A general in the United States Air Force has predicted that by 2025, the United States will be in a war with China.
It’s disturbing to even consider this.
America’s armed forces are struggling to meet recruitment quotas, U.S. Military leaders have been wasting time pushing woke nonsense on our soldiers, and Biden is giving away our resources to Ukraine, not to mention the equipment he left behind in Afghanistan.
NBC News reports:
Air Force general predicts war with China in 2025, tells officers to prep by firing ‘a clip’ at a target, and ‘aim for the head’
A four-star Air Force general sent a memo on Friday to the officers he commands that predicts the U.S. will be at war with China in two years and tells them to get ready to prep by firing “a clip” at a target, and “aim for the head.”
In the memo sent Friday and obtained by NBC News, Gen. Mike Minihan, head of Air Mobility Command, said, “I hope I am wrong. My gut tells me will fight in 2025.”
Air Mobility Command has nearly 50,000 service members and nearly 500 planes and is responsible for transport and refueling.
Minihan said in the memo that because both Taiwan and the U.S. will have presidential elections in 2024, the U.S. will be “distracted,” and Chinese President Xi Jinping will have an opportunity to move on Taiwan.
He lays out his goals for preparing, including building “a fortified, ready, integrated, and agile Joint Force Maneuver Team ready to fight and win inside the first island chain.”
The signed memo is addressed to all air wing commanders in Air Mobility Command and other Air Force operational commanders, and orders them to report all major efforts to prepare for the China fight to Minihan by Feb. 28.
Of course, a Defense official tried to downplay the comments.
A U.S. defense official, speaking on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue, said that Gen. Michael A. Minihan’s comments “are not representative of the department’s view on China.”https://t.co/zxBP5Lw8gz

Tom Cotton commented on this.
The U.S. military must be ready and able to respond at anytime to growing Chinese aggression.
Gen. Mike Minihan has the correct mentality—our bureaucracy needs to catch up.https://t.co/huqenmERbr

Our military does not appear to be ready for a conflict like this.
