Taiwan media said that any idea of ??promoting cross-strait arms race were all delusions
people are opposed to U.S. arms sales to Taiwan, against the cross-strait peace moves
World Wide Web on August 28 reported a few days ago, the U.S. arms sales to Taiwan were small, intended to improve Taiwan’s Ching-kuo fighter radar and air defense systems. Year, the U.S. also had sell Taiwan up to 64 billion U.S. dollars of advanced military equipment and was a strong protest against the mainland. United States, one after another dispute between the arms sales to Taiwan, to protest the continuing protests, sold continue to sell, the subtleties of which is that the vast majority of U.S. arms sales to the relatively backward equipment, the so-called cross-strait arms race basically does not work, well aware of both sides in this regard.
rating agency in Hong Kong in an article that is more exaggerated, in early August, the U.S. Navy also informed Taiwan’s “Defense Ministry”, can be decommissioned to sell two Perry-class frigates, each ships cost about $ 20 million. Like this class frigates parents used to fight Somali pirates may be useful, but used for cross-strait military confrontation, is far less, to be honest a little bit funny, this father-class ships, they might cruise during the battle will suddenly stop.
rating agency correspondent set out in abundance on the in-depth analysis pointed out that “metaphor, the development of the end, the two sides is a elephant and rabbit compared to the military, of course, elephants mainland Taiwan’s military must be strong too mainland China, is not that the elephant is more than a certain rabbit strong determination greater it? this abnormal state of mind, will it make the world a joke! “
Although the content analysis of Taiwan is very cruel, but do not want to hear more It is more cruel truth. To Taiwan’s current size of the army and military equipment, there are aspects which can be compared with the mainland People’s Liberation Army. Air Force, Navy, submarines, missiles, army, etc., which in Taiwan have advanced equipment than on the mainland, the number more than the mainland?
article said that Taiwan’s “rulers” If bent arms race with the mainland, can not be said not only is a black comedy in the play: it is helpless, it does not make sense, but also with point of the tragedy of color.
be honest, today the formation of cross-strait peace framework, not a military factors contributed, but political and economic factors contributed.
the main reason is that the U.S. intention to challenge the one China policy, not the strength of the United States are increasingly challenging the one-China policy, Chen Shui-bian’s independence clamor failure, the reasons for this; Secondly, the Chinese mainland in the current peaceful rise and economic development, unification is not the most pressing national objectives, unless independence has resulted in the most obvious and urgent crisis. Taiwan military exercises this is a reflection of a sense of crisis; Third, Taiwan’s unification and independence within the contest has not yet settled, but with the expansion of direct links and exchanges, is moving in the direction conducive to the development of cross-strait peace; fourth , the rapid increase of China’s comprehensive national strength, so that Chinese leaders more confidence that they can grasp the initiative in handling cross-strait peace and development.
US-China relations, the rise of China, the overall development of cross-strait relations, strongly restricts the growth of Taiwan independence, Taiwan independence, the international situation in the real world has disappeared, at best, only play a small number of Taiwan independence extremists to provide spiritual comfort an anesthetic.
with the PLA’s military strength increased significantly in Taiwan intended to promote any idea of ??cross-strait arms race, will be the reality proved to be unrealistic wishful thinking. Today, the issue of cross-strait arms race have fallen off the scope, perhaps only a few spiritual comfort for Taiwan, the U.S. arms companies financial point of arms only.
