"The U.S. military “failed miserably” in an October wargame scenario
reportedly involving a battle for Taiwan, and now military leaders are
looking at how to change the U.S. joint warfighting strategy, a top U.S.
general revealed for the first time this week."
How many of you think a war over Taiwan could happen within the next five
years? And how many of you predict China will wait ten or even twenty years
to mount an invasion? The U.S. and Taiwan in some ways have been caught
with their pants down, and so from a CCP perspective, there are good
reasons to attack within the relative short-term. But certainly a victory
is more assured if they show long-term patience and continue to improve
the quality and quantity of their war machine. But I suspect the war will
happen much sooner rather than later, because Xi Jinping wants the history
books to credit him with the conquest of Taiwan, and not someone else.
Interestingly, two of their prominent generals stuck their necks out and
wrote to various official CCP newspapers, stating that in their opinions
that China would be taking a huge and unwarranted risk to go to war against
America and her allies anytime in the near future. Senior U.S. Navy
leadership believes there is an excellent chance China will attack by 2026.
The CCP could build lots of hypersonic anti-ship missiles and drone
torpedoes during that five year span of time.
I suspect nuclear blackmail may be the ace card the CCP uses against
Taiwan. The people of the small island nation should have followed Israel's
example, and developed their own nuclear weapons deterrent. A U.S.
president wanting to spare American cities, may decide at the last minute
not to extend our nuclear umbrella over Taiwan, if the CCP nukes a major
city there and then demands unconditional surrender. What a horrific
scenario to consider...
I am fascinated by this struggle between the slowly declining U.S. and the
rising (though quite dysfunctional) China. I recommend everyone read
"Stealth War," written by a retired Air Force general, which shows the
level of subversion achieved by the CCP, not just by espionage and the
stealing of our technology, but by so easily finding so many elites in our
nation willing to cooperate with them, and essentially sell out their own
Supposedly, the head of the CCP spy network in America defected to the
U.S., and for months now he has been getting debriefed. According to
reports, he handed over two terabytes of data about CCP activities, which
included lists of those who had accepted bribes in return for betraying
their country. I dearly hope this story is actually true, but we will see.
This will be a titanic struggle over the coming years of this century, to
see whether China and tyranny, or America and the democracies of the world,
will be the dominant power. I hope that in time China will mellow out, and
learn to live peacefully with the global community. The CCP leadership
visualizes their 2049 anniversary of taking over China, with a scenario
where by then they have both a much stronger economy and military than the
United States, and they have usurped the American role over the world.
