Time for US carriers in the Strait

The US Navy’s aircraft carrier battle groups are the most dramatic symbol of Washington’s military and geopolitical power. They were critical to winning World War II in the Pacific and have since been deployed in the Indo-Pacific region to communicate resolve against potential adversaries of the US.

The presence or absence of the US Seventh Fleet — the configuration of US Navy ships and aircraft in the Indo-Pacific region built around the carriers — generally determines whether war or peace prevails in the region. In the immediate post-war period, Washington’s strategic planners in the administration of then-US president Harry Truman shockingly determined that the US’ Pacific security perimeter could exclude Taiwan and South Korea.

Pompeo raises alarm on Xi’s China

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo just dropped the other shoe in the White House’s multidimensional response to the hydra-headed existential challenge from communist China. Yet his sweeping address at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum on Thursday was the most powerful yet — a virtual declaration of a new cold war and a call for global delegitimization of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s (習近平) rule through what amounts to regime change.

Although he did not explicitly mention either a cold war or regime change — terms that send shudders through the foreign policy establishment — Pompeo made it clear that the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) ideology and worldview are incompatible with a peaceful civilized world.

Upset about a NT$14 billion (US$485.5 million) budget to continue construction of the Fourth Nuclear Power Plant in Gongliao District (貢寮), New Taipei City (新北市), that was passed by the legislature on Monday, anti--nuclear protesters yesterday rallied in front of the Legislative Yuan in Taipei to demand a referendum on the matter.

The rally organizer, the Taiwan Environmental Protection Union (TEPU), said the Fourth Nuclear Power Plant was a patchwork design assembled by Taiwan Power Co (Taipower), and could threaten the health of people living in Taiwan.

TEPU attempted to submit a petition to the legislature yesterday, asking for the decision to allow operation of the Fourth Nuclear Power Plant to be decided by public referendum, “but they won’t let us inside,” TEPU secretary-general Lee Cho-han (李卓翰) said.
