The rulers of the United States appear to be desperately trying to ignite a war of some kind. National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan recently said: “I think it remains a distinct threat that there could be a military contingency around Taiwan.”
Sullivan made the comments while appearing on The David Rubenstein Show: Peer-to-Peer Conversations on Bloomberg TV. He added that the leadership in Beijing has “actually stated as official policy that it is not taking the invasion of Taiwan off the table.”
When asked to clarify Washington’s position on the issue, Sullivan replied that the Biden administration continues to “push back against any effort to change the status quo by force.”
All of the rhetoric seems to alert to one outcome: war.
While the Chinese Embassy in Washington did not immediately respond when Bloomberg reached out for comment, Beijing’s envoy stateside, Qin Gang, warned last month that the US had gone “too far” in the region. The diplomat stressed at the time that should the Biden administration further escalate the situation, China would be forced to respond. The ambassador also denied as “baseless” allegations that Beijing is planning a military offensive against Taiwan in the near future. –RT
Let’s not forget that the U.S. continues to provoke China by continuing to send political parasites to Taiwan. So far, China has not retaliated, but at some point, it will not longer be “bluffing.”
Taiwan has been de facto independent since 1949, after the losing side in the Chinese Civil War fled to the island and set up its own administration there. While only a handful of nations have since recognized Taiwan as a sovereign country, Taipei has long enjoyed close, unofficial ties with the US, with the latter supplying weapons to the island.-RT
China considers Taiwan a part of their territory while Taiwan’s political ruling class determines they have the right to rule the people living on the island.
