China preparing the military for a potential war with Taiwan warns former US security adviser.
President Xi Jinping has told the military to "focus all energy on fighting" for potential war, reports say.
Tensions between China and Taiwan have grown over the independence push, and China claims Taiwan as its own.
President Xi Jinping wants to "make China whole again" by subsuming Taiwan, according to a former general.
The best way to prevent war is deterrence. The US should invest more in national security to deter China.
China has a strong military and seeks to grow its influence in the Pacific region.
The US and its allies should extend their power and encourage allies to invest in defense as a deterrent to China.
The US should not make the same mistakes as with Russia's invasion of Ukraine, warns a former general.
