In Just A Few Days, Biden Has Brought The U.S. Much Closer To A War With China

The warmongers are back in control in Washington, but this time the wild-eyed lunatics that Joe Biden has surrounded himself with won’t just be starting wars in the Middle East.  Relations with China are already taking a turn for the worse, and the Chinese are warning that actions that the Biden administration is taking could soon push us to the brink of military conflict.

I know that this may surprise many of my readers because a major Republican talking point has been that Joe Biden and his family have been way too friendly with the Chinese in the past.  Many had assumed that Biden would have a very cozy relationship with China now that he is in the White House, but it looks like the opposite is going to be true.  The Biden administration is taking a very aggressive posture, and the Chinese are not happy about that at all.

Shortly after Biden was inaugurated, the USS Theodore Roosevelt and its battle group entered the South China Sea.  It is being called a “Freedom of Navigation Operation”, but the Chinese are viewing this aircraft carrier battle group as a major provocation

CHINA has angrily accused the US of “flexing its muscles” in the South China Sea after new President Joe Biden sent an aircraft carrier group into the disputed waterway in a move which Beijing warned could trigger a disastrous war.

Meanwhile state-run Chinese media has claimed the new administration is seeing how far it could push China, both with regard to the South China Sea and Taiwan.

In addition, the U.S. State Department issued a very blunt statement on January 23rd which greatly alarmed the Chinese…

The United States notes with concern the pattern of ongoing PRC attempts to intimidate its neighbors, including Taiwan. We urge Beijing to cease its military, diplomatic, and economic pressure against Taiwan and instead engage in meaningful dialogue with Taiwan’s democratically elected representatives.

We will stand with friends and allies to advance our shared prosperity, security, and values in the Indo-Pacific region — and that includes deepening our ties with democratic Taiwan. The United States will continue to support a peaceful resolution of cross-strait issues, consistent with the wishes and best interests of the people on Taiwan. The United States maintains its longstanding commitments as outlined in the Three Communiqués, the Taiwan Relations Act, and the Six Assurances. We will continue to assist Taiwan in maintaining a sufficient self-defense capability. Our commitment to Taiwan is rock-solid and contributes to the maintenance of peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait and within the region.

China considers Taiwan to be Chinese territory, and any suggestion otherwise is considered to be extremely offensive.

So for the Biden administration to say that Taiwan is China’s “neighbor” is a really big deal in Beijing.

And I guarantee you that the phrase “deepening our ties with democratic Taiwan” really pissed off Xi Jinping and other top Chinese officials.

If all of that wasn’t enough, the Biden administration actually invited the de facto ambassador from Taiwan to the inauguration.  That is something that hadn’t been done since the 1970s.

As much as Trump liked to anger the Chinese, not even he went that far.

China has responded to these moves by sending military aircraft into Taiwanese airspace on a daily basis.  The following is from a news report that was posted on January 23rd

CHINA has breached Taiwan’s Air Defence Zone with eight bombers and four fighter jets in a blatant provocation against the autonomous island, sending a clear signal to new US President Joe Biden in the process.

CNN’s Aditya Raj Kaul tweeted: “Taiwan’s Defence Ministry says that 8 Chinese PLA Bombers and 4 Fighters have Breached Island’s Air Defence Zone. Airborne alert sorties had been tasked, radio warnings issued and air defense missile systems deployed to monitor the activity.”

And then on Saturday and Sunday, China sent more planes than ever toward Taiwan…

China sent 13 warplanes into Taiwan’s ADIZ on Saturday and 15 on Sunday. The first incursion included nuclear-capable bombers, fighter jets, and an anti-submarine aircraft. The second incursion featured more anti-sub planes, advanced fighters capable of using stealth technology, and a reconnaissance aircraft.

On both days, Taiwan scrambled fighter jets, activated its surface-to-air missile defenses, and broadcast radio warnings to the Chinese planes.

I don’t think that military action is imminent, but it is important to remember that the Chinese have been rehearsing an invasion of Taiwan for a very long time.

