US Arms Sales Designed Only To Sacrifice Taiwan In A War It Cannot Hope To Win

Illustrative Image

This is also a clear message to populations in America’s satellite states – “Be ready to die fighting when we decide to sacrifice you for ‘freedom and democracy’, ‘rules-based international order’ and ‘the greater good.'”

Written by Drago Bosnic, independent geopolitical and military analyst

As proxy conflicts around the world rage on, America is poised to continue proliferating further instability across the globe, particularly in the vicinity of near-peer adversaries, Russia and China, neither of which want escalation, as they need peace and stability to fulfill their development goals. Washington DC (and lately Brussels as well) is determined to prevent that and force the (Eur)Asian giants to bleed cash and resources on new weapons, which in turn helps drive demand from America’s massive Military-Industrial Complex.

In the last 30+ years, the imperialist thalassocracy has tried to redefine its role, going from a self-styled “sole superpower” and “global policeman” to an increasingly isolated great power in decline, losing wars to AK-wielding insurgents in sandals. A string of military failures forced America to rethink its policy of “strategic containment”. Unwilling (or unable) to directly engage even smaller regional powers, the US has relegated most of its interventionist policies to numerous client states, whose sole purpose is to harass US rivals, be it China, Russia, Iran, Syria, etc. America’s role is to provide weapons, logistics, critical information, particularly its extensive ISR (intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance) capabilities, etc.

The vassals are to do all the dirty work, including getting killed or maimed for the imperial metropole. To do this more effectively, they need weapons. One such client entity is Taiwan, China’s breakaway island in the increasingly contested Asia-Pacific region. In recent years, Taipei has been forced to play a sort of (geo)political zigzag game, where the US would promise to supply weapons, mostly outdated, despite the island’s requests for modern systems, and then either reduce the order or outright cancel it. While America is trying to portray this as an attempt to “reduce the risk of escalation”, the excuse can only be described as comically disingenuous. If the US really wanted to avoid escalation, it would’ve never promised any arms shipments in the first place. The more practical reason is America’s wish to enrich its Military-Industrial Complex while getting rid of rusty tanks, howitzers, jets, etc.

Taiwan expressed interest in the MH-60R “Seahawk”, an anti-submarine version of the “Blackhawk” helicopter. However, the US refused, claiming they are “too expensive” and “fine for peacetime operations, but would not survive an all-out assault from the mainland”. Instead, Taipei is being told to “learn from Ukraine and invest in smaller, mobile systems such as drone swarms, ‘Stinger’ and ‘Javelin’ missiles, which are less vulnerable to China’s advanced weapons”. Taipei officials regularly express frustration due to delays and cancelations of US weapons deliveries. M109A6 “Paladin” self-propelled howitzers and FIM-92 “Stinger” MANPADS orders are being held up “due to a crowded production line”, as the US is now trying to arm both the Kiev and Taipei regimes.

Reportedly, Washington DC is urging Taiwan to invest in “more cost-efficient capabilities” such as “command and control systems, ISR, air defenses, and naval sea mines”. America also suggested the M142 HIMARS MLRS for “a similar capability with a faster delivery schedule”. The US insists Taiwan needs “more asymmetrical capabilities”.

“These are not regular times. If you’re going to spend money, it should be on naval sea mines and anti-ship missiles. These are the kinds of things that we have indicated to industry and to Taiwan. President Tsai gets it,” an unnamed US official told Politico.

The US is telling Taiwan to “watch the war in Ukraine closely”, claiming “many civilians in Taiwan are expressing a greater desire to learn how they can play a role in defending their island and resisting Chinese forces, but it’s not yet clear how far the Taiwanese military will go to help prepare the civilian population.” Such statements clearly show America wants to galvanize civilians in vassal entities to wage wars against its rivals, regardless of the consequences, as Taiwan obviously cannot hope to win against China’s vastly superior forces.

Another strategic hurdle is the looming uncertainty of what the US is capable and willing to do to assist Taiwan in case of a conflict. Unlike Ukraine, which has an extensive land border with NATO, Taiwan is far away, making it incomparably more difficult to supply its forces or even provide ISR capabilities on a scale similar to Ukraine. Additionally, the US claims a Chinese naval blockade is also a possibility. Even if it had any forces in the vicinity in such a scenario, America wouldn’t be able to break through without starting a war with nuclear-armed China. It’s quite unclear how the US would explain to its population they should risk a world-ending conflict with China just so it could keep controlling a Chinese breakaway island 11,000 from America’s shores.

