LBC radio host Maajid Nawaz has warned that the next major world conflict will be sparked by China, and its massive military quietly began training for it a few years ago
An expert has warned that China will spark “the next major global conflict” as fears about World War 3 and tensions between China and Taiwan mount.
LBC radio host Maajid Nawaz addressed the surge in military action ahead of the Chinese coastal show when he pondered the news that Chinese armed forces were doing exercises over the days just days before Chinese President Xi Jinping’s declaration of “reunifying” the countries Taiwanese airspace.
The expert who founded the anti-extremism think tank Quilliam claimed that the impending annexation of Taiwan will lead to a conflict that could spark another major world conflict.
He added that the potential demise of democracy in Taiwan was “a practical, moral concern.”
Mr. Nawaz said, “You are talking about a corporatist one-party state that uses technology to turn people into a commodity for macro-profits.
“The concern about Taiwan is that we are losing another democracy and, as was the case with Hong Kong, China is turning Taiwan into tyranny.
“Let’s say China invades Taiwan by 2025, I think we have to hope for the best and prepare for the worst.
“What prepares us for the worst is that this country must be ready to stand on its own two feet if the global order is shaken in the form of war.”
Tensions between China and Taiwan mount after the threat of high-tech war as the Chinese vowed to forcibly unite the countries.
Fears that China might start World War III have increased since China sent bombers into Taiwanese airspace in what has been dubbed the “Invasion War Game”.
According to the Taiwanese Defense Ministry, the Chinese military attack involved ten J-16 and four Su-30 fighter jets, one anti-submarine aircraft and four H-6 bombers capable of carrying nuclear weapons.
The Taiwanese Air Force reportedly responded with fighter jets, issued radio alerts and deployed anti-aircraft missile systems to monitor activity.
The Chinese plane was flying in an area closer to the Chinese coast, about northeast of Pratas Island, according to a map from the ministry.
China wants to bring Taiwan back under state control on the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Chinese Communist Party.
