Fears of a Chinese attack on Taiwan are growing, and Taiwan isn’t sure who would help if it happened

Posted by in category: futurism

This is especially daunting for Taiwan, as it is unclear whether it can get help from anyone else if, or when, the time comes.

In March, Adm. Philip Davidson, the head of US Indo-Pacific Command at the time, told the Senate Armed Services Committee that China could invade Taiwan in the next six years.

A few days later, Adm. John Aquilino, Davidson’s successor, declined to comment on that assessment but said China views Taiwan “as their No. 1 priority,” and that, in his opinion, “this problem is much closer to us than most think.”
