According to Taiwan media reports, the DPP authorities intend to invite U.S. military personnel to Taiwan next year to evaluate the "combat power" of the Taiwan military. The 15-day reception is expected to cost 15.25 million Taiwan dollars, or about 3.52 million yuan. It can be described as "big hand"!
The news broke out on the island. Some netizens on the island ironically said that the DPP is paying an alternative "protection fee" to the United States. Some netizens commented that Cai Yingwen's "financial wealth" was indeed cut when he cut down the pension of military training staff. The DPP invites the U.S. military to come to Taiwan for "public expense sightseeing", but requires taxpayers to pay for it. What is the reason? The DPP does n’t treat the people ’s money as money. “How many families can be supported by 15 million people?” Someone even teased and said, “I ’m willing to lose my bones.” ATM.
Regarding this plan of the Taiwan authorities, Taiwan senior media person Tang Xianglong said that spending ten million yuan to entertain US personnel is not only a question of how much the Taiwan military spends, but how many people come from the US. In fact, the openness of military personnel exchanges between the United States and Taiwan is intended to enhance military exchanges between the United States and Taiwan.
On the issue of military ties between Taiwan and the United States, the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs has repeatedly emphasized that it urges the United States to strictly abide by the one-China principle and the provisions of the three Sino-US joint communiques, to cease any form of official exchanges and military ties with Taiwan, and to stop selling arms to Taiwan . It is hoped that the United States will deal with Taiwan-related issues carefully, so as not to damage Sino-US relations and peace and stability across the Taiwan Straits. The Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council has also stated on many occasions that the Taiwan issue is related to China's national sovereignty and territorial integrity, and we are firmly opposed to any form of military ties between the United States and Taiwan.
This move of the Tsai authorities ignored the cross-strait relations and the lives of the people of Taiwan. They blindly wanted to please the United States by "paying protection fees" and realize their political intent against the mainland. However, Cai Yingwen's delusion will not come true. Anyone who can see it clearly can see that the relationship between Taiwan and the United States is "I like you, but you only care about my money." It is Cai ’s wishful thinking.
