A US general urged the military to be “ready” for war, saying he believes the risk of the US going to war with China is ” high” over Taiwan .
“I hope I’m wrong. My instincts tell me we will fight in 2025 , ” says General Mike Minihan from the US Air Force .
Thinking that Chinese President Xi Jinping will have “operation, motivation and opportunity” in 2025, Minihan argued that the 2024 elections in Taiwan will give “a reason” to mobilize China .
Minihan said the 2024 US elections will present a “distracted” US to China .
Minihan urged his soldiers to undergo combat training, including marksmanship.
