China-Russia military alliance would have incredible impact on US

The Honorable Newt Gingrich
 

By Newt Gingrich (Original source Fox News)

“China has dramatically modernized and grown its economy, military, and influence around the world in a relatively short time. In its own right, it has ascended from being a mostly backward country under the rule of Mao Zedong to being a genuine world power today.

Because of these advances, China by itself represents a serious challenge to the United States in many ways, which I discuss in my new book, “Trump vs. China: Facing America’s Greatest Threat.”

However, if it were to partner or cooperate with another country, such as Russia, China and its comrade could seriously threaten U.S. – and indeed global – security. This is the topic of this week’s episode of “Newt’s World.”

Here is an example of what I’m talking about: Imagine that China decided to invade Taiwan tomorrow.

This would put the U.S. in an incredibly difficult position. China insists that Taiwan is part of China – a position which the U.S. formally acknowledges. However, though the U.S. recognizes China’s position, we still maintain strong, unofficial relations with Taiwan. Under the 1979 Taiwan Relations Act, the U.S. has a commitment to provide assistance for the island’s defense capabilities.”
