Tensions Over China And Taiwan Are Slowly Rising: Outgoing Beyond The Military

Illustrative Image

The situation around Taiwan continues to escalate and more and more countries are watching developments. Countries such as the U.S. and Grait Britain are already developing a plan of action in case of an invasion of Taiwan by Chinese troops. China itself at the moment is limited to reconnaissance operations.

On April 30, two Su-30 fighters of the People’s Liberation Army of China (PLA) entered the skies of Taiwan. This was reported by Taiwan News, citing the local Ministry of National Defense and the Liberty Times.

The fighters were in Taiwan’s Air Defense Identification Zone on Saturday, April 30. The incursions took place at 8:53 a.m. and 1:23 p.m. at an altitude of 9,800 meters. Aircraft were spotted northeast of the Dunsha Archipelago (Paracel Islands).

The fighters eventually turned back after the Taiwanese military put their planes in the air, sent radio warnings, and deployed anti-aircraft missile systems to track the targets.

In April 2022, Taiwan recorded 72 such incursions. A total of 78 cases of such incursions were recorded, and 348 Chinese aircraft crossed the airspace.

In this context, it is important to note the position of the U.S., which is betting on reducing the risk of war with China because of Taiwan, but readiness for war as a last resort.

The U.S. held high-level talks with Great Britain on how it could work more closely to reduce the likelihood of war with China over Taiwan and for the first time explored plans in the event of conflict. The sides also discussed what role Britain would play if the U.S. found itself in a war with China over Taiwan.

At the same time, the official position of the United States is as follows: “The United States recognizes the government of the People’s Republic of China as the only legitimate government of China, there is only one China, and Taiwan is part of China.”

The official position of Great Britain also expresses solidarity with the constitution of the PRC: “Taiwan is a province of the PRC, Great Britain recognizes the government of the PRC as the only legitimate government of China. We do not deal with Taiwan’s authorities and we avoid any action that might imply recognition of it.

Chinese regulators recently held a meeting with the heads of Chinese banks on protecting foreign assets from possible U.S. sanctions. Officials held the meeting because of fears of U.S. sanctions in the event of military action in Taiwan. The meeting was attended by officials from China’s Central Bank and Ministry of Finance, as well as the heads of dozens of local and international lenders. Officials and participants did not mention specific scenarios, but a Chinese invasion of Taiwan is considered one possible trigger for such sanctions.  China’s huge dollar holdings range from more than $1 trillion in U.S. Treasury bonds to office buildings in New York City. Some bankers in attendance questioned whether Washington could ever afford to sever economic ties with China, given its status as the world’s second-largest economy, its huge stockpile of dollar assets, and its close trade relationship with the United States. It is difficult for the U.S. to impose massive sanctions against China, but the possibility has not been ruled out.

The Taiwan issue goes far beyond Sino-Taiwan relations and entails a host of aspects. Such a private issue could potentially affect the largest economic relations in the world – Sino-US trade relations. The introduction of Chinese troops into Taiwan entails a huge number of risks, and it is not yet clear whether China is willing to take these risks.

ADI Zones are not to be confused with a country’s sky (if even Chinese Taipei could be recognised as a country).

Rather, they are conventional and unilaterally defined military perimeters, ergo similar incursions, whilst significant, are not especially provocative or disruptive…

You are absolutely right. China has not invaded Taiwan’s airspace. Not according to international laws and standards. This constant whining is a common western tactic to make people believe one party is the aggressor while the other one is just the victim. People in the so called “western world” are mostly to stupid to understand propaganda and believe that crap. But what the west does is more than propaganda. They are constantly and openly lying and tweaking/faking facts to get their agenda going. The west is dying. Economically, financially and by means of social standards. Everyone can asses that simply by looking at their malicious actions and lies.

A war with China at its doorstep is not winnable for the US. It would be impossible for the US and NATO to supply arms to Taiwan and promote a proxy war like it’s happening in Ukraine. It’s an island and a small one and at about 100km from mainland China. I’m hoping there is no war and for peaceful reunification with their mainland.

The USA if they ever get their domestic situation sorted would beat China because China wouldn’t be fighting the USA, They would be fighting the USA, NATO, Japan, Philippines, Australia, possibly India and probably half a dozen more countries. USA would first crash China’s economy wait a few years build a big enough alliance then attack.

Crash China’s economy? You mean like what they are doing to Russia? LOL.

On what do you think depends China´s wealth and income? Growing rice? Some people are so brainless, no wonder war is possible. I always wonder, looking at the size of China, why the ordinary chinese should care about wether that comparable small island of Taiwan is part of China or not. But I guess it is a nice thing to distract and keep the people under control (have internal problems ? Start a war …there, problem solved, now they are cheering for me )

I think Taiwan should decide what they want to do, because China are involved in a pact with jews whenever they celebrate Victory Day on May 9th.

So given this its time for China to apologize to Japan and take a step back (Stalin made a pact with zionist jews which is a violation of Christian and Humanitarian Law).

Japan invaded China, killed and raped thousands of women, Japan needs to apologize and be held accountable for all those war crimes. The US can’t protect Japan forever and hopefully, one day when the US empire crumble, Japan will pay the ultimate price.

JHK

No, wrong Japan entered China to get rid of jews, just as Italy and Germany and Japan decided together to do so.

And suck it up because Nazis eliminated 27m + 6m jewish rats across Asia, so you are lucky we arent charging you for it.

And also the reason why you got raped was because we were resource constrained and could only afford to send that f7cker so apologies for that limitation and we didnt intend for you to be raped. And as proof, we got incinerated by little jew boy and so took a much bigger hit than you.

wtf is with the jew hate, they didn’t do shit. If anything the pisslims were the issue.

JHK

Hitler gassed 6m of you for impersonating an Israeli.

27m commie jews were buried like cockroaches across slavalamp.

So now we take Moscowstan break kgb legs, and build our Nazi Church over Peter The Ingrate.

Chinese bankers question whether they could sever economic ties them just ask Japan, the Chinese need a reality check. Look up Plaza Accord how USA destroyed the Japanese economy which was the second biggest and fastest growing economy in the world and they were an ally.

Haven’t they just stole 300 Billion dollars of reserves from Russia ? They’ll just steal your trillion dollars of bonds and use that to finance the actions they want to put on you to crash your economy. USA don’t give a damn if the rest of the world burns as long as they win. They’d rather rule in hell than serve in heaven.

If they manage to sort out the situation with Russia China will be easy in comparison. Crashing economies and coups are their specialty USA is not your friend or partner.

Asians are Asians first and Family is by Blood First.

So China has to be against jews before anything against any Asian.

The rule is simple if a neighbor sees jewish rats in their neighbors backyard then the neighbor is obliged to eliminate the filthy jewish rats, even if taken for pets or food.

In fact I advise China to disassociate with 1. jews, 2. russia, and 3. commies.

On one principle, Asians are Brothers and Family by Blood first, if not then as Believers in Jesus(as), if not Noah(as), if not Adam(as).

Xactly

Australia is under a complete lock down that’s almost as bad as China’s for two years now. People can’t travel outside 2.5 kilometers from their house in Australia. They have to “check in” by digital phone whenever the government texts them, its a TOTAL POLICE STATE run by the usual FMs. They are a bunch of slaves to their Masters in Davos and they have betrayed their entire Heritage. Pathetic shit hole of a country now. As a military power they are a joke: they’re too busy arresting ordinary people for the terrible crime of now wearing a face diaper: which is scientifically PROVEN to do absolutely nothing in illness “protection”.

It sounds like your country is the wrong kind of fascism. But Im sure the right kind of Fascism would fix it right up.
