No. Probably nobody in the mainland believes that military exercises will scare the island's politicians into recognizing the PRC sovereignty. Instead the goal is:
1. Achieve military readiness, in case action needs to be taken to retain Taiwan.
2. Demonstrate to all islanders (not just politicians) that the PRC is serious about defending its sovereignty and eventually resolving the split caused by the civil war via re-unification. Thus encouraging people to stop the agitation, in the interest of preserving peace.>今の中国のやり方は「基地外」としか
How do you suggest it should be handled? By rolling over meekly and allowing the island to become a giant base for an aggressive foreign power and the nearest bulwark in a potential naval blockade of the mainland?>押してダメなら押して押して押しまくれ、ってどこの阿呆が唱えてるんだろう？
This critique applies well to the "independence" agitators in and outside Taiwan who continue seeking conflict after they were told "don't" multiple times. The decision is not up to Taiwan residents alone, but to all Chinese nationals on both sides of the strait. The civil war resolution is still pending.>そしてそれを世界中が見てるんだよ？
The whole world officially upholds the existence of "one China", not "two Chinas", nor "one China and one Taiwan", and yet we see USA and some of their vassals purposefully undermining this and trying to provoke a conflict. Do they think the rest of the world is blind?
