Stop counting warships. China’s special-operations forces are Taiwan’s real problem. | Insider

Must Read

China’s Navy has reached some historic milestones in recent months. In December, two Chinese carrier battle groups went to sea simultaneously for the first time. Just weeks before the Navy’s large new helicopter began conducting sea trials. There may be temptation to conclude that China’s Navy is the most immediate threat to Taiwan but there likely wouldn’t be much need for their Navy given the proximity of the two countries.

More likely, a first wave of Chinese ballistic and cruise missile attacks would target air defenses, transportation infrastructure and communication nodes. PLA bombers and attack aircraft would follow clearing channels for ground insertion via helicopter or parachute. All three major Chinese services now require parachute training. The PLA’s parachute troops would have ample access to special light tanks and jeeps for mobility once on the island and would be supported by China’s vast arsenal of rotary wing aircraft.

Between airborne and heliborne forces, there could quite easily be 50,000 Chinese troops on the island during the first wave and 100,000 within 24 hours. Something else to keep in mind is China’s developing special operations forces, there is regular Chinese military news highlighting their stealthy insertion, night operations, sniper tactics, securing hard targets, urban combat, and mountain operations.

  1. It’s appropriate time to make some plans for the long run and it is time to be happy.
    I’ve learn this post and if I could I wish to counsel you some attention-grabbing things or tips.
    Maybe you can write subsequent articles regarding this article.
    I wish to read more things about it!

  2. An intriguing discussion is worth comment.
    I do believe that you need to write more about this issue, it might
    not be a taboo matter but typically folks don’t talk about these
    topics. To the next! Kind regards!!

  3. Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.

    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa?
    My site discusses a lot of the same topics as yours and I
    believe we could greatly benefit from each other.

    If you are interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!

  4. Does your site have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but,
    I’d like to shoot you an email. I’ve got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
    Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it improve over
    time.

  5. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally
    educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something not enough people are speaking intelligently about.

    Now i’m very happy I found this in my hunt for something relating to this.

  6. Unquestionably consider that which you said. Your favourite justification seemed to be
    on the web the easiest thing to understand of.
    I say to you, I definitely get irked whilst other people consider issues that they just don’t realize about.

    You managed to hit the nail upon the highest as neatly
    as defined out the whole thing with no need side effect ,
    other folks can take a signal. Will probably be again to
    get more. Thanks

  7. When someone writes an paragraph he/she keeps the idea of a user in his/her brain that
    how a user can understand it. Thus that’s why
    this article is outstdanding. Thanks!

  8. Wow that was strange. I just wrote an very long comment but after I clicked submit my comment
    didn’t show up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyhow, just wanted to say great blog!

  9. Hello! Would you mind if I share your blog with my facebook group?

    There’s a lot of people that I think would really appreciate your
    content. Please let me know. Many thanks

  10. Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?

    A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog stand out.

    Please let me know where you got your theme. Kudos

  11. Fantastic beat ! I wish to apprentice while you amend your website, how can i subscribe for
    a blog web site? The account aided me a acceptable deal.

    I had been tiny bit acquainted of this your broadcast provided bright clear concept

  12. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab
    inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!

    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  13. First of all I want to say fantastic blog!

    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask
    if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center
    yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I’ve had trouble
    clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thank you!

  14. Hi, I do think this is an excellent blog. I stumbledupon it 😉 I will revisit yet again since i have book marked it.
    Money and freedom is the best way to change,
    may you be rich and continue to help others.

  15. My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s
    tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a variety of websites for about a
    year and am worried about switching to another platform.
    I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a
    way I can import all my wordpress content into
    it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

  16. Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding
    one? Thanks a lot!

  17. Pretty niсe post. I juѕt stumbled upon your weblog and wanted to say that I hаsve really enjoyed surfing aгound
    your bloɡ posts. In any сase Ӏ wіll be subscгibіng to y᧐ur
    rss feeⅾ aand I hope you write again very soon!

  18. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. However imagine if you added some great
    pictures or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this blog could certainly be
    one of the best in its niche. Awesome blog!

  19. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and
    now each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?

    Bless you!

  20. Greetings! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had
    issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives
    for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  21. Nur aus dringenden betrieblichen oder in der Person des Arbeitnehmers liegenden Gründen ist eine Übertragung des
    Urlaubs aufs nächste Kalenderjahr statthaft; in diesem Fall muss der Urlaub in den ersten drei Monaten des
    folgenden Kalenderjahrs gewährt und genommen werden. Kuren und Schonzeiten dürfen nicht auf den Urlaub angerechnet werden, soweit ein Anspruch auf Entgeltfortzahlung im Krankheitsfall (Entgeltfortzahlung) besteht.
    Während des Bestehens des Arbeitsverhältnisses gilt ein Abgeltungsverbot.

    6. Vergütung: Urlaubsentgelt, Urlaubsgeld.
    Erkrankt ein Arbeitnehmer während des Urlaubs, so werden die
    durch ärztliches Zeugnis nachgewiesenen Tage der Arbeitsunfähigkeit auf den Jahresurlaub nicht angerechnet.

    Kann der Urlaub wegen Beendigung des Arbeitsverhältnisses ganz oder teilweise nicht mehr gewährt
    werden, so ist er abzugelten. Mit Ablauf des Übertragungszeitraums wird
    der Arbeitgeber von welcher Verpflichtung zur Urlaubsgewährung frei, soweit er nicht die
    Unmöglichkeit der Urlaubsgewährung zu vertreten hat.
    Hat der Arbeitnehmer im laufenden Urlaubsjahr nur einen Teilanspruch wegen nicht erfüllter Wartezeit, so ist dieser Urlaub on demand des Arbeitnehmers auf das ganze
    nächste Urlaubsjahr zu übertragen und hiermit Urlaub des
    folgenden Jahres zu gewähren.

