Taiwan’s Navy

Interesting post on the Jamestown Foundation’s China Brief

An increasingly assertive China is behaving more in line with past Chinese Empires rather than reflect the more humble origins of the Communist Party. India being the other big, rising power in Asia, there is very clear scope for conflict of varying degrees between the two countries. China has effectively propped Pakistan as a major headache on India’s western flank. I wonder if other countries may serve to rein in/distract the Dragon.

Starting with Taiwan. I’d look to study how the two Chinas match up in a subsequent post.

    China should worry less about America’s “containment” strategy and more about why the neighbours welcome it
