Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said during a congressional hearing on Wednesday that China has no military capability or political intent to attack Taiwan in the next year or two. According to the network, Gen. Milley said that competition with China must be maintained as competition and should not be escalated into a conflict.
