"That's the very latest. I'm Jim Forbes This is Bloomberg daybreak weekend. Our global look ahead of the top stories for investors in the coming week. I'm John Tucker in New York. We'll be tracking U.S. China relations very closely in the coming week to find out why, let's head to our Bloomberg 99 one newsroom in Washington and Amy Morris. Amy. Thank you, John tension between the U.S. and China over Taiwan is on the rise and it's not just Taiwan. National security adviser Jake Sullivan this past week said he expects President Biden will be speaking with Chinese president Xi Jinping in the coming weeks because tensions are soaring between the two powers. Let's get more details now Bloomberg national security reporter Peter Martin joins us. Peter, thank you for taking the time with us. We really appreciate it. Sure. Good to be here. China becoming increasingly problematic, signaling that it views the Taiwan strait as its territory in the U.S. and other NATO countries seeing things a bit differently. Can you bring us up to speed with this? Yeah, so U.S. officials have been alarmed in recent weeks and months as Chinese officials have put forward this framing for the Taiwan strait where they claim that it's not international waters. And it's unclear what that means. It's a standing which doesn't have a claim that doesn't have very much ground in legal language, but there's a sort of implicit implication there that these are our waters and perhaps the U.S. should stay out. So the U.S. side has been trying to sort of probe that and figure out what they really mean. Is there some sort of vulnerability here? Does China see an opportunity because the U.S. and Europe are dealing with the war in Ukraine? Well, I think that's the fear of U.S. officials. In the past, some of China's territorial pushes have tended to come when they're probing a new U.S. administration, traffic around whether they're a weaknesses and at the moment, of course, the eyes of the world are very much focused on Eastern Europe and Ukraine. And so there is this idea that perhaps China wants to act while the U.S. is distracted. Of course, it's impossible to know what Beijing was true intentions are here, but that's certainly one big fear. I know that when Russia invaded Ukraine back in February, there was a lot of talk about, oh my goodness, if we don't do something, that's going to be a signal that China can possibly pull this off with Taiwan. That got temped out down pretty quickly, are those concerns rising as well? Well, I think those concerns are kind of there in the background in the sense that the administration says if Russia is able to get away with this action in Ukraine, the fear is that Beijing will think it could do the same. I don't think many people in the administration believe that a Chinese invasion is imminent and it is not that kind of thing. It's more like what's the kind of signal that America and its allies are spending here about what countries can get away with and what they can't get away with. And I think that's the big focal point. So then talk to us about NATO and the NATO strategic concept, if you will. How important is that for the U.S. in terms of countering China? Well, you know, I think that the U.S. leaders really see China's economy is growing. And the U.S. proportion of the economy globally is shrinking China's military spending is growing and this is realization that the U.S. can take on China if it does so with all of its allies and partners and it's going to be a struggle to do it if it can't. And so bringing along organizations like the EU like NATO and showing China that actually the U.S. does have partners on its side. It's not a voice in the wind standing up to China. That's really important. And it's something that Beijing responds to very much. It is the U.S. alliance network and NATO of course is the premier military alliance that the U.S. has its finger tips. And so it's pretty important from that respect. Now, we did have the U.S. and China opened the door to some high level talks when Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin met with China's defense minister in Singapore. And they talked about quite a number of things, including the possibility of putting up some guardrails, maybe to keep the relationship from spiraling out of control. Does that sort of indicate that China sees it the same way the U.S. sees it that something has to be done to tamp down these tensions? I mean, I think both sides want to make sure that there is channels of communication that work between the leaders between the defense ministries and the top diplomats on each side. I think one can burn for U.S. policymakers. Is that in the past, China has tried to sort of use these mechanisms and these dialogs as a way to get confessions from the U.S.. The U.S. policymakers are a very emphatic on the point that we're not doing this as a favor to you. This is something that's in your interest and it's an RH interest with two big nuclear powers, there are areas where we disagree about territory and they're competing claims that U.S. partners and allies the China and the South China Sea. There's a Taiwan issue. There's Japan's competition with China in the East China Sea and there's a desire on the part of Washington to make sure that none of those things cause the U.S. into a conflict. But it doesn't need to get involved in, but at the same time to make sure that that's not seen as some kind of special favor to China. And we are talking with Bloomberg national security reporter Peter Martin about the rising tensions between the U.S. and China. Peter now, let's look ahead toward a meeting that we could see between the U.S. and China on the sidelines of the G 20 conference later in July, Secretary of State Antony Blinken could have a face to face with China's foreign minister in Bali. So what would that dialog look like and how would that meeting go? I gotta assume it wouldn't be public with reporters and cameras it's probably off to the side in a small conference room somewhere with some translators. But how will that go? What does it look like? Well, you know, I think the administration has been trained to set up the whole series of channels, right? National security adviser Jake Sullivan has been engaged in a dialog with his kind of counterpart on the Chinese side, young jets, China's top diplomat, as you said, there's the channel between the two defense ministers, The Pentagon chief and the Chinese defense minister. And then there's this link between Chinese foreign minister

