Illustrative Image Written by Piero Messina How to prevent China from attacking Taiwan? The gurus at the US Army War College in Carlisle in Pennsylvania have clear ideas. To make Taiwan less attractive, it is enough to destroy its semiconductor companies. The paper is called “Broken Nest, deterring China from invading Taiwan” and was presented in November last year by two researchers from the military study center, Jared M. McKinney and Peter Harris. The idea must be taken very seriously. Us Army War College is one of the most authoritative think tanks in the US military world. The college was born around the Carlisle Barracks, founded in 1757. Since 1904 the center has formed the military elite of the United States and allied countries. From the courses of the US Army War College have passed soldiers who have made the history of the US army such as George Patton (Landing in Normandy in the Second World War) William Westmoreland (the commander of the US forces in the Vietnam War) and Norman Schwarzkopf Jr ( the General who led the forces of the anti-Saddam coalition in the first Gulf War). In recent years, the College of Carlisle has also trained foreign

This news raises questions to even the most oblivious individuals concerning military affairs: How can 20 years of training, funding and supplying state of the art technologies could end up in such a swift defeat? Looking at the data gathered at the tactical level, the Afghan National Army (ANA) usually inflicted an amount of casualties considerably superior compared with the Taliban’s number. So how is it possible? To truly understand ANA’s failure to effectively counter the Taliban’s advance, we need to understand the level of corruption creeping through the army’s ranks since the establishment of a democratic government following the American invasion in 2001. In a 2016 investigation from the Helmand’s provincial council, it was found that approximately 40% of the ANA’s workforce only existed on paper. This means that during that time, out of the 25,000 troops posted to confront the Taliban in the Helmand province, only 15,000 were actually deployable for combat. This matter was
