Dire Warning Issued as US-China Conflict Could Be ‘On the Brink’ of War

After American billionaire Ray Dalio returned from his China trip with grim warnings, policy experts are chiming in on “the scale of the threat” the Communist Chinese Party poses to national security. China believes it can do whatever they want in Taiwan and has made it clear they are not afraid of the US. Through his LinkedIn profile, Dalio wrote and published an article focusing on the “great power conflict” and what’s really going on with China. He claimed the piece is informed by two recent visits to Beijing where he spent a total of 13 days. Dalio wrote, “The United States and China are on the brink of war and are beyond the ability to talk. I want to emphasize that by saying that they are on the brink, I don’t mean to say that they will necessarily go over the brink. I mean to say that they are very close to crossing red lines that, if crossed, will irrevocably push them over the brink into some type of war that damages these two countries and causes damage to the world order in severe and irrevocable ways—like Russia’s invasion of Ukraine did for Russia and the world, just much bigger.” Dalio is not alone in his thinking and beliefs, as other experts have agreed with Dalio’s warning of looming conflict, including Atlas Organization founder Gordon Chang who argued war could “very well” break out before 2025. China has not been shy about engaging the US military in their region. 

The US needs to take this possibility seriously, whether war comes or not. China’s military and technology are among the most advanced in the world. The US is not prepared to take on a force like China, and should take measures to be ready, should they ever need to be. The US has also been at China to stop supplying Russia with aid to fight against Ukraine. Needless to say, with all of the tension with China right now, the US should tread carefully.
