Taiwanese radio enthusiasts compare Chinese warplanes to flights
The audio is reportedly one of the top secret talks among military commanders and details plans for an attack involving 140,000 troops. The file, released by Lude Media, is a meeting of the leaders of the Chinese Communist Party, which has discussed holding part of China on the battlefield to prepare for a “final” battle for control of Taiwan and the South China Sea.
The audio and photograph, taken secretly, was published on Lud Media by a US-based Chinese refugee who said the recording had been leaked by senior members of the military.
He is thought to have survived an earlier attempt to oust him following Mr Jiang’s intervention in Taiwan.
A spokesman was quoted as saying in the English translation: “We will not look back to start a war, to crush the independence of Taiwan and the enemy, and to defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity.”
He adds: “United, we must be strong as a fortress. We must ensure supply and strategic victory.”

General Zhou, the commander of the Guangdong Military Region, was among those who attended the meeting.

Taiwan is a thriving democracy but Beijing sees the island as its own territory and has never given up the use of force to bring it under its control.
China on Friday launched its third aircraft carrier, named Fujian, in the province opposite Taiwan.
A senior Taiwanese official familiar with the island’s security plans told Reuters news agency that the new carrier, China, had flagged its ambition in the region to better launch its power in the Pacific.

The largest army in the world
This month, for the first time, the defense chiefs of China and the United States held face-to-face talks, with both sides insisting on their opposing views on Taiwan’s right to self-determination.
Earlier this month, the Chinese military announced that it was conducting combat “readiness patrols” in the seas and airspace around Taiwan.
It said patrols were a necessary action in response to the “millbreak” between Washington and Taipei.
US President Joe Biden has angered Beijing by signaling a change in US policy towards Taiwan, saying the United States would join forces if China invaded the island.
The rocket was fired by a Taiwanese Army AH-1W helicopter during an anti-landing exercise in 2006.
China’s Ministry of Commerce has also said it “strongly” opposes the launch of a US-Taiwan trade initiative.
Beijing’s warplanes have continued to pound Taiwan, sending clear warnings in the direction of the island.
The United States on Tuesday backed Taiwan’s claim that the Strait, which separates the island from the Chinese mainland, is an international waterway.
This was another refutation of Beijing’s claim to sovereignty on the strategic route.
The Strait of Taiwan has been the subject of frequent military tensions since the government of the defeated Republic of China fled to Taiwan in 1949 after losing the civil war with the Communists who founded the People’s Republic of China.
In recent years, U.S. warships from the Allies, including Britain and Canada, have been sailing across the strait, sparking outrage in Beijing.
China’s Foreign Ministry said on Monday that “the country has sovereignty, sovereignty and jurisdiction over the Taiwan Strait.”
“When some countries call the Taiwan Strait ‘international waters’, it is a false claim.”
