Many observers feel that the Russia invasion of Ukraine has been coordinated with CCP controlled China. There are strong signals that the Chinese are watching how the world reacts to Russia and learning what to expect if they choose to invade Taiwan.
Taiwan has long been in the sights of the CCP controlled China as part of their One china policy. However, after the suppression of Hong Kong, Taiwan has been more and more moving towards a complete separation.
In reaction, China is hoping to use a weak and compromised Biden administration to take advantage and conquer the American ally.
The world’s reaction to Russia has been key to understanding what China can and cannot get away with. So far it looks the West won’t be able to do much against China.