Gordon Chang Describes China's View of the Russia-Ukraine War

"Heard two different interpretations of how Putin's latest military action affects Beijing. One is it would be used as cover. It would be used to distract from a move against Taiwan and second I'm hearing that the international reaction to Russia, the arming of Ukraine has given strategic pause to Xi Jinping. Can we tell which of those is more accurate? Are they are they happy that Putin did what he did or are they annoyed at how sloppy he's been in the execution of the invasion. I think that Beijing looks at the Ukraine and they take away a number of lessons some which encourage them to be more aggressive. Some of them inhibit inhibit them. But I think that on balance, they've been emboldened. And the reason is that first of all, and this is the most important lesson. There was the greatest breakdown in deterrence since the start of the Second World War. Although the United States, the 27 nations of the European Union and Great Britain had an economy 25.1 times bigger than Russia's in 2021. We failed to stop that invasion. So you have a far weaker party. Basically defy the world. And they got away with it so far. And I think China looks at that and says that we would similarly fail to deter China that we don't have the willingness to use our power. The other thing is that although there have been sanctions on Russia, those sanctions have not been as effective as people had hoped. Russia's ruble is doing okay. They're selling a lot of loyal. By the way, to China. And so I think that the Chinese believe that, look, the west can't enforce sanctions. And by the way, the Chinese are so arrogant these days. They think that we wouldn't impose sanctions on them in the first place or that they would be able to skate by them. So I think that the only thing that they look at at Putin and our irritated is that Putin may have delayed their plans for attacking a neighbor,

Understanding the Importants of Taiwan

"I have a couple of questions for you because I'm not an expert on foreign policy and it's just doesn't sound right when president Joe Biden goes out and says he's going to defend Taiwan militarily. It seems inconsistent with what we would normally do. Obviously we would help fund them and their military action, but I want you to explain it to the audience because is this a bad thing that President Biden said this or is he right on track with his comments? Yeah, it's a great question. And so I was in the military for 25 years. And after that, I've been doing foreign policy national security heritage for almost 20 years. And been all over the world, talk to people all over the world in the Taiwan before. So here's the reality. This is the cold reality. And this is actually been true since the 1950s. Since Dwight Eisenhower was the president of the United States. The reality is the United States would fight to keep China from taking over Taiwan. And here's why. Taiwan is the key island in what's called the first island chain. If the Chinese government controlled everything from Taiwan down to the South China seas, essentially they could deny the United States access to the entire Asian continent.

Biden’s Taiwan Comments Create Confusion on International Stage

"Right, I want to turn to what else is happening right now at the Democrats and this administration, because you know, presence making some pretty bold statements. On what would happen if we saw China trying to interviewing too much in Taiwan? And he basically said, I would take action. And that was a pretty bold statement. That was unlike anything that we've heard before because he tends to not want to put himself out there in front of these things. And a lot of people believe that this could be a mistake. So Biden's over there in Japan. And he's, you know, doing this. You're not supposed to call it a trade deal because they want to make sure everybody knows it's not some kind of free trade deal. It's a deal to strengthen our economic relations over their in Asia and hopefully hopefully have better relationships with certain countries that aren't China, right? So that we can stand up and have more of a presence against China. Anyway, he was asked about Taiwan and whether or not military involvement would ever be necessary to defend Taiwan and I want to share with you what he said. Yes, that's the commitment we made. We agree with the one China policy we signed onto it and all the attendant agreements made from there, but the idea that it can be taken by force just taken by force is just not appropriate. Okay, so that's kind of a big news flash, right? Because everybody's been a little bit worried about the whole Taiwan situation, given what's happened with Ukraine and Russia and everybody wants to see whether or not President Biden will stand up for Taiwan and stand up to China. Apparently he didn't tell his staff.

I'll tell you why. The one China policy is increasingly a dead letter. I wish it weren't, but that was a change that was really brought about by Xi Jinping at the 70th or I guess it was a hundredth anniversary of the communist party last year. And when posed with this kind of direct question in the midst of the Ukrainian war, if he had said anything other than that, I think it would have been a moment like 1950 when ambiguity from the United States invited Korean communist aggression in Korea.

"Can you explain a little bit to me what you and senator hirano are up to? Well, I think we see the region in the whole indo Pacific is extremely strategic and vital to America. We see China's very aggressive posture, just look what they recently done in the Solomon island. Signing a security agreement with the Solomon Islands that they are trying to use their typical means of corruption, the debt trap diplomacy they deploy, et cetera, to get more of these smaller nations to fall their way, whether it's to put pressure on Taiwan, whether it's to get more votes in these multilateral organizations like the United Nations. I think the United States needs to be more present and we need to have more connectivity in that region. We certainly have a major presence in Japan. You're well aware of you and I have talked about it many times before, but the largest component of U.S. Military stationed anywhere is based in Japan, why served as U.S. ambassador, most recently, and we have incredible strategic interest in the region. It's a vital area for growth, the busy sea lanes in the world and East China Sea, South China Sea, our interests are very much aligned with keeping a free and open region there in the Pacific.

Why Racism Is Never the True Story of Mass Shootings

"In Texas the day after the buffalo attack a shootout between 5 Hispanic men at a crowded, flea market, left two dead and three wounded. Roughly two hours later in California, a 68 year old Asian gunman walked into a Taiwan east church and opened fire, killing one person and wounding 5 others. This is what crime looks like in America. It is chaotic, disordered, and irreducible. The skin color of its victims and perpetrators is far from fixed. Racism then is not the whole story, in fact, racism has never been the whole story. Yet faced with an election year in an uphill battle to retain the House and Senate this November, perhaps it is unsurprising that so many Democrats are keen to turn the buffalo shooting into another George Floyd moment. That's perfect. Perfect. An excuse to deflect difficult questions and to turn politics into a binary realm of good and evil once again we're told Evie or with us or you're a racist.

