Xi urges corps to strengthen training + Big air incursion over Taiwan = New Cold War, Taiwan replacing Cuba

Mar 27, 2021 | China, Geopolitics, Global Macro, USA

The US is concerned that China is flirting with the idea of seizing control of Taiwan as President Xi Jinping becomes more willing to take risks to boost his legacy.

“China appears to be moving from a period of being content with the status quo over Taiwan to a period in which they are more impatient and more prepared to test the limits and flirt with the idea of unification,” a senior US official told the Financial Times. The official said the Biden administration had reached the conclusion after assessing Chinese behavior during the past two months.

Twenty Chinese military aircraft entered Taiwan’s air defense identification zone on Friday in the largest incursion yet reported by the island’s defense ministry, marking a dramatic escalation in tensions across the Taiwan Strait…

Many of my Global Macro Insight reported the importance of Taiwan for China. The trade war initiated by Trump forced China to realize the weaknesses of its semiconductor supply chain. Or course, TSMC becoming Chinese could change that, but the USA will become too dependant on China…

The USA will never accept this, and in this new Cold War, Taiwan replaces Cuba…

Always bear in mind that the USA wants to celebrate Independence day without masks and China will celebrate the 100 years of the Communist Party… No way to give up on both sides.
