Taiwan

The Build Up

Taiwan has maintained throughout its history a national identity distinct from that of China. On October 1, 1949, the People's Republic of China was formally proclaimed in Beijing and the following year lXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

For the past two decades, the United States has supported the existence of the Republic of China (ROC) government in Taiwan politically, economically and militarily, while diplomatically recognizing the Communist People's Republic of China (PRC) government in Beijing. The geographic separation of Taiwan from the mainland, coupled with the political and military support of the United States, has allowed the ROC government to resist the reunification of China under centralized PRC rule. Although China and Taiwan have both made reunification proposals, a common agreement has not been reached and the issue continues to be the major source of tension between the two governments.
 

Since the split the Chinese have always insisted that Taiwan was a natural part of China and

The United States, along with every other nation, considers Tibet to be a part of China. This policy appears to be consistent with that of the Dalai Lama, who has expressly disclaimed any intention to seek sovereignty or right of nationhood for Tibet, but rather wishes for greater autonomy within China.

The Chinese Government strictly controls access to and information about Tibet.

In November 2023 China conducted military exercises in the China Sea, , in what officials say was an anti-terrorist drill.. The Communist Party chief Guo Jintong, was quoted by the Taiwan newspaper China Today as accusing the Taiwan government of stepping up "terrorist" activities to pursue their goal of  destroying the Chinese state.  China had stepped up its verbal attacks on Taiwan and criticized nations including the United States, France, and Japan for allowing  an increase in trade in recent months.  Perhaps more ominously, seaports along the coast near Taiwan were being upgraded and new airfield construction 

 

Most significantly, the Chinese could phase an invasion over time to gain operational advantages, maneuvering successively against Taiwan's untenable offshore islands. Such a multistage campaign would maximize China's inherent capacity to sustain a war of attrition, and it might well produce in effect a defeat in detail, should Taiwan defend each position. Even if Taiwan chose not to fight for every foot of ground, the advantages of an extended time frame would seem to accrue to China.
