At noon on August 4, the PLA began live-fire drills in six areas around China’s Taiwan region. The PLA Eastern Theater Command conducted long-range live-fire training in the Taiwan Strait in the next hour. Later The PLA Eastern Theater Command Rocket Force launched conventional missiles into designated maritime regions east of Taiwan island. All missiles accurately struck their targets. Also, the PLA Eastern Theater Command deployed more than 100 warplanes of various types to the northern, southwestern, and southeastern airspace near the Taiwan island. More than 10 PLA warships implemented a joint blockade in the maritime regions around Taiwan.

Does anyone have good resources RE: PLA technology? I have a feeling they are way more advanced than the US with a fraction of the resources.

They have to be. The US arms manufacturers essentially operate as rackets. That’s a big reason why the defense budget is always so high.

Also, none of them have made hypersonic missiles like Russia and China. China’s manufacturers make for need, not profit.

firing a missile into japanese waters was uncalled for and will only galvanize japan.

It’s to show them who’s in the area now and not to mess with them in case. (Since japan is now one of the puppets of USA to respond in case of something happens in Taiwan)

it’ll encourage japan to amend its constitution and change its self-defense force into a normal military, among other changes.

The DPRK does it too, so it’s only fair China wants to join in on the fun. Now Japan will think twice when provoking either of those countries.

Who in the goddamn fuck would ever care about how the land of Shinzo Abe feels? They’ll do what they’re told by their CIA handlers so their feelings on local issues matter next to nothing.

as long as they have a military, they matter.

They’ll do - what their CIA handlers - tell them to do. They can get riled up, they can get rabid, they can go insane and pull their britches up above their heads; nothing will matter until their handler gives them the go ahead. Their army is only theirs in a sense of its place of origin. They have no sovereign decision power and are an American appendage through and through.
