A United States Air Force general has predicted that the United States will be at war with China by 2025.
It’s confusing to even consider.
America’s armed forces are struggling to meet recruiting quotas, US military leaders are wasting time pushing wake-up nonsense on our soldiers, and Biden is giving our resources to Ukraine, not to mention the equipment he left behind in Afghanistan.

Air Force general predicts war with China in 2025, tells officials to prepare by firing ‘clip’ at target and ‘aiming for head’
A four-star Air Force general sent a memo to officials on Friday that predicts the US will be at war with China within two years and tells them to prepare by firing a “clip” at a target and “aim for the head.”
In a memo sent Friday and obtained by NBC News, Gen. Mike Minihan, head of the Air Mobility Command, said, “I think I’m wrong. My gut tells me to fight in 2025.
Air Mobility Command has about 50,000 service members and about 500 aircraft and is responsible for transportation and refueling.
With both Taiwan and the US having presidential elections in 2024, the US will be “distracted” and Chinese President Xi Jinping will have an opportunity to move to Taiwan, Minihan said in the memo.
He sets his goals for preparation as including building “an entrenched, ready, integrated and agile Joint Force Maneuver Team ready to fight and win within the first island chain.”
The signed memo was addressed to all air wing commanders at Air Mobility Command and other Air Force operational commanders and orders them to report to Minihan by February 28 all major efforts to prepare China for combat.
Of course, a defense official tried to play down the comments.
A US defense official, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue, said General Michael A. Minihan said his comments “do not represent the department’s view on China.” https://t.co/zxBP5Lw8gz

Tom Cotton commented on this.
The US military must be ready and able to respond at any time to a growing Chinese aggression.
Gen. Mike Minihan has the right mindset—our bureaucracy needs to catch up.https://t.co/huqenmERbr

Our army does not seem ready for this kind of conflict.
