As China continues its snap military drills around Taiwan in retaliation to US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s provocative visit to the island this week, top Chinese military officials are refusing to return calls from their counterparts at the Pentagon, according to Politico.
Soon China will announce that we won't play cricket with America anymore.

‘Chinese lost the political and diplomatic battle over Taiwan with Pelosi’s refusal to cancel the visit. Now they are pretending to be aggressive without any reason. By mistake they will hit an American vessel and get a return salvo and then only they will stop.

They wont target murican vessels directly
Imo they could either continue this nautanki until everyone forgets and move on
They are buying time,preparing and will attack some taiwanese islands
They might heat up LAC as they think it might be easiest

Associated Press: Blockade of Taiwan, which was previously predicted against the backdrop of large-scale exercises of the PLA, is already underway

Taiwan cancels flights as China conducts military exercises, AP writes. The publication notes that the blockade "increased the risk of failures in the flow of Taiwanese-made processor chips needed by the industry's global telecommunications and automotive companies."

Hong Kong newspaper The South China Morning Post called the exercise "an effective blockade of Taiwan." Against this background, China is extending military exercises around Taiwan from 7 to 15 August.

Whatever happening in China right now though seems like drama , Its a fair warning to MNCs operating there . And also for countries too much depended upon them without any alternatives . Countries needs to do an assessment on how much they ll be impacted in case of a possible chinese aggression in future .

Has China backed down after its angry display of missile firing over Taiwan or is it risking a shooting war? The American position is very clear; that is, in-spite of highly incompetence of Biden Administration, America will defend Taiwan. With that in mind, will China risk a shooting war? No they will not. It will take time before they back down. Their prestige has been hurt plus they like to protect their export market. Hence what should we see in next three months:

1. Biden will resign (health grounds). His Vice President is more incompetent than he is, hence she will be forced to resign too.

2. Nancy Pelosi as per constitution will become the president and then China watch out for this rude and strong person. No compromise will be made. That means war or China backdown.

3. Ukraine war will be over. Biden Administration and whatever is left of it will eat a humble pie.

4. Xi of China will be replaced (after Xi who?)

5. India has opportunity to recover some parts of AkasChin because Chinese focus is on China sea.

6. If US-China short shooting War begins then India can block Straits of Malacca as part QUAD effort to constrict Chinese trade and oil supplies.

7. Then US will as a matter of gratitude (blocking Straits of Malacca) or a well thought out policy may switch consumer goods manufacture from China to India and send all the FDI to build india.

7. China will be permanently dealt with with no aggression left for a generation.

Hence my wish, that this China’s anger be settled in a short sea war. That will cut China to size……… cheers

Speed up the acquisition and get Airwing ready by the end of 2023. It will be GLORIOUS sight when multiple INDIAN Carrier battle strike groups march towards Malacca.