"taiwan" Discussed on Bro History

"So in order to get us to come back to the deal, you got to do something for us. So it's really it's tough to it's a tough situation there. And I don't feel like it's getting much attention, but it's something that at least with Taiwan, I feel like the issue is clear. Even to most Americans who pay attention like they're aware of what Taiwan is, they're aware that China wants Taiwan. And China would need to militarily go and get them. And so it's not that confusing of an issue. But the politics and the covert activity and the cyber warfare that goes on between Iran and Israel. And that whole situation is just very, very opaque, very complicated. And I think it would be easier to coax the American public into a war over there with Iran than it would be Taiwan. But that's just speculation. The public polling data on that is not super clear, but it just seems like first glance probably. Unless you think about Iraq or excuse me, Iran is that Iran would just be, I don't think it would be equally as horrific, obviously with a war with China because China has nuclear arms. But it is easier to roll off the table of war with war with China because you can just be like, well, they have there have nuclear bombs. We can't do that. We just need to this is civilization we're talking about, like, who cares? And also, there's enough big business interest. There's enough markets. There's enough business interest that wants access to Chinese markets where they wouldn't be behind a war. I mean, yeah, the military industrial complex is very powerful. However, we're talking about the MIC versus the rest of big business. The rest of the big business is going to win. You know, it's like the Israel lobby is very powerful as well. But the Israel lobby versus the will of the rest of the world..

"It's going to land in a precise area at a speed where they won't know what happened until it wipes out their entire civilization. Yeah, you would not even have time to consciously process that. Literally move too fast. I mean, it's crazy. I'm always blown away by the fact that we have no more access to material resources today than did the early humans 50,000 years ago. We just have solid. Of knowledge with the application of knowledge. We've been able to synthesize skyscrapers, hypersonic ballistic missiles. We can grow organs and meet in Petri dishes and it's just amazing. It really is amazing. And it's funny to Henry's point or most advanced our biggest advances have been in the art of killing people. And then some of our other biggest achievements are just offshoots of our endeavor to kill people, like going to space is just an offshoot of ballistic missiles. You know? And satellites is just like GPS and Uber is just an offshoot of trying to kill people. The Internet, the Internet is just an offshoot of trying to kill people, which actually. That's actually a really good transition because there's another thing you said that I wanted to talk about, which is the cyber warfare part. Didn't want to leave that out there without a response. So I actually really agree with you on this front. I think that's probably the most the easiest maybe not easy. I want to say it that way. I think it's probably the clearest way to mess with us. Or to mess with Taiwan is to go cyber. Can they penetrate Taiwan's infrastructure, how much of Taiwan's defense systems can be penetrated through the Internet without even going anywhere? And how well can the Chinese mask the fact that they're doing that? Obviously, everyone's going to know it's China, right?.

"You can imagine, they're prepared. They know where they're going to land, right? Or at least one of 13 places, or a couple of 13 places, right? The Taiwanese are definitely going to see an invasion coming literally a hundred miles away because they're a hundred miles away. So I got this quote from that article and I'll just read it really quickly. So they say Taiwanese American and Japanese leaders will know that the PLA is preparing for a cross strait war more than 60 days before the hostilities begin. They will know for certain that an invasion will happen more than 30 days before the missiles are fired. This will give Taiwanese ample time to move much of their command and control infrastructure and hardened mountain tunnels, move their fleet out of vulnerable ports, detain suspected agents and intelligence operatives, litter the ocean with sea mines. And blah, blah, blah blah blah. They'll have time to prepare. And the reason why they'll know this is because literally satellites. You don't move a million men from China to Taiwan without something happening that you can see with a satellite, right? There's just way too many people. We do many things mood around, they're gonna know. They're just gonna know. I want intents to totally adopt a gorilla style defense in the event of an invasion. So kind of like how the Taliban did in a stand or any of the insurgencies in Iraq and nearby places. So but the difference between the Middle East and Afghanistan and their gorilla style and Taiwan's will be the Taiwan is like a first world nation that is extremely well equipped, better trained, and they're going to have a heads up that it's coming. So they're going to dig in. Taiwan has rockets too. They're also going to use them. They're going to use them to hit the places where the Chinese will embark to go to Taiwan. They're going to use them to hit radar stations. They're going to use them to hit just ships that are in the water coming over, right? They're going to use their rockets as well. There's nothing nothing special. And then Taiwan also wants to use mines. I think I've mentioned that before, which is kind of controversial. Because they're kind of hard to decommission after you've put them out there. But they fully intend to use them. And this one is the most interesting one that I found out. I don't know Joseph are you a Game of Thrones fan? Oh yeah..

