TC bullshit aside.

It look like they don't have assets to impose a blockade but still impressive display that can send the world into chaos again.

So what assets are China lacking to impose a total blockade of Taiwan? That’s what the woman in the video is saying but they never say what assets they are lacking. Are they just making things up to make China appear to be weak?

China will never do this unless their domestic situation gets so bad that they have to distract everyone with nationalism.

A blockade of the Strait of Malacca would depirve China of 80% of their oil instantly and starve their economy.

When the northern passage opens up after the ice caps melt around 2040 is when they might invade since Russia can ship them oil from the North.

-Para I don't know the ratio of ship-port that makes a blockade effective but the fact that the training zones don't cover all Taiwan ports is telling.


-Dukhat It'd be a stupid war but when has that stopped anyone. China's military has far outgrown it's economy in the last decade with major investments in its Navy. In 2010 they had zero aircraft carriers now they have three.

They had a space launch like 20 years ago or something, I swear on TCs life they released a new video of the successful launch pre maturely, so no matter what they were prepared to claim it was succesful.

Ive looked and looked, cant find the video. It was on the old Utopia.

Scrubbed.

Blockades need very little. Insurance enforces blockades voiding coverage in defined conflict areas.

It is incredibly hard to create a competent navy. The French beheaded all their officers during their first revolution and it took their navy several generations to recover.

The Chinese are attempting to create a navy from scratch which requires them to create a competent officer corps and an effective command hierarchy. Military Organizations also need to periodically fight conflicts in order to learn from mistakes and improve their competency.

The Soviets had the 2nd-best military in the world until the 90s and look at how it's gone to shit within a generation and periodic conflicts to test it like the Checnya war.

China hasn't done shit with their navy and their organization is new. Offense is also like 10x harder than defense which complicates their strategic aims even farther since the US is in way more ports than China.

The one thing they have going for them is that their people are literally cochroaches and they will throw away tens of millions of men (ala The Children) and nobody would miss them, not even their own families.
