When Taiwan’s foreign minister warns of a fight to the end in a looming Battle with China, we should pay attention. This is not sabre rattling, it is not fear-mongering — it is the cool-headed assessment of a man whose job is to ready the Taiwanese people for the worst.
Joseph Wu says Taiwan is preparing for an invasion. There are few diplomatic options right now, as Xi Jinping says that he will go to Battle if necessary to bring Taiwan under his control.
Taiwan is a fault line that could crack open the global geopolitical order. Xi Jinping has set his course: claiming Taiwan will assure his legacy. It is the big piece in his China Dream. Call it Xi’s gamble: That history is on his side and his big rival the US will do nothing to stop him. There is a big test looming: Will America fight alongside Taiwan? The answer to that question will determine Australia’s fate; a broader conflict would likely mean we would be at Battle.
