China claims Taiwan Strait, calling U.S. disruptive of regional stability

Chinese aircraft carrier, Shandong, sailing in Taiwan Strait

Brad Johnson discusses China’s determination to seize independent Taiwan. Both the U.S. and the Japanese Naval forces are patrolling the Taiwan Strait reminding China it cannot claim ownership. This is clearly an aggressive move to demand Taiwan as China’s own.


brad johnson here for americans for
00:02
intelligence reform it is february 25th
00:05
2021.
00:06
uh interesting little piece of news in
00:08
the navy uh
00:09
sphere if you will the the as if
00:11
something i’ve mentioned a great deal is
00:13
china has been building up a very
00:15
serious navy
00:17
launched i believe it is three aircraft
00:19
carriers right they didn’t have any
00:21
only a couple of short years ago and
00:23
also a submarine force
00:25
uh build up plus all the regular navy
00:27
ships a lot of other navy ships being
00:29
built and thrown into it they’re
00:30
building a
00:31
first-class world power navy where they
00:32
did not have one before
00:34
now part of one of their goals i think
00:36
we all understand anyone who wants to
00:37
recognize the truth for what it is
00:40
there’s always been this thing between
00:41
taiwan and mainland china they each kind
00:44
of claim well there’s really only one
00:45
china but
00:46
they each sort of separately say well we
00:48
represent it
00:49
which has become just a joke for i mean
00:53
taiwan’s clearly a separate country
00:55
they have a booming economy a capitalist
00:57
style economy a lot of politics back and
00:59
forth
01:00
but mainland china is communist all the
01:03
way
01:03
and uh if they can’t steal money from
01:06
the rest of the world in the west and
01:07
they don’t have any way to
01:09
to to make money that’s the the system
01:11
is so inefficient being communist
01:13
now what’s interesting that has
01:14
developed there are people starting to
01:16
push back to the to the degree that they
01:18
can
01:19
we’ve seen the us and japanese defense
01:21
force they call it but it’s the navy
01:24
sail through together in a joint navy
01:26
operation
01:27
the taiwan straits so the taiwan straits
01:29
are between taiwan and china
01:31
china views that as their own
01:34
territorial waters
01:36
so they uh
01:39
and i think they do genuinely view it
01:41
that way because they 100 percent
01:43
believe taiwan belongs to them and they
01:45
are 100 percent going
01:47
gonna go in and get it and i would not
01:49
be a surprise to see them
01:51
take action on this during the biden
01:54
administration because president biden
01:56
is
01:56
so weak on china and
02:02
the their their take and what they’ve
02:05
been complaining about
02:06
is saying that the united states is
02:09
undermining
02:10
regional peace by invading
02:13
chinese territorial waters so this this
02:16
lays the groundwork and we’ve got at the
02:18
same time something i’ve mentioned
02:19
before
02:20
we’ve got the new director of the cia
02:22
coming in ambassador william barnes
02:23
who’s saying that we’re in
02:24
competition with the chinese and joe
02:27
biden has taken that to kind of cover up
02:29
his weakness on china
02:30
he’s trying to talk tough and so what is
02:32
he saying he’s saying we’re in
02:33
competition with china
02:34
well when china is clearly intending
02:37
to invade and throw and take over taiwan
02:41
just as they’ve done with hong kong and
02:43
they’re they’re already
02:44
moving the lines out around what the
02:47
the waters that they claim to control to
02:50
include
02:50
taiwan they’re planning on facing down
02:54
these p that the u.s and japan navies
02:56
are going through the taiwan straits and
02:58
things like that because
02:59
they’re going in and taking this out
03:01
that’s not competition it
03:02
is a a misdirection from the problem on
03:06
the part of joe biden and his
03:08
intelligence community
03:09
and the director of the c the coming in
03:11
director of the cia
03:12
and what they’re doing is creating a
03:15
situation
03:16
that’s going to turn into violence it’s
03:18
going to turn into war
03:20
and that’s stupid and dangerous this
03:22
sort of stuff needs to be turned around
03:24
and hopefully we can get enough of this
03:26
information out there for people to
03:28
start to
03:28
analyze and think about that some of the
03:30
politicians who generally are worthless
03:32
on this sort of thing because they don’t
03:34
like to
03:34
look down the road at what can be a
03:36
problem and say gee we need to do
03:38
something now to fix it
03:39
because that doesn’t help them
03:41
politically particularly so it’s it’s
03:43
one of those things that doesn’t lend
03:44
itself to our political system in the
03:46
united states
03:46
so it has to be brought to people’s
03:48
attention hopefully we can start to get
03:49
the word out there
04:10
[Music]
04:12

  1. I don’t think China will attack taiwan its more a move to bring the current occupant of the White House to the table – trade restrictions will be lifted by the USA and what a great job avoiding war .
    Meanwhile the communist stick there claws into our fabric and way of life .

  2. China is going to attack Taiwan the question is when? If I were doing the planning I would give Biden and Company several more months to damaged the US Military before I moved. The problem with this is they may not have several months before Puti9n makes his move in Ukraine and the two nations what their military actions to be happening at roughly hte same time.

    1. China already has attacked Taiwan from the fact they control the finances . China will run their play and it won’t amount to much .
      With respect to Ukraine kiss it goodbye – plus Putin is simplifying it communist are still
      Here they are a huge threat – so will we respond I doubt it . Will Putin attack no but he will takeover their leaders .

  3. China won’t need to attack Taiwan they are dismantling their financial systems. The war has already played out – the rest is Symantec’s –