In addition to the saber-rattling by the Chinese military, China’s state-run Global Times published a very strongly worded editorial on Monday

If the tension across the Taiwan Straits is to be eased, we must return to its deteriorating starting point, which is the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) authorities in Taiwan refusing to recognize the 1992 Consensus and opposing the one-China principle. All tensions across the Taiwan Straits originate from the DPP authorities’ perverse act. And this is in contradiction with the US establishment’s general direction in controlling the situation in the Taiwan Straits, and is also incompatible with the three China-US joint communiqués. If the US places its China policy on the basis of the DPP authorities’ reckless moves, which obviously have a trend of Taiwan secessionism, then it will bear long-term and cumulative strategic risks.

The easing of the tension in the Taiwan Straits should start from the political point of view. It cannot reach a breakthrough through strategy. The interaction among the Chinese mainland, the US and the island of Taiwan has been broken in all directions and is difficult to repair. In the later period of the Trump administration, the situation across the Taiwan Straits actually reached the edge of collapse. If the Biden administration does not want the situation to get out of control or get itself seriously involved, they should sent out a clear political signal to distinguish themselves from the previous administration’s mischief, and restore the controllability of the Taiwan Straits on the basis of the one-China principle.

As far as the Chinese government is concerned, the status of Taiwan, the status of Hong Kong, and the status of the South China Sea are non-negotiable issues.

If the Biden administration continues to push the envelope on those issues, it will inevitably bring us closer and closer to a future military conflict with China.

Of course many would argue that we need to be tough on bullies such as China, and it is hard to argue with that reasoning.

But foreign policy takes finesse because if you push the other side too fast or too hard they could snap and do something irrational.

President Reagan understood this very well, and his patience was one of the reasons why we were able to win the Cold War.

Now a new Cold War is here, and the warmongers that Biden has put in charge of our foreign policy could end up starting a war with China that nobody wants.

    2. I despise China with a passion. They are the world’s biggest menace.

      • Sarcastic tone says:

        @Marcy, I love you ,but,China can’t be the world’s greatest menace.As everyone knows by now,the worlds,the planet’s,the universe’s biggest Menace is of course the most powerful supervirus of all time Covid 19. A virus that will go down in the annals of history as the virus to end all viruses.Comparing China itself to Covid is unfair to China.There’s no comparison there.China is but an insignificant bug and as we all know by now – Covid eats bugs for breakfast,lunch,dinner and as the occasional snack!!😂

        • TharSheBlows says:

          Beware of any Hand Sanitizers produced in MEXICO, they contain methanol that can cause blindness and other health problems. There are over 400 hand sanitizers imported into the US from Mexico. Throw it away or use it for fire starter in a grid down.
          Also Avoid all Gluten products in food that stays in the intestines that blocks vitamins to be absorbed in to your body to boost your immune system. Biggest products containing Gluton is Wheat. Reduced immune system opens you up to covid exposure.

    3. New error says:

      Could anyone have possibly done any worse in their first few days at their new job than cadaver Joe has done? Anyone at all? 🤔

      • TharSheBlows says:

        Since Jan 6th Trump approval rating up 6+ points, and with women 15+ points. The illegal Fraud Beijing Biden will be arrested and removed at any time by the US Military for treason. Stand by and stay Frosty. More false flags being set up in DC by the Biden team of criminals to take away more freedoms and demonize Patriots. Don’t get sucked into these scams.

        • New error says:

          @TharSheBlows, I agree with you.There has been one thought rolling around my head ever since prez Bidet “won” and it is: I wonder how many of these people who “allegedly” voted for Joe are now experiencing buyer’s regret? As the old saying goes “you get what you pay for” and as we all know by now “paid for” were the words that come to mind when thinking about this past election.Keep your posts coming.I may not always be able to respond,but, I always read your comments.

    4. Yeah says:

      We all probably would’ve been better off if prez Bidet had remained in his basement.😁

    5. couldn't resist says:

      Who knew the possibility of introduction of Chinese anal covid testing in the U.S. would spark an international incident?😂All Biden’s fault!

