Taiwan Vows to 'Defend Itself' Amid U.S. Reversal

Newsweek: Taiwan Vows to 'Defend Itself' Amid U.S. Reversal, Here's How Much Stronger China Is  

Taiwan has said it would express the will to defend itself amid a quick U.S. reversal on an apparent promise to defend the self-ruling island and warnings from mainland China, which claims it as part of the People's Republic. 

President Joe Biden stirred controversy during a Thursday evening town hall when he twice appeared to confirm that he had a commitment to protect Taiwan in the event of an attack, one that would presumably come from China, where President Xi Jinping has vowed to take reintegrate the rival government by diplomacy, or force, if necessary.

China won't invade Taiwan before their Winter Olympics. The Olympics happen February 4-20.

Biden will of course send US athletes to this Chin propaganda fest. A reward for infecting the world with Wuhan Flu/Covid. With Chin-only spectators, no one else - under the obvious threat of "Greatly Offending the Chinese People!!!" if we cancel. So Biden will obey.

/it'll be just super.

After that it's anyone's guess.

It took 4-5 years of hard earned toil for D-day to happen...with hundreds of thousands of troops and every detail figured out, experience from previous raids dieppe, pacific...this is about 10 times worse...if they do try, they can do it...but it will be a bloodbath for mainland china...and these are not hard working low info country boys being sent to the slaughter, but one child policy princelings that have to support their families....

Almost always in agreement with RussinCal and @801pm nailed it.

Almost correct
China's one child policy has created a surplus of men who cannot find a woman. This is always bad for society, men who cannot have families.. entire books written about this and the likelihood for war.

Note this: China looks at certain ethnic minorities within China as second and third rate humans, and they have a surplus of exactly those in the millions.

As Russin said
Anyone's guess now

Especially as the US and China work together in the highest levels. You saw it with miley who on record confirmed he would have informed China, betraying his own nation. Nothing happened. Biden on record is so corrupt and in bed with China, nothing happened, in fact the media buried the story for them. You're so disensitized to corruption in your country.

But what's worse and most people here on this blog haven't woken up to this yet because you, like me before, cannot see evil.

Good people are blind to evil because they cannot people that evil is among them, among their side.

Look at pardew pharma, their opiates business, how much money these legal drug dealers made, who defended them, who let them go without penalty despite they killed the equivalent of a war in your country

Look at CNN, their lie about ivermectin alone too killed the equivalent of a war in your country. Biggest province in India, 300mn people, almost no more covid now after introducing ivermectin. They tell you it's horse dewormer, leftist pharmacists who have been trained like pavlovs dogs now tweet-for likes- that they denied another "right wing lunatic" a safe life saving drug that has decades of track record and is called a wonder drug.

For the love of God and your soul

Wake up

There was no specific build up for D Day in 1941. D-Day could have happened in 1943, but FDR (D) chose Operation Torch over D Day. Military commanders told FDR that, if he launched Op Torch, then D day would be delayed a year.

The Brits needed no help in North Afrika.

"Operation Torch (8 November 1942 – 16 November 1942) was an Allied invasion of French North Africa during the Second World War. "

"The Second Battle of El Alamein (23 October – 11 November 1942) was a battle of the Second World War that took place near the Egyptian railway halt of El Alamein."

With the manpower and material surpluses the British enjoyed in North Afrika, there was no way the Germans were going to win in Africa. especially after Operation Uranus (19–23 November 1942).

D-Day build up had to take 1 or 2 years due to the Atlantic Ocean. If the US and Britain had not by siphoning some forces to the Pacific, did it need 1 or 2 years?

China does not have to ship forces 2,000 miles to some distant island prior to an invasion. Using a simplified D Day rule of thumb is not the way to go.

Using a 3 to 1 correlation of forces also is not. There was not a 3 to 1 correlation of forces in the German favor in May 1940 during the Battle for France. It was more like 1 to 1

The Axis had 50,000 more troops.

3,350,000 troops to 3,300,000 troops

The Allies had more tanks and guns. the German had more aircraft (according to wiki).

If you study the Battle for France more than the average Beltways talking head, you would realize the CCP is already in Taiwan.
