The US would lose a war with China fought in the Pacific, is unable to defend Taiwan from an invasion and fears the Guam military base is at risk now, US defense sources have warned.
'Eye-opening' Pentagon war games have revealed growing fears the US is vulnerable to threats from China and that any attack would lead to the US 'suffering capital losses', the sources said.
The worrying analysis is expected to come to light in the Pentagon's 2020 China military power report this summer.
The stark warning comes as tensions continue to mount between the two nations after US President Donald Trump has blasted China's handling of the coronavirus pandemic and repeatedly suggested the nation lied about the extent of its crisis.
China's sole operational aircraft carrier, the Liaoning in the East China Sea. US defense sources told The Times that one Pentagon simulation based on the year 2030 when China would have new attack submarines, aircraft carriers and destroyers resulted in the US being overwhelmed
US defense sources told The Times that one Pentagon simulation based on the year 2030 when China would have new attack submarines, aircraft carriers and destroyers resulted in the US being overwhelmed by the nation's force.
The threat is more immediate than 2030, however, with every US base in the Indo-Pacific Command region considered to be at risk of attack now because China has ramped up its supply of medium-range ballistic missiles.
The US island territory Guam, home to three US military bases, is a particular concern, the games revealed.
'China has long-range anti-ship ballistic missiles and hypersonic [more than five times the speed of sound] missiles,' one US defence source told The Times.
Analysis from US experts on China have issued similar warnings.
Bonnie Glaser, director of the China power project at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies in Washington and a consultant for the US government on east Asia, told The Times that Taiwan is the 'most volatile issue' between the two nations and fears tensions could erupt in a nuclear war.
Taiwan has increasingly found itself caught in the middle of the political games between the two superpowers.
At that point China must secure territory that could be used for a counter thrust. That would mean South East Asia, The Philippines, Japan and Australia and New Zealand. Subversives in the latter two have been diligently striving to disarm the people for the glorious day the Chinese flag is risen on their new territory. It is The Art of War after all.
Ignorance is blissful defeat.
