Cadence Column: Asia, December 3, 2018


Taiwan President Tsai Ing-Wen apologizing after a mid-term defeat at the provincial level will not demonstrate strength on her part, but she shows respect and stability in maintaining her appointees and policy toward China. Having not stood her ground on information about proposal that would have set Taiwan’s team name at the Olympics in Japan … Continue reading

A proxy war after The Pentagon names China as top threat?


It could mean a proxy war when the Pentagon says they will be “forcing them (the competitors China and Russia) to confront conflict under adverse conditions”. Where may it be? “Inter-state strategic competition, not terrorism, is now the primary concern in the U.S. national security”, announced by the United States Defense Secretary James N. Mattis … Continue reading

America planning big new arms sales to Taiwan despite China’s concerns


The Trump administration is crafting a big new arms package for Taiwan that could include advanced rocket systems and anti-ship missiles to defend against China, U.S. officials said, a deal sure to anger Beijing. The package is expected to be significantly larger than one that was shelved at the end of the Obama administration, the … Continue reading

China hypocritically attacks US over human rights violations


China lashed out at the United States for its “terrible human rights problems” in a report on Thursday, adding to recent international criticism of Washington on issues ranging from violence inflicted on minorities to U.S. immigration policies. The U.S. State Department‘s annual report on rights in nearly 200 countries last week accused China of torture, … Continue reading

China upset at name change of de facto Japan embassy to include name “Taiwan”


China expressed dissatisfaction on Wednesday after Japan‘s de facto embassy in self-ruled Taiwan, which Beijing considers a breakaway province, said it would change its name to include the word Taiwan. Japan, like most countries in the world, maintains only informal relations with Taiwan while it has diplomatic ties with Beijing. From Jan. 1, the Interchange … Continue reading

Cadence Column: Asia, December 26, 2016


Beijing continues rattling prototype sabers over Trump’s talk and his walk. The Trump cabinet will be packed with savvy Secretaries who are wise to bad deals. People who want good deals will be supportive. People who want bad deals will object. Everyone has made his own position clear. Now, it’s time to see whose ideas … Continue reading

China says Trump must toe line on Taiwan


U.S. President-elect Donald Trump will face “serious” consequences should he attempt to revise U.S. policy toward Taiwan, a state newspaper China Daily said. The editorial welcomed Trump’s plan to nominate Iowa Governor Terry Branstad as ambassador to Beijing, who’s known Chinese President Xi Jinping for almost three decades and was described by the country’s foreign … Continue reading

Cadence Column: Asia, December 5, 2016


A negative response in the wake of President-Elect Trump’s phone call with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-Wen (蔡英文) could backfire. Such an educational, peaceful, and friendly phone call—clearing up an enormous misconception and even security concerns—deserves nothing less than praise. One harmless, little phone call encouraged millions of people in Asia to relax. Only an aggressor … Continue reading

We see the psychology of Chinese cultural leadership on full display. China stopped communicating with Taiwan. An accidental firing of a live missile, killing one and injuring two, on a parked Taiwanese naval corvette was judged to indicate a “loose screw” in Taiwan’s military leadership. The KMT-Nationalists from Mainland China have been managing Taiwan’s military … Continue reading

Taiwanese warship accidentally fires missile towards China


A Taiwanese warship has mistakenly launched a supersonic “aircraft carrier killer” missile towards China, the navy said, as ties between the island and its once bitter rival deteriorate. The domestically developed Hsiung-feng III missile flew about 45 miles before plunging into waters off Penghu, a Taiwanese-administered island group in the Taiwan Strait. The Taiwanese navy … Continue reading

Cadence of Conflict: Asia, May 30, 2016


China has reportedly announced that it has been outdone by US technology. This implication came from the statement that it can only respond to the US “freedom of navigation” exercises by sending nuclear subs to the South China Sea. While some claim that the reports from Beijing are “exaggerated”, either scenario shows Beijing revealing its … Continue reading

Cadence of Conflict: Asia, May 23, 2016


Taiwan has a new president. Security is a hot topic. New leaders bring change. Change can be unstable. As a general rule, web and program developers don’t like software “updates” because they can cause other dependent software to crash. In general, admirals and generals don’t like map updates either, and for good reason. Constantly changing … Continue reading

Cadence of Conflict: Asia, November 9, 2015


The two presidents of the two governments of China met in Singapore. The exiled government was protested on the island where it remains in exile. It was a wild week. Taiwan’s president, Ma, defended the importance of dialog while nearly every branch of his government clashed with protests. The meeting comes at the brink of … Continue reading

Cadence of Conflict: Asia, September 21, 2015


China mostly talked this week. And they plan to talk more next week with Obama about Taiwan’s elections. Taiwan now allows 5,000 new Chinese visitors per day and China will give Taiwanese electronic passes in their visits. This raises questions about why China wants so many people in Taiwan while making Taiwanese in China easier … Continue reading

Cadence of Conflict: Asia, August 24, 2015


North Korea does it’s annual late summer saber-rattling while the US and South Korea run their annual pre-autumn laps on the peninsula. Everyone’s in an uproar and “this time” it could be dangerous—again. Back to school. China’s market slows while it’s naval activity rises. Chinese business is no longer the talk of town, though banking … Continue reading

Cadence of Conflict: Asia, June 8, 2015


A week of political campaigns. Imagine if John McCain were under review to be kicked out of the Republican Party for not supporting big money enough, there was no strong Republican Candidate, Hillary was already the Democratic nominee, and McCain said, “If the RNC orders me to, it would be my duty to run for … Continue reading
