China threatens retaliation over US-Taiwan arms sale
I predict something will happen or nothing will happen.

China on Thursday threatened to make a "legitimate and necessary" retaliation over the US sale of $1 billion worth of missiles to Taiwan as Beijing becomes increasingly strident over its claims to the self-ruled island.

The US State Department said on Wednesday it had approved the sale of 135 air-to-ground missiles to Taiwan in a move Taipei's defence ministry said would build its combat capabilities.

Democratic and self-ruled Taiwan lives under constant threat of invasion by authoritarian China, whose leaders view the island as part of their territory.

They have vowed to one day seize the island, by force if necessary.

if Taiwan gets conquered, China becomes the WORLD'S SUPER POWER

Why We Need Taiwan
Don't listen to the pundits. The United States cannot afford to abandon Taiwan.

A spate of articles, op-eds and comment pieces have appeared in the U.S. press and academic journals in recent months arguing that Taiwan is not important to America and/or isn’t worth fighting China over, that the United States cannot afford to spend more on its military (which it has to in order to protect Taiwan), and that Taiwan should be abandoned.

Some, a lot fewer, have come to Taiwan’s defense and argue otherwise.

There are numerous arguments to be made that Taiwan is an ally that should be kept. It is a democracy. It is sovereign. It is faithful to the United States, etc.

The critical case to be made, however, is—or at least should be—that Taiwan is strategically important to the United States.

I believe there are two good arguments to be made for Taiwan’s strategic importance: One comes from looking at the history of the United States. The other from geopolitics.

In December 1890, the United States Army won a battle against American Indians at Wounded Knee in South Dakota. This battle marked the end of the Indian Wars and meant that the United States could focus on external matters since it had finally consolidated its territory in the west.

Within ten years of Wounded Knee, the United States was on the way to becoming a world power. In 1898, the U.S. Navy won the Spanish American War. It acquired the Philippines and Guam as a result. The same year, the U.S. incorporated Hawaii and signed a tripartite agreement on Samoa.

In 1900, America made Wake Island its territory. Shortly after the United States started building the Panama Canal.

The expansion of the U.S. Navy was vital to all of this happening. And it continued. By the end of WWI, the U.S. Navy was the world’s largest. It built aircraft carriers that were the game-changing weapon in the Pacific during World War II, and in 1945, the U.S. had a fleet of 1,600 ships; no other nation was close to competing with America.

China’s reunification of Taiwan will be its Wounded Knee. It will no longer need to focus on territorial matters and will doubtless look to realize power ambitions further from its shores.

Its navy has already, for twenty years, been the benefactor of large budget increases (bigger than the air force or army), indicating China’s naval power (enhanced by the recent addition of an aircraft carrier) is ready to break out.

This relates to the second argument, the geopolitical one.

Looking at its geography, China is “contained” by a proximate chain of islands extending southward from Japan, through the Ryukyu’s, Taiwan, the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia and Australia.

To get into the Pacific Ocean, China’s naval vessels must go through one of various choke points between these islands. Its merchant marine (as well as its navy), in order to sail to the Middle East and Africa where China acquires most of its energy and natural resources, must go south through the Strait of Malacca, which is equally constraining.

China will invade Taiwan if Sleepy Joe drops out of the race. But this is preventable within the CCP. They just need to arrest Pooh Bear or force him to resign. The anti-pooh forces are building up quick because they are now in financial ruins after managing to get HK destroyed and breaking ties with US.

Fuck a bunch of Chicoms.
Kamala Harris is not a Natural Born Citizen. She's illegally running.

Used by the Founders...
Book I of The Law of Nations, Chapter XIX, § 212 (Joseph Chitty numbering) – “Citizens and natives”
reads: 'The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to
its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in
the country, of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by
the children of the citizens
, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all
their rights.' 1758 Emerich de Vattel

Oh' What the Hell, do I look like I want to die in some nursing home one day...
America must have 4 new Constitutional Amendments...
1. Drug Tests and Mental Evaluations on all politicians and judges randomly five times per year.
2. Term Limits for Federal politicians and judges.
3. Mental and health standards for Supreme Court Justices and retirement age set.
4. A 'Star Chamber' of elected Natural Born Citizens (no attorney's) to ivestigate, try, and prosecute the politicians and government employee's as they see fit.

Mandatory death penalty by public hanging is the merciful sentence for pedos and their associates.

Democrats are a WMD, literally.

Re: China threatens retaliation over US-Taiwan arms sale
US needs to build a huge military base on Taiwan.

Then deploy land based Nukes.

It is Taiwan prerogative to what it wants.

A mutual defense pact US + Taiwan benefits both countries.

It gives Taiwan full protection from United States.

And gives United States an important geo-strategic asset to deploy tens of thousands of Troops to combat Chinese aggression, and promote peace and stability in the region.

China intentionally spread COVID-19 throughout the world - a clear biological attack. China is clashing with nearly all of its neighbors, and threatening to expand in all directions. Chinese shills infest every forum and aggressively push leftism and an anti-white agenda.



The time has come to stop giving a shit what China wants. In fact, if China wants something, it's usually best to do the exact opposite.

Death to China! Arm Taiwan with nuclear weapons now!

I second this. China's invasion of Tibet was "illegal". China laying claim to an entire international body of water that is shared by numerous other nations is "illegal". China does "illegal" things all the time. Sometimes, fire needs to be fought with fire.

An invasion of Taiwan would be "illegal", so why should we care one bit if aiding Taiwan would also be "illegal"? If anybody calls us out on it, we'll just need to point out numerous Chinese infringements and ask them why they hold double standards that would place us at fault and not the evil dystopia that is China.

The USA will do nothing either way other than sales.


The United States and Taiwan enjoy a robust unofficial relationship.

In the Joint Communique, the United States recognized the Government of the Peoples Republic of China as the sole legal government of China, acknowledging the Chinese position that there is but one China and Taiwan is part of China.

The United States does not support Taiwan independence.
