Top House Republican predicts 'people will die' in imminent armed conflict with China

The top Republican on the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee on Asia, the Pacific, and Nonproliferation has a stark warning about the future of U.S.-Chinese relations.

"I would predict there will be a clash within the next three to six months," Yoho told the Washington Examiner.

He also said this.

"The United States is willing to stand up to them, and that may force China's hand," Yoho told the Examiner. "That'll be something that they will lose, and they will regret, but we can't be intimidated because that might happen. I think the real threat is, if we don't do anything, we know that it'll happen. And then, that'll give more strength to China to keep doing what they're doing. So, you know, let's just hope that diplomacy works and China backs off."

Not unexpected. The Chinese have been open with their goals of world domination. The time for the smack down is now if that is what they really want.

Why wait to face them until they can win since they have stated they are going to go forward with their plan anyway? Stand up to them and they will back down. They are not suicidal.

An armed conflict with China seems like a bad idea. They have nukes, the world's largest standing army, and now a sizable navy, the world's largest population which the government has near complete control over, they control a large majority of america and the western world's manufacturing and industry, they hold huge amounts of american debt, they have a massive business presence in north america and have slowly been taking hold of places around the world through massive real estate investments.

They have a complete disregard for human life in general and regard non-Han Chinese as barely even human. They genuinely believe they will rule the world no matter how long it takes, believe they can survive nuclear war, and generally have no qualms about mass slaughter and genocide.

China's #ing horrifying and I don't think people really understand just how #ed they are and how every single thing they do is to forward their goal of global domination at whatever cost it takes to humanity and the world.

If you’re sinking in the polls, start a war!

What an odd remark by Yoho.

Specifically-

So, you know, let's just hope that diplomacy works and China backs off.


Last I checked, we're approaching their sphere of influence and saying they're an aggressor towards us. I'll accept they're an aggressor to our allies over their, and I'd even go so far to say they're the most oppressive government on earth.

But say that. Don't blow smoke up my ass Yoho by acting like they're encroaching on us, and if they are, say how.

I'm no apologist for China. But let's be real. A war with them will do far more damage than what's being done now.

If we enter open war with China, whose side does the FED take?
Do we suddenly own all of the Chinese owned assets sitting in the US?

Chinese government isn't afraid to kill people, they do it every day.

They are claiming neutral territory.
They are indeed the aggressor.

As I said, I won't deny they're an aggressor towards our allies.

But that's not towards us. If China was in South America, and we started buzzing their assets their, no one would say we're the aggressors, because that's our sphere of influence.

But we're not being encroached by China, our interests are... And that's a distinction I'd like made by my employees under the context of armed conflict with a quasi super power.

Some call it splitting hairs, others semantics... But I know they speak with a clear purpose and intent. And that is go normalize war, this one specifically with implied ravishing concequences.

I don't feel attacked because parts of Asia has a problem with China. I don't care enough to go fight that war, so I wouldn't support it and send some sensitive zoomer over there to spill blood for me. We also don't have the money.

I certainly won't support such an ambition when my country can't get off Chinese goods like a junkie who can't skip a day. Those same interests paid every campaign for those in office. The conflict of interest is glaring, and I assure you there is no altruism.

China is on the warpath against every single one of their neighbours right now.

They’ve claimed Vladivostok as their own (yes, the Russian city), pretty much all of Bhutan, large swathes of Nepal, various Japanese Islands, some Vietnamese Islands and of course are doubling down on their claims against Taiwan and India.

I believe the Chinese Communist Party’s position of power is extremely precarious. They feel their is a very real danger of being overthrown, unrest is probably at highs not seen since Tiananmen Square. Perhaps more so. China has faced crisis after crisis this year which the government has responded to with it’s unique blend of total incompetence and finger pointing.

My thinking is their suicidal warmongering is part of an ever escalating campaign to try and distract the nationalistic Chinese people from problems at home. And it isn’t working.

It is my belief that relatively soon their will be war in the Asia-Pacific area, either a localised regional one or one that pulls in the US, or the Chinese Communist Party will fall. Hopefully the latter.

If neither happens i will be pleasantly surprised.

Go to war with China? Why should we?

I thought it was well established (by the MSM and many politicians) that Americans feel that maintaining our rights and freedoms aren't worth losing lives.

