The fact that the Taiwanese responded to what happened in HK by voting for pro-independence DPP proves what Taiwanese want. And that is to not reunify and to not be a subject of dictatorship CCP. Why would they? Taiwanese have far better living standards than the Chinese. To reunify is to downgrade, no point.

The war for reunification is inevitable mah!

China is hoping not to fight the war over the next 10 yrs....hoping some peaceful means of reunification can be achieved loh!
But if cannot be done....then war ....to achieve its aim will be likely loh!

The USA action...recently had narrow down the timeline....from 10 yrs....to lightly not more than 5 yrs b4 decisive action is taken mah!

Someone forward this to my whatsApp group.

Sorry to pop your bubble but I am American. Served during desert storm. 11B. A military assessment is done by not being “patriotic” but by being non-biased and looking at the evidence.

I don’t assume anything. Where do you get your assessment from? I get mine from the Pentagon’s papers on China.

China has far better technology than Russia. And according to the Pentagon, there is no defense against China’s ship killer missiles.

So even if all of NATO and Japan’s ships show up along with the US, they would just get sunk. One shot, one kill. There is no way for anyone current military to stop a maneuverable mach 20 missile that can evade incoming fire.

China has proven it has the capabilities. They hit a moving ship in the SCS with 2 DF-26 and 2 DF-21. The DF-26 is a mach 18–20 missile. The DF-21 is a mach 10 missile.

China has nothing to lose because according to US simulations, the US loses badly. Losing every ship within 1,000 miles of China.

You can also go read the Rand Corporations simulation results if you don’t like the Pentagon’s. Their report is the same. They’ve been running simulations for 15 years and the US has lost badly every time.

15 years ago it was 90% aircraft lost. Today, it’s 100% and all ships.

China is the only nation to have landed on Mars on the first try. Even the US had to do it twice to land on Mars. The EU tried 3 times. All failed. Russia tried twice, all failed.

China has the best launch record in the world.

They landed on the dark side of the moon, first try. They docked a space station capsule 90 degrees to the orbiting space station. Never been done. Because it is much easier to dock with the same axis than 90 degrees.

China hit 6 out of 6 anti-missile mid course interceptor. US hit 10 out 20.

Currently, China’s missiles out class ours. Their air to air missiles out range ours. Their regular anti-ship missile out range ours and is supersonic. Harpoon is still subsonic.

They detected the F-35 stealth fighter and intercepted it before they reached the East China Sea.

I’m inclined to agree with the Pentagon. We fight China, it will be a one sided fight with US on the losing end. And this is my assessment as a scientist and a US Army vet.

While the US has been fighting Islamic fanatics for the last 30 years. China has been studying US air and sea battle tactics and designing weapons specifically to beat the US. They have succeeded quite well. All their weapons are designed to counter the US strengths and turn them into weaknesses.

And they have unlimited ammo. US ships have 90–120 VLS launch cells. At last half are land attack missiles and can’t be used to defend the ship.

Even if they don’t use the hypersonic missiles, just their supersonic anti-ship missiles can easily overwhelm our ships and sink them en mass.

Taking over Taiwan? Easy. Taiwan won’t fight. I am Taiwanese, most of my relatives are still in Taiwan. My mom watches Taiwan TV and she talks to her relatives every week.

Maybe this is before your time, check out Operation Just Cause. After suppressing Taiwan air defense, China will fly mechanized infantry and tank units over to Taoyuan airport and land there like we did in Panama. Then drive to Taipei and arrest the DPP, what’s left of them.

Every time there is an alarm about Chinese missiles, the President runs to her plane and takes off. But she doesn’t seem to realize that fighter planes are much much faster than commercial planes.