"So the PLA, the Chinese army is going to use their rocket force, and they're going to launch rockets against Taiwan initially to just wreck infrastructure. And they'll do this well before any invasion. And they're going to hit things like air fields, communication hubs, radar equipment, the like, right? They also plan on using sleeper agents in Taiwan or maybe some special forces. And there's the hammering. I don't know if you guys can hear the hammer. The hammering. I'm gonna bring out your spring out your bring out your inner Lorenz O'Donnell. Yeah, we've talked about him before. The hammering. All right, where was I? So they're going to use some sleeper agents in Taiwan and probably. Hey, Henry, I have this written down. Do you want to just read it for me for a second while they can commence their hammering? Well, all right, let me bring up something. So in Taiwan, from the polling I saw that most Taiwanese people, they see themselves as Taiwanese and not Chinese. I don't know Joseph. Have you ever seen anything like that? What's your take on that? As far as the people of Taiwan, how much influence do they want China to have or are they okay with that? What's that look like? Well, there was an indigenous population and part of it was Han Chinese, but this goes back many, many centuries, you know, a millennia. The first note of Taiwan in any of the imperial records is back in the 300 BC. So I mean, but the only real, it wasn't until the king dynasty that in the let's see the 17th century that they really started to interact. With Taiwan. And you started seeing more of the Han Chinese starting to integrate into that population. But Taiwan's history as you say is very complicated, but it is unquestionable that the majority of them do not want to join the Chinese union..

"Was a close observer and a supporter of the Falklands War, which is kind of weird because it just shows you how ancient this guy is. Right? One question that he was around the 80s and he's like, I was a student of the Falkland wars. I was a student. This guy is so old. This guy is it's been around because you have to remember his political career started very early, like what it was he elected when he was in his 30, 31. Yeah. Yeah, and he was a water game, baby. Yeah. So, like, I mean, man, his roots go back deep. And so that's the first thing I thought of. But then, you know, you say, the lesson learned is that Britain's strategic and ambiguity. So there is a level of confusion of what they would actually do if Argentina invaded the island. And his policy towards Taiwan, the fact that just a couple of weeks ago, Biden said, you know, our commitment to Taiwan is rock solid, effectively breaking our strategic ambiguity that strategy that we've had for the past 5 decades or so, you know, the strategy of where we don't really say outright, we're going to be defend Taiwan, but we're not going to tell China that we're not going to defend China, Taiwan, just to keep everyone confused. So I guess you were saying that in order to prevent a war with China, Biden is what Biden thinks. In order to prevent a war with China, he thinks that he needs to be crystal clear about what the U.S. would do if they actually tried something militarily. Yes. Yeah. And there's actually interviews that you can go back and watch from 1982. He gave a lot of interviews because he was actually the author of the bill drafted and adopted the resolution adopted that said we are on the British side of this conflict..

"Actually, the center for strategic studies, part of the army college. They've written numerous papers and articles about it. So it is a very out of the way place. It was a very small conflict. It lasts 74 days from start to finish. It was a blip on the Cold War radar. So most people don't know about it. And the conflict itself isn't that important for what it did, which, as you said, it basically destroyed the junta in Argentina and guaranteed that Margaret Thatcher would get reelected. But in terms of the parallels, there really aren't any parallels even close to his analogous to the situation between the mainland and Taiwan as the Falklands malvinas war. And so I just wanted to start with giving just a touch of background because most people don't know where the falcons are aren't aware that there was even a warning 1882. So the Falkland Islands are at the very southern tip of the cone of South America. They're on the east side. They're about 900 miles north of the Arctic of the Antarctic circle. So it's basically a pile of rocks. It's a few hundred small islands. There's two main islands, east and west Falklands. Basically, there weren't even any indigenous peoples there. I mean, they're very cold, very wet, poor soil. Basically, as the age of exploration got underway, multiple European explorers came upon these islands. And for the first basically a 150 years from about the mid 17th century to the late 18th century, it changed hands between the Spanish, the French, the British. And basically what happens is the British, I'm going to cut that part out because there's just a lot of back and forth there. But basically the British are there. And it's kind of out of the way. It's not that important. And the Revolutionary War happens. And they need to divert resources to go fight a bunch of angry Americans. And so they leave, but they leave this little plaque behind that says, hey, this is our island, so don't even think about it. And they mean to come right back, but of course the American Revolution takes a long time. Then they get that wrapped up and the wars of the French Revolution start. And then the Napoleonic Wars start. And in the meantime, of course, during the Napoleonic Wars, Napoleon invades Spain in deposes the monarch there, which sets off all the revolutions in South America. So the united Providence provinces of the Rio de la Plata based in Buenos Aires. This is basically Argentina. I'm just going to start calling it Argentina just to avoid any confusion. They basically allow this merchant named Rene to go to the islands and start running it as a commercial hub. And this is in the late 18 teens, and the British are kind of like yeah, whatever. He has some permission to everything. There's some whaling and things going on around there, ceiling, different things like that. Basically, the British find out that vernay has been appointed the governor of the island by the Buenos Aires elite. And that sets the British over the edge. And so they sail down. There were the ship..

