China in 15 years will equal its military potential with the American one, according to the US armed forces.
China is rapidly increasing its military power and by the middle of the century will be able to win over the United States in the event of an armed conflict. This was stated by the joint chiefs of staff (JCS) of the US armed forces mark Milli at a Wall Street Journal event on Wednesday, December 9.
According to Milli, by 2035, China's military potential will be equal to the American one.
вЂњThey are on a path to try to achieve this. Of course, this is a serious challenge to the security of the United States now and in the coming years, вЂњ the military said, adding that to protect against China's ambitions, the United States must develop its own economic and military power.
Milli warned:вЂќ we don't want competition between the great powers to escalate into a war between them. That would be a disaster.вЂќ
Finally, the US military stressed that the US army must be prepared for offensive and defensive actions in space and cyberspace, especially against China and Russia, which are actively developing military capabilities in these areas.
Earlier, the United States shot down a ballistic missile from a ship for the first time. A US Navy destroyer has shot down an Intercontinental ballistic missile target for the first time in an important test.
