look the question was could the us stop a PLA invasion of taiwan.

well he's not wrong that the us could. just no mention of the costs. for example, in the event of a pla invasion the us could launch all its nukes. that would certainly stop a PLA invasion. of course it'll kill all the people on the island and will invite a retaliatory strike on the us itself, but see the invasion was stopped.

moreover even if he meant conventionally, that's his opinion. he isnt god, just because he says "yes" does not make it so.

By the time Washington can react and mobilize, it'll already be over. What the general says is completely on theoretical terms as in US forces would be deployed and ready before any invasion.

The fact you believe you or any poster on PDF has better insight on this subject than the top General of the US Armed Forces is absolutely laughable. He has access to US war plans against China and receives the highest level of military intelligence on Chinese forces and plans.


Your grasping at straws

"I can assure you that we have the capabilities if there were political decisions made in accordance with the Taiwan Relations Act," said Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, in response to the senator.


Milley told senators on Thursday taking Taiwan by force would be no easy feat for China's People Liberation Army.

"If you're talking about a military invasion in Taiwan, crossing the straits, the Taiwan straits with a sizable military force to seize an island the size of Taiwan against the military that they have, and the population that they have, that's an extraordinarily complex and difficult operation if, against an unopposed force, that's a very hard thing to do," Milley said.

But Hawley pushed the general on whether the US could militarily block an invasion of Taiwan if Taipei could not resist on its own.

"Yes," Milley replied.

yet another pitch by the pentagoons to drain the american tax payers of hundreds of billions that will go to waste by linking the pockets of these pentagoon generals & military industrial complex executives. The fact is and remains that China can literally flood taiwan with thousands (of not millions) of small suicide drones & theie 300km range MRLS that would bring the island down to its knees in forced submission while uncle sam will be helplessly watching while standing in a corner wearing a dunce cap.

When US Admirals said America would lose you wouldn't believe it.

Sounds like you can’t handle reality. He clearly stated the US has the capabilities it needs to defeat a Chinese invasion of Taiwan. Care to test US?

sounds vaguely familiar...sounds like that poor bastard of a u.s. general who said that he can beat the taliban and yet, here you are...

looks like someone already took your dare to "test to you" and then rubbed it in your face. ;)

So when some General said US will beat China you will boast about it, but when an Admiral says the US will lose you think he is some kind of a drug addict living in another world?

it boils down to arrogance getting to the heads...right now, u.s. and european generals still have this ill conceived & misguided mindset that they undefeateable because of their skin color that considers science and technology as their sole property...I guess the beating they have received in afghanistan is not enough to set them straight and put them in their place.

You got it wrong, the US and NATO understands it completely. Zelensky was convinced the US and NATO would back him up in confronting the Russian forces if Ukraine attacks the Donbass. Blinken rushed over there to deliver Biden's message to him that they ain't going to war with Russia. The same is true for Taiwan, US knows it will suffer tremendous loses (losing all those warships and bases in South Korea/Japan). You cannot compare the Afghan War or that in Iraq. A war amongst superpowers is totally different where China's land based missiles combined with the Naval and Airforce will be flying with devastating power into the Sea battlefield.