"That taiwan finds himself in and provides a blue of leverage taiwan's over-sized economic importance. Might partly explain why the. Us has been busy. Arming the island to the teeth. In the past couple of years the white house under both the trump and biden administrations as provided around fifteen billion dollars worth of weapons to taiwan including dozens of fighter jets tanks and anti-aircraft missiles china's defense ministry has urged the us to stop own sales to taiwan defense ministry spokesperson sales grossly violated. One china principle. And the americans aren't the only ones providing backup. Japanese leaders who had remained silent on the issue for decades are now also speaking out about the need to defend taiwan. Japan's deputy prime minister says that if china invades taiwan japan needs to defend the island with the united states will the us. Japan and others have condemned china's military aggression towards taiwan. The canadian government as mostly tried to stay out of it last spring the halifax international security forum one of the world's most prestigious defense gatherings was planning to present its top award for leadership in public service to the taiwanese president signing win but when canadian officials learned of those plans they reportedly threatened to pull the government support and funding for the event. Worried that the move would further upset beijing now. Canada's defense minister denied that report but in response to the allegations the federal opposition parties called for a symbolic vote and the house of commons unanimously supported the halifax forums decision to give the award to president. Cy and that's exactly what they did. The halifax security forum announced the news in a video presentation highlighting her efforts to stand up to beijing in taiwan president signing win has won reelection with a record number of votes of this year. One this island to remain independent sign of and they think she's the president to do. The chinese government condemned the award and the vote of support by canadian parliament. Taiwan doesn't have its own nuclear weapons but the prospect of a fight hitting the united states and china two nuclear superpowers against each other as spawned plenty of frightening world war three doomsday predictions. But what would it actually look like. I think militarily it would be hard pressed to do anything about that's retired. Us brigadier general. Robert spalding the longtime air force. Pilot later became a senior. Us military defense official based in beijing. He then worked in the pentagon as a senior advisor to the chairman of the joint chiefs on china and senior director for strategy at the white house and the national security council. He was the chief architect of the u s national security strategy under the trump administration in short when it comes to the us. China and military strategy spalding knows what he's talking about and he predicts that china will indeed invade taiwan and soon. I think they have the capability to move today. I think they will move within the next five years. Just because it's something that xi jinping seizes parts part of his legacy and he says the us and its allies will be effectively powerless to stop it. The problem is that the chinese have nuclear weapons and so a direct consultation cochran conflict in the military sense with the united states. China's is terribly problematic and risky. So that's number one number two. I think As i said the chinese communist party has built the predominance of power so it should be a fairly quick. What people don't is the chinese built up literally thousands hundreds of thousands of munitions on their side of the of the taiwan strait so they can reach out touch every single american base in in the region. Really take it out with those weapons so it's It it would be impossible at this point for the us to mount much of a defensive taiwan using conventional weapons. Now could you know essentially talk about our nuclear umbrella. But i don't think that becomes credible Particularly when you don't have nuclear weapons on the island of taiwan late last year the us air force conducted a secret. Wargame testing how. It might repel chinese invasion of taiwan in the year. Twenty thirty in the end after much loss of life and equipment the us military was able to prevent a total takeover of taiwan by confining chinese forces to a single area though it's worth noting that some of the key technologies used during the exercise such as cargo planes capable of dropping pallets of guided munitions. Don't actually exist and similar wargames held over the previous two years ended in catastrophic losses for the us side. The americans and the taiwanese hope that the mere possibility of a u. s. military response will be enough to keep china at bay but spalding says the underwhelming. Us and western response to beijing's crackdown on hong kong as undermined any deterrent. Since message chinese communist party that they can do whatever they want. Ultimately spalding does not believe the. Us would risk nuclear war over taiwan and will basically leave the island to defend itself albeit with american. Made weapons. I think realistically since it most likely will involve loss live structure properties taiwan. The free world will stand up in unison and begin isolate communist china like they should have done a long time ago and i think ask be probably be the best outcome we all hope for. Unsurprisingly that outcome doesn't sit well with people in taiwan including raymond. Buxton the canadian living near the taiwanese airbase whom we met at the beginning of the episode. I worry do. I have any control. No do i have any hands. Should something happen yes agencies but he his friends and family all believe that well war is possible. It's extremely unlikely to tell you. Honestly i really just do not think at this point in time i mean. I read these articles in bloomberg at the new york times since the communists in on it's over they got all these generals it these military experts in this net near from washington in the pentagon being given briefs situation in asia pacific and there were there warning about a in warning about imminent action warning near thing. But they're actually not even here on the ground with your ears. Open listening to the people sort of thing. I mean asian. People do not want war. I don't believe in my heart. Heart set the chinese one to risk war with taiwan. But if there were an invasion all indications are that the people of taiwan would not go down without a fight in a press.

"Of their democratic achievements. they are proud to be arguably the most vibrant democracy. All all of these days i which serves as an example as an inspiration for a number of countries where democracy is either suffering are inexistent and taiwan's most recent presidential elections in two thousand twenty. The independence leaning democratic progressive party won re election by a landslide. Even the beijing-friendly opposition party is pro democracy and human rights. Taiwan was the first country to legalize. Same sex marriage of which are very proud as well so again the trend lines are moving in completely opposite direction contrast with developments in china he says most taiwanese themselves to be an independent nation. Because taiwan is already a sovereign states It has his own currency its military the ability to conduct diplomatic relations with the rest of the world. But cole says even those in favor of taiwan's independence are still wary of any attempt to make it official. They are okay for the time being a existing in that in that status will there is a vocal but still small minority of people would like the governments to move towards the urea independence positi through a referendum for example The current administration in taipei is not interested in moving in that direction knowing full. Well that could trigger a much more muscular action on the art of the regime back in back in beijing and those fears of provoking. A chinese military response are growing by the day. China is flexing its military might releasing through state media a flood of dramatic video clips. Like these they show chinese naval exercises that.

