Joe Biden Promises Military Support To Stop China if It Invades Taiwan

Biden’s Comments Suggest War – Leave Admin Scrambling to “Clarify”

( – America has long exercised a policy of strategic ambiguity when it comes to Taiwan. Basically, this means the US remains deliberately unclear about whether it would intervene if China invades the island. President Joe Biden recently made a statement that seemed to have reversed that policy.

On May 23, Biden and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida held a press conference together in Tokyo. A reporter asked the US president if he would commit to getting involved militarily if China attacks Taiwan, a possibility that seems more likely as the months wear on. Biden responded, “Yes.” The reporter, seemingly in disbelief, asked, “You are?” Biden said that’s what the US committed to doing.

The White House walked back Biden’s remarks later, saying there was no shift in US policy.

Later that day, Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Wang Wenbin told the press that China has a “firm resolve, staunch will and strong ability” to protect its territorial interests and sovereignty.

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (R-GA), however, praised Biden during an interview on “Fox and Friends” for his remarks. He went on to say the White House walking back the president’s comments is “nuts.”

What do you think about the president’s remarks?
