- Reaction score
At the risk of repeating myself, again, everyone who went to almost any staff college understands that the two most difficult joint operations are:Agreed, but I think Xi has also taken a good read of the Ukraine, and while I am sure he’d like to take Taiwan, he’s knows it’s a little beyond his capabilities at this point in time.
1. An amphibious assault on a defended coast or island; and
2. An airborne assault on a defended place.
Taking Taiwan requires the PLA to do both ... well.
Maybe they are a lot better than they were 25 years ago, but, back then, a fairly senior officer told me that the PLA had zero experience and very little training in either operation.
