For anyone doubting whether China has Taiwan in its sights, a warning that the Global Times, a Chinese communist party media outlet, issued to Australia should set those doubts to rest. Having concluded that Joe Biden is not a threat, China is busy letting other regional powers know that they had better not cross China. In response to Australia’s participation in joint military exercises in the East China Sea, China’s propaganda outlet threatened it with intermediate-range ballistic missiles.Taiwan is a prosperous and free island located off the southeastern coast of China. The two countries are separated from each other only by the Taiwan Straits. Taiwan maintains that it is the legitimate government of China, while the Chinese Communist Party claims that it is a pretender nation. The CCP has long made known its desire to conquer Taiwan and bring it into the mainland fold.
