Five possible military scenarios that could be provoked by Pelosi’s trip to Taiwan

Scenario 1: The minimalist approach. The PLA occupies Jinmen or Matsu islands, as well as Taiwan’s islands in the South China Sea, and maybe even the Penghu Islands. They also declare part or all of the Taiwan Strait a “no go” zone to foreign military shipping. This would probably be fairly easy for the PLA, and Taiwan would probably not want to overcommit to naval action against the huge PLA Navy (PLAN) if it didn’t directly approach the main island.

Scenario 2: Hybrid warfare. Some sort of partial naval and aerial blockade of Taiwan intended to interfere with the economy, combined with stepped-up harassment, such as direct flyovers of Taiwan’s territory by PLA Air Force (PLAAF) jets, or incursions into Taiwan’s maritime space by China’s naval militia, protected by PLAN warships. This might also be accompanied by cyberattacks designed to shut down the internet and other infrastructure for days at a time. Taiwan would have no choice to assert a stiff defensive posture, resulting in real engagements between Taiwanese and Chinese forces, posing a serious risk of escalation.

Scenario 3: A serious attack but no invasion. This would involve air and sea warfare only, no boots on the ground. A full aerial and naval blockade, a protracted set of naval and aerial battles designed to degrade Taiwan’s military, combined with ballistic missile attacks on military targets. Aggressive cyberattacks turning off the internet and shutting down critical infrastructure for days or weeks. Once air and naval superiority were established, China could pick off targets at will, ratcheting up the threat until the government breaks.

Scenario 4: The Full Monty – a proper invasion. Total air and sea blockade, massive ballistic missile attacks on military targets, massive cyberattacks to paralyze virtually all military, governmental, and civilian communication and shut down critical infrastructure. Aggressive naval and aerial engagements to degrade Taiwan’s forces and achieve battlespace superiority, followed by sustained aerial assaults by fighters and bombers on military targets. A decapitation strike at Taipei by special forces units to try to seize key leadership personnel. Well-coordinated insider treason and sabotage actions by gangsters, planted CCP agents, and other groups sympathetic to China – the so-called “5th column”. An amphibious assault with close air support from fighters, helicopters, and battle drones at one or more locations in Taiwan, and very possibly a move to seize a major port, such as Keelung, Taipei Port, Taichung, or Kaohsiung. Then hundreds of thousands of troops would start rolling in until the island was occupied. That would be the plan, anyway. PLA success in such an endeavor is very unclear. But they could do a hell of a lot of damage trying. And yes, they might actually succeed, at least partially, such as in seizing and holding the region around Taipei.

Scenario 5: Worst Case (short of nuclear) scenario. Full air and sea blockade, massive ballistic missile attacks on military targets, massive cyberattack, aggressive naval and aerial attacks to degrade Taiwan’s forces and achieve battlefield superiority, followed by aerial assaults by fighters and bomber on military targets and area bombing of civilian targets. There are massive casualties, and Taiwan is crushed by brute force, surrenders, and then the occupiers enter the country and take it over.

Be sure to read the linked article for a discussion of how these military responses may or may not fit developing conditions. Scenario 0 is there may be no military response. Taiwan could tell Pelosi not to come or prevent her from coming, but so far this has not happened, so a major onus is very much on Taiwan right now. That said, the US role is huge. The only “advantage” the US can gain from this is a similar proxy war/bleeding of China as Ukraine was supposed to effect against Russia. The other big factor is the US may possess super-weapons that ensure victory if WW3 breaks out. This would entail a super antimissile system as well as super-nukes, probably space-based. Without question Biden is not in charge. Who are his handlers and what are their goals? Are their goals in any way good for America? The world? Why do Biden’s overlords use such drab, dismal people as their public face? Consider how weak and stupid most of them seem to be, including Pelosi, Harris, Biden, Blinken, Sullivan, Buttigieg, and many more. None of them appears to have the intelligence or ability to lead USA in placid times, let alone these times. ABN

“When the president of the United States gets up and says, ‘Get vaccinated,’ he’s violating law” – Dr Peter McCullough

Presidential order "just get it" violates pharmaceutical promotion laws which state products must always be presented with fair balance. There are risks and benefits attributed to all products. We cannot tolerate unlawful commands from public servants. @Daystar @DaystarJoni

Compare to cops in Uvalde who are being excoriated for their “systemic failures and egregious poor decision making.” Our medical system is still today denying early treatments while providing really bad treatments in hospital for covid. We are also mandating obviously failed covid vaccines and even pushing them on BABIES. It is a valid comparison and shows how we absorb and often fail to understand complex information. In Uvalde, cops froze as a group for over an hour as children were being killed. In USA, the majority of us—including a large majority of doctors—are still frozen in the face of covid. ABN

“They feel like they’re watching a horror show and they can’t close their eyes”

I can empathize with FDA and CDC employees who are disgusted by the horrible anti-science and quitting the agencies in droves, but many more of them need to go public with their objections. It may not be easy and you may harm your career but after killing hundreds of thousands of adults and grown children, they are now going after BABIES. No career is worth complicity in that. Also, the day may come soon when you will be rewarded for your courage even if is late in coming. It will take a generation at least to repair the harm done by US health agencies during covid. ABN

THE TIDE IS TURNING: Health experts are quitting the NIH and CDC in droves because they’re embarrassed by ‘bad science’ – including vaccinating children under 5 to ‘make their advice palatable to the White House’, doctors claim

‘The public has no idea how bad this data really is. It would not pass muster for any other authorization,’ said an FDA official. 

The NIH and CDC are reportedly facing staffing shortages as low morale drives away employees

Decisions like the closure of schools and then requiring face masks once they reopened led to many questioning leadership

Lately, the authorization of COVID-19 vaccines for children four years old of younger has confused some in America’s top medical agencies

“Climate crisis” summed up by VP

Kamala Harris: “We will work together, and continue to work together, to address these issues, to tackle these challenges, and to work together as we continue to work operating from the new norms, rules, & agreements, that we will convene to work together”

Filing this one under “incompetence,” “infiltration,” and “asymmetric warfare.” Covid has provided a profoundly important example of the danger of basing government policy on computer models. And the danger of listening to politicians who believe those models without understanding them. ABN

Geert Vanden Bossche on the very serious danger of vaccinating babies “against” covid; the inevitability of a resurgence of serious disease from new variants that have adapted to thrive on the vaccinated

direct link

This is an excellent interview. Whenever he speaks, Vanden Bossche adds new information that fits new conditions or that further explicates his fundamental thesis: that mass vaccinating during a hot pandemic was always doomed to failure, and worse is yet to come. In this interview, Vanden Bossche is very clear about the profound harm vaccination of babies “against” covid will do to their naive immune systems which are geared to start learning the difference between their own bodies and what is not their own body. He also says that we will know when the pandemic is starting to get very bad by a sudden increase in hospitalizations of working age vaccinees.

I might add that virtually all of our essential workers—including doctors, nurses, EMTs, police, military and more—have been fully vaccinated and boosted. We may see our societies overwhelmed as even our most essential workers are laid up with a novel pathological variant of covid. Another very significant point about our situation is vaccine uptake has been foisted on Western countries more than any others. Many things can be guessed about this, a principal one being if an enemy—internal or external—foisted this bioweapon and vaccine on the West, they are either not Western or a caste of Westerners who feel no connection and only hatred toward Western people. Vanden Bossche warns all of us to stock up on antiviral meds and much more. Highly recommended. ABN
