(Natural News) In what are the Communist Chinese leaders’ strongest comments yet, as well as the biggest indication that they don’t fear Joe Biden one iota, Beijing has pledged to fire on any American forces that come to the defense of Taiwan, which also likely means that China is planning to attack the island democracy sometime in the near future.
The threat was issued via the Chinese government’s official Communist Party outlet, the Global Times, which stated that the People’s Liberation Army “will heavily attack U.S. troops who come to Taiwan’s rescue” should war break out between the two countries.
The latest threat to attack the United States during any standoff between China and Taiwan was issued Thursday in the Global Times, an official Chinese Communist Party mouthpiece that prints the regime’s propaganda.
China’s latest threat to escalate tensions with Taiwan comes on the heels of remarks by National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, who said the United States is prepared to counter an attempt by China to forcefully seize Taiwan and bring it back into the Communist country’s orbit. The long-simmering standoff comes as the Biden administration confronts Russian attempts to invade Ukraine, a situation that could also prompt U.S. intervention.
“It is credible that the [People’s Liberation Army] will heavily attack U.S. troops who come to Taiwan’s rescue,” the Global Times noted. “Such credibility is increasingly overwhelming the deterrence that U.S. troops may have.”
China’s ambition to bring Taiwan, a democracy, back under ChiCom leadership did not change during the Trump administration, but Beijing did not issue bellicose statements and threats during Donald Trump’s presidency, either, because President Xi Jinping knew that Trump would not be deterred by it and in fact, was liable to remind the Chinese of American military capabilities.
However, under the hapless Joe Biden, who reads teleprompter messages mindlessly (like “End of Message”) because his mind is shot, obviously, Beijing is no longer intimidated, as evidenced by the direct threat against American troops.
“If Washington supports the Taiwan authority’s path of seeking secession and encourages the Taiwan authority to rely on it, then reunification by force will definitely happen. The more the U.S. and the island of Taiwan collude, the sooner reunification by force will come,” the propaganda outlet noted.
In response to questions from reporters on Tuesday, Sullivan pointed out that the U.S. objective is to ensure that a takeover of Taiwan by force “never happens.”
The Global Times ‘editorial’ responded directly to Sullivan’s remarks.
“Mr. Sullivan, please be advised to sort out your mind carefully and think about what bargaining chips you do have in your hands to intimidate the Chinese mainland which is determined to achieve national reunification and has various strategic tools to resist blackmail,” the editorial said.
“You will find your hands empty. Therefore, don’t have a big mouth, Mr. Sullivan, otherwise you will only create more embarrassment for your country,” the editorial said.
To that end, China — as well as Russia — are said to be years ahead of the United States in the realm of hypersonic weapons, which is a huge advancement in the ballistic missile age.
NationalSecurity.news reported on the advancements:
If Russian President Vladimir Putin decides to send in his 100,000 or so troops massed on the border of Ukraine at any point in the near future following his video chat with our feeble, hapless ‘leader,’ Joe Biden earlier this week, there won’t be much the United States or even NATO can do about it.
Oh, and ditto for China, should Beijing decide to launch an attack on Taiwan to ‘reunify’ the island democracy with the mainland (never mind that the Chinese nationalists escaped there post-World War II to form their own country after losing a civil war to the Communists).
Both reportedly have either tested or deployed hypersonic missile systems that can evade our defenses and carry nuclear payloads.
So maybe that is what is driving China’s new confidence. That, and Biden’s incapacity.
