 Mainland military aircraft circled Taiwan for four days in a row! Former US officials: preparing for the attack on Taiwan in November


Taiwans Ministry of national defense announced that the PLAs multiple sorties around Taiwan for three days in a row. On the 21st, it announced that two PLA sub yun-8 anti submarine aircraft entered the southwest Taiwan Air Defense Identification Zone.

Taiwans Ministry of defense said the air force dispatched air patrols and emergency take-off forces to deal with the situation, broadcast the drive away and track it with air defense missiles. According to the United News Network, a US RC-135 reconnaissance plane stationed in Okinawa, Japan, took off from Kadena base in Okinawa, Japan at about 7:00 a.m., cruising the waters around Taiwan, Hong Kong and the South China Sea. Some military fans said that air communication among the three parties seems to be the norm in southwest airspace..

Zhang Yanting, former deputy commander of Taiwans air force, issued a document on the 21st, saying that the activities of PLA aircraft and warships crossing the so-called middle line of the Strait are planned and targeted actual combat exercises, with the purpose of demonstrating their strength in seizing the air control power in the Taiwan Strait. At the same time, the Taiwan Armys concept of defense operations in Taiwan and Pengzhou is still stagnant in the past thinking, resulting in the current situation that the air power of the Strait is gradually lost, the troops are overwhelmed, and the logistics combat capacity is in short supply.. Cropsy, director of the sea power center of the Hudson Institute, a us think tank, wrote that the recent series of exercises of the PLA are not only political signals, but also military preparations for an attack on Taiwan. The purpose is to subdue Taiwan before the United States and its allies respond. He predicted that the week of November 3 (US election day) may be the best time for Beijing to attack Taiwan..

In response to the PLAs actions in recent days, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said on the 21st that Taiwan is an integral part of Chinas territory and there is no so-called central line across the Strait.. The eastern theater released a video: if one day, the war starts, we will shoulder the heavy responsibility of the motherland and the hope of the people, and rush to the battlefield without hesitation. Protect the motherlands land, flowers and grass, never let the motherland and people down, please rest assured! Please rest assured!

[global network reporter Zhao Youping] on September 18, the Chinese peoples Liberation Army began to organize practical exercises near the Taiwan Strait. Seth Cropsey, director of the sea power center of the Hudson Institute, a think-tank in Washington, D.C., believes that the recent general election of the United States may fall into partisan antagonism, thus reducing the possibility of interference in the conflicts among major powers. This is dangerous for Taiwan. He thus declared that the week of November 3 may be the best time for Beijing to attack Taiwan..

Today, the island continued to hype and report the war training activities of PLA military aircraft around Taiwan. Taiwans Defense Department disclosed today (19) that PLA military aircraft once again crossed the so-called middle line of the Strait and entered Taiwans southwest airspace again in the morning, with a total of 19 j-16, J-10, J-11, H-6 and yun-8. A day earlier, Taiwans Defense Department disclosed that on the 18th, a total of 18 PLA fighters invaded Taiwan, and some of them crossed the so-called middle line of the Strait..

As for the recent situation in the Taiwan Strait, Taiwans China time news network quoted the report of China review agency as saying that cropsy, a former vice secretary of the US Navy Department and a pro Taiwan stance, wrote an article in the US Capitol Hill on the 17th to make a judgment. He said that the US election may be a dangerous signal for Taiwan and an opportunity for the mainland. The PLAs recent series of exercises are not only political signals, but also military preparations for attacks on Taiwan, with the aim of conquering Taiwan before the United States and its allies respond.

The US Capitol Hill newspaper published a possible article on cropsys analysis of the war in the Taiwan Strait: the US general election may be a dangerous signal for Taiwan, but it may be an opportunity for the mainland.

Cropsy also analyzed that Taiwan is facing an obvious disadvantage in terms of military strength across the Taiwan Strait.

About 600 fighters have been deployed in the eastern and southern theater of the PLA, while Taiwan has slightly less than 400, according to cropsy. Most of the PLAs short-range missiles are concentrated around the Taiwan Strait. The PLAs forces against Taiwan include 10 naval land combat brigades (about 7 brigades at present) and 5 air assault brigades, and nearly four times the strength of Taiwans active forces. In terms of the Navy, the PLA has 32 attack submarines against Taiwan, while Taiwan has only two; the mainland has 60 medium-sized or large-scale surface warships, while Taiwan has only 26.

But cropsy also believes that if the attack Taiwan wont win soon. In order to win, the PLA must occupy and conquer the entire island of Taiwan, and after taking over Taiwan, it will also deal with the counter offensive based on the central mountainous areas, which is predictable.

According to the report, cropsy further analyzed that if the mainland could not separate Taiwan from the rest of the Pacific, it would be impossible to win quickly. Because the PLA will be confronted with the forces of Japan, Australia and the Philippines, as well as the United States forces deployed at the forefront, if South Korea, Vietnam and India may also be involved, the conflict will expand and escalate, and the outcome of this conflict will be hard to say.

Therefore, cropsy concluded that the PLA was established to fight a short-term war, relying on long-range missiles and gradual layered defense to isolate its coastal areas. By raising the cost of intervention in the US, China has sought to solve its core strategic issues through political and military means. However, cropsy also admitted that if the United States cannot defeat the attack on Taiwan, its allies will be in danger, and this idea will also have an impact on the willingness of the United States to intervene..

Finally, kropsey said the current partisan hostility in the United States has become so strong that any outcome in November will be the focus of debate. The possibility of the US side intervening in the conflicts among big powers is much less. For Beijing, the week of November 3 may be the best time to attack.

On September 18, the eastern theater of the Chinese peoples Liberation Army (PLA) began to organize Combat Oriented drills near the Taiwan Strait. Ren Guoqiang, a spokesman for the Ministry of national defense, said on the same day that the exercise was a legitimate and necessary action taken to address the current situation in the Taiwan Strait and safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity. Taiwan is a sacred and inseparable part of Chinas territory. The Taiwan issue is purely Chinas internal affairs, and no external interference is allowed. Recently, the authorities of the United States and the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) have stepped up their ties to create frequent incidents. Whether it is to control China with Taiwan or to take advantage of foreign countries, this is wishful thinking. It is doomed to be a dead end, and those who play with fire will burn themselves. The PLA has firm will, full confidence and ability to thwart all external interference and separatist acts of Taiwan independence, and resolutely defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Air force commander Zhang Chunhui, spokesman for the eastern theater of the Chinese peoples Liberation Army, also said on the 18th that recently, the eastern theater of the Chinese peoples Liberation Army organized sea and air forces to conduct combat readiness patrols and joint sea air exercises in the Taiwan Strait to test the level of integrated joint operations of multi services and arms. The relevant actions are necessary measures to deal with the current situation in the Taiwan Strait, and are conducive to improving the ability of theater forces to safeguard national unity and territorial sovereignty and security. The theater forces resolutely perform their duties and missions, are confident and determined to defeat anyone and any force in planning and implementing Taiwan independence separatist activities in any form.
