Knowing the Taiwanese. This will just make them stronger and more determined to resist China.

China and the ccp often worry me because of how childish, or rather perhaps totally deluded, so much of what they put out publically is.

Could they anchor propeller Fowlers to the ocean floor and release them remotely during future incidents?

Google “the guardian Lai inauguration speech “
“Lai is known to have stronger views on Taiwan independence than Tsai, but has toned down his position in recent years and pledged to continue Tsai’s more moderate policy path of protecting the status quo, maintaining Taiwan’ sovereignty, and deterring Chinese aggression.”

Even if the inauguration speech was intentional by the US and DPP, it is still a very dangerous game. The inauguration speech of Taiwan’s new DPP president (only 40% votes and a minority parliament) overemphasized the threat from the CCP. This is a consistent tactic of the DPP. Whenever the polls drop, it’s like a chihuahua calling out the CCP. US had been hoping that both sides of the Taiwan Strait maintain the status quo and never allow Taiwan statehood and independence.
