Senior US general warns of possible looming war with China

A FOUR-STAR US Air Force general has warned of a conflict with China as early as 2025 – most likely over Taiwan – and urged his commanders to push their units to achieve maximum operational battle readiness this year.

In an internal memorandum that first emerged on social media yesterday, and was later confirmed as genuine by the Pentagon, the head of the Air Mobility Command, Gen Mike Minihan, said the main goal should be to deter “and, if required, defeat” China.
