US Senator Proposes Legislation to Discourage Chinese Attacks in the Pacific

Republican Senator Mark Rubio introduced a bill to deter potential Chinese strikes on US bases in the Pacific.

In the bill, Rubio mentioned rising tensions between Taiwan and China due to “increasingly aggressive Chinese military exercises” near the island.

The senator predicted that China would likely try to strike US bases in the Pacific before possibly invading Taiwan.

“Hope is not a strategy and we must defend our military positions around the world. Strengthening our capabilities in the Indo-Pacific region is a rational way to protect our interests and advance military action against the United States or our allies,” Rubio. said.

The law will oblige the US Department of Defense to increase military capabilities in the Indo-Pacific region “to deter a Chinese preemptive strike on US forces in the region before invading Taiwan.”
