VOA Chinese on Pelosi Visit: Is Taiwan Strait Military Showdown Imminent?

Wondering how the Voice of America was presenting the Pelosi visit to its Chinese audience, I found this article among others. If you would like to scan the other articles, you can click through to them via Google Translate. Below I have put links to some reporting and commentaries surrounding Speaker Pelosi’s anticipated visit to Taiwan from the Taiwan press along with a link to the Google Translate machine translation of those articles.


Is this Visit Safe? For Taiwan, Mainland Pressure, Constricting its Foreign Links so Taiwan Pushes Back

Speaker Pelosi will not be an uninvited guest. I imagine that Speaker Pelosi got an invitation from the popularly elected government of Taiwan (Taiwan authorities if you wish). That government, popularly elected by the people of Taiwan, certainly must have, as is their duty, to considered the decision to invite Speaker Pelosi in the light of its possible effects on Taiwan’s political political and economic security.

I imagine that part of that consideration included the experience that the PRC (historically the rebel regime in a frozen conflict with its predecessor on the China mainland, the Republic of China, which retreated to Taiwan if you wish) has for many years been striving to reduce Taiwan’s international ties and associations, both official and unofficial. The PRC is always trying to expand the international understanding of the scope of applicability of what the PRC calls the One China Principle (the US has a one China Policy, not a one China principle) in order to establish a “principled position” for objecting to Taiwan’s international links.  Taiwan deals with this incessantly.  Conceding ground to the PRC on what is its acceptable international space pushes it further down the road to strangulation, I can imagine the popularly elected government of Taiwan supposing. 

Many countries, because of China’s growing economic heft and political assertiveness over the past few decades and with the expectation (perhaps) that PRC power will continue to grow at the current pace, have been more accommodating to PRC protests. If they conceded, China takes that ground and makes it the new threshold for acceptable — albeit grumpily — links with Taiwan as it tries to make Taiwan’s international space ever more constricted.

  I would observe that no one knows the future and that straight -line extrapolations on national power relative to other states are very uncertain albeit convenient and very easy to do.  I am reminded of this by Paul French’s article in Foreign Policy much more nuanced speculations about the future —  “A Shrinking China Can’t Overtake America”.

So it seems to be that the popularly elected government of Taiwan decided that “Nancy Pelosi going to Taiwan right now makes Taiwan safer.” 

I think this is a reasonable guess about  a Taiwan view as to whether this trip makes Taiwan safer.  From the U.S. side, Speaker Pelosi has a natural interest in Taiwan because of the Taiwan Relations Act and Congress is a co-equal branch of the US government, inconvenient as that can be at times for the Executive.  China now of course also has political tensions, economic problems and a jingoist trend that sounds familiar ”Make China Great Again” would be a nice slogan for General Secretary Xi.  Maybe he already has that slogan! It wouldn’t be such a bad translation for 中华民族伟大复兴   ‘the glorious renaissance of the Zhonghua nation’.

Beyond Safe and Unsafe: National Security Interests and National Interests Inevitably Differ Even for Closely Aligned States — US and Taiwan Judgements on What is “Safe” May Differ

What strikes me when I hear “safe for Taiwan” is that it does not get to the heart of things.  Taiwan has its own historical experience, politics, and way of thinking about ‘what is safe’ because it has for decades been seeking safety by pushing back against PRC efforts to constrict its international space and contacts.   Every state (or in fact autonomous political entity if you like) has its own view of its security and interests; the interests of even closely aligned states will differ.

So this reduces to national security and national interest calculations. 

So I think it is not surprising when the answer to the question “what is safe for Taiwan” might get a different response from people in Taiwan and people in the USA.  

Not that one side is right and the other is wrong in their estimate of ‘what is safe for Taiwan’.   Both may well be right, they just live in different situations and see things through the lenses of different national (if I may use the word for Taiwan; that is begging the question!) security calculations and national interests.

