China launched surprise “punishment” drills encircling Taiwan, just days after the inauguration of a new Taiwanese president Beijing has denounced as a “separatist.”

The two-day exercise began abruptly at 7.45am on Thursday and involved aircraft and ships surrounding the island to “test” their combat capabilities, China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) said.

Experts said the drills simulated a full-scale attack on Taiwan for the first time, rather than just a blockade.

Taiwan is its own place with its own people. Taiwan friends with USA, and wants democracy. 🇺🇸 🇹🇼, even similar flags.

I bet china wants to change the Taiwanese flag so bad since it is similar to usa flag.

As a Taiwaness, I am also a Chinese. Taiwan's real name is Republic of China, Taiwan is only a province both claimed by both side.

Prayers to Taiwan and their courage going forward but also to those whom are innocent Chinese who are forced to fight in this regardless of their own personal beliefs and desires. As for all conflicts, bravery:blessings:pity: context should all be given in relative measure.

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.

According to russia, dictators are getting more brave since US was not able to stop russia expansion of territories into Ukraine. We are leaving 1938 and moving into 1939.

Maybe PRC should first try to fix its own internal problems instead of putting its nose everywhere it doesn’t belong. Once they’ve managed to have the same standard of living as Taiwan, then they can come back to try to invade it.
