The US State Department has approved the potential sale of 100 Boeing-made Harpoon Coastal Defense Systems to Taiwan in a deal that has a potential value of up to $2.37 billion (€2.03 billion), the Pentagon said on Monday. 

“The United States maintains an abiding interest in peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait and considers the security of Taiwan central to the security and stability of the broader Indo-Pacific region,” the State Department said. It said the sale would not alter the military balance in the region.

Harpoon missiles are capable of striking ships and land targets. More

  1. I don’t know if anybodies pointed this out to China but it’s illegal for Lockheed Martin, Boeing and Raytheon to sell anything to the Chicoms. It also break DFAR restrictions to purchase any material from them. But nice headline anyway.

  2. Title Correction: $2.37 billion not $237 billion, though I’m sure Taiwan would gladly buy that much in defense from China if they could afford it.

  3. Biden sold out our spies and assets in China. They are all dead or missing.

    Democrats invite their spies into our colleges, corporations, and fund BLM. Drive Feinstein around for 10 years.

    Let’s stop pretending. We are in a cold war that has gotten hot at the Indian border.

  4. The Chinese know that a war with Taiwan would wind up killing the Chinese economy and that’s the only thing keeping China going. A war with Taiwan would also make a conflict with India more likely.