Sslee,

#What is Taiwanese want??
Know what happen during 2018 Taiwan local election?
By 2020 DPP use the Hongkong summer of unrest to their full advantage to swing opinion/vote to DPP.,#

Don't only judge to review last 2020 Taiwan election, you should review back what happened before and after former President Ma, before Ma, Taiwanese hate the corruption by former President Chen and the vote swing to Ma for landslide won, not only corruption let Ma landslide won, another reason is Ma will resume the 92 Consensus talks, in that time I also have hopeful President Ma can solve the china and Taiwan issue via 92 Consensus, but disappoint that China rejected 92 Consensus and after that China's missile flight over Taiwan island, then the Taiwanese fully anger about the China's action and Ma's party also lost the president post in next election. In this trend, Taiwanese will choose 92 Consensus for peace and freedom, but if lost the freedom they prefer choose back the corruption's party. This trend similar our country before and after PH, only the issue different.

ir-regardless of democracy or communist- both also generate bigger social gap. powerful elites become richer whereas poor become poorer. both also capitalist not real socialist. to avoid backlash from poor marginalised, china need to find an enemy i.e USA to divert from own local socio-economy issue and vice versa. using national sentiment as diversion from poor domestic governance

War start because of unresolved historical grievances but Western wage war as a form of democracy agaist autocracy (ideology war) without thinking what war will do to the people and the world.

War should be outlaw as crime against humanity. The real war is to fight climate change and poverty.

Confucian scholars talk about rituals and morals and benevolence and reciprocity but look at the history of China when its military is weak?! That is why Mao is so angry with the Confucians.

Many people around Mao committed atrocity using Mao name. This is why Deng put in the two term limit for CPP top leader.

When you have leader for life and when he is old and connot think clearly that is the time where people around him rule using the old man name.

Aircraft carrier killer
The Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) has deployed the world's first ground launched hypersonic glide vehicle designed for anti ship missions, with a new variant of the DF-17 described in state media reports as an “aircraft carrier killer.”

Agreed with you, our real enemy is climate change, you can win a piece of land via war, but you cannot use the war to win the earth from climate change.

Can China sink U.S. carriers?


US Pentagon watched as China hit a moving ship in the SCS with 2 DF-26 and 2 DF-21 hypersonic missiles.

If they hit, only one is required to sink a ship of any kind. Reason is that the amount of energy in these two hypersonic missiles is equivalent to 10 tons of tnt and 2.5 tons of tnt.

Even for a civilian who doesn’t know anything about ships, anyone would know that when you are talking about tons of explosives inside a ship, that is the end of the ship.

China is a communist nation and yet it has the fastest developing economy in the world. How does China balance the conflicting dynamics of this economic structure?

China is NOT a Communist nation. And hasn’t been since Mao died and Deng took over in 1970’s. Go get an economics textbook. Any first year textbook will do. Just look it up on Amazon.

Read it. You will be greatly enlightened. The fact that you think that China is Communist is ridiculous. It’s been 50 years of capitalism and you think China is Communist?!?

There is no conflict in the Chinese economic structure. The companies want to make money. The job of the government is to moderate that and ensure that the companies don’t get to do whatever they want.

The job of the government is to ensure a fair competition and to take care of the people. You know…We the people.

This old Chinese Malaysian brain full of money and dirty things likes corruption. For his 70+ years living is Msia still didn’t learn the tolerance, humble and unity from local ethics. Hello apek when lee Kuan yew say to tunku Abdul Rahman he want to leave Malaya , Tunku just give it away without any threaten / military action / dirty way catch him up. Somehow support them with water supply and foods. Nowadays both country living peacefully and help each other , provide opportunities for a lot of Malaysia Chinese to Singapore working either successful in private / hold government high position.
Malaysia government really feed you with good rice, but u never learn how to be a humble and tolerance. As a Chinese local, I feel sad our old man Chinese in Malaysia mindset is so narrow.

Russian President Vladimir Putin accused the United States on Tuesday of whipping up tensions in Asia, describing a visit to Taiwan by U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as a "thoroughly planned provocation".

"The situation in Ukraine shows that the US is trying to prolong this conflict. And they act in exactly the same way, fuelling the potential for conflict in Asia, Africa and Latin America," Putin said in televised remarks

There are many Japanese stay in Taiwan after World War II. They are third generation in Taiwan now. They will do whatever thing so that China will attack Taiwan. They will follow Japanese/US Governments. No way to differentiate those Japanese dogs or Taiwanese eg Taiwan President Tsai.