Seek a bright future of peaceful reunification in the same speech president. She also put forward an interesting proposal. Suggesting taiwan could join china under a so called one country two systems arrangement just like hong kong in the last episode. We covered how beijing promised to ensure that hong kong while rejoining china would still maintain. Its atonomy and it's democratic freedoms of speech and assembly for fifty years until the year twenty forty seven but over the past couple of years hong kong's one country two systems has come under attack always unit. That's ryan ho kilpatrick. He's a canadian. Who was born and spent most of his life in hong kong and he was living there working as a journalist until last january ninth. There anymore he like.

Where he says people watched hong kong in horror. Time on now see one Promise as fraud and no one really would be willing to say that anymore. As a team to china. J. michael cole. The canadian security analysts in taiwan says the events in hong kong are fueling fears that they might be next. Stay up at night sometimes. I mean it has gotten increasingly worrisome. So over the past eighteen months or so. We have seen increased military activity around taiwan We have seen hundreds of penetrations into taiwan's air defense identification zone in the south notts airspace. As is oftentimes wrongly reported in the news but still getting increasingly close to taiwan that is there's a psychological warfare component to these activities to try to intimidate. To course i wanna ease public. That also has not translated into You know a drop in the willingness of the taiwanese to stand up to defend their their way of life. The big question is is the only signaling on the part of the chinese regime or is that at we're as we're seeing increasingly in different analyses. Is that indeed preparation for war. The prospect of war of chinese military invasion as loomed large over taiwan for decades notwithstanding the fact that there is a growing threat of war and taiwan straight. This is not leads to a sense of alarm. such that would perhaps compel young taiwanese to joining the armed forces or to build up a proper resort forces india eventuality. That the chinese would they act and he says taiwan's apparent apathy towards national defense is also due in part to the belief that if china did the americans would come to the rescue issuing a stern warning to beijing. Us secretary of state anthony. Lincoln has said that. United states is concerned about china's aggressive actions against one in march of this year philip davidson a top. Us admiral in charge of the indo pacific command told congress but china is preparing to make. Its move i worry that. They're accelerating their ambitions supplant the united states and our leadership role in the rules-based international order which they've wanted that they want to do that by twenty fifty. I'm worried about them. Moving that target closer. Taiwan is clearly One of their ambitions. Before that. And i think the threat is manifest during this decade fact in the next six years if that happens if china were to invade taiwan. How would the us respond secretary of state anthony. Blinken was recently asked that very question on. Nbc's meet the press. It would be a serious mistake For anyone to try to change the status quo by force. Are we prepared to defend taiwan militarily. What we've seen. And what is a real concern to us is in increasingly aggressive actions by the government in beijing directed at taiwan raising tensions in the streets. And we have a commitment to taiwan. Under the taiwan relations act the taiwan relations act was enacted by the united states in nineteen seventy-nine. It does not guarantee that the us would intervene militarily if china attacked the island but it says the united states will make available to taiwan such defense articles and defense services in such quantity as may be necessary to enable taiwan to maintain sufficient self defense capabilities in other words. The us promises at the very least to help. Taiwan defend itself. The act says it would be up to the current president and congress to determine whether that involves sending american troops to join the fight. Besides it's written commitment. Under the taiwan relations act taiwanese historian james. Lynn says the. Us would also have an economic incentive to act town has been very successful especially in information technology and electronics industry. Taiwan is one of the world's top suppliers of leading edge computer chips semiconductors used in everything from smartphones and cars to us military equipment. And so this is a critical dependency. The night states sees taiwan cannot fall into the hands because so much of the us economy including so national security needs is dependent upon taiwanese manufactured semiconductors and so this tremendous global economic. Power complicates the position.

