U.S. openly preparing to sink Chinese warships

The main target of the United States in the event of a conflict over Taiwan will be the ships of the Chinese Navy

The main object of attack by the US military in the event of a conflict over Taiwan will be Chinese warships, said Kenneth Wilsbach, commander of the US Air Force in the Pacific, at a symposium in Aurora, the Military portal reported.

Wilsbach suggested recalling how the Chinese Navy behaved during the visit of the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the US Congress Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan. Chinese Navy warships were sent east of the island. “It was like a blockade,” Wilsbach explained.

Anti-aircraft missiles on these ships allow the Chinese military to establish a no-fly zone around the island. Therefore, if all measures to prevent a Chinese invasion of the island do not work and it does take place, the first business will need to sink these ships, Wilsbach said. This will be the first task not only of the Air Force in the Pacific, but of any forces that will be involved in the conflict.

Wilsbach reported that his units have recently been practicing a strategy of dispersing vehicles and crews over a large number of islands.

Recall that the visit to the island on August 2 of the then Speaker of the House of Representatives of the US Congress and member of the Democratic Party Nancy Pelosi became scandalous. Large-scale exercises of the Chinese military were held around Taiwan on August 4-7. They were carried out as a reaction to the arrival on Pelosi Island. It was reported about 11 ballistic missiles launched by China and flying over the island at high altitude.

Since then, the Chinese military has increased activity around Taiwan. Since a certain point, the Taiwanese military and media have been reporting every day about PRC warplanes and warships approaching the island, although not invading the air and sea space proclaimed by Taiwan.