 That divergence in perception of security and interests is what we need to focus on;  “safety for Taiwan” needs to be put into context and considered from various perspectives.  I remember President George W. Bush seemed to me to be pushing back on Taiwan/ROC’s then-President Chen Shuibian when President Chen seemed to be taking a more confrontational (leaning towards independence) stance towards the PRC (don’t remember the details).  

The last decade of General Secretary Xi Jinping has seen a more confrontational approach in foreign policy and much increased repression within China; Hong Kong’s once-promised autonomy for another two decades or so, has been brutally erased.  The U.S. One China policy, as I understand it, calls on both sides to reach a peaceful agreement to resolve their 70-years-and-counting frozen civil war, while Taiwan looks forward to at least total autonomy for an indefinite period. 

The real question here is to what extent the national security perspectives and interests of Taiwan and the USA diverge.

One might argue that now is not the time for a high-level visit — the pressure in China’s ever high pressure political pressure cooker is peaking in the months before General Secretary Xi Jinping gets his third term.  Putting things off is easy.  If not now, when? Does the wolf warrior stuff need a push back right now? Though PRC wild talk is just their domestic crazies.   Will it be easier later or will we find more reasons/rationales to keep delaying indefinitely?  Yet again, China’s domestic jingoists who might accuse a Chinese leader of not being tough enough are a big worry for a Chinese leader [the PRC jingoism propaganda machine can create an atmosphere in which Chinese leaders find it hard to work for an accomodation.  

A long way of saying that the elected Taiwan government’s calculation of what is safe might well be different from that of people in the US and  that considering possible divergence of US and Taiwan national security concerns and interests is a more useful question to pose than the objectively-seeming question “is this safe for Taiwan”.  Not just a one-off question. That question is necessarily embedded in what has been learned from historical experience and expectations of consequences.

Taiwan Update

Carl Ford

With so much talk about Taiwan I thought it time to share my near term (out 5-10 years) and long-term predictions (10-15 years) of China’s possible actions regarding the democratic island nation. Despite all the headlines and worry about China’s take aways from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and Nancy Pelosi’s expected visit, my bottom-line assessment remains the same — rather optimistic.

Facebook Posting from Taiwan: Peiruoxi, an apparent incarnation of the Queen Mother of the West of Chinese legend visits Taiwan!

Speaker Pelosi’s visit does seem to be appreciated in Taiwan. One Facebook posting depicted her as a benevolent goddess. Taiwan has been pushing back on PRC efforts to constrict its international contacts for decades and so the current flurry over the Pelosi visit is not very exciting in Taiwan. They have been immersed in it for what seems ages — their frozen civil war is now over 70 years old.

Nancy Pelosi Arrives in Taiwan: Hsiao Ying-dang Text, Lu Wen-yuan Photo

Last night, thousands of cameras were recording this special moment, and this photo of the moment before Pelosi’s plane landed in front of Songshan Airport was the most touching.

The alleyway of Songshan Airport facing Binjiang Street has been the place where Taipei people have watched planes land for decades, with men and women riding in on motorcycles, and fathers standing high up and holding their daughters on their shoulders, waiting for the sense of proximity and deafness that comes with each big plane before it lands, with dozens of people reaching so high that they feel they can touch the belly of the plane and then screaming with a loud bang.

With hundreds of thousands of people around the world following the flight path, and also under the threat of intimidation and force from the big country across the strait, the plane carrying the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives landed in Taipei at 10:40 last night, and more people gathered at this end of the runway on Binjiang Street at Songshan Airport, roaring louder and louder at the roar, greeting the guests with joy and innocence and bravery without fear.

According to Reports Pelosi will Visit Taiwan: Is a Military Showdown in the Taiwan Strait Imminent?


August 2, 2022
Xue Xiaoshan

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi holds her regular weekly press conference on Capitol Hill. (July 29, 2022)


WASHINGTON –
U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) did not include Taiwan in her announced Asia itinerary, but several Western media outlets have disclosed that Pelosi will arrive in Taiwan on Aug. 2. For days, China has been issuing military threats in response. Some military experts believe Xi will not rashly attack Taiwan before the 20th National Congress, but others have advised the U.S. and Taiwan governments to be militarily prepared for a possible Chinese attack on Pelosi and Taiwan.

