Things could get bad.
Florida Rep. Ted Yoho, who is the top Republican on the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee for Asia, is now warning that there could be a violent clash between the United States and China within a few months.
According to the Washington Examiner, “I would predict there will be a clash within the next three to six months,” Rep. Yoho said.
“Knowing China, I think what they would do is ram one of our ships and say it was a mistake,” Yoho stated.
“The United States is willing to stand up to them, and that may force China’s hand,” he later added. “That’ll be something that they will lose, and they will regret, but we can’t be intimidated because that might happen. I think the real threat is, if we don’t do anything, we know that it’ll happen. And then, that’ll give more strength to China to keep doing what they’re doing. So, you know, let’s just hope that diplomacy works and China backs off.”
