On Thursday, US Pacific Fleet commander in chief, Adm. Scott Swift has given a chilling statement in which he said that he would launch a nuclear strike against China next week if President Donald Trump ordered it.
He was attending a major joint US- Australian military exercise off the Australian coast at the Australian National University security conference in Canberra.
According to The Indian Express, An academic in the audience has asked him a question, “whether he would make a nuclear attack on China next week if Trump ordered it.” He replied: “The answer would be: Yes.”
Interestingly, the joint US-Australian exercise was monitored by a Chinese People’s Liberation Army-Navy Type 815 Dongdiao-class auxiliary general intelligence vessel.
Swift said: “Every member of the US military has sworn an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic and to obey the officers and the president of the United States as commander and chief appointed over us.”
He further added: “This is core to the American democracy and anytime you have a military that is moving away from a focus and an allegiance to civilian control, then we really have a significant problem.”
On July 5, Donald Trump also tweeted, “Trade between China and North Korea grew almost 40% in the first quarter. So much for China working with us – but we had to give it a try!”
A Sino-American partnership has been described as the world’s most important bilateral relationship of the century. During the Vietnam war and the Korean war, both the countries had been in open conflict.
Also, the US and China remain in dispute over territorial issues in the South China Sea.
