China sends 27 warplanes into Taiwan ADIZ airspace

by News Update

China gave a preview Wednesday of what might be coming for Taiwan by sending 27 warplanes into the island’s air defense identification zone — a buffer of airspace commonly referred to as an ADIZ — according to Taiwan’s Defense Ministry.
Twenty-two of those jets crossed the median line of the Taiwan Strait, an unprecedented number since the island began publicly releasing information about China’s incursions into its ADIZ about two years ago, a flight map provided by the ministry showed.
The incursions come as China begins military drills around Taiwan to protest this week’s visit by US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. CNN’s Stephen Jiang reports.

the old men running CCP in Peking turned to drama queens upon the news of an elderly lady visiting little Taiwan. They are insecured and frailed as their copy cat jets.

USA needs to get its hands off Taiwan. Thousands of Taiwanese protested against Nancy Pelosi's visit and USA' provocations for conflict between China and Taiwan.

La Hy August 4, 2022 - 11:44 AM

The world community is not fooled by Chinese maneuvers in this Pelosi's Taiwan visiting event. Chinese goverment is actively seeking an excuse to invade Taiwan. Thus, the US and NATO must be prepared in advance to respond decisively in the event of China invading Taiwan.

And yet China does nothing but posture and rattle its little sabre. It’s a huge nothingburger. China studies the map, growls, then goes back into its box!

Blame US for this incursion drills. Not a bluff but practicing blockade. Mocking China or Russia do not prevent wars.

Good, now we know their tactics

Other countries:There is no problem.
Meanwhile China:Let's create some problem.

China seems to have gotten bolder since they developed their hypersonic missiles, The missiles could potentially take out an aircraft carrier from around a thousand miles away. As of now there is no defense against it, and it seems they have more than 1200. The Pentagon carried out successful tests of two different hypersonic missiles systems recently.

how pathetic they're so afraid of an 82 year old woman.

How do you respond to a nuclear country? It is not Iraq or Afghanistan.

Raging Monk August 4, 2022 - 11:51 AM

Beijing doesn't see itself as weaker than the U.S.? Well that fool Putin didn't see himself weaker than Ukraine but his 9 day war has been going on for 6 months with no end in sight.

The Communist party in China stole power. The people didn't give them authority. The real government of China is in Taiwan. But China is bankrupt and dependent on the west. But that is the problem with this dictators. They think they need to project being strong when they should project being intelligent. Guess when you are dumb as a box of rocks you have to take a Neanderthal approach.

Blaine Reeve August 4, 2022 - 11:51 AM

Taiwan and Ukraine have direct parallels. Both Russia and China feel that it's their land and their authoritarian Govt wants it back, both were prosperous baby nations, with exports greater than their imports. Both are small cash cows and a stain on their Govt style, as they are both Democratic and prosperous, they do NOT want their people seeing that outcome as it massively undermines them in front of their subjects (people). It says loud and clear that other forms of Govt work for the people and money is still to be made without Govt intervention or blatant ownership in your ideas. Can't imagine why it hurts their feelings that a democratic Super Power ignores their demands and shows up anyway. China knows that we are the hand that feeds them now, but they also know that we completely outsourced everything to them to make that a reality. A war with them would be globally bad for both of us, in ways that you can't even imagine yet.

China ain't gonna NOTHING. They ain't about that life

Great job Madam Pelosi!

None of this with Russia and China would be happening if Trump was still in office

Lafosh August 4, 2022 - 11:54 AM

When you take into account the capabilities of Taiwan and plus our carrier group..not to mention support from Japan and the Philippines….and look at China’s ability and competence to succeeding in actually invading and HOLDING Taiwanese people against there will…there is no win for China in Taiwan same concept as there is no win for Putin in Ukraine…these tyrants are disconnected from the will of the people

The total responsibility for putting Taiwan in peril goes to the USA and their reckless Speaker. For her mountainous EGO and utter disregard for the safety of the people of Taiwan, she brought havoc on them. 😡😡😡

They will drill until they get tired and go back to base.

Whoa, Blondie – keep asking that question many different ways so we know that you think that this visit shouldn't have taken place.

Let help Taiwan take down 27 planes then.

Joeni Snapje August 4, 2022 - 11:57 AM

The entire indo pacific region should unite and rally towards defending Taiwan in order to shield themselves against China aggression to dominate each individually. This is the moment to deter China lust for power! Act in unison now or suffer dire consequences for not aiding your neighbors against unprovoked aggression and threats of war!
