    It is a joke, Most countries dare not to officially support Taiwan. Here all taiwan supporters have no any help to Taiwan, they can not represent their goverment. Taiwan is also a coward, never officially declare independence. Independence is just a dream. wake up.

  • James Cameron says:

    Taiwan should be like Israel..small but powerful in their defence. Don’t let big bully country like china tell them what to do.

  • Zin tepest says:

    China needs to learn from prev world wars.. you cant fight on two fronts. China has so many enemies now including india. If war were to breakout china would have to fight so many military powers and super power like US. Russia will not risk siding with china. Use u r brain china.

    As Trump once said Saudi cannot last 2 weeks without Us, Taiwan cannot last 2 days.

  • Traveling DEEPAK says:

    Taiwan and China should calm down and talk like brothers.. say no to war

  • Ramiz Northland says:

    Taiwan better find some common ground with the mainland China and not relying on military strength to resolve that issue simply because it’s not winning combination for Taiwan.

  • j x says:

    Sovereignty and safety… complete bogus. They are the aggressor. Not up for debate.

    • Vlad Glyebov says:

      @j x
      Sure. International law is rubbish. U.S. has proven on many occasions that it is definitely not worth following, so why would we, eh?

    • j x says:

      Vlad Glyebov China (and Russia) constantly flout international law. Why is it that the USA, U.K., the EU, Australia, India, Japan all call out your countries continuously. And of course your countries cry and say USA warmongering bad. They have ZERO credibility. The USA has credibility. 🇺🇸🇬🇧🇹🇼🇭🇰🇦🇺🇰🇷🇯🇵🤫🤫🤫🤫

    • Vlad Glyebov says:

      @j x
      Yeah, why do U.S.A., U.K., the E.U., Australia, India, and Japan all call out Ukraine continuously?
      The Five Eyes are spreading misinformation, spy on everyone including allies and own citizens, support separatists and terrorists in Hong Kong SAR, Xinjiang, and now Taiwan (I also have reasons to believe they did that in my country — Ukraine), blame China for all their incompetence, and somehow _you_ have credibility?
      Are you hearing yourself? Or is your country’s brainwashing routine is so good that you just can’t distinguish truth from lies and propaganda anymore?
      Also, yeah I cry and say U.S.A. warmongering is bad. They literally fought the most wars since the end of WWII, some of which were wars of aggression (Iraq invasion), which are illegal under the international law.

    • j x says:

      Vlad Glyebov Yeah of course, you have excellent media in Ukraine and Russia that definitely keeps you truthfully informed 🤣🤣🤣 Why does Russia, China persecute western journalists if they are so honest and open? I call BS.

    • j x says:

      Vlad Glyebov Maybe you love standing/shilling for brutal, disgusting authoritarian regimes that seek to undermine the West, but I much prefer our imperfect democracies in U.K., USA, Australia etc. We publicise our shortcomings instead of suppressing dissent and intimidating the press. A higher standard.

  • Israel Poulard says:

    Fake news

  • Israel Poulard says:

    Ahahaha China will capture tawain under 100 hour . no match

  • Jim Winter says:

    China would either be stupid or evil to attack Taiwan because so many lives would be lost. If China does attack Taiwan I can think of many people that will rush to Taiwan’s defence. China would definitely have trouble if it does. I think the US has made that clear.

  • Paolo Gabriel henson says:

    china ftw

  • Aggies02 says:

    you can really F w/ ccp by annexing Taiwan as a state

  • Kamil M says:

    No one will escape CHINA’S wrath, if US bombs to death then China starves to death, stop sucking US balls, China is way better to deal with, they will never hurt your sovereignty, they will never bully you, they will not measure you in dollars, they won’t give you military equipment & then provoke proxies on the other hand, they will invest in your state, make you 100 years infrastructure in 20 years & let you stand on your own feet while US will trap you in a web of large debts & aid & then force you to buy your military equipment after sending in its own trained terrorists. But now it’s almost loosing patience & if Chinese take a stance they will never even think to negotiate what they want to capture.

  • Shiva Deepala says:

    May be this is what China wanted. Unrest in the world with Covid, fight with neighbouring country…all countries should come together and give a befitting reply to China.

  • Data was a treacherous android says:

    China’s claim over the Chinese South Sea did not grow. What’s growing is China’s actual control over the waters. Also, my condolences to the families of the soldiers died needlessly for the warmongering Tsai regime of Taiwan.3

    We need 100000 kg thermonuclear drop in 4000m in under the South China sea let make mega tunami

  • soba tempra says:

    Don’t forget it’s the USA that destroyed the democracy in Taiwan then handed it to the dictator Chiang Kai Shek Kuomintang. And it’s Japanese-Taiwanese 李登輝先生 that resumed the election system. The USA is always on the side of the dictator destroying democracy, never trust it.

  • Destiny tran says:

    I love Taiwanese President. She is so brave to fight the CCP. Always have to prepare as the CCP can attack anytime

  • Asad Fami says:

    Let’s not kid ourselves. China can take over Taiwan militarily in ONE DAY. But China wouldn’t. Because it doesn’t have to. Taiwan’s trade with China is worth 150 Billion dollars a year. All China needs to do is put a chokehold on trade with Taiwan and Taiwanese would realize the true extent of their ‘power’.

  • John The Madman By Stupid Uruchan says:

    so when will ww3 arrives? it will happened sooner or later anyway we can’t avoid it

  • John The Madman By Stupid Uruchan says:

    but i think the best way to cripple china is to boycott all of their products imagine a lot of neighbor countries do that what would china do? probably starts a real war

  • netflix N' Chill says:

    That kind of stand against China doesn’t exist here in the PH. Our President can only show “Iron Fist” against his people or his political critics. Recently he said that China is our bff (best friend forever) while some of our filipino fishermen are being bullied on our own fishing ground. Here in PH, Chinese are VIP even though they’re caught operating illegal drug lab and recently a “secret” hospital for the chinese with covid19. So we expecting 10yrs from now PH will be part of China

  • CYKA Blyat says:

    ROC isn’t a country, it’s a province. The results of which is the real China during one of the general assembly during the 1970 in the UN says that more than half of the countries on Earth voted PRC to be China as a nation rather than ROC.

  • luci75 D says:

    There is no any tensions. Few tanks and few helicopters won’t be even a piece of cake for china. So that’s a utopian idea china or Taiwan to start a war in between. Two china( PRC- people’s republic of china And ROC-republic Of china Aka Taiwan ) can’t fight each other…..mainland will take over the island without to be shot a single bullet !

  • mohdyaqub khan says:

    There is one country who will never allow both enemies to settle down their arguments because if this thing will happen then it will give a great loss to him. Name of that country is USA because if Taiwan and China stop fighting each other then how USA is going to sell arms good to Taiwan. If USA really support Taiwan then till now why USA hasn’t considered Taiwan as country in UNO as like Israel?
