Report: China Prepping For Regional Wars

China intends to focus its growing military might to on short, technologically advanced military operations within the region, according to a new Defense Department report on China’s security developments.

The report states that if the Chinese go toe-to-toe with a neighbor, most likely Taiwan, they will likely  “use advanced computer systems, information technology, and communication networks to gain operational advantage over an opponent.”

While China may spar with the U.S. if the country intervenes with military operations against Taiwan, China’s larger strategy is aimed at avoiding direct confrontation with the American military.

The report, available here, is presented to Congress annually.
