having got the above post out my system , 3 words :

right of passage

enshrined in international law

can anyone give a coherent reason why any vessel [ in a safe and seaworthy state ] should be denied transit of the tiawan straits ?????????????????

before replying - bear in mind it is international waters

even better question - why should china [ PRC ] be able to deny the right of tiawan to allow vessels tp transit its [ tiawanese ] terretorial waters ???

don't give me the nonsense that Taiwan is an independent nation crap.

It is an independent nation. China wants it not to be. And the US is the bad guy here?

Maybe WW3 is inevitable:
Looks like WW3 is just around the corner folks when everyone is dead and we have to do a repeat due to our overwhelming stupidity and complacency lets hope we get it right next time.

Frankly it is refreshing to see China being called out on it's bs for a change.
Seems many here would prefer to hunker back down and just fork over their technology, give them as much territory as they like, outsource a few more tens of millions of jobs, and otherwise support the goal of Chinese goal of world hegemony.
But then many here really would prefer communism to capitalism.
