PRC Minister of Defense: Ready to fight for Taiwan


At international (including sports) venues, Taiwan appears under the name Chinese Taipei, calling itself the “Republic of China”. China is opposed to using the name "Republic of China", constantly reminding Taipei that it is part of the Chinese People's Republic.

The confrontation between Taipei and Beijing stirs up Washington.

Speaking at a security forum, Wei Fenhe said that "if someone tries to separate Taiwan from China, then the PLA (People’s Liberation Army of China) will not stand at any cost, and military measures will be taken."

In fact, Taiwan does not submit to Beijing, it has its own, powerful enough army. Military spending is about 2,1% of GDP. Taiwan has developed naval forces, which include the 22 frigate, 4 destroyer, 2 landing craft, 9 BDK and other ships and support vessels. The Air Force "Republic of China" - several tactical fighter and mixed wings, composed mainly of American-made aircraft, including the F-16.

    well, Beijing has already noted such statements, only the complete absence of combat experience of the PRC army is a negative factor that does not allow a real war to start ...

        The Chinese monkey is waiting for the enemies in Taiwan to take a break. The conclusion is simple: the Chinese will not attack Taiwan either in the near future or in the foreseeable future. China does not have any significant victories.

          In the near future, China itself will determine to whom and with whom to be friends, as it seems to me. If the United States does not start a war now, then it will take its place at the back of the universe.

    The confrontation between Taipei and Beijing stirs up Washington.
    .... And there was a period when Taiwan and the PRC were negotiating the peaceful integration of the island into the PRC, the Hong Kong version was taken as the basis ... the United States did everything to prevent this from happening ...

      The Americans are trying to achieve destabilization in the PRC through a conflict with Taiwan, a confrontation with their southern neighbors, a buildup of problems with Tibet and Xinjiang, etc. America needs a weak China, rather than continuing to grow stronger.

      And who told you that China does not "expect" a return to such negotiations? American presidents come and go, and China is 5000 years old. good They will wait another 10-20-40 years, because Time is working for China - Americans generally stand at the threshold of the "abyss" after which the words striped will not "weigh" but "sai dogs", while it is China that is getting closer and closer to its own the past state of the "Middle Empire". good So I would not pay attention to the Words from China at all, but not the Actions.

    If the Yankees clash with China, our authorities need to think about destroying American bases in Europe in order to completely squeeze Americans out of the continent

        It remains to pick up what is bad wassat China is going to dominate economically, but this is a deadly option for the United States. In the event of China's victory, Europe may still ask itself under our wing. wassat

            In case of inaction by the United States. China will become the center of the world's industry and economy. The United States will never be able to repay debts to anyone. The only way out for the United States will "decompose" into states or unleash a world war

              Usa will never be able to repay debts to anyone
              laughing And who is asking them to return? Can you imagine what will happen if, for example, the USA repays all its debt to Japan at the same time, the printing press is working properly.
              China will become the center of world industry and economy
              Maybe it will, or maybe it won't, here we are talking about Taiwan.

                If it does, it will dictate its terms to everyone on the same rights as the United States is now, and the printing press will change its registration. And there, ask do not ask for debt from the United States ...
                And nobody will ask Taiwan later

                  This is an even more vague prospect, for many reasons.
                  And there you ask, do not ask for debt from the usa
                  It’s not a fact that someone will forgive them, it’s more likely that the prices for the US state loan will simply fall, but there are not stupid people ...

                    I think in a few years we will see. And the Americans are not in vain fussing. By and large, for us, radish horseradish is not sweeter and we need to prepare for war or put up with the role of the province or state wassat

      Let us first squeeze out thieves, corrupt officials and outright traitors from the government and the State Duma, and then we will discuss where there is something to destroy in Europe. And then we are head over heels in shit, but we all play as a superpower.

    Fundamentally, the people of Taiwan must determine for themselves what they should be - as part of the PRC or as an independent state. A military solution to this issue is unproductive.

      I was in Taiwan recently. Taiwanese do not want to go to China. They don’t want to at all.

      Who is the people of Taiwan interested in? USA? China? Speech for the islands and the water area, with or without people, is the details.

    In Taiwan, agents of influence of China do not work badly. Moreover, Taiwan is beginning to lag far behind the pace of development of China. If the Americans do not fit, Taiwan itself will surrender to China over time.
