From the COVID-19 pandemic to the growing crisis at the border, the first two months of Joe Biden’s Presidency have been a disaster.
But a new threat emerging could lead to catastrophic nuclear war.
And U.S. military officials are worried that Joe Biden will ignore this one dire warning.
In 2016, Donald Trump campaigned and won on a promise to take a hard, firm stance on China.
During his four years in office, Donald Trump made a lot of progress toward his goal of putting America First again.
But with Joe Biden in office, the Chinese senses weakness.
And American military officials are worried China is preparing to launch an all-out war against Taiwan any day now.
The New York Times reports:
American officials warn that China is growing more capable of invading the island democracy of nearly 24 million people, situated about 100 miles off the coast of mainland China, whose status has obsessed Beijing since Chinese nationalists retreated and formed a government there after the country’s 1949 Communist revolution.
Last month, the military commander for the Indo-Pacific region, Adm. Philip S. Davidson, described what he sees as a risk that China could try to reclaim Taiwan by force within the next six years.
And it’s not just The New York Times reporting that military officials are worried about China. The Associated Press also reported that the U.S. military believes China is accelerating its plans to seize control of Taiwan by force.
After the Communist Revolution, Taiwan broke away from China and considers itself the true China as that is where the recognized government of China fled to after the communists took over the mainland.
And even though the U.S. has observed a One China Policy where it only recognizes the communist run mainland China as the official “China,” America has also promised to defend Taiwan should the Communist Chinese invade and try to take over.
But with Joe Biden in office, the Chinese senses weakness and military officials believe they could strike Taiwan because they know Joe Biden wouldn’t do anything about it.
It could be only a matter of time before China makes an authoritarian military move in Taiwan or another independent people that could be the start of a world war.