    6. Onward! says:

      It’s heartwarming to know that Joe Biden’s efforts towards healing and progress continue their forward momentum.😂

    7. Andrea.Iravani. says:

      Xi and former Chinese dictators have resorted to these bravado and intimidation tactics everytime someone new enters into office. These are showmanship, intimidation tactics, and attempts to bully America into compliance, precisely as Israel has done. China has been having disputes with almost every neighboring country for decades that have never been resolved, while China continues land grabs, power grabs, increases human rights abuses, and do not be deceived, it is China’s goal to totally overthrow the United States government, and totally destroy the entire United States economy and dollar. Every move that China makes with ANY country that China is in negotions of any type with demands total and absolute conformity to Chinese interests at the expense of the citizens of the nations that China is in negotions with, or has reached agreements with, and the demands that China places on those countries, including the United States are for those countries to sacrifice their own self interests for the benefit of China, which they call win win. Trump was already sending weapons systems to Taiwan and freedom of navigation operations have taken place for many years. What is different is Xi threatening to militarily attack any ship for any reason in waters that are not in any way internationally or legally recognized to be Chinese territory, which would be 12 nautical miles from China’s border, and they have chased fishermen from neighboring countries out of international waters, claiming rocks extremely far away from China to be Chinese land. Everyone knows this, even China. The Biden administration should be polite, but firm in reminding China that they have exercised rights that they do not have. As far as Trump and Biden arming Taiwan, I really do not know what to think of it, because Taiwan is tiny and could never defend itself against China, on the otherhand Taiwan is threatened by China. Also, autonomous zones were set up for Tibet and Xin Jiang and China demands total control, so how can that be considered autonomus? Those were international agreements, the Hans want to take over Xin Jiang, and have moved in in large numbers and have abused the Uigyur Muslims, using the same tactics that Israelis use on Palestinians. It is a Han land grab for Xin Jiang and it is totally racist. There are many extremely active Chinese propagandists on The Saker, Unz Review, Global Research, and Strategic Culture Foundation, and there are bound to be many more that I am not aware of. They attempt to intimidate Americans into compliance with Chinese policies in the disinterests of Americans and nations in the BRI. Sputnik News cricicizes China, but American and Scottish propagandists on Sputnik Radio act as though they are being paid by the CCP. I am not exagerating. There is an enormous gap in China policy between Sputnik Radio and Sputnk News. It is hard to believe that the Radio Show hosts are even reading the news on the Sputnik Website! I think that Putin has become disenchanted with China, not hostile, but distanced. The relations appeared to have deteriorated to a degree. That is not a bad thing. China wants to rule the world unilaterally. They have made that totally clear. They talk about multi-polar, but they act like uni-polar.

    8. Based on what’s been going on recently at my previous residence, it looks like I got out just in time!!😨

    9. this doesn’t surprise me in the least. I’m probably wrong here, just about every war in the last one hundred years has been during a democratic administration, so if we get into a shooting war with China it will be because of Biden or a democrat. And it won’t be good either. !5 , 20 yrs ago, I had a conversation with a co-worker. he made the statement that if we ever got into shooting war with china, we would win in 30 days or less and my answer was tht we would be history in 90 days or less. Because all china has to do is shutoff he consumer pipeline and we would be done.Why, 75 % of our consumer goods come from china and I found out recently that appox 65 to 75 % of our pharmaceuticals come from china. I’m probably all wet about this, but check it out yourself.

    10. Oh, and another thing that is on my mind , I was a military reservist for 30 yrs, my father and grandfather and uncles were all veterans, but I’ll do my damest to keep my two grandsons out of the military because of that democratic communist dictatorship that is in charge in D.C. now. I don’t want to lose them because of bunch of communist war hawk fat cats. Just my two cents.

      • Bill says:

        alfie –
        Same here, I have successfully discouraged at least a few from going into the military. I served several years many years ago, but now this country isn’t the country I grew up in. I would not serve or risk my life now, the country is no longer worth it. The white male is officially despised, why risk one’s life for those who want you dead anyway.
        No, I tell young people to live for themselves and their own, that they owe nothing to society or public service of any kind. I urge those who bother to read this comment to pass along the same sentiment.
        There is no way I want to be responsible for a young person’s life being thrown away for the corrupt whims of the State, or for the Mil. Ind. Comp., or so some major corporation can get access to another country’s natural resources, or to fight on the behalf of another country that uses America to do its dirty work. This is unpardonable.

      Back to the planes and helicopters hovering over my house again?! Psychos! Why in the hell are you doing this to me you sick fucking losers! Are you hunting aliens again like a bunch of worthless fucking retarded Losers?! Is this now part of inaugurational ceremonies that I will be subjected to every four years?! Who the fuck do you think you are?! You are a waste of tax payer money! I know for damn sure that you are not a commercial aircraft! Just a worthless government employee! I hope that your planes and helicopters crash and you die in them! Really! Why in the hell wouldn’t I?!

