BREAKING WORLD WAR III NEWS: China Is Carrying Out Taiwan Invasion “Dry Run” by Cutting Internet Cables Using Mysterious “Dark Fleet.” Daniel Whyte III, President of Gospel Light Society International, Says Everybody Needs to Take China Seriously Because When You Start Cutting Off the Internet, You Start Cutting Off Everything
CHINA has been cutting Taiwan’s internet cables as a “dry run” to terrorise the island ahead of a possible invasion, experts have warned.
Beijing has been accused of deploying its “dark fleet” of spy ships disguised as cargo vessels or fishing boats to carry out the attacks.
The self-governing island is regarded by China as being part of its territory and has vowed to reunite it with the mainland by force if necessary.
The drills went up a gear last year when a senior US politician visited the island, then into overdrive last weekend when its president, Tsai Ying-wen, visited America.
But beneath the radar and away from its bellicose threats and sabre rattling, China has been preparing the ground for the isolation and ultimate capture of Taiwan.
Residents of the Taiwanese islands of Matsu, which are just 10 miles from the mainland, recently found that the internet cables connecting to Taiwan proper had been cut – again.
A Chinese fishing boat and a cargo ship seen lurking in the area were fingered as suspects for what would have been the 27th such incident.
Rick Fisher, an expert on China’s military from the International Assessment and Strategy Center, said the cutting internet cables is a key part of any invasion strategy.
“In order to achieve an effective blockade of Taiwan and to maximize psychological pressure to force an early surrender, the severing of undersea communication cables would be a very high priority for the early stages of a Chinese invasion.
“Any pre-war cutting of undersea communication cables to Taiwan’s offshore islands would constitute practice for the People’s Liberation Army.
“There is considerable military value for China in cutting undersea communication cables from Taiwan’s offshore islands near the coast of China, as they host valuable Taiwanese intelligence gathering sensors.”
In the meantime, cutting cable serves as a warning for the rest of Taiwan.
“Turning them into starving hostages only serves to warn most of Taiwan’s population that the Chinese Communist leadership will not hesitate to terrorise Taiwan and that its potential occupation will be horrific, forever.”
Internet cables, which can be anywhere between 0.79 inches to 1.18 inches wide, are encased in steel armour in shallow waters where they’re more likely to run into ships.
But despite the protection, cables can get cut quite easily by ships and their anchors, or fishing boats using steel nets.
An investigation in 2021 found evidence that China’s state-owned fishing fleet maybe a front for intelligence operations.
Elisabeth Braw, a senior fellow at the American Enterprise, who has written extensively about Taiwan’s defence, said it’s highly unlikely the cables were cut by accident.
