US Warns China Against Taiwan Attack

National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien warned China against retaking Taiwan by force at an event in Las Vegas on Wednesday. O’Brien explained that amphibious assaults are difficult, and said there is a lot of ambiguity around what the US response would be to a Chinese invasion of Taiwan.

O’Brien told the event that China was undergoing a massive naval buildup. “Part of that is to give them the ability to push us back out of the Western Pacific, and allow them to engage in an amphibious landing in Taiwan,” he said. “The problem with that is that amphibious landings are notoriously difficult.” O’Brien pointed out the 100-mile distance between mainland China and Taiwan.

“It’s not an easy task, and there’s also a lot of ambiguity about what the United States would do in response to an attack by China on Taiwan,” he said. There are questions about what the US would actually do in the event of an invasion of Taiwan.
