U.S Army Secretary: China Will Attack U.S. Homeland if War Escalates

Christine Wormuth, the Secretary of the U.S. Army, predicted that Communist-led China would likely launch an attack on U.S homeland in the event of a “major war.”

Wormuth said China would use such an attack to undermine the resolve of the American people.

On Monday, Wormuth said, “If we got into a major war with China, the United States homeland would be at risk as well with both kinetic and non-kinetic attacks — whether it’s cyberattacks on the power grid or on pipelines.”

“They are going to go after the will of the United States public. They’re going to try to erode support for a conflict,” Wormuth added.

Both kinetic and non-kinetic attacks can be used in various instances, including military conflicts, terrorist attacks, or geopolitical upheaval.

The choice between kinetic or non-kinetic attacks usually depends on the attacker’s and defender’s goals, capabilities, and vulnerabilities.

“Our goal is to avoid a land war in Asia. But we have to prepare, we have to be ready to fight and win this war.” She continued, “the best way to avoid such a war is to show China and the countries of the region that we can really win this war.”

Kinetic attacks, aimed at causing physical damage or death to people or property, usually involve using force or weapons, such as bombs, missiles, or firearms.

Non-kinetic attacks, however, do not involve physical force or weapons. Instead, it relies on psychological, economic, or political means to achieve its objectives.

Non-kinetic attacks usually include propaganda campaigns, cyberattacks, economic sanctions, and political interference.

In recent years, China has expanded its military capabilities, which are robust to carry out attacks on Taiwan’s military and civilian infrastructure, potentially extending to U.S. military assets in the region.

China has also been working to modernize its nuclear forces, a significant threat to the U.S.

While Taiwan considers itself a sovereign state, China claims Taiwan as its territory.

The U.S. has a longstanding relationship with Taiwan and has pledged to defend the island against Chinese aggression.

Concern over China’s growing military strength and territorial ambitions has been increasing.

Relations between China and the U.S. are deteriorating rapidly due to the surveillance balloons used for spying in North America.

Chinese officials may be daunted by the extreme difficulty of launching an invasion across the Taiwan Strait.

“The complexity of a joint island landing campaign is not a small matter,” he said. “And you have to be [an] incredibly professional — well-trained, well-led — force. And they’re working on it, but … they’re not 10 feet tall. They have work to do. And I think that now is the time for us to get into position to be able to deter that event from happening.”
