WASHINGTON – Airmen, including officers, Air Force United States of America (USA) reacted with horror, shock, and fear to a memo by a senior general advising them to prepare for conventional war against China within two years.
On January 27, thousands of airmen received a communiqué from General Mike Minihan informing them of what he called a “gut” telling him the US would fight China in 2025, and demanding they be prepared to fire a “clip” at a 7 meter target with understanding. full that the most important thing is an unrepentant death.
“Aim to the chief,” added the memo, which also included instructions for updating their virtual “Record of Emergency Data,” which tells the military what to do in the event of a service member’s death.

Several members of the Air Force were shocked by the memo, including one officer who told Military.com that many of his subordinates couldn’t believe what they were seeing.
“Some of my pilots were scared when they read the memo,” said the officer, who declined to be identified.
“I feel random email blasts to thousands of airmen is an inappropriate way to direct them to basically prepare for war with an almost equal enemy,” continued the officer, who was launched Thursday (2/2/2023).
The officer reportedly indicated that it was “inaccurate” to describe the magazine as a “clip”, and that the pilot’s insistence on “head aiming” was “dramatic”.
Furthermore, he notes that the general’s suggestion contradicts the lessons taught to snipers during marksmanship, which encourages snipers to aim for the center of mass of the target.
“Someone sarcastically joked, ‘Aim for the head. Spoken like a true marksman!’” added the officer.