“We’re going to have a lot of challenges if China decides to blockade the island,” the US official said. “People have to start thinking hard… …The trickiest part may be figuring out how to help Taiwan prepare without leaving Beijing feeling as if it must react. We could provoke the attack that we’re seeking to deter,” he concluded.

Such schizophrenic statements clearly indicate that the US foreign policy is a runaway train which nobody in the imperialist thalassocracy’s establishment is trying to stop. On the contrary, it seems whoever is at the helm is speeding up. This is also a clear message to populations in America’s satellite states – “Be ready to die fighting when we decide to sacrifice you for ‘freedom and democracy’, ‘rules-based international order’ and ‘the greater good.'”

China’s purpose is to take the U.S. factories and jobs we send over there and to make plastic shit for Wal*Mart, not to fuck with Taiwan (where we sent our chip fabs because we couldn’t compete). Don’t make us SNAKES ISLAND Taiwan, Xi. We’re willing to sacrifice every last Taiwanese (except TMSC employees), all of Japan, all our carriers and the entire 7th Fleet to protect Taiwan’s freedom. Do you really think your Chinese two and a half million strong military would be any obstacle to the mighty U.S. military? [chuckles in Chinese]

PavewayIV the warmongering troll needs to crawl back into his mother’s basement so he can share more “special” time with his uncle Lester in the Gimp Cage.

I spoke with a retired nationalistic and realistic Taiwan Marine Captain about a year and half ago. We discussed at length the situation in regards to Mainland China and Taiwan. He told me that if a shooting war were to happen Taiwan would lose in about three hours and any interfering western colonial bases and navies would be BBQed sitting ducks in short order.

Mainland China and Taiwan DO NOT want war. The Taiwanese WILL NOT sacrifice themselves to buy a few more days of Petrodollar life. ONLY the failing desperately-needing-a-distraction numb nut puppet Yankistani leaders do.

I guess some willfully brainwashed Yankistani muppets who watched too many “Red Dawn” movies can’t handle the truth. I hope ya’ll like paying $12 for a dozen eggs in the near future not because of China, but because of the banker ponzi schemes blowing up.

The whole evil Anglo-Zionist aim is for Chinese to kill Chinese, just like the Arabs and Slavs now. If that fails then create a Sino-Indian war and kill billions. That is how the racist Anglos think.

Isn’t this “entirely” Ukraine!?… I’d add Syria to that list but the Russian Federation is still holding them at arms length because of their relationship with Tel Aviv/”Jerusalem”!…

Exactly. Ukr 2.0.

How is Bidet’s agenda any different between supplying Ukraine or Taiwan with weapons? The democrat mentality is either supply money or weapons to fix a problem and neither work historically or present day. The US would have kept their nose out of Ukraine’s business if it weren’t for US Elite money laundering within the Ukraine. The Bidet Regime wants to put training boots on the ground in Ukraine AND create a federal agency to track US weapon delivery and use by Ukrainian forces because they have determined or awakened to the fact some (a third to half) of the weapons delivered are winding up in Civilian, LPR, DPR or Russian hands (example: two French Caesar self-propelled guns valued at 14M euros were recently resold for $240,000 dollars). Want to buy ManPads, SwitchBlades, etc. that were never used and dropped once? DPR, LPR & Russia are very happy with the west (US, CA, UK & EU) for supplying weapons and ammunition to reduce their resupply requirements.

It is easy to see, that these socalled governments are not focused on peace, but on an agenda signed by most governments in this world… So Russia and China are now following an approved WW2 scenario.. Only to get this one world government including the “replacement” of the 4th tech. revolution..

But the Chinese are not Russians. The Chinese will completely liquidate the population of Taiwan. That is, until the last baby.

Are Taiwan politicians getting too big for their boots now they are wanting to become a US vassal? Ukraine politicians were given the same US/nato promises. Now look at them. Their country and options are getting smaller by the day. Is this what Taiwan politicians want for their country, built with Chinese money and tech?

Both Ukraine and Taiwan and its people are being sacrificed for the sake of the dollar, as this is what the orchestrated trouble is all about. So, good luck Taiwan, your going to need it.

If Blighty can hold Northern Ireland, i’m sure the Chinese admin have the right to hold Taiwan.

America isn’t the one pushing instability. China is the one building aircraft carriers and illegally taking territory from sovereign nations like the Philippines, but somehow defensive systems for Taiwan are destabilizing??? That’s an extremely one sided view.

Good to see that the narrative is changing to exposing the western MIC’s obvious money grab by promoting these proxy wars that they profit from massively. War = death + misery = MASSIVE PROFITS
