US Troops Train For War With China Over Taiwan

TRUTH PUKE’S TAKE: The US Army’s Special Operations Command held its annual capabilities exercise in which it played out a scenario of the US defending Taiwan against a Chinese invasion, marking the first-ever use of a Taiwan scenario for the exercise.

The troops practiced insertion into Taiwan to defend against a Chinese invasion, using some of the hallmark tactics and weapons that were used during the Global War on Terror, as well as new ones, and utilized a concrete mock-up on the base to simulate the country’s environment. The soldiers participating in the exercise described their work as perfecting the fundamentals of warfare and reinforcing basic tactics.

It is an unusually direct move given the military’s hesitancy to overtly suggest conflict.

As tensions rise between the U.S. and China, particularly with incidents such as Chinese spy balloons breaching U.S. airspace and Chinese drones flying around Taiwan, U.S. defense planners are now prioritizing strategies to deter China’s influence in the Indo-Pacific region and globally.
