information Bureau of the Ministry of National Defense (MND) and the spokesman of the Ministry of National Defense (MND), Senior Colonel Wu Qian, answered reporters’ questions.

Wu Qian said, recently, the U.S. Secretary of Defense Esper through military diplomatic channels to make a clarification specifically on this, said the relevant reports are not factual, the U.S. side has no intention of creating a military crisis against China, and is willing to establish a stable, constructive, results-oriented relationship between the two militaries with the Chinese side, establish the necessary mechanisms to reduce risks, strengthen communication and cooperation in areas of common interest.

We believe that in the current situation, it is very important to maintain communication between the Chinese and U.S. militaries. We call on the United States to practice what it preaches, keep its commitments, and take concrete measures to stop military provocations in China’s direct sea and airspace, as well as actions that undermine China’s core interests and major concerns. If anyone dares to provoke a conflict at sea, China will resolutely respond to it and firmly safeguard its national sovereignty and security interests. It is hoped that the U.S. and China will go in the opposite direction, strengthen communication, control risks, enhance mutual trust, prevent miscalculation, and push China-U.S. relations back to the right track of coordination, cooperation and stability.

Brief comment: There is a possibility that the U.S. military will provoke a small-scale military conflict in order to suppress and contain China, and the U.S. military should be more vigilant about this.

The most important thing is to say that the U.S. military will create a conflict with China for such reasons as “creating an October Surprise for Trump,” which is a bit funny. To step down or not. To take a huge political risk for such a presidential run, unless the U.S. military brass are collectively on the wrong medication.
