At a CNN town hall event, a participant referred to recent reports that China had tested a hypersonic missile. He asked Mr Biden if he could "vow to protect Taiwan", and what he would do to keep up with China's military development.

Mr Biden responded: "Yes and yes." He added there was no need to "worry about whether they're going to be more powerful", because "China, Russia and the rest of the world knows we're the most powerful military in the history of the world".

He was then queried a second time by CNN anchor Anderson Cooper if the US would come to Taiwan's defence in the event of an attack by China. Mr Biden replied: "Yes, we have a commitment to do that."

Sound like bad news for the CCP fans on this site.

Regardless, there won't be any war over Taiwan lol. Neither country would want it - both have too much to lose. I think a lot of y'all here are clueless and out of touch.

As we should.
Appeasement doesn't work, will never work, and only guarantees the worst.

If China chooses war, that's solely on them. Our commitment to defense of the free world isn't the choice for war.

He'll just pull the troops out and leave China with like a few billion dollars in weapons leaving China to take over Taiwan

Biden is being cucked by GOP right now and doesn't have the gut to do s***. Once Taiwan is reunified, the only "action" the US can take is their internet troll whining and crying lmao...

We should potentially start a nuclear war with a country we economically depend on over a country our government doesn't even officially recognize in a region of the world that we have no historical connection to.

Oh gee i'm so confused as to how Americans were "tricked" into invading Iraq.

They all have war boners, and refuse to recognize that not every scenario is Germany Occupying the Sudetenland. What can you do?

Eventually we'll get the nuclear war they want, and then we won't have to worry about neo-cons anymore. Or anything really.

Yeah jesus christ that was a bad take, war with China is not happening, destroying the global economy & f***ing things up with our biggest trade partner stands to benefit no one. There's no reason to do it whatsoever

Shall we read the paragraph immediately following those quoted by the TC?

A White House spokesperson later appeared to walk back Mr Biden's comments, telling US media outlets that the US was "not announcing any change in our policy and there is no change in our policy".
