New generals selected by Chinese President Xi Jinping were chosen for their political loyalty to him and would almost certainly support a Chinese invasion of Taiwan.
This article by Greg Torode, writing for Reuters, makes the following points:
- Xi has purged thousands of allegedly corrupt officers from the People's Liberation Army (PLA).
- Xi has therefore tightened the Chinese Communist Party(CCP) control over the military.
- Important to note that the PLA is officially the armed wing of the CCP.
- Xi has clearly stated that China would 'never promise to give up the use of force' in its plan to take control of Taiwan.
