Press TV: And in other news, a senior U.S. general has warned of a possible war with China over Taiwan as early as 2025, as the island remains a bone of contention between the world’s two biggest economies. General Mike Minahan issued the warning in an internal memo that first emerged on social media, but was later confirmed as genuine by the Pentagon. Manahan called for the maximum battle readiness. He said the main goal should be, quote, to deter and if required, defeat, China. He reasoned out that Taiwan’s presidential elections next year would offer China an excuse for aggression at the time when the US would be busy with its own race for the White House. Beijing considers Taiwan as an inseparable part of its territory. It has repeatedly warned against the island’s growing diplomatic and military nexus with the US. We’re now joined by geopolitical analyst Jeff Brown, who’s with us from Normandy. Mr. Brown, let’s start off with your thoughts on the recent comments from this senior U.S. general. He’s warned of a possible war with China, stating that the main goal with regards to Beijing should be, quote, to deter and if required, to defeat it. 

Jeff: First of all, that memo was not internal. It was released on purpose to to to show the world that the United States is the biggest, the baddest, and is ready to stand up to China. I’d like to point out a couple of salient points.  

Do people know that when the United States went to war against Japan during World War Two, that they only went to war against 18% of the Japanese army, 18%, and they still had a hard time defeating Japan? Do you think the United States is going to go to war against the entire army of China? It is? This is just optics to try to show Africans and Asians and Iranians, I think the latter know better, Europeans and Americans just how powerful and invincible the United States is. The other thing that almost nobody knows is that China and North Korea since 1961 have had and just renewed a mutual defense treaty. Therefore, if the United States goes to war against China, it goes to war against North Korea. Do you think the United States wants 1,300,000 North Korean soldiers pouring across the 38th parallel into South Korea? I mean, this is just a joke. I mean, it’s a joke to, you know, but they just want to show how powerful the US is. Can’t even keep an aircraft carrier group in the Persian Gulf. They’re all back in the United States being repaired and they have the USS Nimitz on the on the east side of Japan, because they’re afraid it might get bombed by China. I’m shocked that, you know, that they that they do this. But it’s simply for propaganda purposes to show that the US is still the King Kong on the global on the global scene. But it’s a dream It’s lunacy. 

Press TV: Mr. Brown, very quickly and briefly, if you may, we have just a little bit of time left in the program talking about the tensions between the United States and Beijing. Well, when we take into account the South China Sea, specifically the issue of Taiwan, how sensitive do you see those tensions right now and how far can they be pushed at this point in time? 

Jeff: Well, first off, remember Sunzi, in the Art of War, The greatest generals are those that never fire a bullet. So the most admired military figures in Chinese history are those who defeated the enemy without ever going on to the battlefield. China is not going to go to war with the United States in the South China Sea or in Taiwan, unless the United States or Taiwan fires first. So they’re going to push China and push China and push China to look tough and bad. China is going to protest and protest and encroach on Taiwan territory with airplanes and ships and do their harassment basically for domestic consumption to show their people that they’re defending their legitimate territorial rights. But the Chinese are not going to go to war unless the Americans or the Taiwanese fire first. I can promise you that. 

Press TV: All right. Thanks a lot. Geopolitical analyst Jeff Brown joining us from Normandy.
