After falling an F-5, and then an F-16; 60,000 people went north to the “Autumn Fight” and asked for “hollow cabbage” to step down; PLA fighters clocked in every day, and the “separatlist” was about to be released… At this sensitive moment, the United States still thought that cross-strait relations were not tight enough, and the Taiwan authorities died fast enough. Continue to arch fire in the strait.
According to a report on www.huanqiu.com on November 22, several media on the island hyped that a special U.S. Air Force plane arrived at Taisongshan Airport on the evening of the 22nd, saying that the plane was on board Gina Haspel, the director of the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and some media said that the visitor to Taiwan was Stidman, the commander-in-chief of the U.S.S. Indo-Pacific Intelligence, this trip It is to inspect the intelligence assets between Taiwan and the United States.
Regarding the report of the Taiwan media, the Taiwan Foreign Affairs Department responded to the sense of survival, saying that the director of the Central Intelligence Agency of the United States did not arrange a visit. The relevant report was a false rumor, but the Taiwan Foreign Affairs Department did not deny the report of Steadman’s visit to Taiwan. That is to say, the U.S. military special plane that landed on the evening of the 22nd carried at least one or two of the Director of the CIA and the Commander-in-Chief of Indo-Pacific Intelligence of the U.S. Navy.
In the information society, the visit of senior officials to a certain place is almost transparent, and they can’t hide it. Especially in the United States, as the focus of the world, it attracts attention. If Taiwan’s foreign affairs department continues to lie about this matter, even if it is not exposed by the Taiwanese media, the U.S. government may hit it in the face. However, the Taiwanese authorities have been punched in the face twice or twice, and the “face” thing is a luxury for them.
Since this year, senior American officials have visited Taiwan far more frequently than in previous years. First, Health Secretary Aza and Under Secretary of State Krach visited Taiwan one after another, and then rumors of Secretary of State Pompeo’s possible “brupt visit” were revealed. Before the U.S. Environmental Protection Director Wheeler planned to lead a delegation to Taiwan in December, another senior U.S. official came. For the Trump administration that attaches great importance to alliances, sending senior officials to Taiwan again and again is a very abnormal manifestation in itself.
The identity and task of senior American officials who visited Taiwan this time are more sensitive. Although it has not been confirmed who it is, the specific task is to “inspect intelligence assets”. Before the war, in addition to food and fodder, intelligence work was also the top priority. Combined with the adverse results of the U.S. election on current President Trump, it cannot be ruled out that Trump will make a big move in the Taiwan Strait. Now sending senior U.S. officials responsible for intelligence work to Taiwan is to assess the possibility of a cross-strait war so that Trump can make a final decision.
Obviously, the Taiwan authorities also smelled the dangerous smell. Although these separatists usually shout fiercely, if one day they are really wanted to go to war, I’m afraid they will get worse and worse. Since the beginning of this year, from the signals released by changes in striving for national unity, high-profile commemoration of the 15th anniversary of the promulgation of the Anti-Secession Law, the intensive holding of military exercises by the People’s Liberation Army on the eastern coast, normalized cruises of fighter aircraft, and the establishment of a “list of separatists”, the mainland has been ready for jurisprudence and military struggle.
As for the behavior that the United States has been on the situation in the Taiwan Strait, the Taiwan authorities dare not disobey the meaning of “American father” and take the last step. They can only cover up and secretly admit it.
The “clarification” of Taiwan’s foreign affairs department can only be described as covering up and stealing bells. Is there any difference between the Director of the CIA and the Commander-in-Chief of Indo-Pacific Intelligence of the U.S. Navy? In the view of mainland China, whether it is the director of the CIA or the commander-in-chief of the navy’s Indo-Pacific intelligence, the two visits to Taiwan have the same adverse impact.
The mainland has long made it clear and drawn the red line there. Now it is silently watching the performance of the United States and the Democratic Progressive Party. At the right time, a military unification will zero all these small actions.
