As Peter Lee of Asia Times writes, “There is a good reason for politicians to support United States arms sales to Taiwan. It’s good politics.” Except when you are a globalist and have a vested interest in making sure China isn’t challenged in its quest to take on the West.
Every time the US even thinks about upgrading Taiwan’s ability to defend itself against Chinese aggression, China has a fit. It threatens rash consequences and currently has the ability to make things difficult financially for both the US and Europe.
Even Taiwan has learned to Kow Tow to China in order to survive a few years longer. But you can only convince your people for so long that China is our friend. Eventually, they see the handwriting on the wall. As Jens Kastner reported in Asia Times Online on June 22, “President Ma Ying-jyeou has made his stated eagerness to purchase 66 F-16 fighters (and dispel concerns that he cares more about closer ties with the People’s Republic of China (PRC) than the security of Taiwan) a cornerstone of his campaign for re-election in January 2012.”
But the Taiwanese play both sides of the dragon just like the US, trying to buy more time. It’s a losing battle. China is going to strike someday and capture the entire far East, not just Taiwan. Those who convince themselves that trade will keep China in check are fooling themselves. Australia is selling China most of its natural resources, and in the process make her a tempting candidate for occupation in the next war. I think China will occupy New Zealand as well. All of you thinking about retreating down under should keep this in mind.
It is my theory that World War Three will be triggered by a North Korean attack on the South and quickly followed by a Chinese attack on Taiwan. The US will not be able to react to both in time. The globalists know this and are knowingly allowing the advantage to accrue to China and her puppet ally. Otherwise why continue to treat nuclear armed North Korea with kid gloves while preparing to attack Iran which is far less a threat? Why continue to deny arms to Taiwan unless you want her to remain vulnerable? Something doesn’t make sense, and that’s always a sign of a hidden agenda.
