Military intervention in Taiwan becomes commonplace in Chinese communication

In just a few months, the Chinese international press, largely controlled by the country's central government, has profoundly changed its discourse concerning the tensions around the island of Taiwan, but also in the China Sea against the US Navy, and against the Indian Navy. While at the start of the year, the tone was more one of denouncing American "provocations" in the region, which could create exaggerated tensions, it now refers, in a precise and almost banal manner, to a military intervention against the independent island, as well as the probable outbreak of a conflict between Beijing and Washington or New Delhi.

We had already discussed the subject a few weeks ago, on the occasion of the highly publicized arrival of the first Rafale in India, when the Chinese press was quick to draw up a comparison between the French plane and its J-20, on highly questionable criteria. It then appeared that Beijing was preparing public opinion for a possible confrontation between the two Asian giants in Ladakh, and was using all the “tricks” of state propaganda what are his. Today, the pattern is exactly the same regarding a possible military intervention to regain military control of the island of Taiwan, and face an intervention by the US Navy to come to the aid of its ally.
