    Biden says U.S. willing to use force to defend Taiwan prompting backlash from China



    Key Points
    • When asked at a joint press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida whether the U.S. would be prepared to defend Taiwan if attacked, Biden replied: “Yes.”
    • Taiwan’s foreign ministry thanked Biden for reaffirming U.S. support if Beijing invaded the island.
    • However, China’s foreign ministry said the U.S. should not defend Taiwan independence, Reuters reported.


    Biden said. “We agree with the ‘one China’ policy. We signed on to it. All the attendant agreements [were] made from there. But the idea that that can be taken by force, just taken by force. It’s just not it’s just not appropriate.”

    Stirring stuff . . . your logic about Biden spending money when he . . . hasn't. Good thoughts begin elsewhere with you, don't they.

    I wonder if sabang knows, like fairly well everyone, that Taiwan is in the '100Billion Trade Club' with the US . . . and the US has a healthy trade surplus with the island.

    All this can be used to:

    No mention that his sitters have already walked baby Joe's babbling back? And of course if I were Taiwanese I might well be asking- why don't they have boots on the ground in Ukraine then? Or Chinese. Or Ukrainian.

    Yeah. What's happening in Ukraine sure looks desirable for the average Taiwanese person.

    China is fine with the status quo. And the US is walking away from the status quo

    China is far from fine with status quo. They have over the years stated Taiwan belongs to China and will be taken if necessary by force.

    Until 1978 when the criminal Nixon did his thing there were lots of boots on the ground in Taiwan. I was one of them in the 60s. Boots on a ROCN ship.

    Joe is spot on declaring if the PRC invades Taiwan, US boots on the ground will follow.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    China is fine with Taiwan larping as an independent country like it has been. But it will attack if the US starts making and aircraft carrier out of it.

    And the US is slowly inching towards that ends.

    This is Ukraine 2.0. Whoever changes the status quo.will be the one who started the war

    Thanks to Wladimir Putin. He has shaken the West from its deep sleep. We won't get back to sleep any time soon.
