WP: US set to unleash ‘drone hell’ if China attacks Taiwan

The United States is planning a massive use of drones to defend Taiwan in the event of a Chinese attack, The Washington Post reports.

The publication quotes Samuel Paparo, head of the US military’s Indo-Pacific Command, as saying.

“I want to use a number of classified systems to make the Taiwan Strait feel like a scene from drone hell,” he said.

The publication said this would slow down a possible Chinese invasion and give the US time to prepare a response.

Paparo said his goal is to ensure that between now and 2027 and beyond, the US military and allies have the means to prevent a Chinese attack.

Earlier, US President Joe Biden did not rule out the use of the US army in Taiwan in the event of a Chinese attack.
