It Begins: UK Guardian Calls For The U.S. To Abandon Taiwan To China

China has become rather frisky with Taiwan since Surrender Joe was installed in office. Right now

China-Taiwan military tensions ‘worst in 40 years’

Tensions with China are at their worst in 40 years, Taiwan’s defence minister has said, warning of the risk of an accidental strike between the two.

Chiu Kuo-cheng’s comments came after China sent a “record number” of military jets into Taiwan’s air defence zone for four consecutive days.

Taiwan considers itself a sovereign state. China, however, views Taiwan as a breakaway province.

It has not ruled out the possible use of force to achieve unification.

And

The US must avoid war with China over Taiwan at all costs

China Votes BidenSince last Friday, the People’s Republic of China has launched a total of 155 warplanes – the most ever over four consecutive days – into Taiwan’s Air Defense Identification Zone; Ned Price said the state department was “very concerned”. There have been more than 500 such flights through nine months this year, as opposed to 300 all of last year.

Before war comes to the Indo-Pacific and Washington faces pressure to fight a potentially existential war, American policymakers must face the cold, hard reality that fighting China over Taiwan risks an almost-certain military defeat – and gambles we won’t stumble into a nuclear war.

Bluntly put, America should refuse to be drawn into a no-win war with Beijing. It needs to be said up front: there would be no palatable choice for Washington if China finally makes good on its decades-long threat to take Taiwan by force. Either choose a bad, bitter-tasting outcome or a self-destructive one in which our existence is put at risk.

Now, Lt Col Daniel Davis (ret) does make some good points about our military being unable to compete with China in the Pacific (thanks, Obama), but, has also been a big supporter of the U.S. pulling out of pretty much everywhere. So, this isn’t the big hardcore leftist type of surrender. But, it certainly opens the floodgates of the China lovers on the left and the isolationists on the right, and it’s of absolutely no surprise that the UK Guardian would run this piece

That’s not to suggest we stand passively aside and let China run over Taiwan with impunity. The most effective course of action for Washington would be to condemn China in the strongest possible terms, lead a global movement that will enact crippling sanctions against Beijing, and make them an international pariah. China’s pain wouldn’t be limited to economics, however.

And how, exactly, would all that work? What with China holding so much of the world’s debt and producing so much of the goods? Is any nation truly condemning China for COVID19? Does he actually think China would care?

And Biden?

(Reuters) U.S. President Joe Biden said on Tuesday that he has spoken to Chinese President Xi Jinping about Taiwan and they agreed to abide by the “Taiwan agreement”, as tensions have ratcheted up between Taipei and Beijing.

“I’ve spoken with Xi about Taiwan. We agree … we’ll abide by the Taiwan agreement,” he said. “We made it clear that I don’t think he should be doing anything other than abiding by the agreement.”

Biden appeared to be referring to Washington’s long-standing policy under which it officially recognizes Beijing rather than Taipei, and the Taiwan Relations Act, which makes clear that the U.S. decision to establish diplomatic ties with Beijing instead of Taiwan rests upon the expectation that the future of Taiwan will be determined by peaceful means.

While that act binds the United States to provide Taiwan with the means to defend itself, Washington only acknowledges China’s stance that the island belongs to it and that there is “one China”, and takes no position on Taiwan’s sovereignty.

Except, Washington has long protected the sovereignty of Taiwan from China. Especially under Republican presidents. And, surely China is looking at when Surrender Joe was Vice President and was there as Obama surrendered Crimea to Russia with barely a strongly worded letter.

Anyone think Biden would protect our ally Israel at this point?

    Biden’s approval rating has dropped to 38%, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday. That’s down from 42% three weeks ago and from a high of 50% in mid-February.

    “Battered on trust, doubted on leadership, and challenged on overall competency, President Biden is being hammered on all sides as his approval rating continues its downward slide to a number not seen since the tough scrutiny of the Trump administration,” Quinnipiac University polling analyst Tim Malloy said in a prepared statement.

    What most of youn haven’t hard bout is there were two elections last week. IN a district that is 75 percent hispanic two republicans got 51 percent of the vote to 3 democrats 48 percent. Oh course it was a run off to see who would run in the general in November.

    In another election Texas election the grass roots gop won against the establishment guy by 13 points after being outspent 2-1.

    A poll in Texas has blacks 30 percent gop. Hispanics 55 percent GOP. Women 73 percent GOP. It be looking like Texas gonna smash those commies in 2022. Biden is down 30 points in Texas and Harris is down 25 points to Trump.

    Them national news thingies dont tell you this chit. They just tell you lies.

    LETS GO BRANDON!!!!!! Nascar was even saying Fuk Joe Biden during an interview of the winner this weekend but of course NBC said they are chanting lets go Brandon. Ha. Ha Ha. People saying we need a divorce. No the left needs smashed into pieces and stuffed back into the toilet they emerged from with a giant collective flush by the right and Patriots everywhere.

    William Teach: Obama surrendered Crimea to Russia

    Crimea was not America’s to surrender. Russia earlier talked Ukraine out of agreements with the EU that could have protected the contested Crimea. Should we have gone to war over Crimea? Should we go to war over Taiwan?
