South China Sea: Beijing tensions ERUPT as US names Taiwan a country, breaking old pact

June 13, 2019

US President Donald Trump's administration has moved to recognize Taiwan as a country despite long adhering to a one China policy the wording came in a US Department of Defense report entitled indo-pacific strategy report the report was released on Saturday and its language is part of a section explaining the u.s. efforts to improve and solidify relationships with other democracies in the region including Taiwan Singapore Mongolia and New Zealand the report says all four countries contribute to u.s. missions around the world and are actively taking steps to uphold a free and open international order it adds that those nations were reliable capable and natural partners South China Morning Post reports that the move is the latest attempts by Trump to frustrate Beijing as the two countries remain at loggerheads over aspects such as trade the US and China have locked horns over the waters which Beijing is dangerously territorial over read more Chinese military might close to matching America warns shock report China claims almost all of this strategic South China Sea and frequently lambaste s– the United States and its allies over naval operations near Chinese occupied Islands Brunei Indonesia Malaysia the Philippines Taiwan and Vietnam have competing claims a number of other incidents involving lasers and the Chinese military have been reported as far away as Djibouti where the warring US and China both have bases last year the US were left furious at China and alleged lasers had been named at aircraft that resulted in minor injuries to two of its pilots the claim surfaced again days ago when it was alleged Australian pilots were targeted by the same devices China denies both claims the report was compiled by acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan who appeared to stir tensions by claiming the Chinese Communist Party as the architect of a vision for repressive world or this comes as Beijing was warned it could end up facing disaster if they do not trim the sails on their global aspirations including the South China Sea according to an expert professor and chair of the Department of Economics at Liu post in New York Panoz more to kutis wrote in Forbes that China should trim the sails on their global aspirations he said that's why it's leaders should trim the sails on their global aspirations beginning with the South China Sea or end up facing disaster as it did during the opium wars let's block hats why

    If Taiwan is really a country, then Hawaii and Alaska actually don't belong to the States at all, they should be independent countries!

    American trap

    Trump is trying to create war…not just trade war.
    Ban all their planes flying within China and Taiwan airspace.

    Regardless of history….Taiwan is a nation all by itself with a population that wants nothing to do with the corrupt CCP! Just like Quebec, if the population at large votes to be a separate entity then that is what will be reflected in a National Referendum! The “people of Taiwan” will tell their leadership what path they choose to follow and not be forced by a corrupt government in China! I’ve yet to meet a Taiwanese person (From the country of Taiwan….NOT China) who wants anything to do with the CCP! Chinas governmental corruption is well documented….In a recent statement on his crackdown on corruption, Emperor XI says 1.3 million government workers are corrupt. Then there is their constant lying and denials about pretty much EVERYTHING when they get caught doing terrible things against their own people or other countries …Falun Gong persecution’s, Organ Harvesting from unsuspecting victims….pretty much anyone incarcerated is viewed as a living donor which makes a whole lot of cash for the military elite running the operation, to internment of some 2 million Uyghur, to disregarding a world court decision on how to divide up the South China Sea, and deny building military installations (They have heard of satellite photographs…right?) on the islands in the South China Sea which historically are NOT theirs…and using extremely corrupt business practices such as predatory lending to countries who will NEVER be able to pay China back their loans. Instead, they sign over rights to their raw materials and infrastructure such as ocean ports and airports so that China has a strangle hold on their country! EVERYONE knows exactly what they are up to with their “String of Pearls” ocean transportation route and their “Belt and Road Initiative” which is the land version. These two routes will pretty much give China a strangle hold throughout South East Asia. Can you image the result if India claimed as much of the Indian Ocean as China has the South China Sea and disrupt the flow of oil to China? China would be finished in 2 months as they rely totally on imported oil as they squandered all their natural resources already. They are seeking to colonize a world that has already been colonized! Sorry China! The planet should stop dealing with you all together and develop new trade agreements with each other for the mutual benefit of the parties concerned, NOT as China has done where they become the only one who benefits. My suggestion: Due to the extreme human rights violations going on in China these days, ALL NATIONS should boycott the Olympics. Hold it in another venue that already exists…..say like…Calgary!

    Hot News is obviously an American administration propaganda arm. It is fiction with a current events flavors.

    The US, especially under Trump, continues looking for trouble by interfering with China’s ’ internal affairs.

    If you really itchy and wants to fight with China, how about going by 1on 1
    and do not ask other countries to help you?

    Now China sees that it's thievery has consequences.even after the story President Trump at the news conference with the Polish premiere has said that companies would be well-off moving production from China to places like Vietnam Mexico or back to the US.
    Chinese arrogance and delusion have their cost.

    This is a dumb fuck channel with dumb fuck message. Just when did China care what Washington has to say. South China Sea is China, Taiwan is China, Tibet is China, Hong Kong is China, like it or not, take it or leave it.

    As they running short of ammo why not install the new lasers in the 130 gunships and fly around The international waterways around SCS. Two can play that game ….. Be careful you don’t bite off more than you can chew. Chinese people are getting a bit pissed off with your so called leadership, be careful, ?Xi you can only MURDER SO MANY OF YOUR OWN PEOPLE. THEY ROSE UP ONCE BEFORE BELIEVING THAT TYRANT TOO! Give them DEMOCRACY. or face the retribution of your wrong policies .

    The US has shown it can not fight a war on its own, it has now enlisted Taiwan's help to fight Chinese in mainland China. The civil war between the Nationalists' and Communists' army happened centuries ago. It shows how cheap and cowards Americans are at present.
