China has been shooting missiles at Taiwan, sending military planes into the air identification zone next to its airspace, and attempting the control the Taiwan strait. This is all part of China's attempt to intimidate Taiwan, using psychological warfare make Taiwan submit before the first shot is ever fired. However there's another tactic that they're using, which can be seen by the drones that are buzzing all around Taiwan. In this episode of China Unscripted we discuss how China is making the US look weak, what's behind the Chinese spy balloon and spy base news, and how China is interfering in Taiwan's elections.
