The End of Taiwan?

Even as the war in Ukraine has preoccupied Washington for the past few months– President Joe Biden is now in South Korea and Japan to rally his top allies to form a long-term security and economic partnership with the US. But make no mistake — this Asia trip is all about China, to offset China’s growing regional influence and America’s gradual recognition of Taiwan as an independent country. Democrats eliminated the words “one China” from their platform last summer and Mr. Biden was the first American president since 1978 to welcome Taiwan’s envoy during his inauguration in January. In April, his administration declared that it would lift decades-old restrictions on formal US interactions with the Taiwanese government.

In that, what the US did, was first abrogating the mutual defense treaty in the Taiwan Relation Act (TRA) which has been in effect until today. If the US is willing to pay an extreme price to defend democracy, it would have renounced TRA, recognizing Taiwan as an independent country in the United Nations. The Taiwan Relations Act does not guarantee the U.S. will intervene militarily if the PRC attacks or invades Taiwan nor does it relinquish it, as its primary purpose is to ensure the US’s one-China policy will not be changed unilaterally by the president and ensure any decision to defend Taiwan will be made with the consent of Congress. However, the Taiwan Relations Act of 1979 obligates the U.S. government to provide equipment of a defensive nature to Taiwan. US officials are now re-evaluating Taiwan’s military capabilities to see if it is capable of repelling an invasion, as Ukrainian troops have done. Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen is attempting to re-orient the country’s military toward an asymmetric warfare by purchasing a significant quantity of mobile, deadly weapons that are difficult to target. Such measures increase the likelihood of a devastating conflict. The more the United States and Taiwan formally close the door on reunification, the more likely Beijing is to seek it by force.

To Beijing, the island’s de facto independence is imperialism’s poisonous fruit: Japan snatched it away in 1895, and America’s Seventh Fleet blocked the mainland from reclaiming it in 1950. The “one China” illusion helped Beijing believe that peaceful reunification remained a possibility by keeping US relations with Taiwan unofficial. This provided a pretext for it not to invade. Militarily, PRC is able to take on Taiwan any time, and there isn’t much that the US or anyone else can do about it. Russia rolled into Crimea and Eastern Ukraine. That was much closer to home for NATO and Western democracies. Yet, nothing, by European powers or US except sending shipments of small, mobile weapons like Javelin, Stinger missiles and armed drones. If Taiwan resists, or counter-attacks the mainland with fighter jets and some missiles in coastal cities that would just worsen the ultimate response by China, so the fight is over soon after it starts. Any naval or aviation intervention by US will be considered a challenge to Chinese sovereignty and hence an act of war.

So long as Taiwan does not do something to provoke China -like declaring independence -there is no reason for China to use force against them. Why would China want to make its own problems worse? Meanwhile Japan and S Korea are in a spat. Okinawa wants independence from Japan, inflamed by a strong US military presence there. Kim Jong Un is eager to exploit any divisions and diversions, now wielding a nuclear arsenal. Conflict between India and Pakistan (a newly-minted and emboldened China ally) is close with the situation in Kashmir. And then there is the building powder keg between a (soon to be nuclear-armed) Iran and the Arab-Israeli alliance. Oh yes, and don’t forget Russia…We are closer to the precipice of WW3 than we have been in a very long time. This is no time for brinkmanship.

    Holy cow, Okinawa was conquered by the Japanese emperor prior to 2nd World War. The US army took over Okinawa, instead of restoring its independence. It became a colony, the same as Malaya after WWII.

    Where’s Vivian? Quick. Sanction Japan for destroying Okinawa sovereignty.

    The Spore Straits is even narrower than the Straits of Malacca. If the Spore Straits is blocked, it is more effective than blocking the Straits of Malacca.

    As such, Spore can be caught in a major War.

