US Republican Senator Mark Rubio, introduces a bill on deterring Chinese strikes in the Pacific

US Republican Senator Mark Rubio, introduces a bill on deterring Chinese strikes in the Pacific  Republican Senator Mark Rubio introduced a bill on deterring potential Chinese strikes on US bases in the Pacific. In the bill, Rubio cited growing tensions between Taiwan and China over "increasingly aggressive Chinese military exercises" near the island.  The senator predicted that China would likely try to strike US bases in the Pacific, before possibly invading Taiwan.  "Hope is not a strategy, and we have to protect our military positions around the world. Enhancing our capabilities in the Indo-Pacific region is a rational way to protect our interests and advance hostilities directed against the United States or our allies," Rubio said.  The law will oblige the US Department of Defense to strengthen military capabilities in the Indo-Pacific region "to deter China's pre-emptive strike on US forces in the region before invading Taiwan."