    13. Anonymous says:

      That’s silly, this is all for show so the war machine can continue to be fed in both sides..

    14. James says:

      There will be no war with China, Biden will do nothing as China brutally subdues Hong Kong and invades Taiwan.
      What Biden has brought us much closer to is war in the Middle East. Israel is going to bomb the hell out of Iran’s nuclear faculties, and this could end up a nuclear conflict depending on how far Iran is in developing their bomb. While Israel officially doesn’t have a nuke, it is known they actually have the nuclear bomb.

      • Bill says:

        James – I agree, there may some “harsh words” or some diplomatic action that actually won’t be anything more than eye wash. Basically, the present status quo will not really change between the US and China. The current Admin. wants back in the TPP anyway. I too look for China to make its move to finally bring the same territories fully into the fold. American resolve and various US sponsored consequences are probably the only factor that prevented them from doing that, but that is now dissipated away. Besides, the rest of the world doesn’t care. Maybe the Commonwealth may raise some objection, but it has no real power to exert.
        As for Iran, Israel has been chomping at the bit to crush Irani ability to exercise hegemony in the region. They clearly need US assistance, power, and legitimacy to make it happen. No doubt they will have their vast resources in the US working to get us involved and obligated neck deep militarily, politically, etc. The hesitancy to do so of this new Admin. is the one item where I agree with them. Hopefully, Israel will not do something extreme to try to force the US hand to be committed. The US must show it steadfastly will not support any kind of military action against Iran, but that differences can be worked out peacefully, even if both sides don’t like each other. But we’re talking about the Mid-East, who knows.

        • James says:

          I am not as sure as you of the US caving to Israel’s pressure, Obama hated Israel and Biden is carrying out Obama’s policies. I do believe Israel is fully aware of that and will act unilaterally, they really have no other choice if the wish to exist. If such a war was to happen it would kill many Muslims in the area, but I don’t think Iran will care.

    15. Between Three Centuries says:

      They only have power because they have billions of people. They are not afraid of nuclear war because they think that they will have more survivors than anyone else. A barrage of hundreds of neutron bombs raining down on them can change that opinion.

      A biographical summary of a very pececuliar individual on Unz named d dan.

      Commenter d dan says that he is not a CCP member, but out of
      807 comments on this website, all but 25 comments were not about China, or did not include China in the comment. If d dan is not a CCP member, why is he doing this? He insiuates that he is an American citizen in one comment on Obama stating “our president.” So, is 
      @d dan a bot, or an overpaid and totally unnecessary U.S. counterinell psyop whose position should be eliminated for being a complete waste of tax payer funds? @d dan has even followed me on to The Saker website to troll me. It is imposdible to believe that any U.S. citizen would have such a tunnel vision focus on China, particularly when all of the comments are rabidly pro-China, and not a single one of his comments is critical of China in any way at all, except for one inadvertant admission of China’s hypocrisy and double standards, revealed here:

      “…china is for the chinese and not for the anglo saxons…”

      On the contrary, many foreigners are working and grow rich in China. For example, US corporations alone have make trillions out of China in the past few decades.

      “Difference in resources of the parties considered does efface the example as valid. Could be a Snowden option?”

      I hope some rich guys could donate enough money to bribe security guards to get Assange to escape, a.k.a. Carlos Ghosn’s style, preferably paste a “f – – k you” note in the prison cell before he leave.

      Firstly, since manufacturing was outsourced to China, what makes this waterway, adjacent to China, so valuable to American shipping concerns. Shipping service is generally included with bulk orders.

      Secondly, patriotic Chinese get very offended when you say that some product comes from the wrong country. When Chinese business wants to evade taxes and customs, they name every different territory of the Far East as their port of origin. Never from China, though. They’ll recognize these other countries, to save a nickel.

      So many have seen the destruction of the US and with these fruit loops in power it won’t be long.

      The Bible seems to indicated that in the time of a female president New York city will be destroyed, Iran will be destroyed as Iraq was and then the US will be destroyed. A while later is the rapture with the coming of Apophis on Passover 2029 so stock up things are going to get rough!
