Analysts Predict China’s Potential Approach in Taiwan Crisis

Former US National Security Advisor John Bolton has predicted that the United States and its allies will soon face a crisis in the South China Sea, with China considering a blockade around Taiwan followed by an attempt to take over the island.

Bolton believes that China aims to keep Taiwan’s infrastructure intact and would initially impose an air and naval blockade to gauge the response from America and its allies.

The purpose would be to create a crisis and test whether countries such as the United States and Japan would come to Taiwan’s aid.

The scenario presented by Bolton suggests a different approach than an outright invasion, as China seeks to incorporate Taiwan’s production facilities and infrastructure into its capabilities.

These developments have sparked concerns about a potential conflict, given the heated rhetoric from both sides.

However, analysts argue that China may opt for alternative strategies rather than a full-scale military invasion, highlighting the importance of supply lines and international responses in the Pacific region.
