Don't believe? Will explain:
Before all the Pelosi and Taiwan mess, the Chinese military almost never used the phrase "中国军队不会坐视不管", which directly means: "The Chinese army will not sit on its hands (?)
"不会坐视不管" is actually quite a serious threat that has only been used 2 (two) (!) times in history.
This first happened on October 3, 1950, during an urgent meeting between Zhou Enlai and the Indian ambassador in China, when he asked the Indian side to convey to the US a warning: "If the US Army crosses the 38th parallel, the Chinese Army will not 坐视不管!".
In 1964, Zhou Enlai again repeated the same words through the President of Pakistan: "The US army must not cross the 17th parallel, any aggression against the Democratic Republic of Vietnam will be regarded as aggression against China, the Chinese army will not 坐视不管!
As we know, China was involved in both the Korean War and the War to Counter the American Threat in Vietnam following these warnings. For those who think that China will not make any moves, I advise you to think again.
Never underestimate how differently China sees the world.
