China now threatens Australia with Long-Range strikes on military facilities and relevant key facilities on Australian soil if Australia joins forces with USA to defend Taiwan against Chinese Invasion.
Chinese Communist CCP propaganda newspaper Global Times News editor-in-chief Hu Xijin in a threatening article titled “China needs to make a plan to deter extreme forces of Australia” dated 7-May 2021 asked Chinese Communist government to make a plan to impose retaliatory punishment against Australia including long-range strikes on the military facilities and relevant key facilities on Australian soil if Australia really sends its troops to defend Taiwan in combats against the PLA in case of a Chinese invasion on Taiwan.
Hu Xijin, the editor-in-chief of The Global Times, which is seen as Beijing’s mouthpiece on foreign policy to the world, threatened that China should retaliate with ‘long-range strikes’ if Australia gets involved in a potential military conflict over Taiwan.
Here is what Chinese Communist CCP propaganda newspaper Global Times News editor-in-chief Hu Xijin wrote:-
Given that Australian hawks keep hyping or hinting that Australia will assist the US military and participate in war once a military conflict breaks out in the Taiwan Straits, and the Australian media outlets have been actively promoting the sentiment, I suggest China make a plan to impose retaliatory punishment against Australia once it militarily interferes in the cross-Straits situation. The plan should include long-range strikes on the military facilities and relevant key facilities on Australian soil if it really sends its troops to China’s offshore areas and combats against the PLA. In addition to making the plan, China should also reveal this plan through non-official channels to deter the extreme forces of Australia and prevent them from taking the risk and committing irresponsible actions.
In the above hawkish comments Chinas Lord Haw Haw Hu-Xijin forgot to comprehend that Australia and United States are going to defend Taiwan against the illegal Chinese military invasion along with other US allies. Any attack by China on any one country of the alliance will be perceived as an attack on all the US allies. The war that could have been restricted to only defending Taiwan in the Strait will force all the Allies to join together and attack all the Military bases and all the strategic locations all over China to deliver a crippling blow to make sure China will be left in no position to threaten and attack any other country in the future. China forgot the International response when Iraq invaded Kuwait.
Chinese Communist CCP propaganda newspaper Global Times News editor-in-chief Hu Xijin further threatened Australia:-
“If they (Australia) are bold enough to coordinate with the US to militarily interfere in the Taiwan question and send troops to the Taiwan Straits to wage war with the PLA, they must know what disasters they would cause to their country. China has a strong production capability, including producing additional long-range missiles with conventional warheads that target military objectives in Australia when the situation becomes highly tense.“
He also made a joke while he used the words, “‘China loves peace‘ and would ‘not take the initiative to pick a fight with faraway Australia‘”.
Whole International community knows how many countries around the world, Chinese Communist CCP has threatened with consequences.
Emboldened by lack of coordinated action against China for attacking the whole world by releasing the deadly Chinese Corona Virus worldwide that took lives of over 3.29 Million people worldwide, China has started giving threats to the other countries who dare to stand up against China.
Earlier Chinese Threats
After a joint statement between Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga and US President Joe Biden on 16-April 2021 and thereafter statements coming out from Japan on 24-April 2021 regarding studying the possible responses of the Self-Defense Forces in the event of a military conflict between the United States and China over Taiwan, China has started giving threats to Japan via its mouthpiece The Global Times.
Any mention of Taiwan in a joint statement by any World leaders is enough to irk China. Communist CCP China’s mouthpiece, The Global Times, then starts its old tricks to throw empty threats on other sovereign nations who dare to stand up against China.
An article threatening Japan was published in Communist CCP China’s mouthpiece The Global Times on 24-April 2021. Communist CCP China has threatened Japan in the event that Japan interfere and provides logistics support to US against China over Chinese invasion of the Independent Taiwan, whose sovereignty and independence, China disregards.
We covered it in our previous article China’s New Focus is Japan: Strategic Shift or Desperate Search for a Winnable Front? in details.
Earlier, through an article published in The Global Times on 19-April 2021, Communist CCP China has threatened an Australian invasion in the event that Australia interfere over Chinese invasion of the Independent Taiwan, whose sovereignty and independence, China disregards.
We covered it in details in our previous article China Threatened To Attack Australia If Australia Drags Itself Along With US In War Over Chinese Invasion of Taiwan
The joint US-Australian intelligence-gathering base at Pine Gap, just outside Alice Springs, the Jindalee Operational Radar Network and signals intelligence facility at Geraldton were nominated by The Australian’s foreign editor Greg Sheridan as possible sites China might target to ‘hurt the US and its military capability’.
Turmoil surrounding Taiwan reached fever pitch in recent weeks after China repeatedly incurred on Taipei’s airspace and maritime borders, sending 25 military aircraft into its defence ‘identification zone’.
There are grave fears Beijing will militarily invade Taiwan very soon.
Taiwan, backed by the US and Japan, has endured a longstanding conflict with Beijing since a separate government was established on the island following the Chinese Civil War in 1949.
Taiwan has democratically-elected leaders and fiercely opposes military invasion of Taiwan and fully rejects the totalitarian rule of Beijing, but Communist Party rhetoric is growing more aggressive when it comes to annexing the island.
The island nation Taiwan remains an important ally of western democratic countries for its close proximity to China and various other economic as well as historical relations.
