Chinese military aircraft and ships penetrate "Taiwan space" in the latest "almost daily display" of the use of force - (Tweet)  Washington - Chinese military aircraft and ships penetrated the airspace and territorial waters of Taiwan again early Wednesday morning in what has become an almost daily show of force against the island.  Taiwan's defense ministry said four military aircraft and three Chinese navy ships were spotted around 6 a.m. local time.   The Ministry of Defense confirmed that Taiwan's armed forces are monitoring the situation, and have assigned Navy aircraft and ships and ground-based missile systems (CAP) to respond to China's activities.  China's incursion into Taiwan has been an almost daily occurrence for weeks as tensions between "the two countries" escalate.  Taiwan seceded from the mainland in 1949 after a civil war and has no formal relations with it, but is linked to billions of dollars in trade and investment.  Tensions escalated after former US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited the island in August, becoming the most senior US official to visit the island in 25 years.  Lai Ching-te, who is currently Taiwan's vice president and assumed the new role of the ruling Democratic Progress Party, pledged to support the island's self-governing democracy in the face of what he described as Chinese authoritarianism.
