It would take a ‘direct military threat’ for the US to attack China

A “direct military threat” from China would be the catalyst to getting the United States to intervene, according to former US naval intelligence officer John Jordan.

“Any sort of direct military threat to Australia would be, to use the Latin, casus belli, it would also be any sort of infringement and I don’t mean just a flyby or a ship cutting through the international to the territorial waters,” he told Sky News.

“Some sort of attack to Taiwan would also do it, or Japan, or South Korea, or any attempt by China to interfere with sea lanes as they go near Chinese territory.”
