China is yanking our sleeve to get attention – again.  If it’s so important for China’s “face” to have control of Taiwan, why did they get chased out of there when Chiang Kai-Shek was in charge of the place? Nice photo of a Chinese fighter jet in the article. Looks an awful lot like one of ours, too.  Hmmm…..

From the article: Taiwan has accused China of attempting to wear down its Air Force with regular flybys, with former Defense Minister Yen Teh-fa telling parliament in October 2020 that Taiwan flew 2,972 sorties against Chinese aircraft between January and October that year.

In Beijing, the spokesman of China’s Taiwan Affairs Office, Ma Xiaoguang, said the latest flybys were a response to “acts of collusion” between Taiwan and “foreign forces” in a bid to secure Taiwanese independence. China sees self-ruled Taiwan as a rogue province and has vowed to reincorporate the island with the mainland.

The flybys happened on the same day the U.S. Navy said a carrier group, led by the aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan, entered the South China Sea via the Bashi Channel. Citing a spokesman from the carrier group, Reuters reported the Navy did not have any interactions with the Chinese aircraft.

China has previously flown a large bomber force near Taiwan while a U.S. Navy carrier group was transiting the nearby waters. The Wall Street Journal reported in February that one such force of H-6s carried out a “mock attack” on the Theodore Roosevelt Carrier Strike Group as the lead ship and its escorts transited the Bashi Channel. – article

It’s all BS. I know it, you know it, and Xeebie knows it but he’s gotta show us whose boss or something like that.  And it’s worth wondering just how many stupid mistakes the current administration will make in regard to Taiwan vs. China over the next few years.

Stay tuned to this station. There is very likely more to come. And good night, Mrs. Calabash, wherever you are.

    Used to think that we would go to war with the Chinese Communist over Taiwan; not so sure anymore. Prezzy Sniffy has already banked the 10% for “The Big Guy” to do nothing but posture when the Chinese Communists attack Taiwan.

    “Looks an awful lot like one of ours…” Hell, it should look like one of ours, the Chinese Communists got the full specs on that aircraft from our domestic enemies.

      We wouldn’t stand up for/with the Kongers, why change tactics if the plan is so clearly delineated by the inaction of our western govs?
      We have run from the moral high ground so f***ing fast that we’ve found ourselves oh so far into the briar patch without a’knowin’, and the wade out seems an impossibility.
      Crow pies for us to sup.

    China knows they own the biden family. Why else would the dementiua in chief use his first week to grant access to part of our power grid to china just because Trump tossed them out of it?

    Russia isn’t far behind given that biden only gave a small list of things putin (russia) are NOT allowed to hack into. Kind of leaves the rest of the country as fair game, dontcha feel so protected now? It was pretty much like telling the japanese they can bomb pearl harbor but only the battleships in 1941. What a frigging incompetent jackass.