    The Taiwan issue is very distracting for China. The conditions are perhaps ripe for China to take military action to take back Taiwan…

    - Biden is weak and the US military is perhaps at its weakest in decades

    - China knows the Covid jabs can do much harm and I presume none of the PLA got the real Covid jabs. US soldiers are said to be suffering deaths and injuries

    - So much weapons have been given to Ukraine (and are easily destroyed by Russia that USA is probably running low on inventory for short-range and handheld missiles.

    - The world’s economy is heading for a major recessions. Sanctions against China will surely lead to a collapse of the global economy.

    - China has amassed masssive grains reserves enough to feed 1.4 billion for 1.5 years

    - The Middle-East is not likely to stop selling oil to China. The Arab nations are not European nations and there is no NATO in the Middle-East.

    - I see the timing is ripe for China to seize Taiwan by force and it will probably happen before the Ukraine war ends.

    Taiwanese are Chinese. A large percentage are favorable to re-uniting with China and be autonomous.

    Taiwan weapons are aging and no match against China. Ukraine got advanced weapons plus years of expert train by US and NATO experts. Not so in Taiwan as China is watching the entire Taiwan day and night.

    The question is how China will invade Taiwan and what strategies it will take to achieve a quick conquest and yet inflict the least amount of deaths, injuries to Taiwan?

    For example, to keep Taiwan military planes grounded will mean simply destroying all usable runways at the military bases and even commercial airports. That will avoid mass casualties. Plus destroying their control towers and communications system

    All exits from military camps, all nearby bridges, etc. can be bombed with minimal casualties. This will keep armored vehicles and tanks boxed in until the Chinese have landed with their massive armaments. Any emergency repairs will mean another round of bombing to create more big holes

    China will blockade all sea and air routes. And I expect that China will invade from all points of the compass to dilute the Taiwan forces

    Ports…big and small will be invaded rather than storming the beaches. Once you secure a port, you have access to concrete piers and ships can unload quickly.

    The big difference with Ukraine..Taiwan is an island and there is no NATO equivalent. Not possible for USA to reinforce Taiwan on short notice when Mainland China is merely a short sailing distance and flight time from Taiwan.

    Will Taiwan forces fight back? Remains to be seen.

    Couldn’t agree more. China making a move on Taiwan would be met with a whimper I believe. Like a hemorrhoid, better not let US’s sleepy Joe fester on it. And there’s too much at risk to even think about trying to save Taiwan from a PRC invasion. It is a foolish and dangerous notion, and no good will come from it.

    I have a radical view…China used a placebo or perhaps a mild flu vaccine instead of that is used outside of China. Massive lockdowns are also a great way to strengthen the society, to test their patience when there will be hardships when the War with Taiwan starts.

    I read of an alarming rise of illness among the American armed forces. Dr. McCullough, a noted pathologist who has examined over 500,000 patients via his microscrope said that up to 30% of American airforce may be grounded if tests were done after vaccination.

    Think of a War…the PLA will not have to worry about vaccine-induced adversities. The Americans are hampered by sickness. In a War, every soldier counts.

    Do not think that China is fearful of Covid. They have much deeper reasons and strategies…and it all leads to taking back Taiwan.

    Xi has been saying that for several years, exhorting the PLA to be on war footing. Even Putin never exhorted the Russian military to go on war footing…he used war games as a way to mobilize.

    Xi is different, he is dressed in green military fatigues, inspect the military parade as the Commander-in-Chief, is regularly announcing new improvements to the hardware and weapons, is conducting numerous incursions into Taiwan’s Flight Identification Zone.

    Xi has been preparing for the Taiwan War. He seldom talks about a peaceful reunification. Instead he keeps repeating, Taiwan has to return to the Motheland.

    Covid is being use also for war mobilization. Over 20,000 cargo vessels are stuck at Chinese ports now; over 20% of the global fleet…all stacked up off the coast and even up the Yangtze River and blanketing the sea.

    But naval vessels can still move quickly via sea lanes that are kept open.

    The massive backlog can easily hide the mobilization of the Chinese forces from the prying eyes of the satellites.

