  • On this episode of China Uncensored...

  • I’m back from vacation

  • and just in time for China

  • to make a threatening military action

  • against Taiwan!

  • Hi, welcome to China Uncensored.

  • I’m your relaxed and tan host Chris Chappell.

  • You know what I like about Taiwan?

  • Well, it’s like the parallel dimension China

  • that has democracy

  • and didn’t destroy their traditional culture.

  • And they have anthropomorphized food mascots

  • that serve you smaller versions of themselves.

  • Adorable and creepy at the same time.

  • The mascot, I mean.

  • Oh, and Taiwan's government officials know how to play it cool.

  • I want to emphasize our government has sufficient capability

  • to protect our national security.

  • It's not necessary to overly panic.

  • Not overly panic?

  • What’s there to not-overly panic about?

  • Military jets and navy ships

  • scrambled off the coast of Taiwan on Wednesday.

  • The latest sign of heightened tensions across the water

  • as a group of Chinese warships

  • sailed too close for comfort.

  • Ah, Chinese warships sailing close to Taiwan.

  • That...might be cause for panic.

  • Especially since the Chinese military reportedly has 1,600 missiles

  • pointed at Taiwan at all times.

  • Anyway, on Wednesday,

  • the Chinese military sailed its only aircraft carrier, the Liaoning,

  • through Taiwan’s Air Defense Zone.

  • If only it had been a Sea Defense Zone as well.

  • Even though the Liaoning did not enter Taiwan’s actual territorial waters,

  • it was enough for the Taiwan military to scramble F-16 fighter jets

  • and other aircraft,

  • in a move that absolutely was not panicking.

  • That makes the third time in just three days

  • China has caused another country tonot panic.”

  • Earlier this week,

  • China sent eight warplanes over the waters

  • between Japan and South Korea.

  • And over the weekend,

  • China sent a nuclear-capable bomber plane over disputed waters

  • in the South China Sea,

  • where some say World War III could start.

  • But hey, why is everyone getting so upset?

  • I mean, according to the Chinese Foreign Ministry,

  • this is totally normal.

  • It is normal for the Liaoning to go back and forth

  • through the Taiwan Strait in the course of training,

  • and it won't have any impact on cross-Strait relations.

  • And he has a point.

  • Sending warships close to a country/region

  • youve repeatedly said you plan to conquer

  • is totally normal.

  • Which is why they tried it once before in 2013.

  • And it was totally normal back then too.

  • It's so incredibly reassuring

  • when you keep emphasizing how normal something is.

  • Like when I used to wake up to find my roommate Carl

  • standing over me with a knife.

  • Sure, it was scary at first.

  • But then Carl explained how it was a totally normal

  • part of his sleepwalking.

  • Made me feel so much better.

  • Anyway, the Liaoning was normally passing through

  • the Taiwan strait

  • on its way back from training drills

  • that it had started in the region on December 24,

  • Christmas Eve.

  • Of course it didn't have to sail through Taiwan’s Air Defense Zone.

  • So was China trying to send a message to Taiwan?

  • Well, they may have actually been sending it

  • to the Donald Trump administration.

  • Frankly,

  • I would suggest maybe using

  • diplomatic channels next time.

  • Like having state-run media send him a tweet.

  • At the end of last year,

  • Trump enraged the Chinese regime

  • by calling into question the One China Policy.

  • That’s where everyone agrees there’s one China,

  • without having to specify whether it’s the Communist Party-run

  • China in the mainland,

  • or the democratically-run one in Taiwan.

  • Chinese state-run media even vowed revenge.

  • And earlier this week, Taiwanese president Tsai Ing-wen

  • visited the US and met with Texas Senator Ted Cruz

  • and Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

  • Presumably,

  • they talked about all the things Taiwan and Texas

  • have in common.

  • Like a deep-seated love of barbecue

  • and fried food on sticks.

  • And also how they both want to split off

  • and be their own countries.

  • All this is making the the Chinese regime pretty angry,

  • since the US isn’t supposed to have official diplomatic relations

  • with Taiwan.

  • Because Taiwan is part of China.

  • Even though America has vowed to protect this part of China

  • from the other part of China.

  • Like by selling them weapons.

  • Well, the new year is off to a good start.

  • Happy year of the rooster, everyone!

  • So what do you think about China sending its aircraft carrier

  • near Taiwan?

  • And how do you think the US should respond?

  • Leave your thoughtful policy analysis below.

  • Thanks for watching this episode of China Uncensored.

  • Once again I’m Chris Chappell,

  • see you next time.
