The capture and shelling of this plant gave me the most anxiety of this whole war and thread. It’s crazy to see it becoming a back and forth affair.

yea they will hold the world hostage eventually with that place.

CHINA is convinced it now needs to hit America "hard and early " in a surprise Pearl Harbor-style attack to invade Taiwan, a leading expert has warned.

Oriana Skylar Mastro, a fellow at Stanford University, told The Sun Online how Beijing increasingly views an invasion of the island as inseparable from a war with the US.

She explained that Beijing now believes it also has to fight the US if it is to fulfil its long cherished goal of invading Taiwan and "reuniting" with the mainland.

Mastro believes the most likely way such a conflict would play out is with a Pearl Harbor-style attack on US forces in the region.

It would be designed to try and knock out US forces so they could not react to stop China gaining a foothold in Taiwan, which it regards as its territory.

The strategic gamble would be an attempt to stall a wider war - just as Japan hoped when they attacked Pearl Harbor in 1941, drawing the US into World War Two.


Scary if true that china sees the invasion of Taiwan and attacking the US military assets in the region as the same thing.
It is the same thing, but nothing about that makes sense or would be possible today

Countries like Russia, China & Co. musste be destroyed. Or better to say, not the countries, but the states.

Maybe it'll just be aggression at the same time like you say
i would suspect china pretends to coordinate. the ru takes the opening shots and china sits back letting RU get removed from the world. while nato distracted/shifted resources then it can do its island hopping.
IMO. my worthless opinion.

:dunno:
