"We have a political system that awards office to the most ruthless, cunning, and selfish of mortals, then act surprised when those those willing to do anything to win power are equally willing to do anything with it. "

The Chinese Coast Guard is stepping up patrols near the Taiwanese-controlled Kinmen Islands following an incident involving Taiwan’s Coast Guard that ended with two Chinese fishermen drowning.

The Kinmen Islands are controlled by Taiwan but are located just off the coast of mainland China, only about 3 miles away from the Chinese city of Xiamen.

Last week, Taiwan’s Coast Guard said a Chinese fishing boat entered prohibited waters off Kinmen, known as Quemoy in the mainland. The Taiwanese Coast Guard claimed the fishermen refused a request for an inspection, and their boat capsized as they tried to flee the area.

A total of four people were on the boat, and two were pronounced dead. After the incident, the Chinese Coast Guard said it would start regular patrols in the area to “maintain operational order in sea areas and safeguard fishermen’s lives and property.”

Claire's Observations:  It has recently been reported that US "Military Advisors"  have been deployed to Kimnen  As stated on 7 April, 2024, Dave De Camp, Antiwar.com: "US military advisors have been deployed to Kinmen, a group of small islands that are controlled by Taiwan but located just off the coast of mainland China, Taiwan’s TVBS has reported.

When asked to confirm the highly provocative deployment to Kinmen, the Pentagon said it could not comment. “We don’t have a comment on specific operations, engagements, or training” with Taiwan, Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. Marty Meiners told Antiwar.com in an email.

“But I would highlight that our support for, and defense relationship with, Taiwan remains aligned against the current threat posed by the People’s Republic of China. Our commitment to Taiwan is rock-solid,” Meiners said."   

I would sincerely hope that the death of the two Chinese fishermen, was not the result of "US Military Advice" Letting people off with a "stern warning", is absolutely preferable to them getting killed as a result of being chased by the Taiwanese military.
