In particular the Philippines controls the southern end of the Bashi channel, which puts the Philippines in a position to make a Chinese invasion of Taiwan much more difficult. This chokepoint is one of China's main strategic weakness, especially in view of of the possible confrontation with the US. For this reason the Philippines, which now host new US bases, are in a position to halt an invasion of Taiwan. In this video we will analyze US and China's reliance on this strait and we will try to answer two major questions. Why is the Bashi Channel so important in the scenario of an invasion of Taiwan? How does this influence a possible US - China conflict? ▀▀▀▀▀ For inquiries: If you liked this video, please consider supporting the channel on Patreon: Many thanks to: Narration by Jasper: Proofreading by Asif Many thanks to the Patreon and the Discord communities! ▀▀▀▀▀▀ Music: Premiumbeats Stock footage: Pexels Softwares: Animations made with ♥️ with Blender, Editing in DaVinci Resolve, and map analysis and editing in QGIS. ▀▀▀▀▀▀ If you are interested in how to make a map in Blender check out ​ @AlaskanFX 's tutorials!