These are not Time he's very very tough people. I mean these people are a big island or small lining into big neighbour. Very tough neighbors and they just came out with a poll recently from the taiwanese news and they said that it said that over ninety percent of people on this island identify as taiwanese and a fight between the taiwanese people and china could spill far beyond the islands borders an island already determined to defend itself that could bring the us and china to all the reality is that i conflict iva. Taiwan could easily turn into nuclear war to understand why a small island of around twenty four million people risks sparking a world war. We need to quickly go back in time about seventy years china. August nineteen forty-five the defeat of the common enemy. Japan finds key areas of china held firmly by the communists in the late nineteen forties. China was in the midst of a brutal civil war between the ruling nationalists and the communists by nineteen forty nine. The chinese communist party had gained the upper hand taking control of the mainland october. First nineteen forty nine and vaping malcolm inaugurates the so called chinese people's republic a red china that is to emerge as a powerful and ruthless communist coequal of soviet russia. The communist victory celebrated with a display of captured. american arms. has been one in the face of what two years before seemed insurmountable obstacles. The leaders of the chinese nationalist party the komi dong fled to taiwan. The nearby island had been part of japan until the japanese surrender. Taiwan china at the end of the second world war a few years earlier it was mostly used for farming and agriculture. So the chinese nationalists took control of taiwan in nineteen forty nine and declared themselves the rightful rulers of china guangdong rules. Taiwan essentially exile claim that it is the republic of china even though it's only controlling one island on essentially rules that as almost two colonial regime. That's taiwanese historian james lynn. He says after. The nationalist party leaders fled to taiwan. The island quickly became caught up in the cold. War power struggle pitting the us and its allies against the soviet union and communist. China is the point where the united states really begin to see global communism as the largest existential threat to the united states presence in the world. And that's when the united states becomes really involved in protecting taiwan essentially bulwark against communist expansion. And so for the course of the cold war for past seventy years. The united states has been the staunchest ally of taiwan in order to shield. Taiwan from outwitted sees his communist expansion. Because of that american support. The chinese communist party was never able to take control of taiwan and the result has been a decades long stalemate the chinese communist party rules the mainland which it calls the people's republic of china while taiwan's leaders ruled the island which they call the republic of china in the early years both sides in beijing taipei claim to be the one true chinese government so for the early cold war period. This is from roughly. Let's say nineteen forty nine until about the nineteen eighty s or so. I would say that. Taiwan was known to the world as so-called free china and at first because taiwan had the support and recognition of the us and its allies. The island got to represent china on the world stage holding china's seat at the united nations for example but in the nineteen seventies that began to change. The chinese and the soviets had a falling out and the us started cozying up to china. The white house passed a new declaration. It so-called one china policy acknowledging beijing's position that there was only one chinese government in october nineteen. Seventy canada became one of the first western countries to officially recognize the people's republic of china in beijing. And before long the chinese communist party became the internationally recognised ruler of china. And this turning point for taiwan to begins become internationally isolated after that taiwan's status became even more ambiguous and at times confusing. Take for example. The tokyo summer olympics taiwan's men's doubles badminton team. Captured gold defeating the team from china. But because of an earlier agreement to placate the chinese communist party the international olympic committee awarded the gold medal to the team from chinese taipei. The name of the taiwanese capital city. The ioc does not use the taiwanese-flag or it's national anthem or anything. That could identify taiwan as a sovereign nation so instead at the badminton medal ceremony they raised a generic olympic flag and played a traditional flag raising saul even world leaders advocated really appeared to have trouble making sense of taiwan's status in two thousand sixteen incoming. Us president donald trump violated the one china policy by taking a congratulatory phone call from the president of taiwan trump. Then tweeted his. Thanks to the president of taiwan. The chinese government was furious. This was a call put into me. I didn't make the call and it was a call very short. Call saying congratulations sir. On the victory it was a very nice call. I asked taiwanese historian. James lynn to help clear up any confusion. Kind of in very basic terms. Explain in a nutshell. What taiwan is. How what what we're left with a given given that sort of peculiar historical journey in a nutshell might be kind of difficult. I think i think that. We should st taiwan as a decolonizing nation. It's one where it is caught in a current geopolitical struggle from a very powerful neighbour the people's republic of china but it has its own kind of cultural social and political identity that it wants to assert And it wants to be seen as a nation states on the global stage but because of this kind of geopolitical pressure it isn't able to fully be nation state and that's the thing over the past forty years or so amid countless debates over its official international status. Taiwan has grown into a thriving capitalist democracy taipei-based analyst with the global wants within washington. Dc into mcdonagh.

"Corona virus and disinformation are two of the big challenges that have demanded the world's attention in two thousand twenty in the last days of the year. The news about vaccines for covid. Nineteen seems fairly positive. Even though that news of course needs to be fact checked as well but it may be that. Fighting mass-scale disease is in fact more feasible than fighting mass-scale disinformation but foreign policy magazine has drawn attention to some innov- it's to tackle this information in taiwan including a collaborative fact checking bought created as part of a public private partnership between the taiwanese government and the owners of taiwan's most popular messaging app. Which is called line. Indeed the authors lang and do lay say that in american tech circles. Taiwan has become a model for the fight against disinformation laying a former social media manager and speechwriter for taiwanese president side on when and do on is a national security advisor to the institute for security and technology as well as being an adjunct professor of politics at the university of san francisco. And i'm very pleased to say that. They both join us now on sunday. Extra welcome libby and doer. Thank you for her. It's great to have you. Can i start by just asking you to give us a brief outline libby of what that app line is and why this information on the line out has been a particular concern so in taiwan line is essentially the messaging app more than ninety percent of the population has the app on their phone. It integrates a news platform. It has closed chat groups <hes>. You can read comics on it really like anything you can think to do on tech app you can probably find a way to do online and i suppose the this information element is particularly important because while we often focus on things like facebook and twitter. It's the private messaging where a lot of this material is distributed. Does that ring true to you. Do one yeah. Domains of new innovation of this digital accountability. Project is that it embodies or would call <hes>. Distributed of dictation and do is think about the volume of information we face on a daily basis in the information environment right. The volume is so massive we cannot to professional fact checking trying to balk. Wet the rising volume office information and to me. The most innovative side of the story is that let the users have access to fact checking as well as built a database of corrected information so people can easily access such information in a very distributed manner and to me like this kind of distributed authentication is only possible through recall public and private partnership because the skill is only possible when both sides of this equation or together tech companies have tried to solve this problem but essentially they don't have the right incentive structures to do it as long as they have no pr issues and to me. I think that's the main thing. No innovation that the taiwanese government was to crack the code on. Indonesia is also another example but few governments they may talk about triple. Ps but very few governments have been able to crack the code on it. We tend to look at the shiny object right. This bought fact checking infrastructure right but behind that invasion. I think there was a lot of like we. Wholesome political leadership absolutely and there are some really interesting things to explore there. There's the technology but then also the human interaction which you've rightly pointed to do on and the fact that it's done as as a public private partnership as well so let's let's dig into all of those three aspects. Starting paps with the technology libby laying line has a fact checker and fact. Checking is a concept. I think everyone's familiar with these days. But we tend to think of a sort of separate major organizational or unit that does sort of human research and publishes its results whereas online the line fact checker is what you've called collaborative fact checking bought which sounds very impressive. What it means. What is a collaborative fact checking bought. How does the line fact check work. So the basic concept is that this line bought anyone can add it as a friend and once you have it as a friend you can copy and paste any link to a news article or perhaps a paragraph that contains information. You're not quite sure about. And you can send this message to the bought. And then once the bought receives the message. It runs the content that you sent it against the existing database of fact checked information that it has and it kind of spits backout evaluation to you about whether the information is false whether it needs more information to be sure <hes> and it also provides related links. Like if you're asking a question about a certain topic and this has been fact checked before they might show you. Oh you might be interested in this factual story right and it's doing all that using in an automated way and the reason that it's collaborative in understanding this that it it's actually pulling more than one fact checking source together. Yes so it's actually with line and then it's with some different third party fact checking platforms <hes>. As well as taiwanese government so it's cooling essentially these public and private resources together and then making this single that keeps all this information in one place

