China Strikes Back: Great Power Rivalry Has Come to the Middle East


The Middle East’s governments are concerned about the great power tech race.
The United States and China’s renewed rivalry for global dominance in the Middle East is mostly seen in the area of technological innovation. There are various theaters where this friction manifests itself, but much of the tension derives from Washington’s attempts to contain China’s expanding geopolitical power and global economic and technical innovation. This rivalry entails a full-scale, all-encompassing great power geopolitical struggle for money, dominance, and influence in East Asia and around the globe. It includes rival ideologies and frameworks for political governance and economic growth, as well as opposing viewpoints on the composition and principles of the global order, all of which are motivated by conflicting interests. Each team is committed to improving its overall position and range of options in comparison to the other.
Middle East specialists have paid a lot of attention to the Arab upheavals and their aftermath over the past ten years. Russia, China, and to a lesser extent India and the European Union, have sought increased influence in the Middle East while the United States has debated its position in the region. Rarely does commentary on the great power rivalry in the Middle East provide insight into the desires and strategies of the major players. Although competition between major powers has not yet resulted in actual conflict, influential individuals have continued to try to gain, maintain, and expand influence and prestige at the expense of one another, and cooperation has remained episodic and incidental.


WW3 looming as ‘no good options’ remain in ‘dangerous’ China-US conflict over Taiwan

According to experts, the likelihood of WORLD WAR 3 is increasing as the US and China approach a “hazardous position” over Taiwan.
As China continues to threaten the island, US politicians have visited Taiwan this week, following Nancy Pelosi’s lead. Following Beijing’s ire over Ms. Pelsoi’s visit earlier this month, military exercises were conducted close to Taiwan. Senator Marsha Blackburn vowed that China would not stop her from traveling to Taiwan. She stated: “Regular high-level trips to Taipei reflect long-standing U.S. policy,” Blackburn said in a statement. “Taiwan is our strongest ally in the Indo-Pacific Region.” “I won’t be intimidated by Communist China into abandoning the island.”

China views Taiwan as a colony and the island has not formally proclaimed its independence.
However, the US has defended Taiwan’s right to self-government and even vowed to support the nation if attacked.
According to Kristen Gunness, a Chinese military specialist at the Rand Corporation think tank, the tension between Washington and Beijing is creating a “hazardous situation.”


Taiwan Warns It Will Shoot Down Chinese Drones That Intrude Into Its Territory

Amid tensions in the Taiwan Strait, Taiwan has said that it will fire down drones that approach its Kinmen island from the mainland. In a statement, the Kinmen Defense Command threatened to chase Chinese drones out of Kinmen County and shoot them down if warnings were disregarded.
The declaration was made one week after a Chinese civilian drone breached Taiwanese airspace and captured images of two soldiers guarding a building. Later, these images were widely shared on the Chinese social networking site Sina Weibo.
Then, according to Taiwanese military sources, the island nation used warning flares to fend off Chinese drone attacks but refrained from taking more drastic action, like shooting down aircraft, in order to prevent tensions across the Taiwan Strait from rising higher.
