The Biden Agenda – Destroy the US and the World in 4 Years Are Less
Axios on Monday night warned that US allies are preparing for the possibility of war over Taiwan.
A war between the U.S. and China over Taiwan would be a nightmare scenario for America’s allies in the Pacific, but it’s becoming increasingly clear what roles they might play if one breaks out.
The big picture: French President Emmanuel Macron declared last month that Europe should not get “caught up in crises that are not ours,” such as the escalation over Taiwan sparked by U.S.-China rivalry. U.S. allies in the region don’t have that luxury.
- The U.S. has no formal commitment to defend Taiwan, but President Biden has repeatedly said that Washington would intervene.
- A Taiwan crisis could take several forms short of an all-out invasion — a blockade, cyber warfare, or attacks on offshore islands. In any contingency, U.S. allies in the region would play a critical role.
