Biden Regime to Sell $1.1 Billion More Arms to Taiwan

Dominant Biden regime hardliners are recklessly pushing things for direct confrontation with Russia over Ukraine and with China over Taiwan.

What’s building is the ominous threat of possible war in Europe and the Asia/Pacific against nations able to hit back hard with overwhelming power if belligerently attacked by an aggressor.

According to US MSM, the Biden intends to ask Congress for rubber-stamp approval of another $1.1 billion worth of arms to China’s breakaway province — once again in defiance of the One China principle.

What stood the test of time since enactment of the 1979 Taiwan Relations Act — affirming no US intention to establish formal diplomatic relations with Taipei — has been virtually declared null and void by the Trump and Biden regimes, a hostile affront to China’s sovereignty.

At its Monday and Tuesday press briefings, China’s Foreign Ministry didn’t comment on the new US arms sale.

In response to an earlier US announced one to Taiwan, China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman, Zhou Lijian, said the following:

US sales to the breakaway province “seriously interfere with China’s internal affairs, seriously damage China’s sovereignty and security interests, send a seriously wrong signal to Taiwan independence forces, and severely damage China-US relations and peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait,” adding:

“China will make a legitimate and necessary response according to how the situation develops.”

In response to the latest MSM reported upcoming arms sale to Taiwan, spokesman for China’s US embassy, Liu Pengyu, said the following:

“The US side needs to immediately stop arms sales to and military contact with Taiwan, stop creating factors that could lead to tensions in the Taiwan Strait, and follow through on (its) statement of not supporting ‘Taiwan independence.’ ”

The new US arms package reportedly includes:

60 AGM-84L Harpoon Block II anti-ship missiles for $355 million

100 AIM-9X Block II Sidewinder tactical air-to-air missiles for $85.6 million, and 

$655.4 million for a surveillance radar contract extension.

On Tuesday, an unnamed Chinese official reportedly said that US arms sales to Taiwan strengthen pro-independence elements to resist reunification with the mainland.

At the same time, these sales to the island won’t change the military balance between Beijing and its breakaway province.

Repeated arms sales to Taiwan escalate regional tensions in pursuit of US imperial aims.

According to Bloomberg News on August 29:

“The State Department informally notified Congress of the sale late Monday,” adding:

“(N)otification marks the beginning of several weeks of staff consultations that will result in a formal arms-sale proposal from the State Department.”

“With support for Taiwan running high among both Republicans and Democrats in Congress, the package will likely face little resistance from lawmakers.”

According to the Biden regime’s State Department, it doesn’t comment on proposed arms sales until Congress is formally notified.

When approved, the latest package will be the largest one since a $2.4 billion sale to Taiwan in October 2020 and largest one since the illegitimate Biden regime usurped power by election rigging.

Its dominant hardliners and likeminded congressional members are recklessly challenging China by repeated arms sales — 4 so far by the Biden regime with a fifth package upcoming.

The Biden regime and Congress also increased numbers of provocative visits to the island.

And provocative saber-rattling transits through the Taiwan Strait by US warships risk direct confrontation with China by going too far.

Would either wing of the US war party tolerate the presence of Russian or Chinese warships positioned in international waters near the US east or west coasts, in the Gulf of Mexico, or deployed near the US border in Canada or the United Mexican states?

No elaboration of what’s clear is needed.

What’s going on is part of US war on China by other means, including decades of repeated arms sales to Taiwan, a breached promise to go the other way.

On August 17, 1982, the US/PRC Joint Communique included a promise by the Reagan admin. to reduce arms sales to Taiwan.

Instead, since the January 1979 Taiwan Relations Act, over $70 billion worth of US arms have been sold to Taipei — further proof that hegemon USA can never be trusted, its word never its bond.

Last Friday, China’s Xinhua stressed the above reality, saying:

So-called US “rules-based international order (is code language for its longstanding pursuit of) hegemony (over other nations by) destroy(ing) rules and order” — as mandated by the UN Charter and other international laws.

US actions on the world stage prove time and again that its ruling regimes pursue what they “see fit.”

They repeatedly and illegally interfere in the internal affairs of other countries, toppling their governments, replacing them with subservient to US interests puppet rule.

At the same time, virtually everything the US agreed to with other nations it breached.

Time and again, Beijing stressed that Taiwan is sovereign Chinese territory to be reunited with the mainland.

That it won’t tolerate US interference in this core issue.

Challenging China over Taiwan risks direct confrontation.

Is that where things are heading?

If the empire of lies pushes things beyond a point of no return with China and Russia, will its core NATO allies go along or break with the US on this crucial issue to avoid possible global war with nukes?

If the worst of scenarios unfolds ahead between hegemon USA and Sino/Russia, will Britain, France, Germany and other Western states risk self-destruction by going along with their higher power in Washington or make a clean break in self-defense?

The fullness of time will tell.

  1. The definition of insanity…we fit it, with precision and “exceptional” belligerence, arrogance, stupidity, and…asylum-level insanity. (Memo: We [sic] purport, no less, and improbably, to be the crazies in charge of the asylum…wow: a recipe for full-on, apocalyptic “end times” SubMemo: Are some/many of these fundamentalist/’Christian’-Zionist bizarre creatures — now in positions of “real power” in successive US regimes — actively seeking such “end times” for their own selfish purposes? One hates to contemplate the answer….)

    Thank you, sir. I need your breaths of sanity in these days of my growing dementia and inability to focus, when I find myself typically of a morning able to think and function with some clarity and resolve for an hour or so.

    Viva China! Viva a world of harmony, convergence, active listening, diplomacy [that lost art…] and an aspirational commitment to advance the cause of civilization across this vast, complex, vastly suffering globe of fragility but also astonishing resilience…if given the chance.

  2. Like the Pharisees exploiting covenant ceremonies and blaspheming for monetary gain, the PENTAGRAM creates tensions for the MIC and politicians to make more ill-gotten blood money.

    After evil Angel Pelosi’s visit, subsequent official visits to Taiwan prove that Pelosi’s visit was all part of a never-ending evil plan to cause more bloodshed anywhere after the failed Hong Kong color revolution.

    With undefendable Taiwan spending so much public money on American weapons, Tsai is now easily the richest woman in Taiwan from kickbacks, just like how American politicians stole the alms. Very soon, unpatriotic Tsai and Zelensky may have to flee to DC to break bread with their handlers and plan more subversions of the homelands.
