Economic Destabilization – How China Prepares For American & Japanese Military Interference In Taiwan Conflict

A week ago, U.S. President Joe Biden said he would prevent China from passing the United States to become the most powerful country in the world. It doesn’t matter that history has proven that China had never invaded or colonized other countries or territories, unlike the European colonialism or the Japanese imperialism. The U.S. is very worried about the Chinese for a reason.


While China does not have any plan to become a military superpower like the U.S., it sure does want to become an economic powerhouse. But becoming a nation wealthier than the U.S. does not necessarily means it will automatically become a military superpower. But the U.S. does not care. It wants to keep its trophy as the only military and economic superpower in the world – forever.


Biden claimed that after spending hours with Xi Jinping when he was vice-president under former President Barack Obama, he believed the Chinese President believed autocracy – not democracy – held the key to the future. And because China’s ideology and belief is different from that of the United States, Biden said he would do everything in his power to undermine China.

Therefore, Mr Biden said he would work with U.S. allies to hold China accountable for its violation of human rights in Taiwan, Hong Kong, the South China Sea, and its treatment of the Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang province. The president’s statements could be nothing but rhetoric. But Beijing certainly takes Biden’s remarks seriously, especially in the matter concerning Taiwan.


There’s nothing the U.S. can do about Hong Kong and Xinjiang. However, Taiwan is a different kettle of fish. Taiwan is so critical to China not only because a failure to prevent the island from going independent will lead to the overthrowing of President Xi Jinping, but also the legitimacy of the Chinese Communist Party as the government of the nation will be jeopardized.


For decades, China has been “very patient” with Taiwan. As long as Taipei does not go independent, Beijing can live with the screams of democracy there. In the same breath, Taipei knew about the red line it cannot cross. But the rise of China as the world’s second largest economy, and soon to overtake the U.S. as the No. 1, could potentially change the status quo.

The U.S. jealousy of China’s rapid economic growth and achievements in the past few years, including in the area of AI (artificial intelligence) and 5G, has already sparked disputes between both nations. While Donald Trump had started a trade war using unfair trade practices as justification, Joe Biden is using human rights violations as an excuse to potentially start a new war with China.


And that war could start with a conflict in the Taiwan Strait. Beijing has every reason to worry that Biden’s pledge to stop China from passing the U.S. to become the most powerful country in the world could send a wrong signal to Taiwan. What is the better way to start a military conflict than to encourage Taipei to officially declare independence and in the process destabilize economy in the region?


But China appears to be ready, not only to face the American, but also the Japanese military interference in the event Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen is somehow led to believe she could declare independence because the U.S. will defend the island. Since early this year, China has been sending more warplanes – fighter jets and bombers – to circle the Taiwan.

This week alone, the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) sent at least 11 warplanes, including 2 reconnaissance planes into Taiwan’s Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ). It was by design that the Chinese warplanes moved in a pincer formation in the south, east and west of Taiwan during the exercise. It was to send a political message to Taipei and Washington.


It was the seventeenth day in the month of March that Chinese aircraft had entered the ADIZ to express Beijing’s displeasure over a visit to Taiwan by U.S. Ambassador John Hennessey-Niland to Palau. In fact, the Chinese incursions were so overwhelming that on Monday, the Taiwanese air force said it no longer will scramble jets to intercept every PLA incursion.


Interestingly, besides launching multiple exercises to surround the island of Taiwan from both east and west, the Chinese PLA also sent another group of warplanes crossed the Miyako Strait to reach Taiwan’s eastern side. Obviously, it was preparations to take into consideration the possibility of the U.S. and Japan interventions when Taiwan conflict exploded.

China wanted to show it can and will surround Taiwan from all possible directions, if military conflict started in the region. Experts said PLA exercises to the east of Taiwan mean the Chinese forces can strike not only military facilities on the east of the island, but also lock down the island entirely from possible interventions by U.S. and Japanese forces.


Japan’s Ministry of Defence revealed that Chinese Type 055 guided missile destroyer Nanchang (China’s most advanced 10,000-ton destroyer), Type 052D guided missile destroyer Chengdu and the Type 054A guided missile frigate Daqing left the Sea of Japan from the Tsushima Strait and headed toward the East China Sea on Thursday, after entering the Sea of Japan a week earlier.


The military strategy was to suppress or block the potential American and Japanese reinforcements coming from Guam and the Ryukyu Islands through the Miyako Strait east of Taiwan and through the Bashi, Balintang, and Babuyan channels southwest of Taiwan. At the same time, it would prevent Taiwan’s forces from escaping during a war.

Last year, the People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) Xi’an H-6 strategic bombers deliberately flew from the East China Sea and through the Miyako Strait between the Japanese islands of Okinawa and Miyakojima – suggesting that Beijing could dynamically change its tactic to even attack Japan to disrupt or distract its reinforcement to Taiwan.


On 15 April 2019, the PLAAF conducted a long-range military drill involving four Xian H-6K bombers, a Shaanxi KJ-500 airborne early warning and control (AWAC) aircraft, a Shaanxi Y-9JB (GX-8) electronic warfare and surveillance plane, as well as Su-30 and J-11 fighter jets near Taiwan and Japan. In the event of a conflict with Taiwan or Japan, the Miyako Strait and Bashi Channel would be critical chokepoints.


Heck, the Chinese had even simulated a strike against the USS Theodore Roosevelt carrier strike group in January this year, prompting the U.S. military to condemn such exercise. The exercise saw a large number of warplanes, including nuclear-capable H-6K bombers and fighter jets flew into the southwest corner of Taiwan’s Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ).

