US-China Summit In Alaska Will Take Up Explosive Taiwan Issue

Officials from Washington and Beijing are meeting in Alaska on Thursday. 

TOKYO — When President Joe Biden’s national security team prepares to meet their Chinese counterparts at a high-stakes summit in Alaska on Thursday, one of the most urgent issues they must tackle is Beijing’s growing threat to Taipei. 

Top U.S. military officials are warning with increasing urgency that China could in the next few years invade Taiwan, the island nation whose disputed political status has long been a fraught subject of U.S.-China relations. It’s a timeline they say has been accelerated by the Trump administration’s repeated provocation of Beijing, China’s rapid military build-up, and recent indications that Taiwan could unilaterally declare its independence from the mainland. 

Such an invasion would be an explosive event that could throw the whole region into chaos and potentially culminate in a shooting war between China and the United States, which according to the Taiwan Relations Act would consider a Chinese invasion a “grave concern” and is widely understood as a commitment to help Taiwan defend itself against Beijing.

1014am.. I don't know
What I do know is this:
1. The west has lost trillions to China over the years, I'm talking tens of trillions in trade, espionage and cyber theft, intellectual property theft, copy right and patent violations... plus accrued interest.. on top the devastation caused by China's"food market"virus (if anyone believes this lie, please shoot yourself)
2. The west and its culture has been under coordinated attack for years now..I would not be surprised if much of this is China's and not just Russia's doing. Burning churches, bombs, riots in the streets financed by foreign interests.. BLM funded by globalist companies with hopes to keep the CCP happy and get larger shares in the Chinese market.. the attack through Disney, CNN, MSNBC etc and NIKE... it's all about the money for them and they've sold you out long ago. Coca cola is now openly racist and tells their customers to be less white, while the left tells everyone to be less Male.. think that's a coincidence? While China spends big bucks on making their men more masculine? If you don't understand what you're up against, please for the live of God stop consume cola, stop buying Nike, stop buying apple, stop going to Disney, don't but Chinese products on Amazon , good luck with that lol

In short, you might think you're the top tog, but you've been losing and have been betrayed and sold out for more than 2 decades now.

And it's accelerating...

Largest navy now in China
Loss of super computer supremacy
Loss of air and AI supremacy is next

And they still sell you out.. while you literally might be at war they made more likely through the conflict they created because obviously the west will want its money back, will be upset about the thievery, the bullying, the loss if life, the damage by the Wuhan virus

Tens of trillions
And every day it gets more

If you want to prevent WW3 get rid of all the corrupt politicians, left and right
