Three pieces of news from America’s China policy: China is America’s enemy

As the world focuses on China ahead of the Winter Olympics in Beijing, the United States has received three pieces of bad news for its China policy, two of which concern the most sensitive issue of all, Taiwan.First, US Senator Marco Rubio and others have proposed to rename the Taiwan office in the US as the Taiwan Representative Office.On February 3, a bipartisan group of U.S. lawmakers proposed in the House and Senate a discussion on renaming Taiwan’s office in the United States as the “Taiwan Representative Office.”The current name of Taiwan’s office in the United States is the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office.Mr Rubio, who is very hostile to China, said: “The US must make it clear that despite all the efforts of the Chinese Communist Party to intimidate and coerce Taiwan, hostile forces have no right to lay claim to a ‘democratic state’.”Menendez said the bills were consistent with the Taiwan Relations Act and showed Washington’s support for Taiwan “to determine its own future.”As early as September, Mr Rubio was reported by the Financial Times that the Biden administration was considering allowing Taiwan to change the name of its mission in Washington.The US should stop official exchanges with Taiwan in any form and enhance substantive relations, including renaming Taiwan’s institutions in the US as “Taiwan Representative Office”, and stop sending wrong signals to the “Taiwan independence” secessionist forces.If America persists, it must pay a heavy price.Lithuania has been downgraded by China for allowing Taiwan to set up a “Taiwan representative office in Lithuania”, which has affected bilateral economic and trade relations.The example of Lithuania provides a cautionary tale and a model for how such incidents should be handled.Second, us lawmakers have proposed a law to close Loopholes in the PLA.A group of Republican U.S. senators, including Marco Rubio and Rick Scott, introduced a bill Thursday aimed at limiting interactions between U.S. troops and the People’s Liberation Army.The title of the bill is the Law on Closing loopholes in the PLA.Rubio’s office said in a statement that the ACT would eliminate section 1201 of the NATIONAL Defense Authorization Act for FISCAL year 2000, which allows the U.S. military to conduct joint humanitarian and disaster relief operations and exercises with the Chinese military.The law would ban all logistical operations and exercises and limit interactions between the US and THE PLA.Mr Rubio, who has been hostile to China, said: “Any co-operation gives the PEOPLE’s Liberation Army an opportunity to see how we operate.It’s very dangerous.””China is not a friend or partner of the United States, but an enemy of the United States, and therefore must be treated as such,” senator Scott said in a statement.As relations between China and the United States continue to deteriorate, there is little dialogue, let alone cooperation, between the two militaries.There is a strong anti-China force in the US Congress, which even obstructs some attempts by the White House to ease China-Us relations, resulting in greater estrangement and confrontation between the two countries.In short, in the context of China’s rise, there are structural contradictions in china-us relations. It is difficult to respond to China’s goodwill to improve relations with the US. China needs to be prepared for the worst.Third, US lawmakers have called for an end to the US policy of “strategic ambiguity” towards Taiwan and proposed a Law to arm Taiwan.In an article titled “Taiwan can’t Wait: What the U.S. Must Do to Prevent A Successful Chinese invasion” published in Foreign Affairs on February 1, U.S. Representative Gallagher said the U.S. strategic silence encouraged Beijing’s intention to take unilateral actions in the Taiwan Strait and called for an end to the U.S. government’s policy of strategic ambiguity.Gallagher proposals to strengthen military cooperation with Taiwan, including expanding to Taiwan’s military training, regularly send senior military leaders visit Taiwan, as well as assist in Taiwan for asymmetric warfare, such as anti-ship missiles, mobile air defense system, mine and drones, improve foreign amphibious attack difficulty, to signal deterrent to China.Gallagher says, including a former military commander indo-pacific Davidson, Taiwan, the so-called “defense minister” Qiu Guozheng, and think-tank academics oriana skylar mastro people predict China may six Taiwan in the next three to five years, but the us unprepared, for example, congress did not provide a is located in the forefront of the conflict in the Taiwan strait Guam need air defense and missile defense system,Bases throughout the Pacific are not stocked with precision-guided munitions, etc.He said the US was “on the path to losing the Taiwan War” but that it was not too late to change things.He proposed that the Pentagon set up a new operational planning structure for defending Taiwan that would include Australia and Japan, and that the US should re-establish the Us-Taiwan Joint Defence Command.He advocated strengthening The U.S. Pacific defense, combining the U.S. territories and islands under U.S. control in the region, including American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands, with Australia, Japan and other Allies as an important line of defense against China.It is worth mentioning that Gallagher introduced the House version of the Arm Taiwan Act on January 20, which allocates $3 billion a year from 2023 to 2027 for a new “Taiwan Security Assistance Initiative” to provide Taiwan with the necessary resources and weapons to defend against a possible attack by China.There are also a large number of pro-Taiwan lawmakers in the US Congress who are constantly calling for the US to give up its ambiguous strategy towards Taiwan, arm Taiwan and send troops to defend Taiwan in the event of a conflict across the Taiwan Strait.China is well aware that the United States is the biggest external obstacle to China’s reunification with Taiwan, and is fully prepared for military struggle, especially by implementing the strategy of “anti-access” and “regional denial” against external interference, the pillars of which are anti-ship ballistic missiles and nuclear submarines.
