Forums - Politics Discussion - Xi Jinping Wants War

No doubt about it, as proven by his nationalistic speech to the Chinese people, whom he'll most likely screw over in the process.

Saying China is willing to fight a bloody battle to regain it's position just screams warmongering.

First Putin and now this guy. The Cold War's returned, and now World War III is on the horizon. -_-

He also said he doesn't seek to expand.

It feels more like a threat to Hong Kong and Taiwan.

True, but to me it feels like he's pointing a gun right at whoever he doesn't like, which may very well include Canada.

That's called paranoia.

The US president does that too and it's not scary at all.

Hong Kong is already doomed. We also have to keep in mind, Taiwan and Hong Kong are very different situations. Hong Kong was on contract to be returned back to China. Taiwan is its own self-ruled island and never been touched by the Communists. Taiwan is officially The Republic of China, which is a different Government compared to The People's Republic of China. It is too late for China to take over Taiwan without massive war, and while they may talk big, they won't go to war. Why? Because Taiwan's own military is the 19th most powerful in the world. That is powerful for an island nation of 23.5 million people with land mass the size of one U.S. state. Not to mention, if war breaks out, Japan and U.S. will step in to help Taiwan. Therefore, war is unlikely to happen.

Except Trump can be taken care of way more easily than a communist fanatic president for life.

Maybe Xi is a nice dictator. Stop judging people you have never met.

NICE dictator? There's no such thing.



>Talks about the major geo-political standoff that has lasted for decades between China, Taiwan and Hong Kong

>"GASP!! XI WANTS TO INVADE CANADA!!!"

I'm not particularly sure how you reached this conclusion, but i'm just going to outright say that it isn't correct. Not only are Canada and China on relatively good terms, they have beneficial trade, are not positioned in the same ocean as China, and are both being hit with US Trade Tariffs.

Now, you could make the argument that this is also about the US, and I wouldn't deny that. Due to Mr Trumps
awkwardly aimed trade tariffs and other attempts to increasingly anger the Chinese as of late, you could see this as a demonstration that they wont back down so easily.

However, even in that scenario, I still refer to my first sentence. In that this is about the Taiwan situation, which is far more complex then "we will wage war on whoever we don't like". It's basically like the US split in 2 for 50 years, and both halves want to unify the country under their own terms; add in that both sides are completely different political spectrum's and you have a difficult situation.
