World War 3 Could Be Triggered ‘At Any Time – China Warns

World War Three could be triggered ‘at any time’, China warns as it sent dozens of warplanes into Taiwan’s airspace.

Collusion’ between the US and Taiwan was so ‘audacious’ that the situation ‘has almost lost any room for manoeuvre, teetering on the edge of a face-off,’ an article in the state-backed Global Times newspaper says.

The report claimed that the people of China were ready to back all-out war with the US, which backs Taiwan, warning the island nation against ‘playing with fire’.

Taiwan, a democracy which considers itself a sovereign state, urged China and president Xi Jinping to put a halt to ‘proactive actions’ after nearly 150 Chinese warplanes breached Taiwan’s airspace since Friday, including 56 jets on Monday in a dramatic increase in aggression.

Taiwanese president Tsai Ing-wen on Tuesday vowed to ‘do whatever it takes’ to guard Taiwan against invasion as she indicated that without help from the country’s allies ‘authoritarianism has the upper hand over democracy.’

Meanwhile, Britain’s HMS Queen Elizabeth was shown in pictures sailing in the Philippine Sea in a joint exercise with two US aircraft carriers – the USS Ronald Reagan and USS Carl Vinson – and Japan’s helicopter destroyer JS Ise.

In an article published on Tuesday, Tawain’s president Tsai said:

“They should remember that if Taiwan were to fall, the consequences would be catastrophic for regional peace and the democratic alliance system.

“It would signal that in today’s global contest of values, authoritarianism has the upper hand over democracy.”

Taiwan hopes for peaceful coexistence with China, she said, but ‘if its democracy and way of life are threatened, Taiwan will do whatever it takes to defend itself.’

Tsai’s government on Monday urged Beijing to stop ‘irresponsible provocative actions’ after the warplanes breached Taiwan’s air defence identification zone (ADIZ).
