Chinese army in war rehearsal to seize islands;  What happens next?

While the US was the main cause of the Russian-Ukraine war by forcing Ukraine to join NATO, it has been reported that the US has laid the foundation for the next China-Taiwan war.

The country claims Taiwan as a part of China. But America considers it as a separate country. That is, the United States took some steps to negotiate with Taiwan’s representatives and make an agreement without consulting China. This further intensified the tensions between China and the US. In this case, when US Parliament Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan recently, China protested against this and carried out war exercises in the waters adjacent to Taiwan.

As China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has been conducting war drills with an unprecedented level of missile launches, which has caused tension, Nancy has now said that “the United States will not allow Taiwan to be isolated.” “China may have prevented Taiwanese representatives from going to other countries to talk about their rights, but China cannot isolate Taiwan by preventing US representatives from going to Taiwan,” he said in an interview with reporters in Tokyo. This has further angered China.

In this case, reports have surfaced that the Chinese army has been seriously conducting exercises to capture the island in the Taiwan Strait. This exercise is being carried out by including all the units of the army like the most advanced fighter planes. Further,
Details on when the training will end have not been released yet. According to military sources, this is the first time that China has conducted such intensive combat training.

In this case, Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen has called on international countries to ‘support democratic Taiwan’. Also, our government and military are closely monitoring China’s military exercises and military operations, and our military is ready to respond as necessary, Tsai Ing said in her Twitter post last Saturday. And the Taiwan military has said that there will be no security threat from this surveillance.

Apart from this, many people are saying that these disputes will lead to a China-US war. However, Shi Yinhong, a professor in the Department of International Relations at China’s Renmin University, refuted this view. Modern technologies that have developed are capable of intercepting communications. Hence the tendency to conflict will increase. But he said that the conflict will never take place.

It is worth noting that the US has sent its USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier to strengthen surveillance in the Western Pacific after the tension in Taiwan waters has increased.

English summary

During the four-day exercises, several batches of multiple types of warplanes attached to the Eastern Theater Command Air Force of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) conducted systematic island attack drills.
