At this time the West is distracted by the U.S. election and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The authors believe the "operation" will be completed in just three days.
Morell and Winnefeld paint a worst case scenario in the article, published by the private, non-profit, professional military association. They assume the operation will unfold quickly, "beginning on the evening of 18 January," prior to the U.S. presidential inauguration.
At the same time, China will carry out cyber attacks to cripple the country by disabling the national power grid and other important utilities. This will be followed by a swift sea and air blockade, with several Peoples Liberation Army (PLA) submarines joining in the action.
