Taiwanese Official Lays Out China’s Plan to ‘Terminate Taiwan as It Is’

Gen. Vincent Wen-fan Chen, deputy director of Taiwan’s National Security Bureau, warned in the current issue of the Indo-Pacific Defense Forum magazine that Communist China is moving forward on a long-established plan to solve its Taiwanese “problem” by “terminating Taiwan as it is.”

Chen said Taiwan is standing on the front lines against Chinese influence operations across the Pacific region.

Building on remarks he made in an October 2019 speech, Chen said Taiwan occupies a “unique” position similar to Ukraine and the Baltic states hovering on the edge of Russia’s sphere of influence, but Taiwan is geographically alone in facing “the most powerful party-state in history” in a struggle between “liberal democracy and totalitarian dictatorship.”

“From the perspective of cognitive warfighting, defined as the capacity to weaponize knowledge, Taiwan has a unique vulnerability because Mandarin Chinese is the common language for both China and Taiwan,” he noted.
