The US Pacific Fleet Commander said that he would be ready to unleash a nuclear strike on China, if he was ordered by President Donald Trump, and noted that the military will never change their loyalty to their commander in chief.
Admiral Scott Swift spoke at a security conference at the Australian National University after joint US-Australian military exercises on the coast of Australia.
Answering a hypothetical question from the audience – would he attack China next week with a nuclear weapon, if Trump gives such an order? Swift said: “The answer is “yes.”
“This is the core of American democracy, and if military forces lose loyalty and devotion to civilian control, we really have a serious problem,” the admiral said, commenting on the oath of the US armed forces on unquestioning obedience to the president as Commander in Chief of the US Armed Forces.
Earlier, the PRC accused the US of carrying out regular flights of reconnaissance aircraft off the coast of China.
We believe him – after all the US is the only country in the world to have used nuclear weapons against another. All the while, claiming moral superiority.
