China to kick off ‘subsequent global battle’ if Taiwan is lost to ‘tyranny’, says expert | World | News

With the Communist nation claiming sovereignty over Taiwan and the disputed waters within the South China Sea, an expert has acknowledged China will start the subsequent worldwide battle. Maajid Nawaz, a presenter for LBC radio, commented on the rise in navy motion within the nation and the growing incursions into Taiwan’s airspace.

He acknowledged {that a} potential results of the annexation of Taiwan would lead to a “global conflict”, inflicting worldwide penalties.

Tensions have been rising between China and Taiwan as Beijing has recommended the opportunity of invading their island neighbour.

“You’re talking about a corporatist one-party state using technology to turn humans into a commodity for the sake of pursuing macro profit,” the radio presenter acknowledged.

”The concern with Taiwan…is we lose one more democracy and China, because it did with Hong Kong, turns Taiwan right into a tyranny,” Nawaz feared.

The LBC presenter warned nations should put together for a battle with China.

“Let’s say China invades Taiwan by 2025, I think we have to hope for the best and prepare for the worst,” he stated.

“What prepare for the worst means, is this country has to be ready to stand on its own two feet if there’s a shock to the global world order in the form of a war.”

The reunification of Taiwan has been in the works for a long time and Kevin Rudd, former Australian prime minister, is concerned about the global implications.

“I think what we’ll then be moving into is a period which China will be looking at its options to leverage Taiwan back into a form of a political union with China by the time we get to the late 2020s and into the 2030s,” Rudd told CNBC.

Japan’s deputy prime minister also shared his concerns that China could shift its interests to other islands as well, including those in the Senkaku island chain.

“We need to think hard that Okinawa could be the next,” he said.
