is it testing Taiwan or testing USA ? That is more important question.

Pathetic posturing from the Chinese. It's a tantrum and really shows how weak and ineffective the Chinese government policy towards Taiwan is.

It seems like CCP version of special military operation

Such blockade will only work if Taiwan doesn’t have missile defense capabilities or such capabilities destroyed.
Otherwise, those ships are practically sitting ducks. Just ask Putin.

West Taiwan needs to act right. East Taiwan is much more honorable and diplomatic.

Give Taiwan what it needs to defend itself and deter such nonsense.

Even China’s iron ally Russia has an idiom “China's final warning" (Russian: последнее китайское предупреждение). That’s fun

I seriously think CCP would start their invasion during one of these drills as a cover.

After Taiwan, who know what they will go after next. One thing for sure is, US is last on the list.

The problem with china and taiwan isn’t communism or democracy but traditional chinese mentality .

Traditional chinese mentality has resulted in chinese people suffering 3 main problems which is being superficial, overtly materialistic and the most important flaw which is pragmatism to the point of stupidity .

Because of being overtly pragmatic, chinese people do not play devils advocate and adopt a progressive mindset to understand and question why should something be done or why shouldn’t it be done .

What sort of benefit would prc obtained in starting a war with taiwan other than obeying and kawtowing to some middle age winnie the pooh which frankly should focus on other issues in PRC?

Young chinese folks whether in china or beyond have, should and are currently focusing on things that matter . In fact, the young folks in china have done so much for PRC and the world that it frankly puts many country in the world to shame, even the USA.

If young leaders in the PRC make this paradigm shift in their mindset, I would mostly likely see Taiwan unifying politically with the PRC in the future willingly.
