Taiwan expert: Taiwan should have such a consensus and should not expect foreign military support or joint operations
Taiwan should first have a consensus that it does not expect foreign military support or joint defense operations, because foreign aid is not reliable, said Luo Qingsheng, chief executive of the International Institute for Strategic Studies, who reported on the Taiwanese military’s “defense operation concept,” according to the Island’s green newspaper Liberty Times.He also said he no longer trusted the United States.In addition, shu Hsiao-huang, an associate researcher at the National Security Council of Taiwan who is responsible for analyzing the military strength of the United States and the Chinese mainland in the western Pacific, pointed out that the goal of the US military in the western Pacific is to deter the mainland, when asked by the media about the determination and methods of the US to “intervene in a War across the Taiwan Strait”.The United States should be reluctant to commit ground troops, and may wish only to deter with sea and air power.Shu xiaohuang said that in recent years, the United States has taken pains to operate the western Pacific battlefield, hoping to play the role of precision-guided weapons in this environment. In addition to conducting joint exercises with many countries, the United States has conducted more exercises alone.Shu xiaohuang pointed out that compared with the strength of China and the United States, the United States still has an advantage, but because the United States has to pay attention to the global situation, for example, the recent tension between Russia and Ukraine, to send more troops to Europe, but there is no news that the Indo-Pacific region of the United States troops will be transferred to Europe.In addition, although the US Navy has fewer ships than the PLA Navy, its total tonnage is more than twice that of the PLA, and its aircraft carriers and air wings are far behind that of the US, so it is still not on an equal footing with the US.Luo qingsheng said that due to the PLA’s improved combat capabilities, as well as the emergence of unmanned aerial vehicles and AI technologies, the Taiwanese military cannot fight another generation of wars.He believed that if the Taiwanese army failed in its so-called “anti-landing operation” and switched to urban warfare, it would be completely unreliable.The Taiwanese army will have to face drones, not soldiers.It is impossible for a volunteer or militia with short training to operate high-tech weapons such as drones. Therefore, the Taiwanese army should implement the recruitment system and fight by professional soldiers. Otherwise, it is disregard for human life and inhuman.Luo Qingsheng reminded Taiwan leaders to participate in the exercise, often use “cloud leopard” armored vehicles to retreat, this is a very bad thing.After all, in a war, a leader is supposed to be at the center of command and collapse if he leaves, as the president of Afghanistan’s previous government did last year.Senior Colonel Tan Kefei, deputy director of the Information Bureau of the Ministry of National Defense and spokesperson of the Ministry of National Defense, said at a regular press conference on The afternoon of December 30, 2021 that the root cause of the current escalation of tensions across the Taiwan Straits lies in the provocation of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and the “Taiwan independence” separatist forces and the attempts of external forces to “control China with Taiwan”.The PLA is duty-bound to safeguard national sovereignty and security and curb separatist activities for “Taiwan independence”.Tan Kefir said that since 2021, the PLA has regularly organized patrols of bombers, reconnaissance planes and fighters around the Taiwan Island, regularly organized joint combat readiness patrol by various services and arms in the vicinity of the Taiwan Island, and regularly organized live-combat exercises such as joint naval assault, joint land strike and joint air defense operations in the seas and airspace near the Taiwan Island.Hype the number of the actual number is the plane than the democratic progressive party (DPP) authorities will only more, not less, goal is very clear, that is to act decisively back outside the island power frequently poor behavior, issues challenge the one-china principle, resolutely safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity, and earnestly safeguard the common well-being of compatriots on both sides of Taiwan strait and peace and stability in the Taiwan straits.
