Now that crossing Russia’s red lines has led to war, the Fake Biden administration is Hell-bent on crossing China’s.
US President Joe Biden indicated on Monday that Washington is willing to use military force to defend Taiwan if necessary. Speaking at a joint press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, in Tokyo, he explained that the US sees the idea of China “going in” with its troops as unacceptable.
When asked if the US would become directly involved in a conflict between China and Taiwan, including through the use of military force, Biden said “Yes,” adding that “it’s a commitment we made.” The US leader has previously said Washington respects the ‘One China’ policy, by which it recognizes that there is only one China led by Beijing.
Biden, however, maintained that China has no “jurisdiction to go in and use force to take over Taiwan.” The idea that the island nation “can be taken by force is just not appropriate. It will dislocate the whole region,” the US president added.
This isn’t really a surprise. The catastrophic failure of the neo-liberal world order pretty much ensured WWIII sooner or later, as there was no way the rulers of the Imperial USA were going to gracefully relinquish their global power and influence. The various Color Revolutions, both successful and failed, made it clear that they would choose the hard option.