Yes that would definitely deepen. And that's what the people want having said that the opposition Kuomintang among David Ties with America. So it's not as if American ties when it changed drastically if the Kuomintang had one so it sounds as if the incumbent administration and and the more pro China candidate and party are seeking closer ties with America that seems somewhat at odds not really because I'm the opposition Guam down supports the idea. The Taiwan is a sovereign country in the form of Republic of China.

The CY administration would having said that the president signed win is highly trusting Washington. She's got very good diplomatic abilities and she knows how to use them and so in. What regard then did China try to influence this election? Do you think ever since the President took office twenty sixteen China stepped up military exercises and the aim was to intimidate the voters who elected her. For example there were regular fly does from Obama jets with China is from experience that these kinds of actions actually influenced voters to support the AP so it actually stopped the patrols in the middle of this year and there haven't been any recently at all having said that the day P P also said the challenge waged a Russian style influencing misinformation campaign however many foreign observers say they're impressed with how well the government and organizations it was working with responded to false reports and these could often be an hour so in the bigger picture. How do you think China is going to deal with this? National mood at wants. Closer ties with another superpower and with two parties that are according outside powers and so on China's stance towards Taiwan mood change aged lacing the short term so we'll probably see a continuation of regional military exercises a probably continue with the economic incentives to Lou Tommy's professionals to work in China with salaries of the much higher than what owning Taiwan and continue to isolate. Taiwan internationally will probably try and steal successfully steal one of Taiwan's seventeen remaining mining diplomatic allies. I don't think China has much of a choice.

He's going to decide whether he wants to stay on point success. And he doesn't want major mishaps with Taiwan or its Taiwan policies in the two years before that because we'll give Chinese hawks reason to argue that his policy towards Taiwan isn't working. Well I mean that's certainly what it looks like. The policy isn't working. The people are expressing their will. They're they're gaining more independence. They've got the support of the international community in ten. China has its hands tied in terms terms of of actually responding to that is look it does appear that China has its hands tied. I think it's important to mention that. Many maneuvers from China to Taiwan for example putting pressure on multinational companies not WANNA country aimed at a domestic audience in China as much as Taiwan the rest of the world. So it's not so much whether the global community decides is to call Beijing Taiwan policies of failure what we think doesn't really matter to the Chinese ladyship.

They pushed the idea, very hard, and they can go that will find all sorts of way. And it's been decades kind of let go. That's why I wished I could stop and see that they're all the possibility. Early the next morning, Andrew, nice scooter apartment building in Taipei on the twelfth floor we walk into a place called tone to hotline, the hotline is an inclusive LGBT Hugh center that runs all kinds of programs for the queer community Taipei, and it's literally in an apartment, there are posters of different queer Asia movies on the wall. And we sit down in the cozy living room the center runs a hotline for people who have come out and there's also a hotline for their parents. I'm the go on my mind, Andrew, and I meet wall, mama wall is her last name and mama means mom mama has been volunteering at the hotline for fourteen years. She says that when her kid was first coming out, she and her husband, had trouble finding information we're all looking very, very hard for those information internet. Then there's no lying or our Facebook sixteen seventeen years ago when he can out. He was very young. So how can we expect him to know anything concrete? So we have to do all of Mark. The he come out as trans transgender then no, no. I sit y'all less being almost like a T, definitely a t t our boys drive a few years later, he came out as trans while mama has been volunteering at the hotline ever since with what makes hard for people, you know, some parents for Chinese parents, we still believe that children are our property. So we will do all the decisions for them. Buy houses for them. Protect over protect sometimes, and we have the control freak heads. Whatever the had a copter, parents over. We are probably not like that. But still, the, the source society the, the pressure are different because they're judging the parents. I how come you like that? How do you think a kid can come out to their, their parents? Like what is the easiest way to do that? So they understand five steps out how their star. That's right. A ladder.

The tell your parents, then the third, it's like the history of your out, ubt life like what happened, you have tried the opposite sex. You have boyfriend girlfriend, many things you have went to the doctors you do into line and things like that. Like a history, also telling the parents, this, no eo can now fours is your now.

And now it's finally happened. So to celebrate where running an episode that we released last year before same sex marriage past when I travelled to Taiwan with my mom and imagine what life would have been like if I'd never left.