What difference does it make if we surrender our freedom to the American government or the Chinese government? Both want to take away our free speech, right to bear arms, freedom of religion, right to peaceably assemble, etc. Both will spy on us.

Besides, I don't think we're prepared to fight a "social distance" war. How far away do we have to stay away from the enemy? Six feet or six meters? Will you have to leave the battlefield if you're not wearing a mask? Can you get closer if you're in a tank? Would it be racist to call the Chinese the enemy?

Most importantly, what if China promises to execute Trump? They would probably do better than Biden in the CNN polls. Heck, Kathy Griffin could get her job back.

The difference is the US has an alliance with the Republic of China dating back to the Second World War.

The Chinese Communist Party has no such arrangements with any South American state.

something that never made any sense to me with china is, even though we've have relation with them in trade, and once were a ally of the non communist china until 1949. not gonna go through all the history.

why the hell do we still do business with them? how many time in the last 25 years alone, has some general, spokesman, or some other chinese (CCP) official said they would attack, nuke, the U.S. if we interfered in any thing they did that jeopardized our interests.

my line of thinking is you don't do business with someone that threatens you and the stability of your country or the world. you cut them off.

not gonna get into all the knock off stuff they produce for commercial or military use they have. only to say if big business and yes our dumb ass elected officials would have been on the stick and not chasing a dollar. we wouldn't be having to think about them doing the sh@@ their doing now.

C'mon bro. These are simple searches. Most normal people became aware of how deeply entrenched they are in most our institutions (and massively compromised democrat party) at the start of the pandemic.

Edit: Actually, when I became aware and started studying the subject I initially thought the government was caught off guard. But no, a certain party (and R party, but not nearly as much) was paid off to allow it to happen over the last 35 years at least. And I'm also convinced that covid was a trap for two reasons: 1.) To bring bad actors to public light, such as forced lockdowns and # statistics clearly slanted for an agenda .... 2.) To rally global support for a backed act of aggression against the CCP.

Without the virus we'd be screwed in less than 20 years from a successful coup by the CCP (edit: and others).

Did a search. Congressman Yoho is being too "authoritarian" against China. He told China to give Hong Kong freedom, or face US Consequences. He told China they will pay a big price if they interfere in Taiwan.

We are not the boss of China.

I made a thread in 18' that China, not Russia was the threat.

But that doesn't mean that we wait to react to it. The problem is we are a reactionary nation. The whole country addicted to emotion and surprise to things that should have been in front of our face would it not have been for so many shallow distractions.

But the world is far more nuanced than binary defending of China or advocating for war with them. No, I refuse.

Who fueled their growth? We did. Who still pumps dollars into their economy? We do. Let's start there.

A war with China kills as many as it "saves". As for the immediate threat to the region, I suggest India and Russia handle it. I'm tired of trillions going to failed foreign policy. We can't even beat Middle Eastern rebels that we f***ing trained. American exceptionalism as it stands is the exceptional skill to use borrowed money for wars with no conclusion or concise directive. Let's start there while we're at it.

This by the way isn't directed at you, and I hope this doesn't feel like it's aimed at you. I'm just kind of ranting. 2020 is a dumpster fire, and I know we have more surprises in store, but for God's sake, let's at least make sure the things that are our choice don't include record amounts of human and economic sacrifice, we've already gone over budget on that, because it's something we're always #1 in.

I agree with you. But the public needs to be aware of why and how we began fueling their growth. One being raising corporate taxes here so labor would be cheaper over there, etc. Seems to me, at least, it was a setup either intentional or unintentional for specific peoples greed. I'm just keeping it not crazy right now (like crazy conspiracy) because it seems like we're currently being attacked from multiple parties, not just china.

I don't think it's conspiratorial at all to say there was f***ery involved with the outsourcing.

And the greed wasn't just on the part of politicians, corporations, and elitists. The American consumer was in on the greed.

But nothing in life is free, and those "cheap" goods only cost less on the front end. We'll pay for it all with unemployment, dilapidated cities... But hopefully not war.

Where is the full transcript?

"I would predict...."

Is rather different to "I do predict....."

The former requires an "if", the latter is more certain.


Come on people, this media driven fear is tabloidisation at its finest.
