Beijing has launched military exercises near the Taiwan Strait. The drills coincide with a high-level summit in Taipei attended by a senior US official, which China has labeled as a provocation.

China’s Defense Ministry said on Friday that the People’s Liberation Army’s eastern theater command was carrying our exercises in the area, but did not provide details about the operation.
A spokesman for the ministry, Ren Guoqiang, described the drills as “reasonable action” aimed at “protecting national sovereignty and territorial integrity.”
Referring to US Undersecretary for Economic Affairs Keith Krach’s visit to Taiwan, Ren claimed that Washington and Taipei are guilty of “collusion” and “frequently creating disturbances.” He added that it would be unwise to attempt to “use Taiwan to control China,” warning that “those who play with fire will get burnt.”
Krach is slated to meet with Taiwan’s president, Tsai Ing-wen, on Friday. This visit follows a trip last month by US Health Secretary Alex Azar, the highest-level US official to come to the island in four decades.

Local media reported that Taiwan Air Force jets were scrambled more than a dozen times in the early hours of Friday, allegedly to counter maneuvers being carried out by Chinese fighters.

Washington’s growing ties with Taiwan, which Beijing claims sovereignty over, has been a major contributing factor to the deterioration of US-China relations. Washington does not have official diplomatic ties with the island, but continues to honor the 1979 Taiwan Relations Act to help Taiwan defend itself, and serves as Taiwan’s primary arms supplier.


China has repeatedly urged Washington to abandon its political and military ambitions in the region, warning that the United States’ hostile stance could lead to catastrophe.

Great development. Just as the case in HK, US action will only force Beijing's hand in finally taking decisive actions where it has been reluctant to commit before. This is far more important than India border skirmish.

There will probably be war breaking out in late October. The Trump administration is planning a Tonkin incident to start war with China in order to mobilize Asia and the world to effectively shut off relations with China. It may not be a full scale war but enough to mobilize the world against China. This is why Terry Brandstadt is being withdrawn from Beijing in October. Just watch.

The rest world is not so stupid to follow US plan. They will do business with China even if China reunify Taiwan because they know who is the one that raised the tension.

On the contary, if US failed to prevent China's Strait War, the world will doubt US dominance in military. And in turn doubt US dollar's credibility. It's the biggest strategy disaster for US.

I think you are overestimating China's appeal. China is surrounded by enemies. Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam, India, Australia, the Philippines. Even the neutral countries like Thailand and Singapore and S Korea will join the US reluctantly.

China has no allies that will help her while the US has China encircled. Also, China doesn't have the capability to take Taiwan. It will be humiliated if it tries to. Everyone knows this.

You overestimate US influence. Except US vassel country Japan, no other China's neighbour dare to join in the war against China. Even India will stay put by then. Australia is not China's neighbour. The Strait War will be ended very fast. The five eyes countries may issue some punishments to China in diplomatic and economic ways as long as they can bear huge self damage. EU may also have some short term reactions. That's all.

China's navy is still very weak compared to the US. China can easily be blockaded as the US has global power projection. The US can fire into Chinese cities from its navy and prevent China from taking Taiwan. Taiwan has a formidable army of its own.

Any war will lead to disastrous results for China's long term development and it will find itself increasingly isolated and condemned by the West and its own neighbors. The US is a world away so it will not be affected much by the war.

China should stop interfering in internal matters of Taiwan. And stop trying to boss around. Keep your ambitions & dreams in check. You dont have the mettle to be a world leader. You are more like a stubborn kid who will fight with everyone for candy.

You are talking about WW2 war. Not today's war. We have a weapon called "missile". They can be launched from ships and land. If the targets are close to China's coast, thousands short range missiles can be used to destory US fleet.

Let alone China's fighter planes can take off from land bases, which is a big advantage than those planes from aircraft carriers

Forget it, China really has no answer to US fleet of hundreds of F-22s and F-35s.

It's small fleet of J-20s are outmatched many times over.

Chinese can bark but cannot bite yet.

where will these 100s of F22s and F35s fly from? they cant land on air so where??? they will either be too far from China to bomb china and still have fuel to return, or they will be based close, like in SK or Japan, and China can hit them on their runways..so how??

It's small fleet of J-20s are outmatched many times over.
...on paper...meanwhile the US you think is so strong doesnt even have money to fight a war... think logistically bro!

Is that what you think of when you know H-6 bombers are in Ladakh now?

Russia took over Crimea.
China took over the Scarborough Shoal.
China took the South China Sea and militarised the islands.
Iran bombed US bases.
North Korea still fires missiles.
Assad still in charge in Syria.
Maduro still in charge in Venezuela.
Turkey bought the S-400.

Muricans are still barking but cannot bite.

The Muricans killed million innocent Muslims in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan drone strikes yet you still worship the Muricans.

US is committed to the defence of Taiwan and China cannot do anything about it.

They are arming Taiwan to the teeth and will provide the necessary backup to defeat any Chinese invasion.

Like I say, China can bark but has no bite.
