The Greeks used a wooden horse ……

TAIPEI, Taiwan – Chinese leader Xi Jinping said on Saturday that a “peaceful” reunification of Taiwan with China’s mainland was in Beijing’s interests, despite ratcheted up military threats against the self-governing island.

The Trojan Horse was the wooden horse used by the Greeks, during the Trojan War, to enter the city of Troy and win the war. There is no Trojan Horse in Homer’s Iliad, with the poem ending before the war is concluded.

China is using high-tech, very sophisticate technology (war planes) to mesmerize and put the fear in their enemy. I say; BEWARE OF CHINESE BEARING FORTUNE COOKIES.

After showing a great deal of force, now Charlie Chan (AKA Xi Jinping) wants to play the nice guy and dumb like a fox.

Old Italian saying and my advice to Taiwan; tieni il dito sul grilletto e gli occhi sul maiale (keep your finger on the trigger and you eye on the hog).

Chinese President Xi Jinping looks as he arrives at an event commemorating the 110th anniversary of Xinhai Revolution at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, Saturday, Oct. 9, 2021. Xi said on Saturday reunification with Taiwan must happen and will happen peacefully, despite a ratcheting-up of China's threats to attack the island.

The 60 Minutes Australia painted an entirely different picture of Charlie. He is not the sweet old grand-daddy he wants to come off as.

I hope for the sake of all mankind, the Chinese and Taiwan can resolve their differences. Looking at the big picture; there is plenty to go around to satisfy everyone, BUTT some greed mongers want it all.
