Pentagon Confirms The Comment By Commander
The remarks made by the head of the Air Mobility Command were confirmed by the Pentagon. He mentioned that the future war will be over Taiwan as the election time approaches in Taiwan. China will likely intervene in next year’s Taiwan presidential elections. The main goal will be to deter and to defeat China, Minihan said.
China Is Preparing For The Conflict
On the other hand, China has been continuously preparing for the invasion of the self-ruled island. China has been conducting military exercises in the Taiwanese strait, provoking the island in every possible way. Minihan also mentioned that for China, “reason, and opportunity are all aligned”.
