Relations between Taiwan and China have been questionable for many years.
Traditional Chinese citizens like to claim that they own Taiwan, while Taiwanese nationalists maintain that they are their own country.
Regardless of which side you support, Taiwan’s latest action angered China.
According to reports, units from the Taiwan army, navy, and air force, were caught on Thursday engaging in a D-Day drill in preparation of a potential conflict with China.
Conservative Tribune reports:
They featured tanks, rocket launchers, assault helicopters and soldiers using shoulder-fired missiles to repel a potential amphibious landing force invading from the People’s Republic of China on a massive scale — an Asian version of D-Day.
Warships also maneuvered offshore and fighter jets deployed flares.
According to Newsweek, Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen wore a camouflage helmet and flak jacket as she watched over the live-fire drills.
She later issued a statement that it was necessary for Taiwan to be prepared for an upcoming conflict.
“When Taiwan shows its determination to take the road of defensive autonomy, it is putting on a display to the world of our determination to protect our home and land,” she said at a military base in Penghu.
Do you believe Taiwan is an independent country, or do you think they belong to the China?
