清凉山下: Thanks for keeping my comment here. At least you seems can tolerate different opinions and want to have a civilized discussion....
Be my guest.
Normally I have no problem with different opinions, not even with those that are either less civilized or presented in a less civilized fashion than I otherwise would have preferred, like what you previously came up with, so long as they are not too ...unleashed, if you will.
清凉山下: ...Is the air carrier passing through Taiwan strait an amateur show?...
It is certainly a "show", by no means an amateur one though.
Americans put up this show to send a clear message, "Be the world ensured, with Taiwan we stand".
They don't hide this message high "in the cloud" for Chinese with "a good vision" to look for, they present this message right before China's eyes. And instead of launching missiles around along their course through Taiwan Strait, they just pass through without making much noise. The show is plain and simple, as the message is clear, powerful, and cannot be ignored.
I call a show performed in this style "a professional show".
清凉山下: ...Any show have a real purpose behind it, and sometimes that purpose is hidden in the cloud and need a good vision to see it..
You just reinforced my case of calling it "an amateur show", instead of a professional one.
In short, that "show" was not designed for the professionals, or people with "a good vision", who can easily decode the message "hidden in the cloud". They understood too well that China needed a "show", as I said before, they told China "Go ahead then, the stage is all yours".
Instead, that show was designed for the mere mortals in China who do not have "a good vision" and therefore could not be "inspired" or become excited by a show displayed in an otherwise professional fashion.
A show of such nature is called "an amateur show".
Thanks for keeping my comment here. At least you seems can tolerate different opinions and want to have a civilized discussion. For that reason I would like to say a few more words here. Between big nations, no show ever is an amateur show. Any show have a real purpose behind it, and sometimes that purpose is hidden in the cloud and need a good vision to see it. Is the air carrier passing through Taiwan strait an amateur show? Definitely not. There are many ways to fight, like trade war, sanctions, cuan fang, military exercises etc., and you even don’t see a drop a real blood, but is actually really bloody. Usually is the losing side crying for next time.

I am not sure you've read the game right. Obviously there's been no real fight yet but an amateur play, as one is furiously cursing the air while the other calmly says, "Easy, man, easy. I know you badly need to put up a show. Go ahead then, the stage is all yours, for now. Blow it not though."
