a guide by day, but for the past 2 decades, he spent his spare time taking pictures of military exercise when taiwan responded to chinese 3 years earlier this month with me. so tastes of its own. she was right there, fill me in me a shout. when i got here more than 2 hours before the announced time of the test and i was worried that many people would come. i wanted to get the best spot. shan caught way at the full moon view. radar operator, she also listened to radio, macy's, and check movement by both the taiwanese and chinese armed forces around the island . he said high one has not done enough to improve its military strains all month long. they shall we have never wanted to attack anyone and how cold. yeah, we are only developing weapons for self defense. some way we should do more of that

is not enabling. so he's happy to see that here in camden county, a weeping manufacturer is carrying out new sale and racket tastes. taiwan faces unprecedented publication from china, and now it is much more eager to develop its own metos. and this military base behind me, a tiny sweeping developer, is conducting a series of lo fi, me so tastes these next most. they are held here regularly, both escalating thirds from china. they carry more significant than ever. military experts say hi, one needs to establish its own defense to g, but now one based worley on how many weapons it has. so woman, we must get better at a symmetric warfare. if we try to compete on the number weapons we will be dragged
3:34 pm
to an arms race, a woman ha poor. that would be really bad for us to do a warm night. john simple leader. he saith taiwan. has tried to move away from buying weapons from just one country you ace. but it has proved almost impossible plant. she's not a good job though many countries. i did a variety of reasons for refusing to sell arms to taiwan. that how andrea is tang chanting job. for example, we have always wanted to acquire submarines from germany for rubbing she the message is clear, tie one needs to be more confident in developing its own defensive capabilities. only learn can he stayed up to learn trade from abroad and know ways that threat felt more acutely, perhaps, than taiwanese gym, an island which lies less than 5 kilometers from china coastline. and the most recent american editor, richard walker jones be now from jenman. richard,
3:35 pm
from where you are, give us a sense of the scale of the threat. the tie ones facing yet will be rash. there really is a sense at the moment that the threat from china is as big as his ever been. and that there's a sense of a potential kind of moment of truth approaching down the line. but just to give you a little bit of seen setting, 1st of all of where i am here, i'm on an island actually called little jin man, which is offered gen man. this cluster of islands are controlled by taiwan very close to the chinese mainland. and if you just look behind me across the bay here through the haze, you can see the chinese city of sharman across the water. less than 5 kilometers, just like you said, it really it's it feel so close at these islands, jim and they're no stranger to the china threat. so at the very end of the civil war, 1949. the p. a lay a we're, we're landing on these shores trying to take these islands at the very end of the
3:36 pm
civil war. and you still see these spikes, these defensive spikes, which are against landings taking place here a which had dotted all around these islands everywhere said these islands really exude this are a history of the conflict between china and taiwan. but just a very recently, during through chinese exercises that took place to complain about the visits of us speaker nancy pelosi. one of these items says the next one along a was buzzed by a chinese drone. and the chinese released footage from that drone, which showed taiwanese soldiers on the ground, throwing rocks at this drone to try to assure it away. and this really brought home some of the problems that taiwan faces at the moment that she approximately of china. but also the fact that all they had to show away these drones were rocks. so the time when his government has been rushing now to say that they're going to secure for next year, all sorts of anti drone technologies. but, but really
3:37 pm
a kind of a little palpable and rather embarrassing reminded their of the threat and of, or will most of you to the other question of, what is taiwan stroke to do to defend itself from a much bigger neighbor yet? well, i mean, this is really an ongoing debate that's been heightened this year, not just because of the policy visit, but also because of the ukraine war. that's been really something of a wake up call. not just for tie when he's politicians for tie when he's military, but also ordinary time in his people thinking, gosh, if it can happen day, it can happen here. and this is added to the debate and we heard referred to just in the report there about asymmetric warfare. the fact that taiwan will never be able to match up with the chinese in terms of numbers or in terms of military budget. so that it needs to be smart about using its limited military budget to buy the kind of weapons that it might be able to use or to fight a bit like the ukrainians in, in a, an invasion scenario. but even that is controversial with some people saying, well,
3:38 pm
you can't just go for the sort of weapons that allow you to fight that want someone to invaded. you also want to deter that invasion to really what you need is the sort of balance between big ticket military items and the smaller scale ones. but this does bring us also to a certain amount of tension between tie one of the united states with a sense that i've been getting from some people talking to time. i've been talking to privately here in taiwan that they get the sense that the americans still been dragging their feet and providing some of the weapons that they really need. so all is not necessarily particularly well also in the relationship between the u. s. and taiwan. in dealing with this threat from china, your last walk of a moment of truth for approaching a richer because that her, her moment of truth arrived there because of man to spur, man, super lucy's recent visit. what i, i don't think so. i mean, there are all sorts of different take some nancy pelosi visit and what the chinese exercise that took place after it. mean some people i've been talking to here to
3:39 pm
say that they do feel that the chinese did show degree of restraint in those exercises. but what they also did was establish what we talked about as a new normal, that china's a fighter jets, for instance, now go further than they did across what's called a median line. at the line sort of in between taiwan and china. on the, in the taiwan strait. but the kind of moment of truth i'm really talking about here is the fact that china says that it wants to re unify as they put it with taiwan. and a great charity of the people of taiwan. say that they simply don't want that. how do you resolve that then without going to war? richard walker labrador can duplicate so much for joining us from goodman island and tensions and what i want to having an impact on other countries in the region as well. japan, for instance, it's western most island yacht agony lies just a 108 kilometers east of taiwan. it is in fact closer to taipei than it is to talk
3:40 pm

3:41 pm
but it feels like half a world away. fishing and pony breeding are the economic life blood of the island which rarely receives visitors. are cameras are a cause of interest straight away. i walk a lot fear here because of tell you on right. i couldn't think of another reason vehicle the so that because i do actually on many skunk. ok. normally i don't think about this about taking to thought, but i recently started worrying about the future. can you see the did the future of the island, or rather the protection of it has traditionally been entrusted to the so called shita mythical guardians made of stone that keep evil spirits away. but the mayor isn't happy to rely on them for protection against china. he wants to be able to evacuate the island in the event of an attack, which is a challenge, considering the small harbor and short runway. while still it's all about
