Invading Taiwan

Yahoo News came up with a write up to say “Experts” now predict China will attack or invade Taiwan by 2023.

It even lists out the 4 possible attack scenarios etc.

So call Experts, really a lot of bulls!

From realistic logistics perspective, China had just completed its third aircraft carrier and it will take at least 2 to 3 years before it could become operational. China is still building its 4th aircraft carrier and from the time now to completion and operationally ready, it will take at least 5 years.

Why would China be in a hurry to invade Taiwan without sufficient military might to achieve a decisive victory?

Strategically speaking, China will need at least 4 aircraft carriers to effect a strong blockade, not half past six blockade. Even with 4 aircraft carriers, it still risks defeat by US forces. The basic strategy 101, 3F + 1R may not be enough for sustainable warfare.

Taiwan is not easy to invade as an island but prone to sea and air blockade.

But it also means that in modern warfare like this, Taiwan must have lots of surface to sea missiles specially designed to hit Chinese Navy vessels, just like China’s DF21 or DF26.

Good and effective Anti aircraft missiles are much easier to get nowadays but not surface to sea missiles.
Most probably the final assault by China would be preceded by massive drone attacks. They have demonstrated on this strategy in Kinmen recently.

It is not impossible to defend Taiwan against Chinese invasion but Taiwan is still overly complacent and lacking in preparations. The war must be fought with the assumption that US chicken out just like what they did in Ukraine.

But at least in Ukraine, US could continue to Supply military equipments via many other land borders but not for Taiwan.

    TRE Tech: I simply hate it when people cannot win in an argument and then chooses to use the CCP lover, PAP lovers crap to divert and slam others, do you?

    Aren’t you guilty of the same? Still dare to say others?

    You read your own writing carefully, where did you say “natives”? Your key word “1000 years”. 1,000 years before or after? You yourself confused by your own writing!

    Tech: Still trying the same trick of playing contextual word games with me? Sorry, I do learn and is not daft. Shoo… now go play with someone else more gullible.

    When I exposed your inadequacy, you evaded and turn around and accuse me of “playing contextual word game”. 有嘴说别人,没嘴说自己!

    To all the CCP experts on military aspects, can anyone give us an analysis of what happened at Saki airbase in Crimea? Who caused the explosions? What weapons were used? Why the experts at warfare left their million$$$ planes outside of hardened revetments? C’mon, don’t be lazy or shy – show us that it is not only TWN that you know about. If so expert on a complex operation like an amphibious assault on an island, then analyzing a strike on an airbase should be chicken feet, hor. Very confident you guys very proficient in internet searching for answers. Awaiting your insightful discussion.

    PAP mandate strong:
    @ The real majority of the world supports China. Go count the number of countries who support China military exercises these last few days.

    有啲 marketing 成份!

    Anyway i try looking but cannot find info. Can you kindly present the link ?

    If majority of world supports China, then china’s foreign minister wouldn’t have walked out on the ASEAN meeting. Maybe suddenly he kenna stomach ache?

    CCP is dangerous to the whole world.

    Katharine Murphy
    During 90 minutes of statecraft that was candid enough to be deeply chilling, China’s ambassador to Australia, Xiao Qian, crystallised the central question in Australia-China relations.

    Xi’s Australian representative – who was fluent, erudite, composed and periodically sardonic in response to preamble-heavy questioning at the National Press Club on Wednesday – floated a detente. How about more trade and less trash talk?

    Xiao’s pitch was simple. Can we just return to the days when Australia and China engaged in lucrative and mutually agreeable exporting and importing – while muting our irreconcilable conflicts of values?

    The ambassador had a preferred locution for this regime-sanctioned utopia. Resetting the relationship between Beijing and Canberra was about “creating favourable atmosphere”.

    Related: Chinese ambassador to Australia says Beijing will use ‘all necessary means’ for Taiwan ‘unification’

    Favourable atmosphere was apparently the precondition for everything: the removal of current trade barriers, a potential face-to-face meeting between Anthony Albanese and Xi Jinping at the G20 in Bali and visibility over the treatment of any Australians arbitrarily detained in China. He said the past five decades had demonstrated Australia and China could be “partners” despite having differences in political systems.

