China and the United States are at war. President Joe Biden is undermining the “One China” policy, which has been the foundation of U.S.-China relations since 1979, by cozying up to Taiwan and arming it to the teeth. South Korea and Japan are being enlisted by the Biden administration to encircle China. The military actions of the United States are escalating the confrontation in the South China Sea. The risk of nuclear war in the Asia-Pacific is increasing as a result of Biden’s escalating tensions with China. Additionally, Republican presidential hopefuls are stoking tensions with China.
China as the biggest and most significant threat to the country’s national security
Avril Haines, director of national intelligence for the United States, referred to China as the biggest and most significant threat to the country’s national security in March. According to Chinese President Xi Jinping, Western nations, led by the United States, have carried out an all-encompassing containment, encirclement, and suppression campaign against us.
According to American University history professor and director of the Nuclear Studies Institute Peter Kuznick, the Biden administration has intensified some of the most irrationally belligerent aspects of Trump administration policies, particularly in relation to Taiwan, which the United States had long recognized as a part of China.
In an article from Truthout, Taiwan produces more than 90% of the world’s most sophisticated microchips. Our smartphones, artificial intelligence systems, and missile guidance all rely on these processors. The Trump administration slapped high tariffs on Chinese goods in order to deny China access to the machinery and software needed to produce the sophisticated semiconductors.
In addition to imposing a ban on advanced semiconductors, Biden has maintained and significantly increased Trump’s coercive economic tactics. According to David Brooks’ article in The New York Times, official U.S. policy aims to make the nation of roughly a billion and a half people poorer.
PRC was acknowledged as the only legitimate government in China
The People’s Republic of China (PRC) government was acknowledged to be the only legitimate government of China by the United States in 1979. The PRC was acknowledged as the only legitimate government in China and as one of the five permanent members of the Security Council in UN General Assembly Resolution 2758.
In contrast, the United States appears hellbent on militarizing the Pacific in an effort to contain China, according to Kuznick, coauthor with Oliver Stone of the New York Times best-selling book and documentary film series The Untold History of the United States. If we’re lucky, this careless course of action will trigger a fresh Cold War. If we’re unlucky, a third world war that our species might not survive is in the cards.
Biden has emphasized time and time again that if China attacked Taiwan, the United States would defend it with military force. Taiwan has received high-tech weapons worth $619 million from the Biden administration.
In reaction to Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan in August 2022, which infuriated China, it launched huge war games all surrounding Taiwan.
The most prominent encounter between American and Taiwanese politicians on American territory since 1979 took place in April when Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen met with a bipartisan U.S. congressional delegation in Simi Valley, California. The foreign ministry promised to “take resolute and forceful measures” to safeguard its territorial integrity in response to the Chinese Embassy’s description of the encounter as a “serious mistake.”
The Taiwan dispute is at the very center of China’s core interests and the cornerstone of the political foundation of China-U.S., according to Xi, who made this clear to Biden during the G20 conference in Indonesia in November 2022. ties, as well as the first line that must never be crossed.
