Chinese State Media Threatens China Will Take Action If U.S. Gives In To Taiwan’s Request

It feels like we are constantly on the brink of conflict when it comes to China and Taiwan. This time Taiwan is looking to see where they stand after Biden’s gaffe last week. So they are asking about changing the name of their representative office to reflect their independence from China. China heard about the request and is now telling the U.S. there will be consequences.

HU XIJIN, Editor of  The Global Times (Chinese State Media): “Media widely reporting that the U.S. is evaluating whether it should respond to Taiwan’s request and change the name of its representative office in the U.S. from ‘Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office’ to ‘Taiwan Representative Office.’

This is obviously to test the attitude of the Chinese mainland. I think this test is unnecessary. As soon as the U.S. and Taiwan do so, it will undoubtedly trigger an unprecedented response from Beijing. At the very least, Beijing will recall its ambassador to the U.S. as it did in Lithuania for the same reason. And that is merely the diplomatic retaliatory measures.

Beijing will definitely take economic and military actions against the arrogance of the U.S. and Taiwan. At this point, it is foreseeable that the mainland fighter jets will fly over the island of Taiwan. The mainland has been planning it for a long time. I’d like to point out that the U.S. and Taiwan have continued to increase the mainland’s cost of maintaining peace in the Taiwan Straits. More than half of China’s diplomatic troubles have to do with the Taiwan question. Calls for a thorough solution to the Taiwan question through force are consistently increasing in the mainland. The Taiwan question is getting very close to the tipping point.”

Taiwan is putting us in a pickle here forcing us to essentially choose sides. If we allow them to change their name it is going to put more of a strain on our relationship with China, and it may affect our trade with Taiwan.