  22. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a coworker
    who had been conducting a little homework on this.
    And he actually ordered me lunch simply because I found it
    for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!!

    But yeah, thanx for spending the time to discuss this subject here on your blog.

  23. We are a gaggle of volunteers and starting a brand new scheme in our community.
    Your web site provided us with useful info to work on. You have performed a formidable job and our whole
    neighborhood will likely be thankful to you.

  24. Ihr stellt fest: Bei einem Winterurlaub in Frankreich könnt
    ihr euch auf Abwechslung, Skipisten und viele Highlights freuen.
    Kommen zu zahlreiche andere Skiorte, die für einen unvergesslichen Aufenthalt sorgen und herrliche Abfahrten garantieren. Es ist die größte und schnellste doppelstöckige
    Luftseilbahn der Welt. Die Schweiz darf auf der
    Liste der beliebtesten Destinationen für einen Skiurlaub nicht fehlen.
    Frankreich stellt hierbei Vanoise Express einen weiteren Rekord auf.
    Hier gibt es flache Hänge für alle, die mit den Skiern bis jetzt nicht vertraut sind.
    In Saas Fee, dem höchsten Skigebiet der Alpen, erwartet
    euch ein atemberaubender Ausblick. Von oben fahrt ihr über 20 Kilometer hinab und
    beendet die Tour in Chamonix. St. Moritz ist weltweit neben anderen das beliebtesten Destinationen für einen Skiurlaub in der Schweiz.

    Hier findet ihr ebenso das größte zusammenhängende Skigebiet der Welt:
    Les Trois Vallées. Die Schweizer Alpen garantieren euch malerische Skiorte mit schneebedeckten Landschaften. Für die Profis gibt es
    die steilen Pisten.

  25. Da warten u.a. Saunen und einem Indoor- und Outdoorpool.
    Außerdem wurde es bereits mehrfach zum besten Skigebiet der
    Welt gekürt! Direkt bei den Liften des Skigebiets Obergurgl –
    Hochgurgl steht das Top bewertete 4°S The Crystal mit seinem fantastischen 2.000 m² Spa-Bereich auf 2 Etagen. Die Gründe liegen klar auf der Hand: Neben den modernsten Aufstiegsanlagen und den vielen traditionellen Hütten zum Einkehren findet ihr hier… Servus
    Piraten! Heiß auf einen luxuriösen Trip ganz ans Ende des Ötztals?

    Dahinter stehen zwei bekannte Persönlichkeiten, und zwar Hermann Maier & Rainer Schönfelder,
    welche mit dieser neuen Hotelmarke (ursprünglicher Name adeo) Skiurlaub für jedermann
    erschwinglich machen, was ihnen mit ihren Hotelprojekten ohne Frage gut… Mit fast 300 Pistenkilometern und knapp 100 Liftanlagen gehört die SkiWelt Wilder
    Kaiser-Brixental zu den größten und modernsten Skigebieten Österreichs und der Welt.
    Auch zum diesjährigen Saisonfinale Ende März bekommt ihr noch Termine.
    Falls ihr diesjährig nicht zum Rennen dort wart, macht das nichts, denn Snowtrex hat bereits die Buchungstermine für Zukunft Jahr drin, bei denen ihr ohne Ende sparen könnt.
    Ahoi Piraten! Matthias Mayer heisst der diesjährige Sieger des Hahnenkammrennens auf der Kitzbühler “Streif”.

    Wem die 110 km Piste auf einer Höhe zwischen…

  26. In Niedersachsen waren bis zum 18. Mai Übernachtungen speziell für
    Menschen mit Wohnsitz in Niedersachsen erlaubt, diese
    Regelung wurde von einem Gericht gekippt. Weltweit ist Reisen wegen der Corona-Pandemie weiterhin stark eingeschränkt und voller Auflagen wie Quarantäne und Testpflicht verbunden. Wo
    in Deutschland ist Urlaub möglich? Da das Oberverwaltungsgericht zudem das Beherbergungsverbot für auswärtige Touristen in Niedersachsen gekippt hat, dürfen auch dort
    wieder Bürger aus anderen Bundesländern Urlaub machen. Dort ist seit dem 17.
    Mai insgesamt gesehen Land Urlaub unter Beachtung strenger Auflagen erlaubt – zuvor
    war dies bereits in vier Modellregionen der Fall. Touristische Übernachtungen sind in den meisten Teilen Deutschlands noch untersagt.

    Voraussetzungen sind hierneben ein negatives Corona-Testergebnis bei Einreise sowie weitere negative Tests hier am ort
    alle 72 Stunden oder alternativ ein Impfnachweis.
    Seit 17. Mai dürfen in Schleswig-Holstein landesweit Hotels und andere Beherbergungsbetriebe für Geimpfte, Genesene und Getestete wieder öffnen. In Deutschland
    sind touristische Übernachtungen noch in fast allen Bereichen untersagt.
    Eine Ausnahme ist Schleswig-Holstein. Urlaub trotz Corona:
    Welche aktuellen Regeln gelten?

  27. You actually make it seem really easy along with your presentation but I in finding this matter to
    be really one thing which I feel I would never

    try to get the hang of it!
