China Will Not Invade Taiwan

For seven decades, the world has been told that an invasion of Taiwan is imminent. The American military-industrial-congressional complex needs threats to justify wartime budgets, and China provides one excuse. American warships and aircraft routinely operate just off China’s coast. If China complains, the world is warned that China is threatening military action. The good ole “China will soon invade Taiwan” tale is a perpetual favorite. In reality, China lacks the naval power to invade Taiwan and attempting to conquer this large island would prove bloody, devastate the Chinese economy, lead to domestic unrest, and may not succeed.

wrong, so wrong. Taiwan isn’t France. modern combat isn’t WW2 or even Iraq 2003. China is willing to accept decimation of Taiwan. They said so. More likely they’ll cut off the head in a blitzkrieg. China announced that’s their plan. Recently they said they can do it in 24 hours. They still need to shorten that time b/c if America can respond before they’ve taken the island, they fail. but they are close.

Contrary to the assertion stated above, China apparently intends to be taken seriously, in fact and in the in-your-not-saving-face tenor of its comments of late:

Australia risks backsliding into a poor country in Asia Pacific
PLA warplanes featured in drills in Taiwan Straits ‘capable of seizing air superiority and command of sea’

President Trump’s authentic reaction to hearing of Justice Ginsburg’s death was respectful
