US Air Force LOST Simulated Conflict with China, Would Likely Lose Real Conflict If the Chinese Attacked Taiwan
A war game simulated last fall demonstrated that the US Air Force would likely lose if China attacked Taiwan.
The war game had been highly classified and set at some point in the 2030s. According to Yahoo! News it began with a Chinese biological weapon attack, continued with missile strikes on US bases and warships, and culminated in an assault on Taiwan.
Air Force Lt. Gen. S. Clinton Hinote told Yahoo! News that “more than a decade ago, our war games indicated that the Chinese were doing a good job of investing in military capabilities that would make our preferred model of expeditionary warfare, where we push forces forward and operate out of relatively safe bases and sanctuaries, increasingly difficult.”
“At that point the trend in our war games was not just that we were losing, but we were losing faster,” Hinote added. “After the 2018 war game I distinctly remember one of our gurus of war gaming standing in front of the Air Force secretary and chief of staff, and telling them that we should never play this war game scenario [of a Chinese attack on Taiwan] again, because we know what is going to happen. The definitive answer if the U.S. military doesn’t change course is that we’re going to lose fast. In that case, an American president would likely be presented with almost a fait accompli.”
The US military needs to get it together. China could kick our butts if we tried to defend Taiwan, and military leaders under the Biden administration are evidently more worried about making sure pregnant women can have combat roles and the opinions of a cable news show host. This is what American decline looks like, folks.
