Similarities, Ukraine - Taiwan

Conflicts between nations and alliances seem to begin when one party lays claim to territory said to “belong” to it. On 1 September 1939 the Germans attacked the Westerplatte peninsula in the port of Gdańsk. This assault marks the beginning of the Second World War.

The Germans had long laid claim to “Danzig”, as they called it, and it had a 98% German population in 1939. (410,000)

The Russian position in regards to parts of Ukraine is now well known and it is asserting ownership by way of cannon fire at this time.

Xi Jinping just got installed for his third term as President in China and claims Chinese ownership of Taiwan, so far having failed to deliver on that promise.

Meanwhile, the Biden administration in the US asserts that Ukraine and Taiwan are both ‘independent’ nations (with a LOT of help from their friends, i.e. principally the backers of the Biden administration.)

Historically, a well known recipe for war. And WE are asked to pay the price.
