China Is Selling Off Treasuries & Preparing For A Blockade Of Taiwan & War With The United States

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This article was originally published by Micahel Snyder at The End of the American Dream under the title: China Is Selling Off Treasuries As It Prepares For A Blockade Of Taiwan And A War With The United States

We are closer to a war with China than most people realize.  Right now, U.S. officials in Washington are deeply concerned that the Chinese may impose a full-blown blockade on Taiwan as the first step in a “reunification” campaign.

Many Americans don’t realize that such a move would be a really, really big deal.  If China chooses to blockade Taiwan, the U.S., and China would instantly be in a state of war.  All of a sudden, the flow of high-end computer chips from Taiwan would completely stop.  And all of a sudden, the flow of products that we import from China would completely stop.  In other words, our standard of living would be radically altered for the foreseeable future.

But there are certain things that are likely to happen before China pulls the trigger on a military solution.  In recent months, China has been making moves to reduce economic exposure to the United States, and one of those moves has been to sell off U.S. Treasuries.

In fact, January was the sixth month in a row in which Chinese holdings of U.S. Treasuries fell…

The good news is that the Chinese have been selling off their holdings at a measured pace.

If a blockade or an invasion was imminent, I would expect the Chinese to start selling off Treasuries much more rapidly.

We will keep watching to see if the pace changes.

Meanwhile, CBS News is reporting that China just completed “three days of military drills meant to simulate a blockade of Taiwan”…

Many analysts believe that they are literally showing us what they intend to do.

During these drills, the Chinese practiced attacking Taiwan from the east for the very first time…

If the Chinese fully encircle the island, Taiwan would be totally cut off from U.S. help.

The U.S. could try to break the blockade, but that would mean shooting at the Chinese.

Of course the Chinese would not just use ships to impose a blockade.  On Monday, the Chinese sent more fighter jets toward Taiwan than they ever have before

The Chinese are making it very clear that they aren’t messing around.

In fact, the Chinese military just released an animated video that simulates what an all-out attack on Taiwan would look like

The moment such an attack is launched, the war between the United States and China will have begun.

But most Americans still aren’t taking this seriously.

Most Americans still believe that everything will work out just fine somehow even though Taiwanese Foreign Minister Joseph Wu just warned that we are dangerously close to “an uncontrollable war”

Sadly, he is quite right.

We are so close to the edge, but both sides just continue to raise tensions even more.

On Monday, the U.S. military sailed a guided-missile destroyer right through a very sensitive area of the South China Sea, and the Chinese were not happy about that at all

And U.S. politicians just continue to beat the war drums.

In response to a question about a potential Chinese blockade of Taiwan, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham suggested that the U.S. might just blockade China in return

Unlike the conflict in Ukraine, there is no obvious peaceful solution to this crisis.

Chinese leaders are absolutely obsessed with Taiwan, and they have made “reunification” a very high priority.

But the U.S. simply cannot allow the Chinese to take military action against Taiwan.  More than 60 percent of the high-end computer chips that the world depends upon come from Taiwan, and once the Chinese have gobbled up Taiwan they are not likely to stop there.

At this point, China is looking to establish military bases literally all over the globe

A showdown with China is coming.

In fact, a four-star U.S. Air Force general recently stated that he believes that the U.S. and China will be fighting in 2025.

Needless to say, 2025 is just two years away.

The Chinese military has been preparing for such a war for a long time, and meanwhile, the U.S. military has been focusing on other things.

My hope is that a conflict between our two nations can be avoided for as long as possible, but without a doubt, the clock is ticking.
