The real truth is, they want a capitalist system where everyone is tax oppressed before a corporate takeover. Taiwan is a joke to be honest. Their roads are so bad that last days of our tour we had to take a train. The roads are no where as good as PRC. But as food goes, both country does a lot better job being tax/tip free compare to the West. US is just using Taiwan as leverage before takeover and implementing its corrupt system into China. We all know how well Canada become under NAFTA and sell out of its companies. EU is slowly dying. Choose between US/Russia.

I swear if the Greeks still had its empire around they would totally go against US. None of the Greek states act like US or even wants its corrupt system. Life won't be like the movies(ehm 300). The Greeks right now are totally against US already. So what does that mean when it comes to freedom? US has blind freedom. They will come back for you US civilians just like what the cops are doing after dealing with Russo-China.

It amazes me how people are so brainwashed regarding the west. They see the west as the goid guys, here go free people and get rid of nasty leaders!

It's annoying because that's bow the west has gone to war, or invaded countries because they tell "their people" thst we are freeing people, when we all know that do not give a crap about the people, or how many innocent men, women and children die. Hell, they do not give a crap about their own people in their country!

This is not to say that it's only the west that has a lot to answer for, but I hate the fact that people turn a blind eye on the horrors their own government has done, or they are so brainwashed they cannot see it

Chiang is dead, so is Mao. ROC is just a name. Nothing like the days of civil war era. It even voted in a Japanese puppet just like the start of WW2 where Japan puppet parts of China & Korea after Opium war. Mainlanders are not stupid. So inb4. The only way to get rid of China is to get rid of US. The whole world already knows about US puppet tactics through democracy and regime change. It is already a lost game for ROC.

Only Chinese can change China, not outside forces. You don't infiltrate Yellow with White people.

Taiwan is one of the extremely concerning global flashpoints. Putting aside the risk of a nuclear exchange, a U.S. - China war over Taiwan may have the highest stakes since WW2. Involving Taiwan as the flashpoint for a future war: I don't subscribe to the idea of the war ending quickly. The risk is the war lasts a period of 4 - 6 years. American and allied military planners and political leaders are not prepared for a war of this duration.

If China wins the war, what happens to the U.S. led international rules-based order in the Asia Pacific or around the world? New Zealand is mostly ignorant concerning the nature of authoritarian China. Consider what might occur if the Communist of China remade the international rules-based order in its image?

There is an additional strategic risk that is not mentioned in the above discussion. Putin may conclude the time is ripe to enact the Russian invasion of western Europe. Putin and his military planners may conclude the withdrawal of U.S. military forces from western Europe and the United Kingdom is a gift too good to ignore. The withdrawn forces in question would either be retraining and re-equipping in the U.S. or fighting in the Pacific. At this point, the high stakes war is no longer regional; the conflict is global.

The reader may apply the same strategic thinking to North Korea and Iran. (Although, the stand-alone addition of North Korea wouldn't add the global dimension to the war).

The threat of mass shootings and terrorist attacks by extremists on both sides of the political spectrum is present. The Christchurch, Mosque (mass) Shooting proved that New Zealand's geographical isolation is not a defence against extremism.

Nor does New Zealand's geographical isolation protect us from the threat of war in the Asia Pacific. The potential risks from the U.S. - China War over Taiwan is more significant than is currently posed by terrorism/ mass shooters. Terrorist organisations and mass shooters can't overturn the present U.S. lead international rules-based order.
