Not being satisfied with abandoning Americans to terrorists, Joe Biden is getting ready to abandon an entire country, Taiwan. The proof of that is in statements by Jen Psaki and Anthony Blinken. When they were asked if Biden would back up Taiwan militarily, neither one would answer the question. They both said that Biden would make sure that Taiwan would receive all of the help they needed to defend themselves.
Isn’t that what they said about Afghanistan? This is even worse because it pits a country of 1.447 billion against a country with less than 24 million. And militarily there is no comparison between the two.
Taiwan will fall just like Afghanistan did. The outcome would not even be in question. The problem for this country is that China will get tens of billions in US weapons that the Chinese can use and even duplicate. That creates quite a national security issue for this country.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken dodged answering a question from CNN host Dana Bash on Sunday on just how far, Biden will go to defend Taiwan and it appears it’s not very far at all. For years this country has been the only thing stopping China from taking over Tai3wan and now Biden is signaling that he is not going to go to war over it. I wonder how many Hunter paintings China bought.
DANA BASH, CNN HOST: President Biden said at CNN’s town hall last week that the U.S. would come to Taiwan’s defense if China invaded. Your spokesperson said there is no change in U.S. position. So I just want to clarify: Has the U.S. committed directly to the Taiwanese government that it will come to Taiwan’s defense if China invades?
ANTONY BLINKEN, SECRETARY OF STATE: There is no change in our policy. We’ve had a longstanding commitment that, by the way, then-Senator Biden strongly supported when he was in the United States Senate, a longstanding commitment pursuant to the Taiwan Relations Act to make sure that Taiwan has the means to defend itself, and we stand by that. The president stood by that strongly, and we want to make sure that no one takes any unilateral action that would disrupt the status quo with regard to Taiwan. That hasn’t changed.
BASH: You are the secretary of state, and that was very, very perfect diplo-speak, so I just wanted – for people who don’t speak that language, can you clarify what that exactly means? Are you now saying that the United States would not come to Taiwan’s defense if attacked? Can you be specific, yes or no?
BLINKEN: Dana, again, what I can tell you is that we remain committed, resolutely committed, to our responsibilities under the Taiwan Relations Act, including making sure that Taiwan has the ability to defend itself from any aggression.
BASH: Okay. Just one more follow on that. The president said specifically that the U.S. would. That’s not what you’re saying, correct?
BLINKEN: The president has for a long time, including when he was a senator voting for the Taiwan Relations Act, made clear that we will do everything necessary to make sure that Taiwan has the means to defend itself.