China DF-26 Ballistic Missile – Guam Killer

On 26 August 2020, as tensions between both nations escalated, China launched two types of missiles in the disputed region. One type of the missiles – DF-26B – was launched from the northwestern province of Qinghai, while the other – DF-21D – was fired from Zhejiang province in the east. Both were fired into an area between the Hainan province and the Paracel Islands.


While DF-21D (Dong-Feng 21 variant) has a range of 1,500-km, the DF-26B is capable of reaching 4,000-km. The latest DF-21D is believed to be the world’s first anti-ship ballistic missile (ASBM) – especially upgraded by China to enhance its ability to prevent or target U.S. aircraft carriers from operating in the Taiwan Straits, in case of an invasion to forcefully take over the island.


But besides being an “aircraft carrier killer”, the Dong-Feng 26 is also known as the “Guam Express” or “Guam Killer” – China’s first conventionally-armed ballistic missile capable of reaching Guam, the U.S. strategic military base that has about 7,000 U.S. military personnel stationed there. Of course, if it could hit Guam, it could hit other U.S. facilities in Darwin and Diego Garcia.

The Chinese military’s pincer formation this Monday was Beijing’s way of showing it is capable of isolating Taiwan if the U.S. and Japan plan to assist Taipei. The Chinese warplane flying pattern of going through the Miyako Strait in order to reach eastern Taiwan instead of using the Bashi Channel, on the other hand, shows China can surround the Japanese islands too.


A declassified document released in the final days of the Trump administration revealed Washington’s intent and resolves to defend Taiwan from Beijing in the event of an emergency. Biden might or might not defend the island. It could be gimmicks all along to sell more weapons to both Taiwan and Japan. But one thing is certain – China is willing to go to war rather than lose Taiwan”, a self-ruled island that Beijing claims as its own.

“. It doesn’t matter that history has proven that China had never invaded or colonized other countries or territories…”


It does not really matter to China what the US and Japan do militarily over Taiwan. Japan which has at the start of US doing the toothless kaypoh has been utterly half-hearted going along with anything to do against China, especially when it has to be a pawn and likely cannon-fodder for the US. The Japanese consul in Shanghai, a scholar in East Asian history has most recently said Japan and China should be friends, a position that has first to be approved by his bosses in Tokyo.

South Korea has long said it doesn’t want to piss off China, and ASEAN nations basically do not want to see any conflict where being used by the US provides more ills than benefit. What’s more, our kris-waving Hishammuddin may start waving his extra-long Made in China dagger if his Chinese brother gets in a fight.

Australia has yet to create a missile force, the angmoh Eight-Power Alliance military will do nothing for the Yanks than posture like an almost-power has-been sorry lot, all noise and chest-thumping but no bite. The majority of the world’s nations are with China, and Russia looks increasingly like a military partner with China.

Then we have the biggest thumbing of the nose to the US – or the biggest laugh at the expense of the bankrupt US, Taiwan has long since signalled it wants to be the first to give up or bugger off the moment China attacks. Surveys have long shown the islanders not liking the idea of any fight with China. Many respondents have said the moment the Chinese set foot on Taiwan, they will shout “Long Live Our Motherland!”

The old Taiwanese generals mostly say Taiwan shouldn’t fight, the guestimate is if China goes the whole GMO hog in a fight, Taiwanese military will be wiped out in three days. Youths have said they won’t fight, they can’t even leave the island as even those ex-conscripts have to remain. All the military exercises conducted have been disastrous, planes dropping outa sky, deaths, equipment not ready, badly-maintained, soldiers not in shape and already saying they’ll capitulate… China has repeatedly shown it controls the skies and the seas, without even a fight Taiwan can be choked to death.

What’s more devastating even with Yank and Ajinomoto help – which the Taiwanese all know will not happen, they have repeatedly said so, the island Jinmen nearest to China has already said they want to secede, go with the Mainland in the event of war. Without Jinmen, the greater part of Taiwan can only fight jerking off across the strait at China.

Taiwanese media has no respect for its own gomen and always slagging off Granny Tsai and her coterie. Taiwanese economy is totally dependent on China, the Taiwanese all know on which side their beef noodle is buttered, the political rhetoric of the Taiwan regime is treated as a big joke and made a big joke and a big meal of by their media.

All Taiwanese know China will spring the biggest surprise if a war takes place, China has no end of that, even in recent times, long implanted spies are still being weeded out, Taiwan is paranoid with suspicion of everyone, no way to fight any war. A couple decades ago, the wife of a top-ranking Chinese military officer was found to be a Mainland spy for many decades!

But then you can’t fight any war if your folks long said they don’t want to fight, and most of all, precious few want to die for the Yanks or the Japs even if they may not like the Mainlanders. Even many Yanks say they won’t fight for Yankland over Taiwan, some actually know and say the law is not on their side!

Regardless, most Taiwanese like the Mainland, the salaries there are better and fatter than Taiwanese ones, in any war involving any Chinese, money always wins!

So fcuk the Yanks and fcuk the Japs, Chinese money talks.

And talks loud!


“veritas”, Tibet has been Chinese territory tens of centuries longer than either Sarawak or Sabah have been annexed parts for the bogus colonial creation of “Malaysia”.

The Brit colonialists carved Sarawak and Sabah for the proxy appropriation and control of their Malayan monkey stooges. the useless and thieving monkeys plundered and fcuked up these independent territories or parts of Kalimantan and Mindanao.

And are still plundering and fcuking up these territories.
