Prelude to Conflict: Asia, June 2


Prelude To Conflict

Prelude To Conflict

China and the West want China and the West to know that they are in a prelude to war. Here are a few reasons why from recently…

An international case seems to be developing, not only against China, but also casting doubt on the current ruling regime in Taiwan:

Amnesty says [Taiwan] nation must still improve human rights – Taipei Times

…recent police use of water cannons against peaceful protestors, Amnesty International condemns, similarities of Taiwan’s Ma to a Mussolini in the Pacific

Amnesty International Condemns ‘Cruel Outrage’ of Taiwan’s Death Row – UCA

…a trend in Human Rights cases against Taiwan, a US ally, immediately after refusing to disclose the contents of their secret talks with China

 New Taipei City to Introduce Guardian Angels in Subway – KMT

…Taiwan’s ruling political party announces they are now “protecting” Taipei subways with “Guardian Angel” police… thus increasing police presence… the same police that Amnesty International has condemned in recent days.

PRC United Front officials ‘pose security threat’ – Taipei Times

…The KMT in Taiwan is not only increasing their police presence, they are also allowing Chinese Communists to increase their presence inside Taiwan.

Majority view cross-strait ties as ‘state-to-state’: poll – Taipei Times

…China’s main concern is not with another country that claims to own all of China—so long as the claim includes EVERYTHING that Beijing also claims. But, if Taiwan or Mongolia claim to be separate countries from China, even though they want peace, Beijing will be outraged. This idea is known as the “one China policy” and counter-intuitive to Western thinking. In the minds of Chinese Communists, independence is more dangerous than claiming 100% of their territorial claims. This poll indicates that the Taiwan public rejects Beijing’s “one China policy” and already views Taiwan as an independent state. That alone could provoke China to launch any of their 2,000 missiles aimed at Taiwan—aimed at Taiwan not because Taiwan is any military threat, but “independence” is viewed by Beijing as a greater threat. That could start a conflict in the Pacific and this newspaper is not afraid to publish this controversial truth.
