Ya fucking think?
Four-star General John E. Hyten, the outgoing Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, warned this week that communist China’s military progression is “stunning” and that the U.S. must take immediate action to remain the world’s preeminent superpower.
Hyten made the remarks following China’s second hypersonic missile test, which reportedly caught U.S. intelligence officials off guard.
“Calling China a pacing threat is a useful term because the pace at which China is moving is stunning,” Hyten said on Thursday. “The pace they’re moving and the trajectory they’re on will surpass Russia and the United States if we don’t do something to change it. It will happen. So I think we have to do something.”
“It’s not just the United States but the United States and our allies because that’s the thing that really changes the game,” Hyten added. “If it’s the United States only, it’s going to be problematic in five years. But if it’s the United States and our allies, I think we can be good for a while.”
Hyten warned that the U.S. is currently only making “marginal progress” in responding to the growing Chinese threat because “the Department of Defense is still unbelievably bureaucratic and slow.”
While Biden puts an early lid on activities every day for his diaper change, sippy cup, and nap time, and the military is in tatters with a sideshow of the “diversity” and “inclusiveness” of gender and race identity fruitcakes, the ChiComs are busy marching ahead with their military buildup.
