The People’s Republic of China would not stop after capturing Taiwan and might be emboldened to seize disputed territories from neighboring countries, Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) warned on Tuesday.
“If China is able to capture Taiwan, there’s no reason to believe that the Chinese Communist Party would stop there. China also has territorial claims against the Philippines, Japan, Vietnam and India,” Cornyn said on the Senate floor.
“We shouldn’t view Taiwan as the CCP’s ultimate goal but as the first domino in a quest to reach regional and global dominance,” he added. “If Taiwan falls, it will not be the end, but rather a beginning.”
