The sale of US Patriot Advanced Capability-3 missiles to Taiwan has made China so chilly that its official media has started to bill. After the US approval of this defense deal estimated to cost $ 620 million, government media Global Times directly warned Taiwan and the US not to play with fire. These days, China has also been enraged by the maneuvers of two American aircraft carriers in the South China Sea.
Taiwan’s defense budget mocked
Global Times boastfully wrote that China has increased its military strength so much that no matter how much military equipment and weapons Taiwan purchases from America, it will not matter. Chinese media claimed that Taiwan’s defense budget is only $ 11 billion. Which is not even worth mentioning before the Chinese army.
We will capture Taiwan in a few hours
Not only this, the Chinese government mouthpiece went a step further, stating that once the war broke out, the Chinese military was able to destroy Taiwan’s overall military capabilities and occupy its islands within a few hours. China has been claiming Taiwan as its share and Chinese Communist Party leaders repeatedly threaten military action over Taiwan.
Taiwan is paying security fee to America
On buying arms from the US, the Global Times wrote sarcastically that Taiwan is paying security fees to the US through these defense deals. Taiwan is not able to protect its people. Taiwan’s defense cannot be judged in the traditional way. This is only a result of strategic balance. Taiwan does not stand in front of China’s power.
US-Taiwan threatened with sovereignty
The Chinese media wrote warning to the US and Taiwan that once a shot is fired in the Gulf of Taiwan due to a strategic mistake, a massive war is likely. The Global Times wrote that the US and Taiwan should not play with fire. Once war breaks out in the region, China will defend national sovereignty at all costs.
How dangerous is America’s Patriot missile
America’s Patriot Advanced Capability – 3 (PAC-3) missis is one of the world’s best defense systems. This missile defense system is capable of killing enemy ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and fighter ships in an instant. The all-weather missile is manufactured by Lockheed Mortin.
This missile is currently deployed in these countries
