DEVELOPING: Recent U.S. Special Military Exercises Indicate War With China Soon?

Is this another indication that WWIII is right around the corner?

Recent exercises conducted by the United States Army Special Command (USASOC), indicate that the government is prepping for a hot war with China over the territory of Taiwan.

Lt. Gen. Jonathan P. Braga, who is a commander in the USASOC, provided this statement: “Ultimately, what we are trying to do is prevent World War III. That’s our job.”

This statement lacks all self-reflection, as Taiwan is not an American problem, and deliberately conducting military exercises to defend the small nation is overwhelmingly unpopular with the American people. …

It can only lead to war, and, is an escalation, in and of itself.

Here are more details on the exercises and the continued military pressure on Taiwan:



Military.Com confirmed:

Members of the U.S. Army’s Special Operations Command fired Carl Gustaf recoilless rifles, breached tunnels and operated Switchblade drones that flew with an unsettling whiz over a training area on Thursday.

The exercise combined some of the hallmark tactics and weapons that were used during the Global War on Terror with other tools reflecting a seismic shift for the command as it prepares for potential conflict against major military rivals.

The training was part of the USASOC’s annual capabilities exercise, or CAPEX, and the mission they were gaming out was an insertion into Taiwan to defend against a Chinese invasion.


Newsweek had more:

Meanwhile, Stars and Stripes reported that U.S. and Filipino forces practiced air assaults on three islands—Fuga, Calayan, and Batan—south of Taiwan between April 21 and Monday.

The drills are designed to send a message that the U.S. is ready to help allies defend their sea territory, Maj. Gen. Joseph Ryan told the outlet.

“The Army’s campaign in the Pacific is designed to deter … because we don’t want a war with [China],” he said.
