China is building now for the future.
China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) is often considered more capable than acknowledged by the United States. Despite some identified issues such as lack of recent combat experience, corruption, and leadership challenges, China has rapidly built up its military over the past three decades. The PLA’s navy, air force, ground forces, and missile capabilities, including hypersonic weaponry, have seen significant advancements. China’s strategic objectives include defeating U.S. forces, and it has been actively preparing for various forms of warfare, including cyber warfare, electronic warfare, and non-kinetic tactics. While challenges exist beyond a certain distance from the Chinese border, China is expanding its global presence with a network of ports and airfields. It’s essential not to underestimate the PLA’s capabilities, as history has shown the consequences of underestimating adversaries. The possibility of a Taiwan attack, involving comprehensive military strategies, should not be dismissed, and it is crucial to be prepared for potential scenarios.