At a time when China has already launched a Bio-War against the whole world killing over 3.29 Million people worldwide and while the world is trying to revive the economic activity Taiwan is the only country that produces a significant supply of semiconductor microchips at a time when there is a major global shortage. There are various other contributions Taiwan has made to the International community and China cannot be be allowed to invade a sovereign country just because Chinese Han Emperor has a wet dream and thinks everything strategic is owned by China anywhere in the world.
Mr Hu’s comments come less than two weeks after China warned Australia it must support its policy to ‘reunify’ with Taiwan if it wants the trade war to end.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin late last month accused Canberra of ‘meddling’ in China’s internal affairs and said there is ‘no room for any form of Taiwan independence’.
‘China must and will be reunified. We are willing to do our utmost to strive for the prospect of peaceful reunification, but will never leave any room for any forms of ‘Taiwan independence’ secessionist activities.
‘We hope the Australian side can… avoid sending any wrong signal to Taiwan independence forces, and take more actions that is conducive to peace and stability across the strait and for China-Australia relations.’
China and Taiwan have a long-standing dispute over the island’s sovereignty.
China considers Taiwan as a part of its territory, more precisely a province, but many Taiwanese consider Taiwan as a free and Independent country. In fact Taiwan has got recognition from quite a few countries around the world as well. Other countries are still weighing their options whether to end business with China and give recognition to Taiwan instead or to have equal relations with both Taiwan and China, independent of the relations with each other.
From 1683 to 1895, Taiwan was ruled by China’s Qing dynasty. After Japan claimed its victory in the First Sino-Japanese War, the Qing government forced to cede Taiwan to Japan.
The island was under the Republic of China’s ruling after World War II, with the consent of its allies the US and UK.
The leader of the Chinese Nationalist Party, Chiang Kai-shek, fled to Taiwan in 1949 and established his government after losing the Civil War to the Communist Party and its leader Mao Zedong.
Chiang’s son continued to rule Taiwan after his father and began democratizing Taiwan.
In 1980, China put forward a formula called ‘one country, two systems’, under which Taiwan would be given significant autonomy if it accepted Chinese reunification. Taiwan rejected the offer. Even the International community cannot believe China after Chinese betrayal to people of Hong Kong.
Taiwan today, with its own constitution and democratically-elected leaders, is widely accepted in the West as an independent state.
Chinese threats and Economic War against Australia
Australia’s relationship with its biggest trading partner began to drastically deteriorate in April last year when Prime Minister Scott Morrison called for an independent inquiry into the origins of coronavirus, which first appeared in Wuhan at the end of 2019.
The plea for transparency over Covid-19 infuriated the Communist Party who retaliated by imposing arbitrary bans and tariffs on billions of dollars worth of Australian goods including barley, wine, cotton, seafood, beef, copper, and coal.
China has waged a year-long campaign of economic coercion against Australia, targeting about $20 billion worth of exports with arbitrary trade tariffs and bans.
Millions of dollars of Australian imports have encountered difficulties entering the Chinese market, including timber, beef and some types of coal. In March, the Chinese government confirmed that Australian wine would face tariffs of up to 218% for five years due to allegations of “dumping and [market] damage.”
Hypocrite China holds cargo ships from other countries at its Ports for months, while expects Chinese cargo ships to be cleared in other countries ASAP. More than 20 Bulk carriers including capesizes and panamaxes carrying Australian coal have been lining up at major coal ports in north China, waiting to unload cargo at Tangshan’s Jingtang Port for around ten months, due to the import restrictions China has implemented on Australian coal. There are also many ships under the same situation at nearby Caofeidian Port and Huanghua Port.
China last week indefinitely suspended all strategic economic talks with Australia, blaming the Morrison Government’s attitude towards the relationship.
The move cuts off all diplomatic contact with Beijing under the China-Australia Strategic Economic Dialogue, freezing discussions between key officials below a ministerial level.
But the deeper diplomatic freeze is largely symbolic, given Beijing was already refusing high-level meetings.
‘Drums of war’ are beating louder for free nations
Just days before Mr Wang’s remarks, Australian national security leaders acknowledged the ‘drums of war’ are beating louder for free nations in the region who seek to resist China’s quest for dominance.
Australian Home Affairs secretary Michael Pezzullo said in his Anzac Day message that while Australia should always search for peace, it must also be prepared to ‘send off our warriors to fight the nation’s wars’.
He added free nations ‘must remain armed, strong and ready for war, even as they lament the curse of war’.
‘Today, as free nations again hear the beating drums and watch worryingly the militarization of issues that we had, until recent years, thought unlikely to be catalysts for war, let us continue to search unceasingly for the chance for peace while bracing again, yet again, for the curse of war,’ Mr Pezzullo said.
‘By our resolve and our strength, by our preparedness of arms, and by our statecraft, let us get about reducing the likelihood of war – but not at the cost of our precious liberty.’
‘War might well be folly, but the greater folly is to wish away the curse by refusing to give it thought and attention, as if in so doing, war might leave us be, forgetting us perhaps.’
Points to Ponder
Shouldn’t US, Australia, Japan pool in other countries in South China Sea that have been threatened by China and equip the region with long range missiles, with range long enough to cover all the major cities in the Eastern China that are the centers or all the major economic activity for China?
Shouldn’t Economic sanctions an blockade be impose against China?
