Taiwan Fighter Jets Scramble As China Invades…

China is relentless in its pursuit of taking over Taiwan. They claim that the island belongs to them and are refusing to accept that Taiwan is its own democratic country. So after a group of U.S. Senators visited Taiwan in a surprised visit, China once again showed its aggressive nature, invading Taiwan’s air defense zone with over two dozen warplanes.

Taiwan’s air force scrambled again on Sunday to warn away 27 Chinese aircraft that entered its air defense zone, Taiwan’s defense ministry said, the latest increase in tensions across the Taiwan Strait as China’s president met his top generals.

Chinese-claimed Taiwan has complained for a year or more of repeated missions by China’s air force near the democratically governed island, often in the southwestern part of its air defense identification zone, or ADIZ, close to the Taiwan-controlled Pratas Islands.

Taiwan calls China’s repeated nearby military activities “grey zone” warfare, designed to both wear out Taiwan’s forces by making them repeatedly scramble, and also to test Taiwan’s responses.”

The latest Chinese mission included 18 fighters jets plus five nuclear-capable H-6 bombers, as well as, unusually, a Y-20 aerial refueling aircraft, the Taiwan ministry said.

The bombers and six of the fighters flew to the south of Taiwan into the Bashi Channel which separates the island from the Philippines, then out into the Pacific before heading back to China, according to a map the ministry provided.”

China’s incursion on Sunday was the largest since a record 52 Chinese military planes breached Taiwan’s air defense zone in October. China claims Taiwan as a part of its territory and does not recognize the island as an independent country.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian told reporters that the unification of China with Taiwan is an “unstoppable historical trend.”

The belief is that China is going to wait until at least 2024 to attack Taiwan, but there is no telling if that is true. But if they do and we take action in defending Taiwan, that will likely be the start of world war three. That could be why the Biden Admin is wanting women to sign up for the draft. The Chinese Army outnumbers us 2 to 1. But I hope I am wrong.
