China says it may cancel diplomatic trip to Taiwan Taiwan stocks hammered by fears of military conflict with China

HONG KONG (July 16, 1999 6:37 a.m. EDT http://www.nandotimes.com) - Furious at what it sees as separatist moves by Taiwan, China has put its southern military regions on alert to go onto a war footing, Hong Kong newspapers reported Friday.

Chinese President Jiang Zemin signed a military order on Tuesday telling forces in the southern cities of Nanjing and Guangzhou to be on alert for war preparations, the Sun daily said, citing unnamed sources.

The sources said naval and air forces in the Taiwan Strait were also directed to go to combat readiness.

Jiang, who is also head of the powerful central military commission, made the orders, saying it was "meaningless" to carry out talks with Taiwan following comments last Saturday by Taiwan President Lee Teng-hui.

Cross-strait tensions escalated Thursday after Beijing warned it would crush any attempts by Taiwan to pursue independence, following the declaration by Lee in an interview with German radio that Taiwan was a separate state.

Taiwan on Thursday urged China to settle their differences peacefully but also put troops on its frontline Kinmen island on heightened alert.

Hong Kong's Sing Tao daily also reported unusual military movements in Fujian province, opposite Taiwan, which Beijing deems is a renegade province.

It said several Chinese domestic flights were delayed from 45 minutes to four hours on Thursday, with commercial planes having to change course owing to military movements in the area.

The Sun also reported that some 110 civilian vessels in Shezhi in Fujiang province had been mobilized for a drill on Thursday.

It further quoted the sources as saying that Vice Premier Qiang Qichen had declared a planned visit by senior Chinese envoy Wang Daohan to Taiwan later this year was now "pointless" after Lee's comments.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Zhang Qiyue on Thursday warned that "Taiwan leader Lee Teng-hui should not underestimate the firm resolve of the Chinese government in safeguarding Chinese sovereignty, dignity and territorial integrity."

In an apparent bid to soothe Beijing, Taiwan Premier Vincent Siew reiterated Taiwan's determination to push ahead with dialogue with China.

Lee infuriated Beijing by telling Deutsche Welle radio that cross-strait ties should be redefined as "nation-to-nation, or at least as special state-to-state relations."

Take a look at the last three posts,

The Chinese, Canadian telephones, and sloppy economics...not to mention some idiod at doggs@zian.net who thinks God is coming back to thump heads soon.

And absolutley nothing to do with Y2K !!!

Your pathetic doomers! I don't need any more proof than that. You could find TEOTWAWKI in a box of tainted wheaties. Boy oh boy do you people need help. And a sense of humor.

(hey, how did we know that the Serbs didn't shoot down that stealth fighter? ...because it wasn't filled with innocent women and children!)

"tainted wheaties" -- that's great, I'll pass it on!

Sheesh, we need a little humor, to go with the rest of this stuff.

And the global caldron continues to boil. WHAT will Y2K trigger?

Hey Suck...As I stated, my post (Canadian Telcom) is for informational purposes only. I never said anything about it being a result of Y2K. Posting a news thread does not a "Doomer" make.

Interested parties can read the thread or skip it if they so choose.

So, Suck, when was the last time you contributed something of substance to our little discussion board here?

The problems between China and Taiwan are quite significant. This has threatened war in the past involving the US, and could well again. Today, tensions are increasing rapidly.

On the other hand, it is quite hard to scientifically prove the predictions of a 16th century psychic.

Personally, the only reason Y2K concerns me deeply is due to war. Everything else is manageable, but war could easily get "out of hand". Y2K could be the trigger. Lots of hungry, angry people in many countries at once is not good. The most optimistic Y2K analysts viewing the global situation concede that there will be lots of problems "over there".

If virtually either side drops a bomb, or a missle (from the sky) even the non nuke kind, and it evokes a confrontation I guess we could say The old Frenchman hit the nail on the head. Given that bomb's are dropped pretty regularly these days I'd say its better than even money. How about it, what odd's anyone give on a Nostradamus hit..

Hey suck, its one thing to knock Y2K but come on wake up and smell the coffee!!! There are a large number of things that can trigger global change. I think a war with China, N. Korea, middle east would fit the bill. Be part of the problem not the solution thats your motto, right!!!

From what I recall, we no longer have any carriers over in the pacific rim. Are all the carriers being used for Kosovo and Iraq at present? Just curious.

Electricity to Russian Air Defenses in Far East Cut Over Debts

MOSCOW (AP) - An unpaid electricity bill led to the temporary loss of radar in Russia's Far East, officials said Tuesday.

The cutoff temporarily incapacitated military radars in the Khabarovsk region on the border with China, local air defense chief Anatoly Nogovitsyn said.

Power was also cut intermittently for the past three days to other regional military bases, including units of the Strategic Missile Forces, which control nuclear weapons in the area.

The central command of the Strategic Missile Forces later said in a statement that the cutoff had only affected support facilities, not combat units.

It blamed the government for the cuts, saying that the Defense Ministry had received only 10 percent of funds allocated in this year's budget for electricity payments.

The military has run up $5.6 million in power and heating debts to the local power company, Khabarovskenergo, Interfax said.

Energy officials have repeatedly cut off power to different branches of the armed forces to get them to pay their bills, even though President Boris Yeltsin's administration has banned power cuts to military installations.


The world is falling apart in very dangerous places, JIT for Y2K.
Some revengeful terrorist opportunist is going to take advantage.
Pray for peace.
