"Can strike at Beijing and Shanghai": the press told about a possible war between China and Taiwan

Materials appeared in the world press, which spoke of the possibility of a war between Taiwan and China. Recall that Beijing considers the island of Taiwan its territory, with which the Taiwan authorities, supported by the United States of America, are not ready to agree.


The Eurasian Times published an article stating that in the event of a war between Beijing and Taipei, the latter may fall before the onslaught of the PRC "not immediately and not quickly, as many experts say." The publication indicates that the Taiwanese army has such a formidable weapon like the Yun Feng supersonic cruise missiles.

The mass production of these missiles in Taiwan began less than a year ago - in August 2019.

It is noted that the modernization of such weapons is capable of increasing the range of this cruise missile up to 2 thousand km. In this case, the capital of the PRC, Beijing, and a number of large cities in China, including Shanghai, are in the Yun Feng affected area.


From an article in the Eurasian Times:

Taiwan-China War. With each passing day increasing the likelihood of a conflict or limited war between Taiwan and China, political analysts believe Taiwan can strike Beijing and Shanghai with lethal Yun Feng missiles and disable the occupier's industrial facilities.

By "invader" the author apparently understands the People's Republic of China.

Noteworthy is the fact that the publication in this context quotes the representative of the American Enterprise Institute (Washington), who states the following:

By deploying Yun Feng missiles, Taiwan is signaling to China that the war will not be limited to the island and the surrounding waters. With this in mind, Beijing should think twice before deciding to attack Taiwan.

    . political analysts believe that Taiwan will be able to strike at Beijing and Shanghai with the help of the deadly Yun Feng missiles and will disable the industrial facilities of the invader.

    Analysts are analysts
    And what, a hundred or two missiles will force China to retreat if they have already launched an attack?
    They are not nuclear, they will eliminate the behavior from them in two months, knowing the Chinese.
    It won't help Taiwan in any way, only China will make it more angry.
    Another thing is to slow down the invasion until the States help - both militarily and politically and economically - such a calculation can be believed, and even that direct military intervention of the States is questionable.

      At one time, representatives of Taiwan sat on the UN Security Council, and many Western countries recognized them as the only legitimate Chinese leadership.
      But already in 1971, the world community began to change its point of view. Not Taipei, but Beijing became China's official representative to the UN. Since then, the number of countries that recognize the government of the Republic of China (Taiwan) has dropped to about 15. This is how the Ukrainian Jack O'Neill is.

    This conflict would instantly destroy all the political and economic gains of the PRC over the past 30 years. The Chinese understand this. Why fight? Business between two China is booming.

      First of all, where does infa come from that as much as 100% of the population will be hostile? Taiwan has very close economic ties with China, a lot of people fly back and forth from both sides .. and the island is still home to the Chinese, not some Japanese or Koreans.
      secondly, you write as if the population of Taiwan is 100 million and the territory is like that of India ... it's just a small island with 20 million population, the Chinese will quickly rein in the dissatisfied, and they will simply dispose of those incapacitated ... But the island will somehow become part of China ..
