Yomiuri carried an op-ed by USFJ Commander Schneider, who will step down tomorrow. The Air Force general emphasized the importance for the U.S. military and the SDF to further step up their interoperability in order to deal with what he called an “increasingly aggressive China.” He said it is indispensable for the two militaries to conduct high quality training on a daily basis to maintain “credible deterrence” against the PLA and other adversaries.
