Taiwan’s reunification must be accomplished.It’s will of 1.4 bln Chinese people.

I wish the U.S. media would cover stories such as these. Instead, our media is more concerned with Lebron James and his Taco Tuesday's.

Of course not. Reunification is not invasion.
Morgan Rosse Morgan Rosse . 1 day ago
The guest did mention that "Ukraine is a sovereign nation whereas Taiwan is not recognised as such." This is factually true!
Morgan Rosse Morgan Rosse . 1 day ago
The guest said many wrong piece of information. For example, he said "since the WWII, Taiwan enjoyed the independence", which is literally wrong. After the WWII China received Taiwan from Japan in 1945. The ruling party of China, KMT, escaped to Taiwan from mainland China after it was beaten by CCP, but still Taiwan has been a part of China since WWII. Even today, the official nation in Taiwan is Republic of China. Taiwan is never an independent country.

Oh, we have to know that Taiwan is not a sovereign state.Decades ago, the Kuomintang went to war with the Chinese Communist Party.The Kuomintang lost.But the Chinese Communists gave the Kuomintang a way to live, and they let the Kuomintang go to Taiwan.So, in fact, the problem between China and Taiwan was triggered by the war between the Kuomintang and the Communist Party.This is nothing more than a civil war in China. I don't think the West has the right to interfere.

It makes sense potentially China will dominates the semiconductor market in near future. And it makes no sense for China to invade their own provice by military.

There is no war between China and Taiwan.
Crazy stupid Biden told Pelosi to visit Taiwan. He wants war with China.

Your westerners will never understand the Chinese culture and long history of the unification of the country is the core interest, and paramount goal from the highest leader to the normal citizen, it is flowing in our blood and DNA. The fear to cession and split of country will trigger the nightmare of brutal invasion of enemy, and national humiliation of the Chinese people. If the CCP lost Taiwan, they will lost mandate of ruling China. So the reunification of Taiwan is not merly ambition of Xi Jinpin, nor the party, is the goal of the whole Chinese people, if not 100%, at least 95%+ of us.

Its really strange. Is everybody aware that every country in the world recognises that Taiwan is part of China? So whats the issue? Why are we getting involved. The China should dominate the region its their country.

Taiwan alone of course is unable to fight off China. The problem is USA. Its in USA's interest that TW not be under China because if that happens, Japan and SKorea, USA allies, also will be in trouble since TW becomes a China defence and control the Taiwan straits. So the problem is USA appears to be weaker than 10 years ago and this makes people lose confidence in USA ability to lead the world. The weapons needed by TW is always not given by USA for some reason. Its like Ukraine situation. Whatever the reason, USA has not been handling the China-TW issues well. Clearly USA is not the Reagan days USA. Within USA, the gun issues shows how poorly managed USA is. The political system of USA is also too corrupt . All this makes people around the world lack confidence in democracy and USA

War creates money and money creates chaos. Wars have and will continue to happen for that exact reason. Peace is only ever relative in any situation. All it takes is a potential cash cow to be created or noticed and boom its game time for warmongers. They use any excuse for war. People who love anarchy. It's been happening since the dawn of man. So, in that case nothing will change.
