China’s bizarre tirade at US supply of frigates to Taiwan; US only wants to make money because of reduction in military budget

Perry Class Frigate

Perry Class Frigate

The following is a translation from Chinese media:

The United States’ supply of four Perry class frigates to Taiwan has become a hot topic, but a People’s Liberation Army major says that even with such weapons, Taiwan lags behind China by two decades. He especially pointed out that Perry class frigates are outdated warships that the US is decommissioning and selling, to get some funds and ease the effect of the reduction in the US military budget.

However, even if the US is willing to sell Taiwan some really advanced weapons, it will take time for Taiwan to learn how to operate them and provide logistic services for them; therefore, the US is unable to help Taiwan if a war breaks out now.

Over the past decade, The PLA has commissioned many advanced weapons and set up a combat system far  superior to Taiwan’s. The war now will be of a larger scale that Taiwan can afford.

If the war across the strait emerges in the future, China is enhancing its military strength much faster than Taiwan. Taiwan will be hopeless especially when China has commissioned its J-20 stealth fighter jets and hypersonic weapons, and built its homegrown aircraft carrier.

According to the major, China wants a peaceful solution of the Taiwan issue. For that purpose, China has to develop its military to make it far superior to Taiwan’s.

The US knows well that it is unable to help Taiwan but only wants to make money by selling some outdated weapons to Taiwan. Taiwan knows well such weapons cannot help, but at least the sales show that the US is on its side. That gives Taiwan a false sense of security.

The new parts are Chapters 12-19 on events in China after the first edition was published: The fierce power struggle for succession between reformists and conservatives; Xi Jinping winning all elders’ support during his mysterious disappearance for 2 weeks in early September, 2012; and Xi Jinping Cyclone. Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.

  2. It’s even more bizarre when China simultaneously, stares down on military strengths of Australia, Japan, India, South Korea, the Philippines, Vietnam…in individual comparisons! Like a school yard bully, does China think it can just call out each “weakling” for a fight one after another?
