Biden Commits US to Fight for Taiwan, White House Soon After “Clarifies” the Statement

AP

President Joe Biden said Monday that the U.S. would intervene militarily if China were to invade Taiwan, saying the burden to protect Taiwan is “even stronger’ after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. It was one of the most forceful presidential statements in support of self-governing in decades. More

Wash Post quickly published a “clarification” of Biden’s statement.

A White House official said Biden’s comments simply reiterated a pledge made through a 1979 law that the United States would provide Taiwan with the military means for self-defense. But in the current context — a presidential visit to Seoul and Tokyo and the West’s urgent confrontation with Russia over Ukraine — the words had a more powerful resonance and prompted reactions by various countries in the region.

The United States has long maintained a policy of strategic ambiguity toward Taiwan, meaning it is deliberately unclear what it would do if it comes to defending Taiwan. The “One China” policy is a longstanding bit of diplomatic legerdemain under which the U.S. recognizes China’s position that there is only one Chinese government.

  1. Biden has failed on every front of international diplomacy.

    Every statement he makes has to be clarified (CORRECTED) by the Department of State or the Whitehouse.

    Biden and Failure, Dementia, embarrassment and corruption are synonymous.

  3. first off, the only thing O’Biden should commit is himself … either to a mental institution or eating a bullet

    second, wtf does “It would dislocate the entire region … ” mean? how does one ‘dislocate’ an ‘entire region’? … unless he meant he wouldn’t be able to locate it on a map …. something he probably can’t do anyway!

    FJB! we are so fooked

  4. Biden: High gas prices are an “an incredible transition” away from fossil fuels.

    I see an incredible transistion from affluence to poverty.

    This is a nightmare for everyone in the world, except for the evil ones leading this transition.

  5. This STUPID SOB is gonna get the world killed. I remember back when Barry Goldwater ran for President in 64 I believe. The dems called him a war-monger and ran ads showing Goldwater in tatters with the world destroyed behind him saying ‘I didn’t mean it’. Brandon has no clue what he means and, unless we’re lucky, somebody’s gonna call him on it one day.

  6. The exact same thing happened back in October. He made the same statement, and Chuckie had to walk it back the next day. This imbecile can not be trained.