    Such a generous offer could only be accompanied by rules, however.

    Want to trade with China needs to abide by their rules. LOL

    I had much respect for Good Old Amercans before but the *In God we trust* good old UsA has changed into THE MIGHTY u$a.

    Lust for POWER n Greed for $ have replaced those good moral values.

    I am no commies’ fan , dont get me wrong.
    But what has become of democratic type in recent times?
    To be honest,i wish China could leave taiwan alone n allow taiwanese people to decide their own destiny.
    Afterall,it is the taiwanese who laboured to build Taiwan into what it is by themselves?

    Taiwan is so much different from Mainland *states*(provinces),even from HK.
    In practice,it has existed by taiwanese people’s own efforts.
    Seeking to regain *Mainland* n be *UNITED* was KMT’s grave mistake.
    The true blu taiwanese has to pay the price.

    Wow, sudden massive de-escalation over China’s threat to invade Taiwan. Looks like XJP just needed to score points for his bid of third term. Sure put up a good show, but as some mentioned, still a paper tiger after all. Yellow outside but peel away the skin inside is like LJ (rotten substance).

    theforgottongeneration: 1) Actually this TWN issue till THIS DAY is because of only ONE party – China. Does people now still hold modern Germany responsible for what Nazi Germany did in WW2? Does Poland keep screaming over land taken from them after WW2 by Russia/Ukraine? Who is passionate about TWN except China? Does the current generation really care what happened 70-80 years ago? Some claimed that MOST Taiwanese wants to be reunited with China – sure or not? Why not let the current generations decide what they what. Also did US elected Tsai or the Taiwanese elected her? Did they learn from pap on how to kelong a presidential election?

    2) China economy has not been doing well this year, largely due to their policy on covid and on reining in the tech firms. There is (verified) discourse on the ground; the favorite tactic for politicians is to redirect attention onto an EXTERNAL issue, better still painting that a foreign power is causing it. Hence Polsenki’s visit is a very opportune excuse to drum up the nationalistic fervor (to a level higher than necessary, what else?). Blaming USA or father or mother or God is also a convenient scapegoat – someone must be “responsible” for the slowing GDP, the constant lockdowns, etc. right? One must remember XJP really needs political points now to enshrine his third term in office.

    You forgot to take your medicine?

    Peace plan:
    1st Taiwan land may belongs to the shared communist Chinese and democratic Chinese…..but the Chinese people of Taiwan do not belong to communist China.

    They are Chinese Taiwanese or Formosans……..like Singapore people …….Chinese Singaporeans or Malay Singaporeans, etc.

    Taiwan should by now have built deep, multi-storey trenches and bunkers surrounding the whole Taiwan island which can easily be activated to bring the invading forces deep into the trenches and silos in the event of an attack by sea.

    These trenches coupled with mechanized grinders and pounders could easily take care of the invading forces and tanks by sea aka human incinerator.

    As for missiles and drones flying into Taiwan………there should be multifaceted howitsers, Thaads and appropriate missiles to take care of these. There will still be loss of lives in such eventuality.

    And last BUT most important is for the US, Taiwan, Japan, Europe(?) and the US missile ships to rain

    Missiles continuously to Beijing in the outbreak! The reign of the Communist can easily be toppled.

    So brilliant. You deserved to be called a genius.
    Just don’t forget to take your medication for insanity.
    China only needs to shut down the air and sea and let the Taiwanese hide in their deep bunkers for another 10 years will do.

    Oh, oh, Americans and Japanese can send their missiles to nuke China. China got no missiles and would not hit back. All the Chinese would be nuked. America and Japan untouched and live happily ever after. This is what fairy tales are made of for little boys and girls to believe in.

    Good response. No point talking properly with western unthinking ignorant sheep.

    They have no idea of history nor geography. They think Taiwan is in Australia and Vietnam has been peaceful for 100 years.
