Report: Taiwan Crisis Likely This Year

There will likely be a crisis in the Taiwan Strait this year, according to a survey of 87 American and Taiwanese experts released on Monday.

This would further destabilize an already tense world and could be a major blow to the United States’ global reputation.

Context: China wants control of Taiwan. It has an “anti-secession” law that states Taiwan must be taken by force if negotiations fail.

Details: The survey, conducted by the Center for Strategic and International Studies, gathered opinions from:

  • Experts with experience in the U.S. government and academics
  • Think tank experts who have testified in Congress

The survey concluded a cross-strait crisis would likely take shape in a naval blockade or quarantine, not a military invasion.

The big picture: For decades, Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry has warned that Taiwan will fall into Chinese hands. Read “Taiwan Betrayal” to learn more.
