War with China in two years, top US general warns | World
China accused a senior US general of “recklessness” after he said the superpowers would be at war for two years.
In a scathing warning of the potential for conflict over President Xi’s determination to seize Taiwan, General Mike Minihan, who oversees the US Air Force’s fleet of transport and refueling aircraft, said: “I hope I’m wrong. My intuition tells me [we] will fight in 2025.”
In a memo obtained by NBC News, Minihan told the operational commanders to prepare for combat. “Xi won his third term and appointed his military council in October 2022,” he said. “Taiwan’s presidential election will be held in 2024 and will give Xi a reason. The US presidential election will be held in 2024 and Xi will distract America. si team,
