China, which has been claiming self-ruled Taiwan as its territory, is trying to annex it. America’s ally, standing by Taiwan’s aid, has made China red-eyed from the start.
Elections will be held in Taiwan on January 13 to elect a new president. However, as the election date approaches, China is planning to attack Taiwan. Once the Chinese forces attack, they will not only target military infrastructure. Instead, the focus is said to be on disrupting Taiwan’s communications system. Taiwan’s communications system has already been compromised by Chinese cyber attackers. The banking system has failed. Most systems have returned from online to offline mode, international media reported, quoting the statement of cyber expert Crystal Tu of Taiwan’s National Defense and Security Research Institute.
Cyber attacks against Taiwan have already increased. “The choice between war and peace is yours,” China warned the island nation.
50 lakh attacks per day
Taiwanese experts have estimated that if the situation continues like this, there will be 50 lakh cyber attacks per day from China.
Cyber attackers aren’t just targeting Taiwan’s government and defense system. Semiconductor manufacturing units are also being targeted. Once the semiconductor sector is under attack, there will be a serious impact on the global electronic chip market.
Satellite based net connection?
As Taiwan is an island nation, all communication networking lines are based on submarine cables. Chinese forces have already carried out cyber attacks and threatened Taiwan’s communication system. Once China destroys the submarine cables, Taiwan will be cut off from the rest of the world. In order to escape such an adverse situation, the Taiwanese government is already negotiating with two foreign satellite-based internet service provider companies. Taiwan’s Deputy Minister of Communications Technology Huaiz Jen-Lin said that there are plans to install 700 receivers that receive signals from satellites.
“China has repeatedly interfered in our internal affairs. We will not budge on its threats. We will respond to any kind of attack. It will end after the election,” Taiwan’s Foreign Minister Joseph Wu said.
China is an indirect tong for India
China has said it strongly opposes external interference by any country in the internal affairs of the island nation of Maldives. By this, the diplomatic crisis between Maldives and India has been brought forward and an indirect attack has been made against India. After the visit of the President of the Maldives, Mohammed Muizzzu, the Chinese government issued a statement saying, “China supports the country’s policy of upholding the sovereignty, independence and national dignity of the Maldives.”
