Wang Zheng, an associate researcher at the School of International Relations of Sun Yat-sen University, commented in the Taiwan media "China Times" on the 26th that President Trump signed the 2020 "National Defense Authorization Law" on the 20th of this month. It will reach 738 billion U.S. dollars and will formally form the Space Army. In addition to detailing the Indian-Pacific strategic deployment and strengthening containment of China, the bill also specifically proposes to strengthen interference and monitoring of Taiwan's election affairs, network environment, and defense security.
In the 1260B provision of the law, the U.S. Defense Secretary is required to submit a report to the Military Commission of the Senate and the House of Representatives on the establishment of the "US-Taiwan High-Level Inter-Ministerial Working Group" on "US-Taiwan Cyber Security Activities" within 180 days of the entry into force of the bill, Proposing plans for how the United States will further intervene in Taiwan ’s cyber security activities in the future. If this is true, it will undoubtedly expose Taiwan ’s military, government, and private enterprises ’network systems to US military surveillance.
Excessive interference in Taiwan
In the past, the United States used network information, social platforms, and media to influence the "dirty work" of public opinion in various places. The CIA was mainly responsible for carrying out operations under the table. However, since 2010, the United States Cyber Warfare Command has been established to represent online information. It has risen to the limit of warfare, and the National Defense Authorization Act 1631 in FY 2020 officially authorized the U.S. military to engage in military operations, including covert operations, in the information environment, and allowed the United States to use all state power, including offensive cyber capabilities The tool will also set up a new "Information Operations Chief Adviser" as Chief Advisor to the US Defense Secretary.
According to the definition of this provision, the so-called "secret operations" in the information space are authorized by the US President or Defense Secretary to be carried out in secret and will not be recognized publicly. It can be seen from the essence that there is no difference between them and the CIA's "secret operations". In this way, the information secret operations carried out by the U.S. military will be unknowable to other countries and regions. For example, the large-scale global surveillance disclosed by Snowden will be intensified, and the U.S. cyber army's network monitoring, penetration and attacks will become global. The greatest threat.
Under the so-called "U.S.-Taiwan special relationship", Taiwan ’s cyber security space will probably open its doors to the United States. Taiwan ’s Internet public opinion and political situation, and the online survival of Taiwan ’s political parties and politicians will be under the guidance of the U.S. military and the cyber army under its guidance. Around. The large-scale deletion of social groups and accounts from Facebook, coupled with Facebook itself being an American enterprise, is enough to reasonably suspect that U.S. Cyber Warfare Command has penetrated the Taiwan election through specific channels and agent cyber forces.
Big draw Taiwan pockets
In addition, in the provisions of the 1260C on the "Taiwan Relations Act" and the 1260D "Congressional Opinions", similar to previous years, they again requested the implementation of the "Taiwan Relations Act", emphasizing the continued arms sales to Taiwan to support Taiwan's asymmetric combat capabilities. However, no matter whether it is the "Taiwan Relations Act", the "National Defense Authorization Act" over the years, or other relevant official reports and statements of the United States, they have never formally promised that the U.S. military has an obligation to cooperate with the defense of Taiwan's military alliance. Space can be kept aside during wartime. In this way, the US arms sales to Taiwan are actually paying Taiwan taxpayers a lot of money and paying protection fees that have no guarantee.
The 1260D "Congressional Opinion" also mentioned that in order to expand the scope and scope of humanitarian assistance and disaster response cooperation, the US Defense Secretary should consider adopting options that include exercises and docking of warships. In addition, it also proposed that U.S. warships maintain normality through Taiwan The Strait and encouraged other US allies to follow suit. The above approach is by no means a guarantee of Taiwan's security and peace across the Taiwan Straits, because it will inevitably force mainland China to make the necessary military response. The Taiwan Strait will become increasingly turbulent under constant friction and heating, and the war in the Taiwan Strait will probably be imminent.
The DPP will only accept the entire contents of the US National Defense Authorization Law, and even shouted and thanked the United States for supporting Taiwan ’s freedom, democracy, and security. However, I do not know that under the control of the US military, Taiwan ’s Internet freedom will soon be lost. Taiwan Democracy will be played by American secret operations, and Taiwan's security will be tied to American chariots and become a front line sacrificing pawn. So if you really want to "reverse infiltration, take care of 'sovereignty, and protect security", ask the DPP to bravely say "No" to the United States first!
Zhu Songling, a professor at the Taiwan Research Institute of Beijing Union University, recently commented on the Huaxia Jingwei website that the United States and Taiwan have made new moves in information linkage. Method, jointly conduct cyber offensive and defensive warfare exercises with Taiwan, and share with the Taiwan authorities the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's automatic pointer sharing system, and share the so-called cyber threat pointers with the high speed of the machine, find new tools for deeper intervention in Taiwan, and also sell for the future 5G products in the United States have made the groundwork. In addition, the United States must set up an "International Cyber Security Center of Excellence" in Taiwan in order to better use Taiwan as a springboard for its information security cooperation with other countries or regions in the Indo-Pacific region.
The DPP pushed the "Reverse Penetration Law" all day, citing various "unnecessary reasons", but expressed "thank you" for such naked intervention and interference in the United States. Its sad position and shamelessness really refreshed the people. Look and feel.
