officer needed twitter to tell customers it was having massive technical difficulties. and then he apologized. facebook services coming back online now may take some time to get to 100 percent, to every small and large business family, an individual who depends on us. i'm sorry, the outage also shut down operations at facebook's california headquarters. no phones, no computers. some workers reportedly using zoom to hold meeting is a good reminder. the internet is incredibly fragile. it actually can have problems like this arise and not work for long periods. typically, we don't really experience it much anymore. it used to be a lot more common, like a decade ago. some found the outage at facebook, instagram and what's app funny, but for whatsapp users, analysts say the disruption could have been catastrophic. what's app is
10:03 am
tremendously important for communication in a lot of parts of the globe. i mean, it does raise questions around, you know, how important it is for there to be redundancy, but also questions around, you know, should private companies be solely in control of infrastructure? so critical to communications and the outage comes as facebook is under fire for how it does business. us regulator, st. facebook is a monopoly and should be broken apart. a move, the company opposes a spoke note last week. the senators grilled a facebook official about a whistle blowers allegations the company refuses to block hate speech bullying and other forms of harmful messaging from its sites that whistleblower just gave her 1st tv interview explaining why she thinks this is the case. thing i saw facebook over and over again was there were conflicts of interest between what was good for the public and what was gave for facebook. and facebook over and over again shows

10:05 am
but certainly it comes at a precarious time. and it's been interesting to watch both critics and supporters of facebook and facebook itself. say, see, this is how important we are. and the critic saying this is why no one company should be in charge of this much of the internet, and it sort of goes against the idea of the decentralized internet. whereas facebook is saying, you know, we're sorry, we're sorry. we took something so vital to so many people, so it creates an interesting backdrop ahead of tomorrow's hearings. people in the united states in particular, didn't feel it in the same way as people globally where whatsapp is a key to communications and payment systems. but again, globally, as you know, what's app is tremendously important for communication in a lot of parts of the globe. i'm, it does raise questions around, you know, how important it is for there to be redundancy, but also questions around, you know, should private companies be solely in control of infrastructure. so critical to

communications, anti ones premier says the territory is on the highlands over beijing continued military intimidation. premier suit sing, china made the announcement author, record number of chinese aircraft entered it as faith. highlands ministered fences, 565 digit pass into territory in 24 hours. and $148.00 chinese plains since friday . a china has recently ramped up pressure on taiwan, which it says is part of its territory. oh, on etiology you, taiwan definitely needs to be on alert. china is increasingly over talks the world has also seen china's repeated violations of rage, no pace, and pressure on taiwan. so democratic countries have repeatedly issued warnings that our countrymen have to be self reliant. we have also seen the president ceaselessly supporting the national army. we must come together as one and strengthen ourselves only then will countries that want to annexed high one,
10:07 am
not dare to easily resort to force. so let's david. so now we can speak to drew thompson, who's a visiting senior research fellow at the lee kwan you school of public policy in singapore. in a former u. s. defense department officials joins us of our skype from singapore drink 1st up. so there's been this continued chinese, their presence for more than a year, doing china's up in the ante with a, with an end game in sight. so the find some of the last 4 days had been unprecedented in terms of their size and frequency of these large sorties and stepping them up over the course of the china is national holiday. and such large flights really indicates that this is a political warfare effort. and part of a massive coercion campaign against the leadership of taiwan and the taiwanese people. and it's part, i think, not just of a military campaign, but an economic, diplomatic and information campaign as well. to think china has
10:08 am
a real intention of one day taking taiwan. certainly they've stated that intention unification is a key objective for president shaking pang. he stated as much he stated in 2013, that this is an a question that should not be left for future generations. so he's, he's also asserted that he intends to use force to unify taiwan if it cannot be accomplished peacefully. so the possibility of war exists, but it doesn't seem like it's going to happen right away, but it's certainly an option that beijing is reserving for itself to taiwan for its pilot says it will never compromise and yield to threats. at what point will this kind this be resolved? you know, some point something's got to give. well, i think president tying one has played this very carefully. taiwan hath responded
10:09 am
cautiously to this recent uptake can flights they've exercise restraint. so for instance, you haven't seen reports about taiwan fighter bombers fly in to harass these flights. you haven't heard about air defense radars being used to, to paint or to target these chinese aircraft in international airspace. so they've been showing restraint. and at the same time, president tying one is expressed very clearly that she is willing to engage with beijing, presuming that they can engage as equals and without preconditions, those terms are unacceptable to china. but i think the door remains open to the possibility of cross street engagement and dialogue. should china choose to go that route at the moment that you know, china accuses washington of making things worse. a feeling the fun, if you like, how to what degree is that true? do you think? well, there's certainly an escalate anesco latoria dynamic occurring. and as china steps
10:10 am
up, it's military emissions and it's coercive pressure. the u. s. is that and under pressure to respond and to reassure its partner in taiwan and to reassure u. s. allies in the region of its commitment to its partners. and part of that is rhetorical. so we heard you a state department yesterday state very clearly that us support and relationship with taiwan is rock solid, is the term they use. and we also saw the u. s. s. ronald reagan aircraft carrier return to the western pacific after its mission in the middle east concluded. and just yesterday, it was a participated in a 6 nation exercise involving b. u. s. s. our carl vinson, another aircraft carrier, as well as the british aircraft carrier. queen elizabeth and the japanese helicopter destroyer as well. so you had 3 major aircraft carriers and, and other support vessels and frigates from i think new zealand, canada,
10:11 am
and the netherlands as well. so you had a run multi national coalition exercising together in the western pacific. and that's partly a response to china's assertiveness. okay. drew thompson, appreciate your perspective. thanks very much. my pleasure. was the postponement is approved. the law giving the government sweeping promised to deal with so called foreign interference banassi authorities to force social media platforms and website operators to provide user information to block content appeals will be heard by tribunal. not a coat, writes, group reports without borders is warning the law could be used against independent leave your out as concerns grove, a chinese real estate, john evergreen's, financial health. the 2nd property developer has failed to repair debt. fantasia holdings was due to make a payment of $205000000.00 to his bondholders on monday. investors are already worried that housing job ever ground group might collapse, have
