Treason and Resistance to Pension Reform in Taiwan

Reform to Taiwan’s military pension threatens to upend its national security and upset the US security calculus in the Asia-Pacific. Anxiety among Taiwan’s military has spilled over into opposition to President Tsai Ing-wen, resulting in a growing shift of support from Taiwan to mainland China.

Does a “Rising China” Pose a Threat to the US and the Region?

The greatest concern stems from China’s potential hegemonic status in the world and “the ideological incompatibility of China with the Western value system.” However, the only aspect which can be considered a threat is when there are challenges to China’s core national interests.
