ChiComs Whines Ominously About US Military Sales to Republic of China as the Window Closes on ‘Reunification’ – Opinion

Friday’s announcement by the US Defense Security Cooperation Agency was that it approved $108,000,000 in spare parts, repair parts, as well as technical assistance from the US government to the Republic of China, also known sometimes under the name Taiwan. This money will be used to upgrade and maintain weapons, armored vehicles and vehicles of the country. Congress must approve this sale.

Unless Hunter Biden reminds the “Big Guy” that he might lose his 10 percent or the members of Congress known to be humping Chinese spies object, Congress will approve the sale.

However, the ChiComs have an unfortunate case of gritty pants. To give you a full taste of China’s response, this is a Chinese military press release.

The U.S. arms sales to China’s Taiwan region seriously violate the one-China principle and the three China-U.S. joint communiques, particularly the Aug. 17 Communique, grossly interfere in China’s internal affairs, gravely jeopardize China’s sovereignty and security interests, and severely harm relations between the two countries and their militaries. This is strongly opposed from the Chinese side.

The Taiwan question concerns China’s national sovereignty and territorial integrity and involves China’s core interests. Recently, the U.S. has repeatedly promised China the “five assurances” i.e., ”the US does not seek a new Cold War with China; it does not aim to change China’s system; the revitalization of its alliances is not targeted at China; the United States does not support ‘Taiwan independence’; and it has no intention to seek a conflict with China”, clearly stated that it does not support “Taiwan independence”. On the question of Taiwan arms sales, however, the US side is not honest and their words and actions are inconsistent.

China calls on the U.S. to immediately cancel the Taiwan arms sale plan and end all military and arms sales to Taiwan. The U.S. is responsible for destroying China-U.S. bi- and mil-tomil relations as well as the stability and peace across the Taiwan Strait.

What needs to be emphasized is that Taiwan’s future, as well as the safety, security, and well-being of Taiwan compatriots cannot be bought. The Taiwan’s Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) authorities and the ‘Taiwan independence’ separatist forces were vainly trying to rely on the U.S. to strengthen themselves, and attempted to “seek independence by force”, which is just like quenching a thirst with poison. The Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) will take all necessary measures to firmly safeguard China’s national sovereignty and territorial integrity and will resolutely thwart any form of interference by external forces and separatist plots of “Taiwan independence.”

The Republic of China is regularly opposed by Communist China to US military assistance. This objection doesn’t appear to be unusually strong. The aid provided is not controversial, certainly not on the level of President George W. Bush’s promise to sell eight diesel-electric boats (a deal that the ChiComs successfully bullied into non-existence). However, today’s situation is very different.

One year ago, the ChiComs considered conquering, sorry to say, reunification of a rebellious region as possible. Joe Biden could be an idiot sometimes, but he had a tendency to become clinically insane on other days. The virus, which was leaked in a Chinese laboratory and partially funded through grants from our NIH, had devastated the US economy. US military unleashed the dog of wokeism and effectively destroyed the need for warrior spirit to operate. Particularly, the US Navy will take the brunt of any battle with China and is quickly becoming a laughing stock. These ships look just like Soviet trawlers from Cold War. We’ve lost two destroyers to collisions that could have been avoided with competent ship-handling skills. The USS Bonhomme Richard was lost to a fire that the Navy could’ve extinguished. (Please see the link from my friend @cdrsalamanderYou will be shocked at the incompetence.

American power is at a low point under Biden. China, however, is looking at Ukraine and realizing they won’t be fighting the same war that they had hoped.

While Putin’s invasion of Ukraine has given China some hope, they’ve seen how easily Russia has been able to coerce Western Europe into continuing to fund the Russian military despite EU sanctions. They must be keenly aware of the number of pundits left and right who have been purchased or rented to push out Putin’s talking points daily.

China may have long believed the Republic of China would fall, just as Putin and his close friends imagined Ukraine would become part of Russia. In the wake of China’s rape of Hong Kong’s self-government, everyone knows that any promise to the Republic of China, like the “one country, two systems” promise made to Hong Kong, is a blatant lie. About two-thirds of ROC’s citizens thought the ChiCom government was “bad” in a poll taken shortly before Vladimir Putin began his 72-hour “special military operation.” I imagine that number is higher now, effectively taking a voluntary reunification off the table.

I would also imagine the Chinese have watched Putin’s War with growing alarm. Combining UAVs with smart munitions has altered the combat equation. China’s manned planes that fly into ROC airspace regularly are more threats than targets in a battlefield dominated by Patriot. (ROC contains at most 36 launchers). The cruise missiles have no greater utility than the aircraft. China doesn’t have a sufficient number of amphibious ships to force a beachhead on Taiwan and sustain the combat operations of that beachhead. A proliferation of portable air defense systems such as the American Stinger and British Starstreak, and anti-armor systems such as Javelin or NLAW makes lightly armed militias a threat to regular armies. A capital ship such as the The is lost. Moskva (BREAKING. Russian Flagship Sinks While Being Towed to Port) to a not-very-good Ukrainian knockoff of a crappy Russian anti-ship missile doesn’t bode well for the service life of any surface craft.

China is not ignorant that a lot of its military equipment was based on Soviet design and it has seen what this means.

In the last six months, the “reunification” of the ROC with China has gone from being assured to highly problematic. It is unlikely that Taiwanese nukes will lead to a reunification of the ROC with China in another few years.

China currently has 24 months political/military to either force unification, or to retire its goal. China is demonstrating urgency with its shipbuilding program, and suborning of Pacific islands nations (China Seeks To Buy Eight Pacific Island Nations while Joe Biden and his State Department Are Comatose). The change of government in the Philippines, which seems to be off the Biden White House’s radar, has installed a potentially China-friendly government. Continued militarization by China of artificial islands in the South China Sea is a regular occurrence.

We can’t discount China potentially seizing the hour to try and take the island of Taiwan by force. We can’t assume that just because they shouldn’t, they won’t.
