During a press conference in Tokyo alongside Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida on Monday, US President Joe Biden promised a military response should China attempt to retake Taiwan by force.
"The US-China understanding on Taiwan includes the provisions in the three communiqués issued in 1972, 1979 and 1982," says Srikanth Kondapalli, a professor in Chinese studies at Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, India.
"Even though President Biden said that the US would defend Taiwan, the State Department had clarified later that the US-China understanding on the Taiwan issue remains intact," notes Kondapalli. "There is no change in the US position on this issue."
Poking the Dragon and the Bear
^3000US citizens have no real political representation.
We don't live in a democracy. And our freedom is disappearing fast.
I don't want to be ruled by hypocrites, whores, and war criminals.
What about you? Time to push back against the corporate oligarchy.
And its multitude of minions and lackeys.
