Last week, US joint chiefs chairman Milley told West Point graduates to prepare for global war on Russia and China.
Warning about an “increased” potential for “significant international conflict,” he left unexplained that if it occurs, it’ll be made-in-the-USA.
Then on Monday at a news conference in Japan, the fake Biden said hegemon USA would defend Taiwan if attacked by China, adding:
“It’s a commitment we made.”
China has no “jurisdiction to go in and use force to take over Taiwan.”
“It will be another action similar to what happened in Ukraine.”
When diverging from remarks scripted for him to recite, the fake Biden has a foot-in-mouth problem.
So did the real JB, according to ABC News in January 2007, saying:
When “launching his (failed 2008) presidential campaign, Biden “experienc(ed) an ailment not entirely unknown to him: foot in mouth disease.”
In response to the fake Biden’s off-script remark, White House damage control said the following:
“(O)ur policy has not changed.”
“Our commitment (remains a) one-China policy (and to) to peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait.”
The fake JB “reiterated our commitment under the Taiwan Relations Act to provide Taiwan with the military means to defend itself.”
China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin responded sharply to his remarks, saying the following:
“China expresses strong dissatisfaction and firm opposition to the remarks by the US side.”
“There is but one China in the world.”
“Taiwan is an inalienable part of China’s territory, and the government of the People’s Republic of China is the sole legal government representing the whole of China.”
“This is a consensus of the international community and a political commitment made by the US to China.”
“The Taiwan question is purely China’s internal affair that brooks no foreign interference.”
“On issues concerning China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and other core interests, China has no room for compromise.”
“No one should underestimate the strong resolve, determination and capability of the Chinese people in safeguarding national sovereignty and territorial integrity.”
“No one should not stand in opposition to the 1.4 billion Chinese people.”
“We urge the US side to abide by the one-China principle and the stipulations in the three China-US joint communiques, honor its important commitment to not supporting ‘Taiwan independence.”
The Biden regime should “speak and act with prudence on the Taiwan question, and avoid sending any wrong signal to the ‘Taiwan independence’ separatist forces, lest it should seriously undermine peace across the Taiwan Strait and China-US relations.”
“China will take firm actions to safeguard its sovereignty and security interests.”
“We mean what we say.”
Time and again, Chinese officials said reunification between Taiwan and the mainland is inevitable.
Separately in South Korea over the weekend, the fake Biden committed to use of “nuclear deterrence” to defend the ROK, saying:
Hegemon USA will “us(e) the full range of (its) defense capabilities, including nuclear, conventional, and missile defense capabilities in support of” South Korea.
According to Asia/Pacific analyst Lee Seong-Hyon:
“This is the first time that (a US/ROK) statement stipulated the term ‘nuclear deterrence.’ ”
Singapore-based analyst Shawn Ho said he expects Pyongyang to “voice concern or opposition to” the US/ROK position.
According to geopolitical analyst/former Morgan Stanley Asia chairman, Stephen Roach, last week:
A Biden regime move toward Sino/US decoupling would be “a recipe for disaster for” both countries.
Since the Obama/Biden regime reasserted hegemon USA’s Indo/Pacific presence over a decade ago to check China and Russia regionally, especially since Trump’s trade/tariffs war on Beijing — continued by the fake Biden — Sino/US relations greatly worsened, Roach explained, adding:
“The current approach to conflict resolution, which can best be examined through the so-called Phase-One trade deal that was reached between the US and China in January of 2020, is a failed approach.”
“It has not worked at all in alleviating tensions.”
Just the opposite occurred.
Under both wings of its war party, the US failed “to recognize that the current framework of tariff escalation and sanctions on technology and other companies is counterproductive.”
“Both the US and China are heavily integrated with the rest of the world.”
“You can’t address these imbalances on a country-by-country basis.”
“If you want to restore greater balance, we in America need to save more and you in China need to save less, and that will be a very important step in resolving the trade imbalances.”
“The idea of improving our relationship by narrowing a bilateral trade imbalance is not only counterproductive, but it misses the real opportunity that we need to seize.”
“We need to look at growth rather than attempting to fix a multilateral trade imbalance by focusing incorrectly on bilateral trade deficits or surpluses.”
“We have the wrong approach. And we need a new approach.”
Roach left the issue of possible US aggression against China over Taiwan or other pretexts unaddressed.
US responsibility for unacceptable political, economic and trade relations pales in comparison to possible war between two major nuclear powers — launched by hegemon USA if occurs.
