As head of Air Mobility Command, which oversees the Air Force's fleet of transport planes and tanker planes, Minihan warned his personnel to be alert to China and quickly prepare for a potential conflict.

Mr. Minihan said, 'My gut feeling is that we will fight in 2025. The Xi Jinping administration has entered its third term and has advanced military reforms. Presidential elections in Taiwan and presidential elections in the United States will be held in 2024. , It's also why the two countries are distracted. Xi Jinping's army, the reasons for the conflict, the opportunities will all be aligned in 2025,' he wrote in the memo.
