Reuters offers an in-depth look at the battle for Taiwan

Reuters described in detail how after seven decades of tenuous stalemate between China and Taiwan, there is a renewed risk of conflict. While it is impossible to know how this long rivalry will play out, in some respects the battle for Taiwan is already underway, military strategists said. The Chinese military – the People’s Liberation Army – is waging so-called gray-zone warfare against Taiwan that consists of an almost daily campaign of intimidating military exercises, patrols and surveillance that falls just short of armed conflict. The campaign has intensified in recent months, with Beijing stepping up the number of warplanes it is sending into the airspace around Taiwan. China has also used sand dredgers to swarm Taiwan’s outlying islands.
