The Biden administration continues to make stupid decisions to disturb hard-sought peace with other world leaders.
“For decades, Taiwan has been able to assert its independence from China because of unequivocal — albeit nuanced — support from the United States. But the Biden administration managed to muddle the message in historic fashion by failing to embrace House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s trip to Taipei, emboldening an angry Beijing to act out militarily in the Taiwan Strait and rhetorically on the world stage,” wrote JustTheNews.
“Republicans, who mastered the last House Speaker’s trip to Taiwan a quarter century earlier on Newt Gingrich’s watch, are seizing on the debacle to create sharp contrast between the parties’ approaches to foreign policy,” JustTheNews reports.
The Republican National Committee recently adopted a resolution that blasts the president for creating “ambiguity and confusion that encourages China and can potentially lead to a military miscalculation” in the Pacific.
The RNC is demanding that Biden clean up his mess by “recognizing Taiwan’s right to exist.”
“The resolution’s sponsor, longtime RNC committeeman Solomon Yue, said the resolution put Taiwan on the same equal footing as Israel when it comes to American commitment to peace,” reports JustTheNews.
“I am elated that the RNC recognizes Taiwan’s right to exist as the U.S. government recognizes Israel’s right to exist during the time CCP China is rattling sabers,” Yue said.
“Taiwan went from the back burner of the Ukraine war to white hot global crisis when Pelosi announced she was visiting the island and Biden undercut the trip,” JustTheNews reports.
“The military thinks it’s not a good idea right now,” Biden said. Pelosi ignored Biden’s weak warning and went anyways.
“By openly arguing among ourselves about Pelosi’s travel, we made the trip a public spectacle, forcing Beijing to react,” said David R. Stilwell, former assistant secretary of state for the Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs.
“Had we done the trip quietly, as we usually do, it would have generated none of the brinkmanship we’re seeing now,” Stilwell added.
