‘A New Normal’: Experts Assuage Fears Chinese Redeployments Signal Plan to Attack Taiwan Soon

After a slew of redeployments of Chinese hardware to the southern Guangdong Province were reported in the media, fears grew that Beijing might be preparing an attack on Taiwan. However, experts have noted the situation seems to suggest an increase in tensions to “a new normal,” but not a coming attack.

On the morning of October 18, the Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post (SCMP) published an alarmist report about China “beefing” up its forces in Guangdong, especially with a rumored deployment of DF-17 hypersonic missiles to the region.

Andrei Chang, editor-in-chief of the Canada-based Kanwa Defense Review, told the SCMP the steady expansion of People’s Liberation Army (PLA) missile bases near Taiwan showed the PLA was “stepping up preparations for a war targeting Taiwan.”
