[Central News Agency] In the face of intelligence that the CCP is planning to invade Taiwan before 2027, former Chief of Staff Li Ximing said today that the determination to defend itself is more important than anything else. Taiwan must fight for a democratic system, not to cut off blood ties; and The CCP’s Achilles’ heel lies in the Chinese people. We must scold the Chinese Communist Party, but we must praise the 1.3 billion Chinese people.
Li Ximing participated in the Taipei International Book Fair today, and had a talk with Zhu Jingyi, academician of the Academia Sinica, on the topic of "Key Strategic Thinking for Taiwan Strait Security".

Li Ximing published the book "Taiwan's Odds" last year, which raised the topic. He said today that he has been promoting asymmetric combat methods, but don't think that buying needle missiles and javelin missiles can build asymmetric combat power. "That's the mark, isn't it?" Basically, this is strategy, and what is to be established is a strategy of asymmetric warfare" to organize force structure, weapons procurement, doctrine development, and force training programs.
Li Ximing said that politics and the military are nothing more than human nature. The first priority of Chinese leader Xi Jinping is to maintain his power, the second is to maintain the one-party dictatorship, and the third is to realize the Chinese dream. As long as we keep this weakness in mind and make good use of China The power of the people, let Xi Jinping know that it will be troublesome to move Taiwan, or it will collapse, and it will not make sense after deliberation, so he may not dare to act rashly.
Li Ximing pointed out that the Chinese Communist Party's culprit lies in the Chinese people. He has been telling politicians to scold the Chinese Communist Party severely, but to praise the 1.3 billion people and tell the Chinese people that you are very good and that the Communist Party is bad. Unfortunately, no one listens.
Zhu Jingyi: If you want to provoke me, I will fight against you
Zhu Jingyi said in the meeting that no matter what kind of combat it is, we must return to the questions often asked by the national army: "Who are we fighting for and why are we fighting?" Regarding this point, Taiwanese society has always lacked discussion, "You have to convince me (People), why am I fighting? What are we fighting for?” Zhu Jingyi’s answer to himself is, “I am defending Taiwan’s constitution and a life of democracy and freedom. This is our most precious thing.”
Zhu Jingyi mentioned that when he served as the vice president of Academia Sinica 20 years ago, the then president Li Yuanzhe once said to him that the Chinese on the other side always think that the cross-strait issue is a "ethnic" issue, but for the people of Taiwan, it is a "democratic" issue .
Zhu Jingyi said that Taiwan is facing an invading China, not to make a clean break with him in terms of blood and culture, but to maintain Taiwan's life, constitution and democratic system. If you want to provoke, I will fight against you. The concept should be clearly stated.
In this regard, Li Ximing also agrees with this statement.
Zhu Jingyi said that if there are only four years to deploy an asymmetrical combat plan, which items should be prioritized must be clarified, but the psychological foundation of "who to fight for and why" must be solid enough.
