Tensions in Asia: A war against China could break out in 2025, an American general warns

He urges his troops to train in combat this year, including going to the stands to shoot at targets and telling them to “aim for the heads.”

An American general warned against it high risk of war with China in 2025, most likely around Taiwan. The race for the White House planned for the same year will offer Beijing a “distracted America,” he judges in an internal memo, the authenticity of which was confirmed by the Pentagon this Friday.

“We will fight in 2025”

“I hope I’m wrong. My gut tells me we will fight in 2025,” wrote Air Force Gen. Michael Minihan. President Xi Jinping “has both a team and a motive and an opportunity for 2025,” the military said, assuring that Taiwan’s 2024 election would give the Chinese leader a “reason” for action. He calls on his troops to train in combat this year by, among other things, going to stands to shoot at targets and inviting “Aim for the heads”.