U.S. media outlets The Wall Street Journal and CNN revealed on Monday (Aug. 1) that Pelosi, who is visiting Asia, has confirmed that she will travel to Taiwan. The Financial Times reported that Pelosi is expected to meet with Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen on Wednesday.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Jan. 1 that the U.S. Congress is an independent and equal branch of government and that the decision on whether to visit Taiwan is up to Pelosi, and that there have been previous visits to Taiwan by the speaker of the U.S. Congress and many members of Congress.

“If the Speaker decides to visit Taiwan and China tries to create some kind of crisis or heighten tensions, Beijing is going to be fully responsible.” He said, “If the speaker decides to visit, we expect them to act responsibly and not engage in any escalation next.”

Will the Chinese Communist Party assassinate Pelosi?

China’s PLA Eastern Theater released a video on Monday titled “Stand by, Fight on Command,” featuring images of navy, army and air force operations and oaths, with the slogan “Bury all incoming enemies and march toward a joint victory over war.

Hu Xijin, former editor-in-chief of the official Chinese media Global Times, who previously threatened to shoot down Pelosi’s plane on her visit to Taiwan, tweeted on Monday, “Let her go to Taiwan, but (she should pray) before she leaves: wish herself a safe journey and hope she will not be defined by history as a sinner who started a spiral of escalation that would turn military friction into a large-scale war in the Taiwan Strait. “

Richard Fisher, a senior fellow at the U.S. Center for International Assessment and Strategy, told Voice of America that “China wants the world and all Americans to believe that they have the right to murder Pelosi, the third-ranked successor to the U.S. president, and that alone would be enough of an act of war.”

“It is extremely important that the U.S. and Taiwanese governments be prepared to respond militarily to China’s attempt to assassinate Pelosi. The fact that China has threatened to kill Pelosi justifies the imposition of U.S. sanctions on China, and (the U.S. should) deport students from China, stop all flights from China to the U.S., and work with U.S. allies, particularly in Japan and Europe, to implement progressive economic sanctions to isolate the Chinese economy.” Fisher said.

He called out, “No matter what the world does, China will attack the free people of Taiwan. China cannot do that. The Chinese must understand that a war against Taiwan is a declaration of war against the entire free world, and the free world will respond.”

Fisher believes it is also possible that China could attempt to attack the U.S. Navy in the South China Sea with anti-ship ballistic missiles, but the current U.S. Reagan carrier strike group east of the Bass Strait would not be sufficient deterrence.

“China has two types of long-range ballistic missiles that could be used for this mission, and launching 20, 30, 40 of these missiles would sink aircraft carriers. I don’t think the Chinese would be intimidated by a U.S. carrier battle group in the South China Sea. Right now they might be deterred by 50 F-22s in Okinawa and another 150 fighters stationed at other Japanese bases. But I’m sorry to say that one aircraft carrier is not up to the job.” He said.

Timothy Heath, a senior researcher on defense issues at the RAND Corporation, told Voice of America via email that Pelosi’s trip could indeed trigger a military crisis, “Taiwan rejects reunification with China. Beijing’s efforts to win Taiwan through economic incentives and political coercion have completely failed. Their only option now is military intimidation, but that will only push Taiwan further into the embrace of the U.S. .”

He Tianmu believes that while it is highly unlikely that China will attack Taiwan or U.S. aircraft and personnel by force, it may impose various diplomatic and economic penalties on the United States, and PLA aircraft may conduct dangerous military maneuvers to stop Pelosi’s visit by conducting aggressive military demonstrations near Taiwan.

Will Xi Jinping risks the Death of the Party and the State by attacking Taiwan?

However, Oriana Skylar Mastro, a researcher specializing in Chinese military and security policy at Stanford University’s Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies, argues that the time is not yet ripe for a Chinese attack on Taiwan by force. “First of all, [a Chinese attack on Taiwan] would not be a reaction to U.S. behavior. China does not want to make last minute plans. They have had to consider a possible U.S. intervention from the beginning. They will plan to wage this war at the time and place that is most advantageous to China.”

