    Wonder how the US would react if China decided to supply North Korea with the equivalents of these weapons...

    NK already has LR MLRS, artillery & BMs, so these wouldn't make any difference.

    They already have nuclear weapons technology too but do you think China could had over a couple of artillery shell sized nuclear warheads and the blueprints and information to mass produce them?

    Like the stuff the US is handing over to Taiwan... it doesn't matter as long as China does not invade or attack Taiwan... and it wont matter to South Korea or Japan or the US as long as they don't invade or attack North Korea...

    Taiwan says that China can completely paralyze their command of the sea, chain of command & air defence & all other defence electronic systems without even putting boots on the ground; as well as saying China has the ability to fully monitor Taiwan’s every step, military.

    Not spotted any comments on the Taiwanese/US angst at the Chinese flights over water near Taiwan with many confusing an ADZ with an ADIZ.

    Best part is that much of Taiwan's ADIZ is over China's mainland, no doubt due to it have been laid out in 1946 by the US.

    Connor discusses Washington’s plans to turn Taiwan into a major arms depot, preparing for a war with China the U.S. is provoking. Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen has announced ramp ups in arms purchases and production, while ruling out contact with Beijing unless the island’s “sovereignty” is respected. Taipei is focusing on producing precision missiles, high-performance naval vessels, and smaller, mobile systems focusing on “comprehensive asymmetric warfare capabilities.”

    So why spend all that money on weapons?

    Taiwan has to spend money on US weapons because the US buys lots of electronic components from Taiwan and they don't like the massive trade imbalance... just the same as a while back the UK imported spices and silk and other things from China but China didn't buy very much from the UK so the UK sold opium to China.

    The damage it caused to China was horrific, which is why it is amusing that it has repeated itself now that China produce Fentanyl and exports it to the US for US doctors to prescribe to the American masses to keep them numb and docile.

    the other highly relevant reason: most nations, even the US allies, won't sell arms to Taiwan to avoid angering China.
    That's why the Taiwanese had to build their own diesel subs, with some outside help, since the US r not doing it anymore.
