Xi Jinping: Taiwan — Come To My Desire
NEW YORK (RichTVX.com) — Xi Jinping, the paramount leader of China, quickly proved no better than an emperor. The most prominent political leader in China, since 2012, used the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to gain power for himself. Xi Jinping is also a dictator, with little care for individual lives or human rights. As China’s leader, he is responsible for the Xinjiang internment camps. It is estimated that Chinese authorities may have detained up to 2.5 million people, mostly Uyghurs but also Kazakhs, Kyrgyz and other ethnic Turkic Muslims, Christians, as well as some foreign citizens including Kazakhstanis, in these secretive internment camps located throughout the region. Generally, Xi Jinping’s luck improved during the 2021–2022 Russo-Ukrainian crisis, so he finally found a new sense of purpose, as he devised a strategy that took China’s Communist Party in a dangerous new direction. Xi Jinping turned once again to attack his enemies, and he is determined to destroy them once and for all. No wonder, the Biden administration increasingly believes that Xi Jinping is gauging the U.S. response to the Ukraine crisis as a proxy for how the United States would deal with more aggressive action by Xi Jinping against Taiwan, a mountainous island one hundred miles off the China coast, according to sources in the Central Intelligence Agency. These thoughts seem to be fine to Xi Jinping, but foreign observers are horrified. Taiwan moved forward toward democracy and economic stability. But mainland China refused to recognize Taiwan’s independence, maintaining it was a breakaway province. “Others are watching, others are looking to all of us to see how we respond,” Secretary of State Antony Blinken said at a news conference, without naming China directly. Xi Jinping is a brutal dictator. There were no other preferences but his. Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen has ordered her government to monitor the situation in Ukraine and its potential impact on the security of the self-governed island.
Taiwan, officially the Republic of China (ROC), is a country in East Asia. It shares maritime borders with the People’s Republic of China (PRC) to the northwest, Japan to the northeast, and the Philippines to the south. The main island of Taiwan, formerly known as Formosa, has an area of 35,808 square kilometres (13,826 sq mi), with mountain ranges dominating the eastern two-thirds and plains in the western third, where its highly urbanised population is concentrated. The capital is Taipei, which, along with New Taipei City and Keelung, forms the largest metropolitan area of Taiwan. Other major cities include Kaohsiung, Taichung, Tainan, and Taoyuan. With 23.45 million inhabitants, Taiwan is among the most densely populated countries in the world. Austronesian-speaking ancestors of Taiwanese indigenous peoples settled the island around 6,000 years ago. In the 17th century, large-scale Han Chinese immigration to western Taiwan began under a Dutch colony and continued under the Kingdom of Tungning. The island was annexed in 1683 by the Qing dynasty of China, and ceded to the Empire of Japan in 1895. The Republic of China, which had overthrown the Qing in 1911, took control of Taiwan on behalf of the World War II Allies following the surrender of Japan in 1945. The resumption of the Chinese Civil War resulted in the ROC’s loss of mainland China to forces of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and retreat to Taiwan in 1949. Its effective jurisdiction has since been limited to Taiwan and numerous smaller islands. In the early 1960s, Taiwan entered a period of rapid economic growth and industrialisation called the “Taiwan Miracle”. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, the ROC transitioned from a one-party military dictatorship to a multi-party democracy with a semi-presidential system. Taiwan’s export-oriented industrial economy is the 21st-largest in the world by nominal GDP, and 20th-largest by PPP measures, with major contributions from steel, machinery, electronics and chemicals manufacturing. Taiwan is a developed country, ranking 15th in GDP per capita. It is ranked highly in terms of political and civil liberties, education, health care and human development.The political status of Taiwan is contentious. The ROC no longer represents China as a member of the United Nations, after UN members voted in 1971 to recognize the PRC instead. Meanwhile, the ROC continued to claim to be the legitimate representative of China and its territory, although this has been downplayed since its democratization in the 1990s. Taiwan is claimed by the PRC, which refuses diplomatic relations with countries that recognise the ROC. Taiwan maintains official diplomatic relations with 13 out of 193 UN member states and the Holy See, though many others maintain unofficial diplomatic ties with Taiwan through representative offices and institutions that function as de facto embassies and consulates. International organisations in which the PRC participates either refuse to grant membership to Taiwan or allow it to participate only on a non-state basis under various names. Domestically, the major political contention is between parties favouring eventual Chinese unification and promoting a pan-Chinese identity contrasted with those aspiring to formal international recognition and promoting a Taiwanese identity, although both sides have moderated their positions to broaden their appeal.
