Biden Says They Will Continue Operations in Taiwan Despite China’s Warnings

The United States will still continue to sail warships and air operations in the Taiwan Strait, despite China’s protests against the provocative military exercises.

The Biden administration has not made many friends in the international relations department, and tensions with China are spilling over.

Instead of deterring a war between China and Taiwan, Biden appears to be fueling the fire with both his rhetoric and actions.

Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan despite China’s threats to her safety. That move created more animosity between the communist country and the U.S. When pressed about his thoughts, Biden simply said, “that was her decision.”

The Taiwan island comprises 23 million people and would not face a fair fight against China unless other countries became involved. With the Biden administration handing out billions to Ukraine while going through its war with Russia, it seems plausible that the U.S. will be a potential money bank for Taiwan, as well.

China claims they control the waterway of the Taiwan Strait. However, this has not stopped the U.S. Navy’s plans to sail ships through despite China’s warnings.

Colin H. Kahl, the undersecretary of defense for policy, said that China was trying to force Taiwan and international countries.

“And all I’ll say is we’re not going to take the bait, and it’s not going to work,” he said.

Kahl claims that the United States will keep going as usual and will not let China play a part in its decision-making process.

“What we’ll do instead is to continue to fly, to sail and operate wherever international law allows us to do so, and that includes in the Taiwan Strait,” he explained.

China has sent 20 destroyers and frigates around the waters of Taiwan, something which Biden said he was “concerned that they’re moving as much as they are.”

It does not appear that the U.S. is preparing for war despite the Biden administration’s consistent public statements backing Taiwan.

China’s nuclear-armed military poses a significant threat not only to Taiwan but to the nations that go against its regime.

It appears Democrat leadership is still holding climate change as the most significant humanitarian threat, all while inflation soars, gas prices hike and war tensions brew.
