The Chinese general whom Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Mark Milley reportedly promised to warn about U.S. military action is among the regime's biggest warmongers.

Li Zuocheng, a People’s Liberation Army chief and one of President Xi Jinping’s highest-ranking military officers, reportedly took several phone calls from Milley in the closing days of the Trump administration. America's top military commander cited his five-year relationship with Li as reason to warn him of an American attack, according to journalist Bob Woodward. The Chinese general has a history of making public calls for military aggression, threatening to "resolutely smash" Taiwanese forces or any other country that challenges the CCP's regional control.

"If the possibility for peaceful reunification is lost, the people’s armed forces will, with the whole nation, including the people of Taiwan, take all necessary steps to resolutely smash any separatist plots or actions," Li said in a 2020 speech at Beijing’s Great Hall of the People. "We do not promise to abandon the use of force and reserve the option to take all necessary measures to stabilize and control the situation in the Taiwan Strait."
