Chinese Bombers Make "Largest Ever" Incursion Into Taiwan's Air Space In Dramatic 'Message To West'​

In what's clearly a well-timed and glaring "message" not only aimed at Taiwan but especially at its Western backers amid this week's continuing sanctions tit-for-tat with Beijing, Taiwan's military is reporting on Friday the "largest ever" incursion by China's air force.
While in the past months the PLA aerial patrols have grown bigger and more frequent - sometimes coming every week and often involving eight or a dozen or possibly even fifteen combined Chinese fighters and bombers - Friday's incursion involved a record-setting twenty PLA military aircraft. This is by far the largest ever recorded, since Taipei began publicly releasing data on the incursions.
"Twenty Chinese military aircraft entered Taiwan’s air defense identification zone on Friday, in the largest incursion yet reported by the island’s defence ministry and marking a dramatic escalation of tension across the Taiwan Strait," Reuters reports.

I think French and Belgian warships were on the way to the South China Sea to try and scare them but got stuck because of the Suez canal blockage.
Xi's just waving it in their face at this stage.

China has given plenty to the west over 300 years, the west has little respect or appreciation.
We lied, we cheated , we stole! America has been very pleased with Chinese industry and financial favours, now why oh so bitter?
Oh, blame China because America wants to fry, grill and chew down on the world again. :ura: Rapturous war never ending dear Jesus.

This Suez incident brings back the nominal declaration of the end of the British Empire and suggests a similar historical signal to the Americans. It's a very different situation though.

There are more details on the events and crew in this CNBC report from today. Apparently, it's a Taiwan owned ship crewed by Indians with, presumably, an Egyptian pilot. There was no mechanical or engine failure discovered by the initial investigation.

There's some more information in this interesting report. High winds can cause significant shear forces on this size of ship as it progresses through a narrow canal in flat terrain. The video shows a simulation of the ship's transit and grounding.

Are ships of this size common in the canal? Will they widen the breadth or build windbreaks in response to this grounding? Expect a large infrastructure project to be foisted on the Egyptian government.

Llyods was known for shipping insurance and this could be a big problem for the City if it's one of theirs. Who's ever this is it's trouble.

This is a very significant event. I didn't know that navy ships were in transit to the South China Sea but that could be another coincidence. This incident deserves a thread on its own really. It will exacerbate the microcracks in the world economy caused by the pandemic and the financial crisis.

In any case, the free world is not done yet despite all the flute playing. Things have improved from hopeless to desperate. It's not the nineties anymore, party time is over.

These type of ill-informed Drump zombies just keep on coming. The only value their words actually have is to reveal to us the character and key messages of the radical doctrine, the dogma, that has these poor, ignorant dupes in thrall.
The Chinese Communist govt are intrinsically untrustworthy.
They have lied about the origins of the Sars covid 2 virus.
They lie about human rights abuses.
They then seek to bully all western govts into shutting up and accepting their filthy corrupt regime.

Only criminals would deal with such a profoundly evil regime.

Those pigs and murderers want world domination.

They are tyrants and despots ready to murder and kill any opposition anywhere.

Satanic ....that's the key word....
Wherever it rears it's ugly head,..

Not about economics....or about a 'Workers Paradise'...it's about a Satanic Disruption of the Natural order,
Always with a particularly vile and hypocritical set of thugs giving the orders...

A Gust of Wind = = Not Very Believable. I know nothing, but would it surprise anyone if there was more to this than meets the eye !

We are not in Kansas now,Toto.
All we need now is for the Iranians to block the Straits of Hormuz and the West is hog tied.
Events .dear boy .events. or just Murphy's Law.

We can't say that although it should be investigated (and I'm sure it will). This news story from the Philippines certainly belongs in this thread.

Some 183 Chinese fishing boats are massed in Philippine waters. The Philippine authorities suspect that they are manned by Chinese state militia. There's a threadbare excuse for them being there. Looks like Xi is sending Duterte a message. There's a report in the tweet below.


You know the more I pay attention, the more it feels like those last 24 hours before a meteorite hits the Earth in the movies. I was watching US CNN earlier and the closest thing I could compare it to are the preoccupations consumed when inherited wealth is whittling its trust away. The trinket vultures are circling the untempered stupefied child.

The thing to do now is not to embed yourself in the system at any cost, it's to get good at stuff. Received wisdom, as relayed through the various orifices of authority, has become very faulty.
