Biden Says US Would Intervene If China Attacks Taiwan

1844: Samuel Morse taps out “What hath God wrought” in the world’s first telegraph message.

President Joe Biden said the U.S. military would intervene if China were to strike against Taiwan — an eyebrow-raising remark that the White House later walked back.

At a news conference in Tokyo, a reporter asked Biden if the U.S. military would intervene if China attacked Taiwan.

“Yes — it’s a commitment we made,” Biden responded.

Per Axios, the U.S. has had a longstanding “strategic ambiguity” position regarding Taiwan. A White House official later said that Biden’s comment did not mean that position had changed, but experts believe that the president’s statement “deserves to be taken seriously.”

“It is a clear enough statement that the U.S. will not sit by if China attacks Taiwan,” said Grant Newsham, a retired Marine Corps colonel who now works as a research fellow at the Japan Forum for Strategic Studies.

The U.S. was “seeking to toughen their policy but without necessarily provoking China,” said James Brown, an associate professor at Temple University Japan.

    Probably intervene every bit as hard on CCP as we DIDN’T intervene in non-NATO corrupt Ukraine? Both what creepyjoe says and what we are told he means, may not be even close to reality if the biden-family (includes DNC) can profit from it and creepy-joe can stay awake.

  2. Gerald Ladd says:

    The guy is a moron. A drooling fool.

  3. Mike Lenahan says:

    He and the rest of our alleged leadership are living in La La land. It’s time people wake up and voice their concerns at how he snd his crew are destroying this country. Will we know this is the USA in just a few years or will it be the United socialist America?

  4. the old Marine says:

    Mike, you are so right, the other party has no balls to put a stop to all this crap. It has got to stop now, we can not last much longer. Let him and his family be the first to fight, then he would want a larger magazine and more bullets.
