/BUDAPEST (Worthy News) – Thousands of American troops arrive in as Western tensions rise with over its growing activities in the region, military sources said.

Some 2,200 U.S. Marines, who may use surface-to-air missiles, High Mobility Artillery Rockets, and unmanned aircraft, are in Darwin, capital of Australia’s Northern Territories.

Their “rotation” wraps up in October, said the Australia Defence Department, though more American troops are expected.

Marines will train with the Australian troops and other “friendly forces” to respond to a crisis in the region, the Marines said in their statement. The deployment comes amid Western concerns about China’s perceived stepped-up military provocations towards Taiwan.

“As the world focuses on the in , the next to watch is Taiwan,” said a U.S. official when talking to Worthy .

The diplomat, who asked not to be named to discuss sensitive issues, suggested that a Chinese attack against Taiwan had become more likely.

China regards Taiwan as a renegade province to be brought back under its sovereignty by force, if necessary.
