Russian media: Trumps latest arms sales to Taiwan may trigger war, which is only one Mars away from the war (source: original)

On the 21st, the U.S. government conducted a notification to Congress procedure on three arms sales cases to Taiwan, including the hippocampus system, which is expected to take effect in one month. Among them, the most sensitive one is 135 agm-84h (slam-er) extended by harpoon missile air launched version.

Previously, Taiwan media reported that the extended range land attack missile not only can carry out attack tasks from a long distance, but also has a receiving antenna which can eliminate interference sources, so as to achieve anti-jamming and high-precision navigation capability. In addition, the weapon data link network (wdln) is integrated in the control system, which can supplement the deficiency of the Taiwan Armys Cross horizon reconnaissance and search capability. However, the missile has no tracking characteristics, so its penetration is poor.

Comprehensive reports from Taiwan media

Taiwan expert: U.S. presidential election is over

Recently, the South China Morning Post disclosed that the mainland is stepping up its combat readiness in the southeast coastal areas, including the deployment of upgraded dongfeng-17 missiles, etc., while the peoples daily rarely published dont say that you dont know what youre saying, which has aroused outside discussion.

First of all, the outside world confused the routine actions and targeted actions in mainland Chinas military security actions, thus resulting in over interpretation and worry. The return of the military charter flights in Rudongs Sha Tai islands seems to be based on the two interpretations of Taiwan and Hong Kong. If the routine flights to Dongsha in Xiaogang on the 22nd are back to normal, the last one can be regarded as a special case, otherwise serious discussion is needed.

Even the most worried us has stepped on the brakes. Secretary Pompeio has repeatedly indicated that the US side recognizes that Taiwan is a Sino US conflict and does not want to start fighting with Taiwan on the Chinese mainland. Although American scholars have debated whether the Taiwan policy should be kept vague, it is a consensus of both sides to avoid the United States getting involved in the Taiwan Strait war.

Another consideration is based on the fact that the United States may encounter a more treacherous 80 days of terror after the general election. Judging from the current election situation, the United States may fall into a chaotic detention period from the election day on November 3 to the inauguration day on January 20 next year. If Biden wins, trump will never give up, and the move before leaving office will be even more difficult to predict. If trump is re elected, he will advocate the effectiveness of Anti China card and make the US friends and Taiwan forces more excited. Sichuan Cai telephone has written a surprise 4 years ago. Is there any new plot this year?

Under the above circumstances, Beijing may think that no matter who wins the US election, the Sino US relations, the situation in the Taiwan Strait and the South China Sea from the election to the inauguration are still full of risks, which is the most important reason why the mainland is waiting in the southeast coast.
