Exclamation China Military Drills have invaded Taiwan

BREAKING: Chinese military exercises near Taiwan have encroached on the island's territory and amount to a blockade of its sea and air space, the defence ministry has said.

The exercises by the Chinese navy and air force are seen as a direct response to the visit to Taiwan of top U.S politician Nancy Pelosi, the most senior American politician to visit in 25 years.

The Taiwan Defence Ministry said China had broken UN rules and it would counter any incursions into its territory. - Sky News. https://news.sky.com/story/chinese-m...istry-12664515

Re: China Military Drills have invaded Taiwan

Unofficially supporting Taiwan. It's part of the games played that's worked for years. Worry is now that China's leadership, having "won" Hong Kong, are now looking to win Taiwan.

They didn’t “win” Hong Kong, they were always going to get it back.

Re: China Military Drills have invaded Taiwan

China is always sabre-rattling on Taiwan, the question to me is why do America think they needed to also put on a show? Do they have intelligence that China might be seriously considering taking it?

Why were they always going to get it back? And does the same apply to Taiwan?

Just copying what it said in the Sky News link, the military drills are being conducted on Taiwan land, it’s an invasion of sorts, but not a full one. This morning China have flown 2 military drones, over Taiwan airspace, total breach of UN laws.

Re: China Military Drills have invaded Taiwan

Well normally in such sabre rattling situations it comes down to economic sanctions rather than outright war. China seems to be more about economics when dealing with the world at large these days and going full out war won't be making them money.It may settle down if everyone just deals in trade rather than tit for tat shows of military muscle.

Re: China Military Drills have invaded Taiwan

Various U.S Media outlets are reporting that U.S House of Representatives speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan was initially advised against by U.S President Joe Biden, both he and Pentagon were initially opposed to such a visit, but later prepared her visit with military protection, stating she had a right to go.
