US Marine Corps general analyzes the impact of the operation in Ukraine on a possible Chinese attack on Taiwan

27

The "slow" advance of Russian troops in Ukraine will force the Chinese military to "take a break" in relation to Taiwan. This was stated by the commander of the US Marine Corps, General David Berger.


As the general noted, any landing operation cannot be easy and fast. There are now obvious logistical and supply issues that need to be addressed ashore. Of course, the possibility of sea and air landing gives certain advantages to the side that launched the operation, but then difficulties arise, Berger emphasizes.

It is the complexity of landing operations, according to Berger, that explains the importance of regular exercises and training of the Marine Corps. The general also noted that the prospect of a quick NATO response to the invasion should also stop the Chinese side. He recalled that the United States has strong allies in the Asia-Pacific region, which are also concerned about the growing Chinese influence.

According to General Berger, the changing nature of modern wars and conflicts requires precision strikes from afar, which will more effectively protect the interests of allies.

In addition, Berger noted that the US Marine Corps is now analyzing why Russia has not yet carried out an amphibious landing in the Odessa area. The general admits that the Russian army can calculate the logistical difficulties, problems with the provision of the landing troops, as well as the strong resistance of the Ukrainian defense.

Some of General Berger's assessments can indeed be heeded. This applies, for example, to a quick and prompt response to changes in the situation, which does not always require waiting for instructions from the higher command. For example, long columns that accumulate on the roads waiting for orders from the center are vulnerable to enemy armed forces.

      On October 28, 1944, the last territories of Ukraine occupied by the Nazis were liberated by Soviet troops. The battle for the liberation of Ukraine, which lasted 680 days and consisted of a series of major operations, in which up to half of the manpower and military equipment of all active Soviet Armed Forces took part, became the most important stage on the way to victory over Nazi Germany and its allies.

      Let him look at the area of ​​​​Ukraine and compare it with Vietnam (where the Yankees so wonderfully screwed up). ~ 603 thousand sq. km and, accordingly, ~ 331 thousand sq. km.

    The general does not consider China having one very serious military and political partner.
    Not vindictive.
    But evil to the bastards.
    And with a good historical memory.

      Before entering Taiwan, China must "lower" Yapov, for example, "Nanjing we will not forget, we will not forgive."
      We wait

    Well, let this general ask Zelya to withdraw from the cities all the civilians that the Nazis are holding - I think that then the RF Armed Forces would have defeated the garrisons of their cities in a matter of hours and the "slippage" would be over.
    These armchair generals in the United States, who have not fought with an equal enemy for a long time, are still talking about something there!
    But if tomorrow Taiwan is captured by the PLA with an amphibious operation and high-precision missile strikes against Taiwan's defense points, what will NATO do then? I do not believe that Formosa will run to arrange a nuclear conflict with Taiwan.
    And then the world will understand that the hegemony of the United States and NATO is everything, because. they are good for nothing and cannot decide at the decisive moment.

    There are also questions for ours: What did the barracks of the Nazis and the Armed Forces of Ukraine take care of in the first hours? It was necessary to hit them with high precision, incapacitating and destroying the soldiers and officers of the enemy in the place of deployment. Today, if you look and sanely resist, no one could, except for the Donbass group.

    It remains to wait for the result of the assault on Mariupol. The future attitude of the Armed Forces and Natsiks to the issue of holding cities, and not to drape to the West, will depend on how quickly, successfully and with the least losses it passes.

    The Yankees argue that the seizure of territory is carpet bombing, and we, like the Chinese, do not want unnecessary casualties and destruction. Therefore, we are fighting for a long time, because we protect the housing stock, and the civilian population!

    Yes Yes. They also said about Ukraine that they would harness themselves. But something of NATO units in Ukraine is not visible.

    The "slow" advance of Russian troops in Ukraine will force the Chinese military to "take a break" in relation to Taiwan.

    That is unlikely. Most likely, China hopes that over time China will become stronger, and the United States will weaken so much that it will not have to carry out a military operation at all.

      ... so it will be ... the Xiaoping people are already knocking satellites out of orbit and building up their own without any help, and the orbital station has already been tipped. its own .... and in the states the space program is stalling .. there are no engines for launch vehicles and it is not expected in the foreseeable future .... and the fact that Taiwan will become Chinese is a matter of time in a year or two ... won Hong Kong went to China. ..and nothing ... people live as they used to live .. it will be the same with Taiwan ...... but with China's wards, led by Eun, everything will be more difficult after Taiwan .... the real one will come to South Koreans kirdyk

    "And you will be cured" (Ivan Vasilievich changes his profession). An aircraft carrier of the PRC passed through the Taiwan Strait, so an American destroyer trampled its heels .. naive Yankees, the Chinese simply expel 10 thousand civilian fleets and block your ships and, in general, all unnecessary movement around Taiwan. If the PRC decides that they will quickly take the islands, no one will listen to you for sure, you are already downed pilots, gentlemen of the Yankees! Soon the US will kick countries weaker than the DPRK.

    Well, General David Berger has quite a bit of military experience.
    From the point of view of the minke whales, yes, slowly. The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation could roll Mariupol into rubble in a day, so the Americans would have acted.
    But the GDP chose the tactics of maximizing the salvation of civilians.
    On the one hand, yes, it is humane, but on the other hand, this leads to losses in the RF l / s.
    Remember how they took Prague, tried not to destroy historical monuments, which led to the loss of life of the Red Army. And they could roll out like the Angles Dresden. And who remembers it now?

    Navryatli in Taiwan there are Nazis who will expel people from maternity hospitals and schools with kindergartens. Everything will happen there so quickly that even intelligible news will not have time to come out, but it will all be over. Whoever wants to live on will stay alive. ... This will be the end of it.

    Yes, even let him take into account the Russian soldiers (Ukrainians), and Americans. The army of Ukraine, compared with the army of Vietnam. Their equipment, weapons, equipment, shells, and air defense. Let him compare all this with the advancement of the United States in Vietnam, and the Russian Armed Forces in Ukraine ..
