The Chinese Communist Party has been flying warplanes and threatening to invade Taiwan in the lead up to the Taiwan national day, October 10, 2020. But unless the US firmly supports Taiwan, with clear messages from people like Mike Pompeo, Taiwan is at risk. Ian Easton, senior director at the Project 2049 Institute, is being interviewed, in the video “China Taiwan Invasion: How Likely Is It Now?” below:
China is celebrating National Day and Golden Week by sending 51 warplanes to Taiwan. The Taiwan- China relationships has been getting tenser as the Chinese military continues to provoke Taiwan. And China Taiwan is becoming a big part of US China relations as well. The China US dynamic is changing as the US seeks closer ties to Taiwan, including trade ties and the Taipei Act. And China is not happy. Not happy at all, in the video “China Sends Warplanes, Escalates Threat to Taiwan“, below:
Taiwan’s President has accused Beijing of purposefully inflaming tensions in East Asia, after Chinese warplanes crossed the sensitive median line across the narrow strait that separates the mainland and the self-governing island almost 40 times on Friday and Saturday. Taken together, the repeated incursions, which came from multiple directions and involved a combination of sophisticated fighter jets and heavy bombers, is without modern precedent and marks a significant escalation in cross-strait tensions. “What we are seeing now is not just a situation across the Taiwan Strait, but a regional situation. China’s recent military activities, especially in the past few days, clearly constitute a threat of force, which is part of their verbal attacks and military threats (against Taiwan),” President Tsai Ing-wen told reporters, in the video “Fight begins (Oct 20, 2020)-China Sends 40 Warplanes to Taiwan Strait“, below:

China has just blown up Taiwan’s peace offering, an attempt to have “meaningful dialogue” as the Chinese Communist Party ramps up military pressure and threats of invasion of Taiwan, especially in the lead up to the Taiwan National Day. China even tried to get India not to call Taiwan a country on national day. Considering the India China Standoff because of the India China border dispute, that demand didn’t probably go as the Chinese Communist Party expected, in the video “China Blows Up Taiwan’s Olive Branch, India Taiwan Lovefest!“
Taiwan’s president says she is willing to hold talks with China if they are on an equal basis. Speaking at National Day celebrations, Tsai Ing-wen said she is open to “meaningful dialogue” with Beijing and hopes regional tensions can be resolved peacefully, in the video “Taiwan to strengthen defenses as China tensions escalate“, below:
If tension continues between China-Taiwan and USA, it will not be good for people in China, Taiwan, USA, or rest of the world. Creative diplomacy is needed to reduce the tension. Year 2020 has been a difficult year for every one. It is time to calm down and think in terms of what is best for our planet earth. Our global economy demands that this be a global issue.