    We say it is best to be a province of China.

    Years ago while in Boston while sitting on a bench at 9pm on a summer afternoon when the sky was still bright, we were harassed by 3 teenagers.

    A few years later while in a shopping mall in Baltimore, at that time it was the Michael Fay incident, a group of teenagers asked for a fight. We could have floored them all quickly in a hand combat but we didn’t know if they had guns so we ran into a computer shop and waited there until the group left. When we met a German colleague at the waterfront in front of the mall a little later, he said he was harassed by someone there. We laughed saying he is such a big sized white man and yet he was targeted.

    Another few years later while in LAX, we asked an white man if he wanted to go eat fastfood at the joint across the road from the hotel and he said NO. The next day in the newspapers, apparently there was an armed robbery at the traffic light crossing between our hotel and the fastfood joint.

    We have many more such real life stories to tell.

    But long story short. We have moved around in China for many years and have never even met any such incident. China is a far safer place to live and raise children.

    Why do we say China?

    Let us give an example closer to home.

    Before China took back Macau, Macau was a triad zone.

    If one moved from HK to Macau on a day trip and didn’t buy a return ticket in advance, because not knowing when to make the return trip, hahaha, good luck.

    At the ticket counter, everything, (ferry helicopter etc.) back to HK is said to be SOLDOUT but the ticket office will have someone talk to you on the side saying if you paid this X amount you can get your tickets (ferry helicopter etc.).

    But after China too back Macau, it is a joy to be there especially during the cool month of Dec and Jan.

    If Singapore is a province of China for sure drug problem becomes NO problem.

    Yo bro. Interesting subject.

    Contrary to popular opinions, most wars are motivated internally rather than externally. Example, I believe that Putin was motivated more about his hold on to power domestically rather than NATO encroachment.

    Rationally, what would Ukraine do for Russia economically or politically? In fact, it made Russia’s position worse. But if the trouble was internal, than an external war will distract and forced cohesion as a response to external threats, keeping his position.

    When not if, Taiwan is to be attacked, depends on how Xi finds himself politically after November 2022. He is entering his third term with question marks on his economic performance and China’s weaker international standing. A Xi that feels weak internally, may make a sooner rather than later move on Taiwan.

    The things u can look out for. The movement of capital for both China and Taiwan, weakening currencies and the chip industry. Taiwan is a major manufacturer for chips in IT, any onshoring to US (already partly started) is a sign that the msg is leaked to prepare for war.

    When China is building bridges, roads, high speed railways, ports, infrastructures all of the world, the Americans are signing gang pacts to start wars in the name of peace and stability.

    The Taiwan Relations Act is not a mutual defense treaty. It is a unilateral piece of legislation by the Americans to offer help to Taiwan in a conflict. The Taiwanese has no part in the making of this Act. This is the boorish part of American laws, making laws about protecting and defending other countries and using it to interfere in other countries domestic affairs.

    China can easily blockage Taiwan by air and by sea and Taiwan would yield in days. China is now in full control of the seas and airspace and no American aircraft or warship can approach Taiwan within a radius of 2,000km without be shot and destroyed. The Chinese ADAA defence strategy in now fully in force.

    Thank you, bro
    The thing that’s odd, and perhaps demonstrative of Xi or Putin’s political and economic system failures, would be IMO their inability to take advantage of their authoritarian leadership to run their countries super efficiently.

    Rather than Patriarch Kirill and his Russian Orthodox Church, which is now supported, among more than a dozen of autokefal churches under the Constantinople leadership, only by the equally dangerous Serbian Orthodox Church. Putin is merely an apparatchik in this fascist machinery, easily replaceable by another one made of the same material.

