I hope the PLA is not using the Pelosi visit as perfect excuse for non stop drills expanding in scopes and areas.

Maybe they should do more yoga or trink more tea to relax.

What are you trying to imply?

Taiwan is in the East China Sea, not in the South China Sea. The exercise area is not close to Vietnam.

What you mean? Vietnam airlines diverting traffic around Taiwan airspace. So ship traffics inbound and outbound Taiwan. How long will you want to do shooting drills?
But seriously that’s the least concern. Should a war break out the US military jump in, every country will bear the brunt.

China Raises Tensions As It Continues Military Drills Around Taiwan Beyond Sunday’s Deadline​

Forbes Staff

Aug 8, 2022,04:51am EDT

China’s unprecedented military drill surrounding Taiwan will continue—despite originally being scheduled to end on Sunday—Beijing announced on Monday, in a move that is likely to further raise tensions in the region.

In an official statement, the Eastern Theater command of the Chinese military said the extended exercises will now focus on “anti-submarine and sea assault operations.”

The nature of Monday’s drills will once again raise fears that the Chinese military is using the exercise as a potential dress rehearsal for a full-fledged invasion of Taiwan.

While the exact location of the current drill has not been specified, since Tuesday China has been carrying out live firing exercises enveloping Taiwan on all sides.

The continuing exercises are also likely to further disrupt all air traffic and shipping routes in the area.

In response to China’s actions, the Taiwanese military will carry out live-fire drills on the island’s southernmost county on Tuesday and Thursday, the island’s Central News Agency reported.

Taiwan’s military also plans to carry out its annual exercise on September 5, which will include attack helicopters, combat vehicles, armored vehicles and snipers.

66. That is the number of Chinese military aircraft detected by Taiwan’s military forces on Sunday, the island’s Ministry of National Defense tweeted. Fourteen navy vessels were also spotted by the MoND.

Taiwan’s representative to the U.S. Bi-khim Hsiao told CBS News’ Face the Nation on Sunday: “There's no reason for them [China]

DPP is infiltrated by people of Japanese blood with false Chinese names. These people don't see eye-to-eye with China, don't have the same aspirations as the motherland.

With this kind of government, it NOT possible to reunite peacefully with Taiwan.

--------

BTW, I kept posting this in the other threads... I think this is the purpose for the extension of military drills:

USA is attention whore. China says they're the star of this show. USA says me too!

If we let USA profit even a slight bit by showing their military presence during this present Taiwan fisaco, then everything China did up to now becomes a farce. USA purpose to sail (or plan to) their carrier into Taiwan Straight not to show military support for Taiwan but to steal back the limelight coz they know they fuked up bad by sending Pelosi in the first place.

China saw thru this trick now stalling for time by extending military exercise, cutting off military communication, etc... Cheap and easy technique to stall for time because then nobody gives a fuk if US does the Taiwan passage 1 or 2 months from now! Like the stage play is over and audience leaving (state members of the UN observing the actions in this hot spot) then USA shows up to mostly empty stadium and cheered by crickets chirping. A day late and a buck short... is the result China wants to give USN carrier group!

Basically, how to deal with attention whore USA: By not giving him any attention by denying him access and info into the current hot zone!

Biden 'concerned' as China extends military drills around Taiwan​

By Sarah Wu
and Martin Quin Pollard

August 8, 2022

TAIPEI, Aug 8 (Reuters) - China's military announced fresh military drills in the seas and airspace around Taiwan on Monday, a day after the scheduled end of its largest ever exercises to protest against last week's visit to the island by U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

China's Eastern Theatre Command said it would conduct joint drills focusing on anti-submarine and sea assault operations - confirming the fears of some security analysts and diplomats that Beijing would continue to maintain pressure on Taiwan's defences.

U.S. President Joe Biden, in his first public comments on Taiwan since Pelosi's visit, said he was not worried about Taiwan but was concerned about China's actions in the region.

"I'm concerned they are moving as much as they are," Biden told reporters in Delaware. "But I don't think they're going to do anything more than they are."

Pelosi's visit infuriated China, which responded with test launches of ballistic missiles over Taipei for the first time, as well as ditching some lines of dialogue with Washington.

The duration and precise location of the latest drills is not yet known, but Taiwan has already eased flight restrictions near the six earlier Chinese exercise areas surrounding the island.
