Not every stretch of highway would be suitable for use as an airstrip if that is what you are suggesting. There are certain requirements regarding the dimensions of the highway and its path. Curved highways do not make good airstrips for obvious reasons. You also have to have infrastructure in place for it to be a viable airstrip. China would first go after those highway strips that have specifically been designed and intended for use as an airstrip and then target the most viable alternatives. This would not insure that there are no places for a plane to touch down, that would just be an absurd expectation. However, China would not have to act on the expectation that no plane in the air could land. Instead, it would be looking to cause enough logistical difficulties to seriously impede Taiwan's ability to wage a continued air war. Even if a plane is able to land successfully it still needs to be resupplied and have a viable takeoff route.Also, China can't destroy all of the highways with its missiles.
Like I said, that is an automatic result of its political system. Because of limitations on public elections Hong Kong is regarded as partly free despite the level of actual political freedom in Hong Kong.Taiwan is far higher political rights
I saw that about press freedom. I also saw the part where South Korea has the same rating on press freedom.Freedom House ranks Taiwan as free with a score of 24 (a score that has dropped slightly during the KMT administration) and Hong Kong as Partly free with a score of 33. And if you read through the RSF (Reporters Without Borders) site, it is clear that Taiwan has better press freedoms than Hong Kong has.
The difference is that Hong Kong had not been under such a process before being handed over to Chinese rule.Except that there is no record of this with the Chinese government. The fact is that Taiwan has rights under international law. We have an open, free-wheeling political process here that Hong Kong does not have. Comparing political freedom between Hong Kong and Taiwan is an utter joke. Of course Taiwan is more free. And we like it that way.
