China-Taiwan War, As China steps up military activities, Taiwan is building up resistance in the hopes of deterring conflict and defending itself. Tension ratcheted up in August when White House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited the Taiwan island, which China claimed to be a part of its territory to express anger over Nancy Pelosi’s visit, the Chinese began wide-ranging live fire exercise, deployed its two aircraft carriers, an amphibious assault ship and repeatedly sent military aircraft across the Taiwan Strait. China issues fresh warnings in Taiwan.
The spokesperson of the Chinese Air Force Shen Jinke said that “ China will resolutely safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity” In addition spokesperson also said that the Chinese Air Force is completely capable of encircling Taiwan.
Taiwan is conducting its largest-ever military drills which simulate the repulsion of an invading force it’s a scenario based on the increased military threat from China in recent years. Beijing sees Taiwan as part of its territory and hasn’t ruled out the use of force to reunify it with the mainland and the ongoing war in Ukraine.
China-Taiwan War, The light of the world in Ukraine has served as a wake-up call for Taiwan over the threat from China. This year in the first part of August, China conducted a missile test, on large-scale sea exercises cyber attacks disinformation campaigns, and economic coercion. All these signs indicate the future invasion of Taiwan.
There`s almost no prospect for peaceful politically driven unification between China and Taiwan as it now stands because Beijing is completely unwilling to adopt a different approach that takes into account the interest of the Ukraine.
One proposal from Beijing has been sent to Taiwan called “ one country, two systems” a model which is used in Hong Kong, according to this model Chinese sovereignty is recognized but a semi-autonomous aspect of local governance is kept in place.
China-Taiwan War, One country, two system model has been rejected by Taiwan political parties”. this rejection leaves China with the option of coercion, which Beijing has been imposing through economic, diplomatic, and military means
At the same time, Beijing is increasing its pressure on Taipei, including ramping up military pressure or exerting a greater economic crisis.
China-Taiwan War, Thus there is no peaceful resolution on the table right now, and as a result, it will most probably result in a military conflict across the Taiwan Strait and there are more chances that China will invade Taiwan due to its strategic patience policy.