Mei Huilin noted, “Second, Xi Jinping needs to consolidate control and definitely does not want to do this before the 20th Congress. And then after the 20th Congress, China may need more years of rehearsal. I think the Chinese attack on Taiwan will be a few years from now.”

Robert Ross, a fellow at Harvard University’s Fairbanks Center for Chinese Studies and professor of political science at Boston College, agrees that China currently lacks the capability to successfully conduct an amphibious operation and occupy Taiwan, and can only create a crisis rather than a war, “I think China is trying to create a crisis that is designed to send a signal to the United States and Taiwan: you are risking war, and you need to think twice about Taiwan policy and the trajectory of U.S.-Taiwan relations.”

Joseph Bosco, former director of China affairs for the U.S. Department of Defense, told Voice of America that if China attacked Pelosi’s plane or acted otherwise out of control, it would trigger an all-out, real war between the U.S. and China and would be devastating to Xi Jinping and even to the survival of the Communist Party.

“(If the situation in the Taiwan Strait) escalates out of control, it would mean the end of China’s economic recovery, possibly the end of Xi Jinping’s regime, and the end of the entire Chinese Communist Party. It would be a real disaster for China if they make any aggressive act that leads to an out-of-control escalation. I hope these guys who are speaking irresponsibly will be restrained and be told to keep quiet by Beijing. They should allow the U.S. and Taiwan have this diplomatic meeting, let it go peacefully and then it will be business as usual.” Bosco said.

To prevent a crisis in the Taiwan Strait from erupting and worsening, Fischer suggested that the United States urgently needs to send hundreds or even thousands of missiles, ammunition, guns and supplies to Taiwan to ensure it can fight for months, as well as deploy troops to Japan and get immediate consent from Japan and South Korea to deploy tactical nuclear weapons.

“If the United States takes these steps, we can avoid (war) and convince Xi Jinping that he will lose any war he tries to start in Northeast Asia or the Taiwan Strait.” Fischer said.

媒体指佩洛西将抵台湾,台海军事决战一触即发?

2022年8月2日 08:18

华盛顿 — 

美国国会众议院议长南希∙佩洛西(Nancy Pelosi)公布的亚洲行程未列入台湾,但多家西方媒体披露,佩洛西将于8月2日抵达台湾。连日来,中国不断对此发出军事威胁。部分军事专家认为习近平不会在二十大召开前贸然攻台,但也有专家建议美国和台湾政府做好军事准备,应对中国对佩洛西和台湾可能发动的攻击。

美国媒体《华尔街日报》、美国有线电视新闻网CNN星期一(8月1日)披露称,正在亚洲访问的佩洛西已经确定将前往台湾。英国《金融时报》报道称,佩洛西预计将于周三会见台湾总统蔡英文。

美国国务卿布林肯(Antony Blinken)1日表示,美国国会是一个独立的、平等的政府分支,是否访台的决定取决于佩洛西,而且之前也有美国国会议长和许多国会议员访问台湾。

“如果议长决定访问台湾,而中国试图制造某种危机或加剧紧张局势,北京将要负完全责任。”他说, “如果议长决定访问,我们期望他们采取负责任的行动,接下来不要从事任何升级行动。”

中共会否刺杀佩洛西?

中国解放军东部战区星期一发布题为“严阵以待,听令而战”的视频,涉及海、陆、空军等作战和宣誓画面,并打出“埋葬一切来犯之敌,向着联战胜战前进”的宣传口号。

中国官媒《环球时报》前总编胡锡进此前威胁击落佩洛西访台座机,他于本周一发推文称,“让她去台湾吧,但(她应该在)出发前祈祷:祝自己一路平安,希望自己不要被历史定义为一个发起螺旋式升级进程的罪人,将军事摩擦扩大为大规模的台海战争。”

美国国际评估与战略中心高级研究员费舍尔(Richard Fisher)对美国之音表示,“中国想要全世界和所有美国人相信,他们有权谋杀美国总统继任者中排名第三的佩洛西,光这一点就足以构成战争行为。”

