Taiwan is sounding alarms over Chinese military drills that it says could mistakenly spark an “uncontrollable war” that would draw in countries from around the world.
“The Chinese military exercises this couple of days have been very serious,” Taiwanese Foreign Minister Joseph Wu told Fox News Sunday. “If you look at the sorties of the Chinese air force, together with the ships, they’re coming very close to Taiwan. And any accident might spark an uncontrollable war in between Taiwan and China. And if other countries are trying to intervene, it might be the start of a war of great scale.”
The comments come as large scale Chinese military drills entered their third day Monday, with the Chinese military declaring that it is “ready to fight” if Taiwan were to attempt to declare its independence from the mainland.
“The theater’s troops are ready to fight at all times and can fight at any time to resolutely smash any form of ‘Taiwan independence’ and foreign interference attempts,” the military said Monday, according to The Associated Press.
The drills China has run played out similarly to those the country conducted in August after Taiwan received a visit from then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., this time coming on the heels of a meeting between Taiwanese officials and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.
Like the previous incident in August, multiple warships and planes have reportedly crossed the median line of the Taiwan Strait, which for decades was understood by both sides as a boundary that military forces should not cross for fear of escalating to war. But China has disregarded the boundary in more recent military drills, insisting the line is “imaginary” in nature.
Wu warned that the recent drills have shown that the Chinese threat to the independently governed island have continued to increase, arguing that it will be crucial for the U.S. to continue to show support for Taiwan as a way to deter aggression from the mainland.
“If you look at the Chinese military threat against Taiwan, is being increasing, that diplomatic assault against Taiwan is also being increasing,” Wu said. “And therefore, for the United States, lawmakers or the administration to show support for Taiwan, it is very critical. And this time around, we saw a tremendous show of support coming from the U.S. Congress.”
It would never have got to this stage if the election hadn’t been stolen from DJT.

Taiwan is in the midst of a culture war. The rural vote pro Taiwan, the larger cities full of youth have been voting in the KMT party, known as the party with the best working relationship with Beijing. We need to stay out. This is just another Vietnam forming. Youth vote tends to be more open to working with Chinese, let that sink in. The Pro Taiwan president recently had to step down. KMT party is starting to win in all areas from mayors on up. Why the hell would we want to involve ourselves in another Vietnam? The news here is painting us as the hope and help for people being harmed by China. Is that the true picture?
