Unification With Taiwan Peacefully or Through Force?

-- Wei Jingsheng



The most lively things on the Internet in China now are the scandals of celebrities and dissidents.  As long as something is suspected to prevent Xi Jinping from becoming an emperor, all kinds of scandals will happen immediately and your social status would be dead.  But internationally, the most lively issue is the crisis across the Taiwan Strait.  This is not only related to the world, but also to the future of us the Chinese.  The cries and screams have been going on more than 70 years now, but it's still not clear whether the issue will resolve with a peaceful unification or military takeover.


Over the years, Xi Jinping has exercised military reunification while continuously proclaiming that he will not give up peaceful reunification.  So the Western analysts and the media are a little confused.  The reason that they are confused is that they all live in a trustworthy environment, and they habitually believe that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) also follows the famous saying of Confucius: people cannot stand without trust.


Regrettably, the Communist regime follows Deng Xiaoping’s famous saying: No matter black cat or white cat, catching mice is a good cat.  In the words of scholars, it is pragmatism; only the results matter regardless of the process.  Therefore, in the eyes of ordinary people in mainland China who are familiar with the Communist regime, reunification peacefully and reunification through the force are all the truth, depending on the timing, conditions, and needs.


Let's take a look at the conditions first.  The most unfavorable condition is the international environment.  The wolf warrior diplomacy over the recent years has caused anger and resentment.  It can be said that this makes the Communist regime take the blame at every turn.  If another war is launched, it will be opposed by the whole world.  By then, the West will collectively assist Taiwan, and neighboring countries will look for trouble, and there will be no chance of winning.  It is very likely that the Chinese Communist regime will collapse and disintegrate like the Soviet Union.


The second unfavorable condition is the Communist regime’s corrupt governance of its military.  This has caused disconcertment among its officers and soldiers, and their combat effectiveness has dropped drastically.  The promotion of the military officers also follows the rule of reverse elimination, with corruption as the mainstay and flattery as a supplement.  The authority and military literacy of most officers are close to zero.  And fear of death because of love for money has become a universal law.  Can such a military deal with the Eight-Power Allied Forces?  History has already given lessons for the past.  Relying on inciting civil boxers can only have a negative effect.


The third disadvantage is that Xi Jinping's recklessness in Hong Kong has warned the people of Taiwan.  This has led to its decades-long United Front spy infiltrations suddenly to be destroyed.  The hope of peaceful reunification is dwindling.  In addition to helping the Democratic Progressive Party win its election campaign, it has become a poison for KMT’s election in Taiwan.  In this regard, the Taiwanese businessmen and star performers who love money like their lives can't help much.  Buying them is just a waste of money.


In short, the flatterers around Xi Jinping will list countless favorable conditions to fool him.  If no one inside of the CCP is a real brave man, then it will only accelerate the collapse of the Communist regime.  I have no objection, the sooner the better.  But I only worry about the Soviet model.


Regarding the needs, China does not need to “liberate” Taiwan to protect its core interests.  This self-evident truth does not need to be explained to a bunch of fanatical ignoramuses.  But do the CCP and Xi Jinping have this need?  That is something else.


During the most dangerous and difficult period of the Red Army period (from the 1920’s to 1930’s), the CCP needed to hype up against foreign enemies to relieve itself by establishing an anti-Japanese united front.  Has the current CCP reached the moment of almost extinction?  Maybe not.  Then the issue is only whether Xi Jinping needs it or not.  If he thinks it is necessary to rely on a war to defend his emperor's status, it is not impossible for him to take the risk to launch a war which he has no chance of winning.  It doesn't matter what the rest is: Après moi, le déluge?  Without Xi's future, it cannot be called as a future.


Therefore, the people of Taiwan must support their government and strengthen various military and diplomatic measures to consolidate their national defense.  In particular, we must prevent the CCP from brainwashing public opinion and media.  What is an opportunity for Xi Jinping and the CCP?  It is the fools of Taiwanese businessmen and spies who make money more important than security, and they think that they are wise enough to play a united front game with the CCP in Mainland China.  This is the opportunity for unification by force.


When most people are immersed in the dream of pacifism, do you think the CCP will have the patience to wait?  Under that situation, the top CCP leaders who are now opposing war will also change their minds.  This is what they think as the best time for unification by force.  Fortunately, Han Kuo-yu (of the KMT) was not elected, and Xi Jinping missed Ma Ying-jeou's final term (as the President).  That was also because Xi's position was not stable at that time, and he did not have enough power despite his will.
