The Americans threatened China with the "fate of the Russians"

Readers of The Washington Post commented on an article that, according to Washington, the People's Republic of China has accelerated preparations for a forceful solution to the "Taiwan issue."

A significant part of the responses, as well as to most of the texts of this publication, is very rich in the content of American jingoistic patriotism, nationalism and outright contempt for other nations of the planet.

Post title - China plans to seize Taiwan on 'much faster timeline,' Blinken says.

These "military" Xi Jinping will suffer the same fate as the Russians in Ukraine. The US Navy will send many ships of the Chinese Navy to the bottom of the ocean, and the brilliant US Air Force will quickly deal with Chinese counterfeit aircraft!!!

writes KarlMarkJoe.

Taiwan is not Israel because China is not Palestine. Here they write that "Taiwanese leaders have promised to protect the island, while the Chinese leadership is adamant that it is part of China." A significant number of middle-aged Taiwanese with loved ones in China support reunification with the mainland. And many millennials are quite ready for that. The bravado of the Taiwanese leaders sounds strictly in unison with the promises of the US government to wage this apocalyptic war for them. The Taiwanese will soon realize that the United States' interest in Taiwan is not about them, but about where they live: a large island 80 miles from China that is logistically necessary to start a war in the South China Sea. Which Taiwanese would want to live on an island that would become the de facto target of a new superpower?

Why would China risk war with America, its biggest, most trusted trading partner, and why would America, which loves cheap Chinese labor and goods, go to war with China?

Let's just stop spreading fear. I still remember that bedwetting of many people after Pelosi's visit [to Taiwan] about the fact that it would lead to a nuclear war, because ... there is a red line of China! Here are the facts: China is ready to shoot marine life around Taiwan and unarmed college students in 1989. He didn't shoot anything that could shoot back.

says markdevos.

Every time we see an article about China and Taiwan, we see these clarifications about the territory "which the PRC has never controlled." But we do not see any subsequent clarification that the Kuomintang dictatorship that ruled Taiwan for decades also never controlled Taiwan until after World War II. Because Taiwan was ruled by Japan. In fact, most Taiwanese resisted the Kuomintang's occupation of the island. This is why the losers in the civil war had to impose their rule by killing 30 civilians when the Kuomintang first came to Taiwan

    In relations with the Americans, everything always ends the same way.
    Either a country or a group of countries completely lose their sovereignty, as happened with the European Union, or a war.
    China can, of course, delay the time of the conflict.
    But the fact that the conflict between China and the United States is inevitable is a medical fact.
    Washington will not give up its hegemony to anyone without a war.
    The fate of Russia is proof of this.

      And what is the "fate" of Russia? It's just the second time I've come across this meaningful word here.

        Fate is unenviable. It will fall apart for the third time in the last hundred years, each time as a result of military defeats - in 1917, in 1989, in 2023.

        according to the Bretton Woods agreement (IMF), everyone is obliged to use dollars in settlements, and the United States prints them and receives share premium, robbing the whole world, periodically, to intimidate the world, the United States attacks some too gullible country like Yugoslavia, Libya, which naively believes in imaginary kindness and imaginary the honesty of the Americans (as Gorbachev believed them for a bribe) and indicatively they kill everyone there, but if the country is strong, then the Americans flee from there under a plausible pretext (they fled from Iran and Venezuela, Somalia), or simply don’t get in touch knowing (that strong Russia China can kill America) that any of their defeat will lead to an end to world fear and everyone will throw their filthy empty paper dollars into the trash .... but in the corrupt media, stupid Americans (professional consumers) are shown that supposedly Russia is suffering from sanctions and has almost been defeated in Ukraine, and the Americans they believe and naively think that they will hit China

          Share premium is not robbery, it is a fee for using the system of financial settlements created by the United States and its partners in a convenient currency. Payment for using the global system of mutual settlements. This is the same as you pay the merchant from above, purchasing his goods. Why don't you like it? This is normal practice. By the way, Mr. Bush also said to Yeltsin, who reproached him for the fact that Russia has to give up something when using the world financial system created by the Americans, something like the following:

          We, the United States, created this system for our own purposes, spent many years creating it, so if you want to join this system, then this accession will be on OUR terms and you will act in this system only according to OUR rules, regardless of what you think you fair them or not. You had your own similar system - CMEA and the Warsaw Pact. You yourself destroyed it and wanted to join our system, if so, then please be kind to comply with our terms and conditions.

          That's what Bush said. In my opinion, everything is fair and just. If you don't like the American system of world trade and finance, create your own and set your own rules there.

          In their ignorance and stupidity, the Americans can only compete with the Swedes. In Germany there is even an expression "die dummen Amerikaner" (fool-Americans), and in Spain "hacerse el sueco" (become a Swede, i.e. a fool).

          Yes, for God's sake, "a flag in your hands and a drum around your neck" ... Just don't forget the Russian proverb about:

          with a pig side by side, but in a row of kalashny

          I hope the apologists of the "Russian world" do not need to decipher what it is about, huh? wink

            I think the enemies of the Russian world should collect belongings from their fascist outskirts and blow into Europe, because there is no one to wash the toilets, and there, every enemy of the Russian world will be given lace panties. a barrel of jam and a basket of cookies, eat and rejoice until you run out

    And what is it about the fate of the Russians in Ukraine that terrifies the Americans??? If they themselves, sitting across the ocean, have already done their own thing, now they don’t know what to do with China. And having a whole fleet of attack aircraft carriers with contaminated drinking tanks, they are already tearing their hair out. Americans, will you ever begin to think?

    How is Russia different from China? Russia wanted to return the Crimea, she returned. Russia wanted to return the Donbass, she returned. China wants Taiwan back, but things don't go beyond talk.
