Flashpoint in Taiwan

Hegemon USA invents enemies to wage forever wars by hot and/or other means.

Both right wings of its war party consider peace, stability and compliance with the rule of law anathema notions.

A perpetual state of war exists because of Washington’s megalomaniacal drive for global hegemony by whatever it takes to achieve its diabolical aims.

Twice before, global war “brought untold sorrow” to countless millions in harm’s way — with attribution to the UN Charter’s Preamble.

Post-WW II, the world body was established “to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war…”

The opposite of mission accomplished followed.

A perpetual state of hot wars has existed throughout most of the post-war period — hegemon USA responsible for the vast majority, including ongoing ones.

Washington needs enemies to advance its hegemonic aim for unchallenged global dominance.

Since none exist, they’re invented — notably Russia for over a century, Iran since its liberating 1979 revolution and China more recently.

Nations free from US control are on its target list for regime change — ones unwilling to sell their soul to a higher power in Washington.

The Pentagon’s empire of bases was established as platforms for endless preemptive wars on humanity.

They have nothing to do with defending the national security of a nation facing no external threats, just invented ones to justify what’s unjustifiable.

If unthinkable global war erupts, it’ll be made-in-the-USA — most likely in the Middle East, in Europe’s heartland bordering Russia, or in the South China Sea or Taiwan Strait.

Especially in the thermonuclear age with hypersonic delivery systems, what’s unthinkable is possible by accident or design.

The Middle East has been a perpetual hot spot since the treasure of its vast energy reserves was discovered in the early 20th century.

So has Russia’s border with the West since its 1917 revolution — more recently after the Obama/Biden regime replaced democratic governance in Ukraine with Nazi-infested fascist rule by coup d’etat over seven years ago.

The South China Sea, Taiwan Strait and breakaway island may be hottest of all hot spots since hegemon USA declared nonbelligerent/nonthreatening China public enemy No. One (sic).

On Thursday, China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin expressed sharp opposition to US military ties to Taiwan, saying the following:

“On the Taiwan question, the US should abide by the one-China principle and the stipulations of the three (Sino/US) joint communiques, rather than unilaterally concoct anything.”

That’s “the political foundation of China/US relations.”

“We firmly oppose official and military ties in any form between the US and the Taiwan region, and oppose US interference in China’s internal affairs.”

Yet Pentagon warships provocatively threaten China by encroaching where they don’t belong — close to its territorial waters, including by sailing through the Taiwan Strait.

Wang added that “cross-Strait reunification is an overriding historical trend and the right course, while ‘Taiwan independence’ is a retrogression leading to a dead end.”

Nations that “forget” the above reality “will come to no good end.”

“No country and no one should underestimate the resolve, the will, and the ability of the Chinese people to defend their national sovereignty and territorial integrity.” 

“Otherwise, they will suffer another defeat.”

Separately, China’s Global Times accused the US of crossing an unacceptable “red line” by deploying Pentagon forces to Taiwan, adding:

Washington and Taiwan “adopted a new strategy of constantly making provocative statements around the red line.”

“The strategic posture of the Chinese mainland in the struggle with Taiwan and the US is clear.”

Stationing of Pentagon forces in Taiwan “is one of the most dangerous triggers for a war in the Taiwan Straits.”

Taiwanese authorities that aim for independence from China “bec(ame a) fish in (a) net.”

“They (pretend) to fight desperately, but if they dare to do that, only fish will die, and no net will be broken.”

Separately, Taiwanese leader Tsai Ing-wen said she “ha(s) faith” that Washington will help defend the breakaway territory, adding:

There’s a “wide range of cooperation with the US aiming at increasing our defense capability.”

Beijing regards Taiwan as one of its provinces.

It’s been this way since Chiang Kai-shek’s Kuomintang forces were defeated and took refuge on the island in 1949.

The vast majority of world community nations recognize Taiwan as sovereign Chinese territory.

So did Washington since January 1, 1979 until the Trump and Biden regimes breached the one-China principle.

Nothing good can come from it.

While war between both countries is highly unlikely, Washington’s drive for global hegemony makes the unthinkable possible.
