Several incidents occurring over the past decade suggest that military ties between China, Taiwan and the U.S. are experiencing an increased pace of strategic evolution. The most recent incidents happening between the U.S., China and Taiwan, particularly in July and August of 2017, demonstrate more clearly that a pivot point has been reached in strategic warfare planning. The incidents show that the U.S. needs to study the potential impact of cyberwarfare and the use of EMP weapons as well as integrate them into U.S. strategies at a higher than prior priority.

The following interview is based on an informal discussion with a former senior official in Taiwan who is concerned that there are forces within Taiwan that could lead to instability and, in collusion with the U.S., potentially a military confrontation with China. The interviewee underscores the importance of the findings of my e-book Strait Talk: An In-depth Analysis of China-Taiwan-U.S. Relations, that the optimal solution is for the next generations to find an answer to the Taiwan-China issue and it should be found by the young people on both sides of the strait.