“极为重要的是美国和台湾政府做好准备,对中国刺杀佩洛西的企图进行军事回应。中国威胁要杀死佩洛西的事实证明,美国对中国实施制裁将是正当的,(美国应)遣返来自中国的学生、停止所有从中国飞往美国的航班,并与美国的盟友尤其是日本和欧洲的盟友合作,实施渐进的经济制裁,孤立中国经济。”费舍尔说。

他呼吁道,“不管世界做什么,中国都会攻击台湾的自由人民。中国不能这样做。中国人必须明白,对台湾发动战争就是对整个自由世界宣战,自由世界将作出回应。”

费舍尔认为,中国还有可能试图用反舰弹道导弹攻击南中国海的美国海军,但目前在巴士海峡以东的美国里根号航母打击群不足以产生足够威慑力。

“中国有两种类型的远程弹道导弹可以用来完成这项任务,发射20、30、40枚这些导弹将击沉航空母舰。我不认为中国人会被南中国海的一个美国航母战斗群吓倒。现在他们可能会被冲绳的50架F-22战斗机吓阻,另外还有150架驻扎在其他日本基地的战斗机。但很抱歉,一艘航空母舰无法胜任这项工作。”他说。

美国兰德公司国防问题高级研究员何天睦(Timothy Heath)通过电邮对美国之音表示,佩洛西此行的确可能引发军事危机,“台湾拒绝统一,而北京通过经济激励和政治胁迫来争取台湾的努力完全失败,唯一的选择是军事恐吓,但这只会将台湾进一步推向美国怀抱。”

何天睦认为,虽然中国极不可能武力攻击台湾或美国的飞机和人员,但可能会对美国实行各种外交和经济惩罚、解放军飞机可能会为阻止佩洛西的访问而开展危险的军事演练,在台湾附近进行咄咄逼人的军事演示。

习近平冒亡党亡国风险攻台?

然而,斯坦福大学弗里曼·史波格利国际问题研究所(Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies)专门研究中国军队和安全政策的研究员梅惠琳(Oriana Skylar Mastro)则认为,中国武力攻台的时机目前还不成熟,“首先,(中国攻台)不会是对美国行为做出的反应。中国不想制定最后一分钟计划,不得不从一开始就考虑美国,他们将计划在对中国最有利的时间和地点发动这场战争。”

梅惠琳指出,“第二,习近平需要巩固控制权,绝对不想在二十大之前做这件事。然后二十大之后,中国可能需要更多年的演练。我认为,中国攻台会是在几年之后。”

哈佛大学费正清中国研究中心研究员、波士顿学院(Boston College)政治学教授陆伯彬(Robert Ross)也认为,中国目前缺乏成功进行两栖作战并占领台湾的能力,仅能制造危机而非战争,“我认为中国在努力制造一场危机,目的是向美国和台湾发出信号:你们正冒着战争的危险,对于台湾政策和美台关系的轨迹需要三思而后行。”

前美国国防部中国事务主任博斯科(Joseph Bosco)对美国之音表示,如果中国攻击佩洛西的飞机或者做出其他失控行为,将引发美中之间全面的、真正的战争,对习近平乃至共产党的存活也会带来毁灭性打击。

“(如果台海局势)失控升级,这将意味着中国经济复苏的终结,可能意味着习近平政权的终结,以及整个中国共产党的终结。对中国来说将是一场真正的灾难,如果他们发动任何侵略导致情势升级失控。我希望这些说话不负责任的家伙能够受到北京的约束、保持安静,让美国和台湾进行这场外交会晤,让它和平进行然后一切照旧。”博斯科说。

为了防止台海危机的爆发和恶化,费舍尔建议,美国亟需向台湾运送数百甚至数千枚导弹、弹药、枪支以及确保可以战斗数月的物资,还应向日本部署部队,并且立即获得日本和韩国的同意来部署战术核武器。

“如果美国采取这些步骤,我们可以避免(战争)并且说服习近平,他将输掉在东北亚或台湾海峡试图发动的任何战争。”费舍尔说。
