As we have witness in the last several months of this year of Russia’s incursion into Ukraine with war, China now is on the move to do the same with reclaiming Taiwan as part of their own and has vowed to take it either peacefully or by force. Why this is problematic is because with conflicts already on the rise in several other countries around the globe, an invasion by China’s military to take over a democratic self Governed country poses to send the world further into Chaos.
President Xi, or as the Chinese like to refer to him as “Chairman Xi” gave his address to the Peoples Republic of China 20th meeting of congress of the communist party and stated this:
“Resolving the Taiwan question is a matter for the Chinese, a matter that must be resolved by the Chinese,” Xi told some 2,300 party delegates on Sunday.
“We will continue to strive for peaceful reunification with the greatest sincerity and the utmost effort, but we will never promise to renounce the use of force, and we reserve the option of taking all measures necessary,” he warned.
China’s methods will continue with ones of coercion until at some point they will try the element of surprise. China is not stupid, for they know taking Taiwan by force would also mean ending any relationship with the west thus would also mean suicide on their part.
