Definition of combatant in a war

Sat Apr 13, 2019 9:21 am

I have recently heard a rather interesting suggestion, which said that when Chinese armed police (paramilitary organization controlled by the army with all military hardware) start capturing Taiwan, any individuals who stand up and joined the fight against China cam be seen as committed the crime of treason against China, and thus they can all be executed legally according to the law of China, and by doing so China will be able to acquire Taiwan peacefully without having to worry about any possible unrest in the future.

It sound like there are something really wrong in this statement but I can't figure out what's the exact reason why this is wrong to China given that they would not worry about using all the means available to silence people disagree with them and it just seems like business as usual from back into a few decades ago.

How to make it clear that it is wrong for them to do so when simple statements like "it is actually unjust to kill people and commit genocide because of what you want" will definitely fall on their deaf ear and make listeners think it's just western culture and power trying to force their own value around the world so as to stop China from becoming unify and strong? How to crack this sort of myth?

*Note: Background of the post is that, recently there was a professional American Chinese political analyst who frequently appears on state TV to analyse cross strait affairs being kicked out of Taiwan allegedly for going to make a speech about plans that how Taiwan will unify with China and that his stance on military actions against Taiwan are unacceptable. He responded by saying that it should be legal to talk about unification id even independence is allowed to be discussed in Taiwan, and that he have never supposed forceful take over Taiwan by military means. It appears that his view on military action against Taiwan will not result in a forceful conquest but a peaceful unification because he claim that Taiwanese people will peacefully welcome Chinese army as soon as China have decided to send their troops across the Taiwan strait.

This is how it works? A country claiming that any rise to a occupying power of a defacto independent nation will be shot and therefore this power can occupy it without any resistance?

Let's see what the Taiwanees have to say about this with their military.
Many happy landings, greetings from The Netherlands!

O think the Taiwanese would be crushed quickly in a war with the PRC. Now if the US steps in, it will be a different story.
When wasn't America great?
