China held a second day of military drills around Taiwan, with multiple exercises involving aircraft and ships, after the island’s president, Tsai Ing-wen, returned from a visit to the US.

Taiwan’s Defense Ministry said in a statement that on Sunday it detected 70 aircraft from China’s People’s Liberation Army and 11 warships near Taiwan as of 4 pm, with 35 of the warplanes crossing the median line of the Taiwan Strait and entering the southwestern part of the island’s air-defense identification zone.

Warships and warplanes passed over the median line in groups from the north, center and south of the strait, according to the statement. Taiwan’s military spotted J-15s, the Chinese navy’s carrier-based fighter jets, among the aircraft.

The PLA said Saturday it will hold drills and patrols in airspace and waters on the north, south and east sides of Taiwan from April 8 to 10. Eastern Theater Command spokesman Senior Colonel Shi Yi said in a statement on Saturday that the drills are a “stern warning against Taiwan separatist forces’ collusion with foreign elements.” He didn’t mention Tsai’s visits to New York and Los Angeles, which included meetings with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and other US lawmakers.

They’ve been doing this for a while… this is not new. They’ve been flying in Taiwan airspace and running exercises for years.

Where does everybody think this is going to end? People think that China is just gonna walk away? Do people believe the United States is just going to walk away? Tik Tok like a bomb waiting to go off

This is not good news.
The only true Gospel (good news) is this...
"Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again the third day"(1st Corinthians 15:1-4).
There is NO other Gospel (Galatians 1:7-10).
REPENT and believe (Luke 24:46-47).
