…Target First?

"US Navy warships have been on the front lines in the Western Pacific, carrying out freedom-of-navigation operations and other exercises to counter Chinese claims and to bolster allies in the region.

But in a conflict with China, those ships won't be the only or even the first targets, as Beijing will seek to eliminate the logistical support on which the US military relies, according to retired Navy Adm. Gary Roughhead.

"We neglect logistics, and logistics is how this country has won wars," Roughead, who was the chief of naval operations from late 2007 until his retirement in 2011, said at a House Armed Services Committee hearing Thursday…"

Imho…the Chinese would do what the Americans would do in the beginning of any major war… Target command and control. Key bases. Communication centres… Logistics will be later….

Like to see em try. The Chai neese are like a character run by a taxi driver in a game of Advanced Recon I ran in 1996. Their name is Lou Ser.

Yes, they'll try to hit our C3, forward bases, and military assets first. Logistics is important, but only once the game is in play.

Not sure they'll have enough forces and ordnance to hit everything at once, should a shooting war start.

Guam and Okinawa would be on the list, perhaps the US facilities in Japan and Philippines.

The problem there is – if they attack US assets in Japan, the Philippines and other countries around the area – they WILL be at war with pretty much everyone in the area…

They'll end up in a war on multiple fronts before they realize it.