    Democracy is quite messy, but it really is the best we have and probably the best we will ever see- as imperfect as it is. China is a much more serious country than Russia: It is not built on oil, lies and corruption (though it has plenty of the latter), but on the hard work and manufacturing talents of its people…” You really understand the nuances of China where people criticize things all the time within, yes? :)

    Biden’s remarks in Tokyo that USA will intervene militarily in Taiwan will not carry much weight. Maybe Biden will not be President for much longer. The potential replacement is even worse.

    USA has given so many weapons to Ukraine that its own stock of weapons for war is probably quite depleted.

    All the more, it is perhaps time for China to make the move.

    China has lots of airborne troops. I expect they will seize the vital TSMC main R&D and production facilities. A thousand paratroopers will do the work while other forces hold off any Taiwan military response.

    I expect attacks from all points of the compass so that the relatively small Taiwan military is stretched to its limits. Its airforce will probably be grounded when all the runways are bombed. Any plane that managed to take off will be shot down.

    How many weeks will it take for USA to even mobilize? Easily six to eight weeks to get sufficient forces to the Far-East. Expect N Korea to be poised to start another war front too if US forces start to attack China.

    Japan talks a lot but I expect the Japanese to sit back and let others do the fighting. Russia will be mobilizing its forces on the disputed islands to tie down Japanese forces.

    I see Spore in a No-Win situation. China views Spore as a US ally. Russia is already offended by Spore.

    Straits of Malacca. The Chinese Navy will be well-positioned at that strategic location even before USA can make its move.

    As for India…well..they will sit back and watch the fireworks. Modi will sit cross-legged in his usual peaceful meditation. None of India’s business anyway.

    https://www.cnn.com/2022/05/23/politics/biden-taiwan-china-japan-intl-hnk/index.html
    Directly from the western press:
    Tokyo (CNN)President Joe Biden said Monday that the United States would intervene militarily if China attempts to take Taiwan by force, a warning that appeared to deviate from the deliberate ambiguity traditionally held by Washington.
    The White House quickly downplayed the comments, saying they don’t reflect a change in US policy. It’s the third time in recent months — including during a CNN town hall in October — that Biden has said the US would protect Taiwan from a Chinese attack, only to have the White House walk back those remarks.

    US will never rescue Taiwan. It will send arms prior to actual conflict. Because they understand that Taiwan is a mosquito that landed on China’s testicles. As is emblematic of Communists flags, the temptation to use a sledgehammer to scratch an itch will have untold consequences down generations.

  • US very lost:

    People don’t trust US dollar. People also don’t trust US technology companies. These stocks have been dropping heavily for a long time.

    Why? Because people around the world know that these tech companies behave worst than US marines. They behave like spies and saboteurs, ready to be activated any time POTUS wants it.

    Real Democracy: The American economy is still holding because they could just print fiat money. When confidence in the dollar is gone, no one would trust the dollar, the fiat economy would be worse than any banana republic. They may be rich before, but not anymore. It is a house of cards.

    The lovers of white farts still believe that the Americans are doing well and China is in a mess waiting to implode as predicted by the Japanese pretending to be Chinese calling himself Gordon Chang. This Japanese is still hoping that China would collapse like all the white farts lovers here because China is doing everything wrong.

    China does not need any wars, and as long as there is no wars, China would overtake the fake democracy America in less than 10 years as the biggest economy in the world in nominal terms. China already surpassed the fake democracy American economy in PPP terms since 2014.

    The Americans are in fear and desperate to provoke China into a war to stop China’s growth and throwing everything into China’s path instead of trying to be better than China.

    A sick economy based on printing money and credit cannot continue to blow the balloon and hope that it would not burst. They are so sick and so desperate that they risked weaponsing the dollar and the SWIFT international financial system, destroying all confidence and credibility in both. Now every country is finding ways to shift out of the American dollar and SWIFT. It is only a matter of time before the house of cards would collapse.

    An inefficient and corrupt system based on printing money and not producing real goods other than weapons of war will self destruct on its own when confidence on the dollar is history.

