Of course...

It's well known within the Chinese expat Dissent community, the playbook that the CCP is following.. sadly its not well communicated to the Western folks, and instead is often seen as Fake news... even when what was discussed year ago, turns out to be true... blow by blow... so to speak.

When called on openness, a response incorporating a threat is like a confession. These people don't appear to care if they present as foolish, psychotic or guilty. Their only interested in pushing the CCP agenda and delivering up the same old garbage. They obviously don't care at all about the near on 2 billion people living in their own country and most definitely not a fig for the rest of humanity. While revenue streams are still strong they will continue to buy influence abroad and have the ability to satisfy local support and stay in power. I think that time, distance and an apparent display of wealth have blinded a lot of individuals to the real threat that these people pose to the lives of every man, woman and child that lives on our planet.

Time for Taiwan to officually declare independence, join the UN and sign defense agreements with the rest of the world. Frankly, I would like to see a US military presence in Taiwan itself until China agrees to never use force against it.

I read the press from many nations every day and there has been mention of the current US President pushing allies to engage Taiwan more. But for Taiwan to declare independence, I think at the very least the US, UK, Canada, Australia and Japan would have to immediately recognize Taiwan and have their forces arriving on Taiwanese soil, commit naval forces to patrol the seas around Taiwan and for France and UK, commit to use their nuclear arsenals if necessary to defend Taiwan. Fat chance of any of that happening. Probably the very best Taiwan could hope for is for the US to start rotating major military units through Taiwan so there is a constant heavy US military presence there. Not US bases but US forces rotating through Taiwanese bases training the Taiwanese and being there to protect them. China would probably kick every US owned business out of China though. It would not be cost free for the US.

"We urge the United States to respect facts and science, refrain from politicising the issue...and focus on international cooperation in the fight against the pandemic," Yang said.

Oh, well, since you urge, then, ok.
