Biden Administration Backtracks on Taiwan – U.S. Does Not Back Independence

Biden Administration Backtracks on Taiwan – U.S. Does Not Back Independence

The U.S. Department of State has backtracked on behalf of the Biden Administration, changing its fact sheet to say:

“We oppose any unilateral changes to the status quo from either side; we do not support Taiwan independence;(emphasis added) and we expect cross-Strait differences to be resolved by peaceful means. We continue to have an abiding interest in peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait.  Consistent with the Taiwan Relations Act, the United States makes available defense articles and services as necessary to enable Taiwan to maintain a sufficient self-defense capability -– and maintains our capacity to resist any resort to force or other forms of coercion that would jeopardize the security, or the social or economic system, of Taiwan.”

This is a very odd way of saying this.  In other words, we don’t support their independence but we will fight to maintain their independence.

Taiwan was established in 1949, after a defeated Chiang Kai-shek was thrown out by the Chinese Communists.  The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has maintained that Taiwan is merely a breakaway region from China that must be reunited with the mainland. Taiwan has been self-governed for all of that time, and never under the rule of the CCP.

Joe Biden’s statement to the effect that we would back Taiwan militarily was one of the very few statements of his that I have supported. I believe very firmly that leaving Taiwan at the mercy of the Chinese would be horrific for the Taiwanese and would lead to a belligerent China that threatens the world.

But we all know that Joe Biden is not in charge. Joe’s handlers and the bureaucrats run everything.  They are trying to prevent him from starting a war that he can’t manage.

They may have a point.

In his current state, President Biden is not in any condition to be bold. If he were, the Russian invasion of Ukraine would never have happened.

But appeasing China is a bad idea as well. China may very well have plans to invade Taiwan during the administration f the weakest we have had in recent history.

    Biden is backtracking due the legal fact that he is not the Commander in Chief because Donald J Trump is the Commander in Chief. Biden cannot do anything about wars legally.

      Hello, tin foil hat, is there any intelligence in there?

      Ode to a lost Trumplicant believer in The Big Lie as told by The Big Liar, thank you Pink Floyd.

      “Hello? (Hello, hello, hello)
      Is there anybody in there?
      Just nod if you can hear me
      Is there anyone home?
      Come on (Come on, come on), now
      I hear you’re feeling down
      Well, I can ease your pain
      And get you on your feet again
      Relax (Relax, relax, relax)
      I’ll need some information first
      Just the basic facts
      Can you show me where it hurts?

      There is no pain, you are receding
      A distant ship, smoke on the horizon
      You are only coming through in waves
      Your lips move, but I can’t hear what you’re saying
      When I was a child, I had a fever
      My hands felt just like two balloons
      Now I’ve got that feeling once again
      I can’t explain, you would not understand
      This is not how I am

      I have become comfortably numb”

          Can you spell? Maybe lay off the 50-cent words if above your grade level. Or buy a clue.

          Why so miserable all the time?

            My spelling may be a bit off at times, but miserable? Since I’m not a demented Rat, I’m far from miserable. Maybe you like our country falling apart around our ears (which does seem to be a democrat trait), but I don’t. Maybe you and Ben should wake up and smell what’s going on. I’ll give you a hint, it’s not coffee.

            You are very defensive and seem to have a lot of hate backing up. Must be miserable.

      Donald Trump legitimately lost the position. He has a big L on his forehead!

        That would probably be you, so, thank you for playing. (By the way, how about telling us all the so-called good points of the Bribem cartel).

    This man ( Joe Biden) should not be in office. You have to backtrack everything he says, How can you run a country like this?

    I agree with not appeasing China. You have made a totally unfounded statement that is a projection of your own mind and not grounded in reality and cannot be proven right or wrong: ” “In his current state, President Biden is not in any condition to be bold. If he were, the Russian invasion of Ukraine would never have happened.”