    But, but, the Chinese system have so many problems and would crash. The American system got no problems and would be better and better and can continue to incur more debt and more debt. The balloon will never burst even with non stop farting. Good thinking. Keep praying.

    Yo bro. Just mocking them. Talk nonsense all the time, those clowns. And they do more harm to China liked what Nazis did to Germany.

    Fiat money is not equal to global reserve. The conditions for global reserve are well known, among the requisites are free capital market and rule of law.

    In fact , it is arguable if US dollar is merely fiat, coz FED operations require T-bills in exchange. The banking system is transparent enough for hedge funds to trust it, unlike China banking which is more opaque.

    But these crackpots will never understand, they just bs their way. Same idiots saying China currency will overtake US more than a decade ago, shows their paltry understanding in a buffet of finance.

    As for Taiwan. I think a weakened Xi will try, but the repercussions will be many folds, not least overseas Chinese will react adversely.

    Cheers!

    Really pity their president Biden. Old man working so hard while the young killing own Americans at home. Just by looking at the relentless killings in US by gun toting fanatics, you can understand why Americans are spreading conflicts and wars around the world. Biden’s travel to the East is another harbinger of war to come.

    After all the shits in Afghanistan, Ukraine, they are staring another war in the east. Maybe those who supports the white farts are staying in the US mired in too much of ‘white farts’ to realize that the US is on a downward spiral. US now is at the mercy of China’s gen Z.

    It is so painful to hear the truth, that your white farts countries are in a mess and the white farts are really smelly. Got so hurt could not even type a few decent words correctly. Take a deep breath boy, and stop smelling white farts and you will be alright.

    Or just keep deluding yourself that all is well in white farts country. The white farts empire would never fall, doing everything so right, all looking like angels in white.

    Silly ass.

    The Nazis are all in the US, Canada and Nato. Heard of Trump, Bolton, Bannon, the neocons? These are the Nazis that are training the Neo Nazis in Ukrained to massacre the Russians. The Neo Nazis like Zelensky are running Ukraine, supported and funded by the American and Nato Nazis.

  • K Gupta:

    As a person of Indian origin, I have always found the Chinese to treat me as one of themselves rather than as a stranger. I still remember a conference in Chongqing where a young Chinese woman carried my backpack for two hours because “elderly professors should not have to carry their own backpacks.” A Chinese student of mine (in NYC) tells me, “Once a professor, always a professor.” He will be my student for the rest of our lives. In US I am lucky I don’t get mucked/assault or worst gunned by some blacks or whites.

    America is a good nation (in some ways) but it is a mistake to think that the Chinese have nothing to say for themselves other than money. There is a lot going for the Chinese people and America would be making a mistake that China could never make “cultural” inroads into world culture.

    Lol. Another sotong moment.

    1. Trump is a Nazis made from US left press. It was the left press that painted him as such. From someone always complaining about western propaganda , u took it hook, line and sinker, with a US dildo up for good measure.

    Trump would have dealt with Putin and sweeten the deal for Zelensky.

    2. Bolton is a neocon. Li Zuocheng is a neocon. If one is characterized as a Nazi, so is the other.

    2. Zelensky, US , Nato, Nazis? Perhaps.

    But only China used the ( German legal theorist Carl Schmitt. Known as Hitler’s “Crown Jurist,” Schmitt joined the National Socialist Party in 1933, and, though he was only officially a Nazi Party member for three years, his anti-liberal jurisprudence had a lasting impact—at the time, by helping to justify Hitler’s extrajudicial killings of Jews and political opponents, and then long afterward. )

    “Since Xi Jinping became China’s top leader,” Flora Sapio, a sinologist at the University of Naples, wrote, “Carl Schmitt’s philosophy has found even wider applications in China, in both ‘Party theory’ and academic life.” This shift is significant: It marks a move from what had been an illiberal government in Beijing—one that flouts liberal norms as a matter of convenience—to an anti-liberal government—one that repudiates liberal norms as a matter of principle.
