Taiwan Defiantly Stands Up to China

Story here. h/t:
Taiwan has staged its biggest live-fire army drill in 20 years, simulating a triumphant repulsion of an invading Chinese force in a display designed to send a clear message to Beijing that the country will not be cowed.

Now that's what I like to see: standing up to China. It happens so seldom, which I find disturbing. I don't believe the world should be sending the message to China that it condones their apparent imperialistic yearnings, breakneck pace military-WMD buildup and support of belligerent, nuclear-missile-wielding, war-whooping regimes such as North Korea and Iran.

The world should stand with Taiwan against the big Communist bully. All must support Taiwan and denounce China for its disturbing, ominous, unacceptable foreign policy intentions.

Now, we know how vehemently supportive the left is of "Palestine". So if the left refuses to throw its total support behind Taiwan as well, then they will have exposed their true nature. I'll leave it up to y'all to figure out/discuss what, exactly, that nature is.
