The People’s Liberation Army’s military exercise in Taiwan has attracted global attention, and Beijing’s fear of taking Taiwan by force is rampant. However, the CCP high-level meeting in Fujian accidentally revealed that China has not planned to attack Taiwan by force. Japanese military experts also said that Xi Jinping’s military force against Taiwan The performance is just to allow China to vent its internal dissatisfaction with Taiwan so that he can be successfully re-elected at the 20th National Congress, and he does not want to force Taiwan at this moment.
Since the US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi came to Taiwan to visit Taiwan, China started a three-day large-scale military exercise on the 4th, and continued to postpone the end time for various reasons until yesterday (10th) on the official WeChat account of the “Eastern Theater” of the Communist Army. The blog post said that the joint military operation “successfully completed various tasks” and was considered to be the end of the military exercise, but the situation on both sides of the strait is still tense. On the same day, Xia Liyan, vice chairman of the Kuomintang, led a delegation to visit Xiamen, China. The timing of the visit was sensitive, which not only attracted backlash from the outside world. In this regard, Li Linyi, a current affairs commentator of The Epoch Times, said today (11) that this shows that the CCP is trying its best to step up the united front of the Kuomintang and crack down on the DPP.
According to a report on the official website of the Ministry of National Defense of the People’s Republic of China on the 10th, Tan Kefei, a spokesman for the Ministry of National Defense, said that the military exercise around Taiwan is aimed at Taiwan independence and “external forces.” The right choice.”
On the same day, the Taiwan Affairs Office of the Communist Party of China released the white paper “Taiwan Issue and China’s Unification in the New Era” after 22 years. In addition to reaffirming “the fact and status quo that Taiwan is part of China” and “peaceful reunification, one country, two systems” is the solution for the mainland to resolve the Taiwan issue. The basic policy is not to give up the use of force against Taiwan, and it is particularly pointed out that the Taiwan Democratic Progressive Party government is an “obstacle that must be removed.”
On this occasion, Xia Liyan, vice chairman of the Kuomintang, paid a high-profile visit to China on the 10th, claiming that the trip was already planned. There are more communication conversations.
Before Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan, Yang Zhiyuan, the vice-chairman of the Taiwan National Party in China, was accused of engaging in “Taiwan independence” separatist activities and was arrested by the National Security Bureau, drawing attention from the outside world.
Regarding China’s recent measures against Taiwan, current affairs commentator Li Lin told The Epoch Times that this shows that the CCP is trying its best to step up the united front of the Kuomintang and crack down on the DPP.
According to a report by Lu media “Zhengzhijian”, the Standing Committee of the Fujian Provincial Party Committee held a meeting on the 9th with the theme of “deployment and promotion of the united front and economic development of Fujian Province”. Yin Li, secretary of the Fujian Provincial Party Committee, pointed out at the meeting that in the future, he will “explore new paths for the integration and development of the two sides of the Taiwan Strait”, “oppose the “Taiwan independence” split”, and “improve the military-civilian coordination mechanism to provide strong support for the troops stationed in Fujian to fight and win wars. “
The outside world is concerned, what will China do next? The “Zhengzhijian” report listed three points. The first is “winning the hearts and minds of people”. The Central United Front Work Conference was held on July 29th and 30th, in which the 7th Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China participated, and this Fujian Conference implemented the spirit of the Central United Front Work Conference.
Chinese President Xi Jinping once said at the Central United Front Work Conference that the united front is an important magic weapon for governing and rejuvenating the country.
Second, Fujian is unique in the United Front. The report quoted the headline article “Comrade Xi Jinping’s Exploration and Practice on United Front Work During his Work in Fujian” published on the first to fourth pages of the “Fujian Daily” on July 26.
It is mentioned that Fujian is the main ancestral place of Taiwanese and has a special status and role in promoting reunification, and Xi Jinping also actively promotes exchanges and exchanges between Fujian and Taiwan.
The third is exploration, which Yin Li has mentioned many times, “exploring a new path for the integration and development of the two sides of the Taiwan Strait” and so on.
In this regard, Li Linyi emphasized, “United Front KMT and combating the DPP will become the mainstream of the CCP’s policy toward Taiwan in the next few years. It is expected that there will be no real war in the Taiwan Strait in the next few years, and the United Front has been carefully arranged.”
In fact, the CCP’s military exercise has exposed several military weaknesses. Many experts believe that the CCP currently has no ability to attack Taiwan, and it is unlikely to attack Taiwan in the near future.
During the CCP’s military exercise against Taiwan, a total of 7 military exercises were set up in the sea and airspace, and 11 missiles were launched, 5 of which missed and landed inside the waters of Japan’s exclusive economic zone.
In an exclusive interview with Japan’s Asahi Shimbun, former commander of Japan’s Self-Defense Fleet, Yoji Kada, said that China claims to be “blocking Taiwan”, but if the US military deploys, the communist army still cannot easily block Taiwan. He believes that the focus of this military exercise should be to vent dissatisfaction within China.
Kata Yoji believes that it is not easy to attack Taiwan, especially if you want to carry out a landing operation, you must first weaken the opponent’s counterattack ability to almost zero, and at the same time, the Chinese side must also consider the risks of the US military and the Japanese Self-Defense Forces.
And several previous studies released by the U.S. Naval War College also showed that China still lacks some equipment and skills enough to invade Taiwan. Dennis J. Blasko, a retired Lt. Col. Dennis J. Blasko, wrote in the study that China’s amphibious forces “lack the ability to conduct large-scale Taiwan-attack missions.”
In this regard, Li Linyi also pointed out that Xi Jinping hopes to avoid war and win Taiwan through military intimidation and united front work. It is worth noting that Li Linyi said that no matter how the CCP implements its united front, the vast majority of people in Taiwan will not accept the CCP’s rule, because Hong Kong is a lesson from the past.
Since the US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi came to Taiwan to visit Taiwan, China launched a three-day large-scale military exercise on the 4th, and continued to delay the end time for various reasons until yesterday (10) The official WeChat account of the “Eastern Theater” of the Communist Army.
