The Free Times reported on Feb. 3, in response to the escalating military threat from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP ), President Tsai Ing-wen went to the Ministry of National Defense on Feb. 2; she emphasized that in order to strengthen the combat capability of research and analysis, the Ministry of National Defense has approved an increase in the staff of the Intelligence Research Center.
During his presidency, Trump has been tough on the CCP from the political, economic, and military aspects. The Biden administration is still uncertain about its attitude toward the CCP . Besides, the virus epidemic is getting worse. All countries are busy controlling the epidemic. The CCP seems to see this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and wants to take this opportunity to annex Taiwan.
According to the communist aircraft dynamic message in January, the CCP army has been sending warplanes to harass Taiwan almost every day. Taiwan’s Ministry of National Defense said that on the 23rd, one Y8 anti-submarine patrol aircraft, eight Boom 6Ks, and four J-16s approached the air defense identification zone in the southwest part of Taiwan. The Taiwan Air Force dispatched air patrol troops to respond and used anti-aircraft missiles to track and monitor the approach.
This staffing increase is of great significance. The Intelligence Research Center (IRC) of the Office of the Undersecretary of Intelligence is critical in intelligence acquisition. After the IR center issued the intelligence search order, each intelligence search unit must first make a preliminary judgment based on the information available. After the initial evaluation, the data is passed on to the chiefs and relevant units for use. The military now has about 215,000 personnel on staff. This increase in personnel also includes Navy mobile missile units.
