Chinese military expert: Chinese military is ready to invade Taiwan

46

The naval forces of the People's Republic of China conducted major exercises in the waters of the Taiwan Strait, which separates the island of Taiwan, not controlled by the PRC, from the mainland of China. Warships were involved in the maneuvers, military aviation, marines, rocket troops and artillery.


This is reported by the Chinese edition of the Global Times.

Senior Colonel Zhang Chunhui, spokesman for the Chinese People's Liberation Army's (PLA) Eastern Theater of War Command, said the exercise was due to a "major power" misbehaving, giving false hopes to "Taiwan separatists" and thereby threatening the world and stability in the region. It is not difficult to guess that we are talking about the United States.

Colonel Chunhui said the exercise covered vast areas of the Taiwan Strait. They made it possible to work out the interaction of the PLA units.

According to an unnamed Chinese military expert, whom he shared with GT, the exercise showed the readiness of the Chinese armed forces to invade the uncontrolled island from any part of the Taiwan Strait. They showed that the PLA is capable of not only launching missile strikes, but also using naval and ground forces.

Press Secretary of the PRC Ministry of Foreign Affairs Zhao Lijiang said yesterday at a regular press conference that Taiwan is a tiny region. And no matter how much money his authorities are willing to spend on "defense against reunification" with the mainland, these efforts will be ridiculous and useless. A Chinese official likened them to the efforts of ants trying to shake a large tree.

      May China not invade! He will simply devour Taiwan over time, as Hong Kong is now eating. Yes, it will last 50 years, but the Chinese look at their civilization for 3-5 thousand years - and they do not pay attention to garbage like 50 years

      The United States has little guts to invade .. With their AUGmi they will not scare anyone in the world, but in a real conflict they can get such a bream in return, which will take a long time to wipe the bloody snot .. if they survive ..
      They can only shit with sanctions, etc.

    "Some major power" misbehaves, giving false hopes to the "separatists of Taiwan" and thereby threatening peace and stability in the region.
    The hint is much more transparent. In this regard, the Chinese are great, they don't bother much about diplomacy. It's time for our Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the RF Ministry of Defense to adopt some methods of conducting hybrid warfare.

      Your words., Yes, our government is in the ears .. And then we are used to declaring concern. Enough already to keep the tactic "How not to offend anyone and what the world community will say .." ..
      I hope China is smart enough not to be drawn into some kind of conflict, who the United States and others are dreaming of.

    I like it. The Chinese have become jealous of our experience with Crimea. The hegemon is not the same. He has many pain points. I would not be surprised that something happens in Afghanistan or the Chinese Navy will pay a friendship visit to Iran.

    China must first recognize Crimea, Donbass, Abkhazia, Ossetia, etc. Then they will receive the support of Russia in this matter.

      You don’t need to admit anything to him. They said A must say B, if you are ready to do so. We and Crimea did not ask anyone for support, only from the inhabitants of Crimea itself. So the respected Chinese themselves and Feng Shui will help you.

            Hong Kong was a former British colony at the time of its accession, without its own army and independent state apparatus. Taiwan is quite a state with a powerful army, its government considers itself the government of all China. The difference is clear.

      Crimea must first be recognized by Russian Railways, SB, VTB, VEB, AB, AF ... and many others, and then demand from the neighbors and not only the PRC. and use the Russian army for its intended purpose in solving the problem of water supply, and not build a clownish water pipeline. no one recognizes the sovereignty of Russia in Crimea before she herself

          Wwk7260 is right. The Crimean Railway is not part of Russian Railways, as Russian Railways is afraid of sanctions. Cellular operators are the same. Etc. But it is our Russian structures that treat Crimea as another state! What, then, to make a claim to others?

      Another five-year plan, well, two, and the PRC Navy will not be weaker than the US Navy.
      Well, the economy is reoriented to the domestic market.
      How long will Taiwan hold out then?

    Yes, it is clear that they are ready, everything depends on political and economic costs .. and they will be significant, because the West, led by the United States, will raise such a storm about the "bloody communist regime". Therefore, it is unlikely that China will speed up events on this topic, except that the United States will completely unravel in its economic and political pressure on China, which will prompt the latter to take decisive actions.
