    U.S. aims to turn Taiwan into Weapons Depot

    Very long article

    U.S. Aims to Turn Taiwan Into Giant Weapons Depot

    October 5, 2022

    ---WASHINGTON American officials are intensifying efforts to build a giant stockpile of weapons in Taiwan after studying recent naval and air force exercises by the Chinese military around the island, according to current and former officials.

    ---The exercises showed that China would probably blockade the island as a prelude to any attempted invasion, and Taiwan would have to hold out on its own until the United States or other nations intervened, if they decided to do that, the current and former officials say.

    ---And it is unclear how China might respond if the United States accelerates shipments of weapons to Taiwan, a democratic, self-governing island that Beijing claims is Chinese territory.

    The Chinese are learning that payola will only get you so far.
    I don't care if he is an establishment RINO, Kevin McCarthy is sitting on a hand grenade and Lauren Bobert is looking for a reason to pull the pin. I truly expect this Congress to really have some accomplishments.

    Given Uncle Scams penchant for slipping the shiv to people fool enough to trust him perhaps the Taiwanese would do well to think LONG AND HARD ​before they accept such a deal. It won't be the US OR ​China left a smoldering wasteland.

    It is by the goodness of God that in our country we have those three unspeakably precious things: freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and the prudence never to practice either of them. Mark ​Twain

    This is not a topic that I usually post about. The article is long and explains a lot. It does say; "Officials in the Biden administration are trying to gauge what moves would deter China without actually provoking greater military action."

    I's simple, the more Taiwan is armed the less likely the Chinese will move on them.

    It's pretty involved though. The Chinese have been following the Ukraine/Russia war in relationship to China's actions with Taiwan. They don't want to be humiliated. Then there is the question of the US getting weapons into Taiwan, etc, etc.

    Armed, trained, and integrated into a common command and control structure.
