Taiwan slams Chinese military drills, cyber attacks while Beijing denies wrongdoing post-Pelosi trip

by News Update

At a press conference on Wednesday, Taiwan’s defence ministry slammed China’s military drills being conducted, following a visit by U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. As the highest-level U.S. visit in 25 years to the island China claims as its own, Beijing has responded with a burst of military activity in surrounding waters, summoning the U.S. ambassador in Beijing and halting several agricultural imports from Taiwan.

Taiwan’s defence ministry spokesperson Sun Li-fang said the “reckless” drills were challenging international order, destroying regional security and amounted to a blockade of Taiwan’s territorial air space and waters. Sun also warned that China was continuing to engage in spreading misinformation, and that citizens should not believe in internet rumours.

At a separate news conference, Taiwan’s digital minister Audrey Tang said that all public institutions in Taiwan have been hit by cyber attacks, as tensions with China rose following Pelosi’s visit. According to Tang, attacks on Taiwan government units surpassed 15,000 gigabits on Tuesday, 23 times higher than the previous daily record.

In Beijing, Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said that China has not seen its military drills around Taiwan causing freedom of navigation issues. Chunying added that China’s military actions were legitimate and meant as a deterrent to Taiwan.

China better back off

There is a translation issue, the first spokesperson utilized the term 'Republic of China rather than 'Taiwan'.

The Government of the Republic of China in Taiwan or the State of the Republic of China-Taiwan is only virtual, and in fact, that nonsense cannot make your sovereignty claimant legitimate.

Since the United Nations returned Taiwan to China with the Cairo Declaration, that means the verdict confirmed China has sovereignty over Taiwan, Taiwan's sovereignty belongs to China according to international law and international law practice is confirmed. The Taiwan authority entity is illegal and its existence infringes China's sovereignty and has no legitimacy. If the territorial sovereignty belonged only to the indigenous peoples, the United States would not exist, the South American countries would disappear, and Australia and New Zealand would be dissolved. A country or nation with its national territorial sovereignty and sovereign rights are not the same concept as well as private property.

Interesting new development. My theory for the security,prosperity and insuring of liberty for the ''' Collective Of North American Civilization'' best at this Point In Time.

Good News is that Eye Love You. Calling for an immediate ceasefire !

That stated, read the following thrice carefully and and please only discerning, wise and questioning persons respond : Back in October 2019, as a World Peace Advocate, Independent Student Scholar of History, Geopolitics, Wars & Civilizations and Independent Security Analyst and Theorist HAD concluded that we ( North America, NATO member countries and THE WEST) are on a path towards WW3 due to the US-CHINA TRADE WAR begun by the Trump Administration back in early 2018, The Arrest of the CFO of Huawei Meng Whenzou by the RCMP in Canada in order to honor an extradition treaty with the USA, other geopolitical events, & the historical event known as Pearl Harbor. Concluding as an Independent Thinker, Analyst and Philosopher that we ( Humanity ) are on a Path Towards WW3 HAD created, designed & made a New Training Program produced to go hand in hand with a WW3 scenario. Thus, October 17 2019 HAD performed the 1st session of the General War Integrated Total Body Training System aka The 300 Workout integrated & in parallel to a near future timeline witch was the WW3 scenario. 93 Days later, the COVID 19 Crisis Began ! In parallel to my WW3 scenario witch is caused by a Stock Market Crash witch consequently triggers a Global Financial Collapse the Coronavirus began. Not sure what caused Covid believe it was snakes but cannot rule out another possibility. What do know is my scenario HAD a solution the creation of a New Institution : The International Citizen Integrated Social Security Force aka The Dragon Army witch am calling for the creation. Tell the Leaders of the Free World Dragon Zero's Message : Drop Down and give Dragon 13 pushups with Love & For The Sake of World Peace.

What say ye ? Will you join the Dancing Goddess & Dragon Kingdom for World Peace ? Can u support, volunteer, bless & love Adrian Hannah Dragon's World Peace Work ?

伤害两岸人民情感?现在一口一个中华民国?要不要点脸。你们要是有点种,就直接修宪然后跟老共干到底啊,一天到晚在这里精神分裂。天天自嗨说国际共识,台湾是个独立的国家,你看看你们有几个邦交国,你们在联合国什么角色?你佩洛西奶奶来台湾敢说台湾国吗?满嘴跑火车,瞎胡扯一通价值观的事儿,人家拍拍屁股走了,共军现在去台湾家门口军演,你们咋不把美国人喊回来保护你们,跟共军对着演习啊。若人家不来,你国军弟兄自己顶上,那也算不辜负青天白日旗了。
