China Could Attack Taiwan in the Next 17 Months or Before: House Armed Services Committee Member

Will it be Biden's Final Bungle? Or Ours?

It’s 17 Months before the end of Biden’s first term as President. The weakness he and his cronies have displayed could spell the end of Taiwan, and the beginning of the worst political disaster since the moronic pullout from Afghanistan. That according to a member of the House Armed Services Committee and other experts. China has been preparing to take Taiwan, the US has been dithering, sending most of its munitions to Ukraine. Are they waiting for American munitions to magically show up in the stockpiles?

“We’re three-and-a-half years behind in providing the Taiwanese military with the weapon systems that they’ve already paid for.  Military goods already paid in full simply haven’t been provided to them…We have problems in our defense industrial base providing the numbers of equipment that we need and that all of our allies have already paid for.” Rep. Keith Self (R-Texas) Washington Watch

“I have talked to at least one senior member in Congress that says he believes that Communist China may make this effort during the Biden administration. … That is something we need to at least plan for, be prepared for.” Lt Gen Jerry Boykin, Ret

17 months or before

We’ve written about the weakness of the Biden administration since 2021. It’s been a circus of mistakes and foolish moves that have ceded US strength. The giddy Treasury Secretary, the giggling Vice President, the confused President, a foolish Secretary of State, and a woke Secretary of Defense have all led to a huge drain of power and status. China has been watching. They increased their military spending, “723%” from $41.2B in 2000 to $298B in 2021, although they do not report all of it and where they stand today is not fully known. They also have added at least 60 nuclear missiles.

All while 18 of the US’ 49 attack submarines sit in drydock and unavailable. That’s 40% of our submarine fleet. Not to mention our military being concerned about diversity, equity, and inclusion instead of war fighting. 17 months or before to get your act together, America.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

In that timeline, China would initiate military hostilities before January 2025, a mere 17 months from now. Rather than talk tough, both Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and Secretary of State Antony Blinken sank to “groveling in front of the Communist Chinese,” said Self. Yellen bowed so much to her Chinese counterpart that she “looked like a bobble head,” added Perkins.

The consequences of a Chinese invasion of Taiwan, which Beijing regards as a renegade province, are anything but humorous for the U.S. ally and the U.S. Pacific Fleet. A simulation conducted in April showed China able to overcome full-scale U.S. defensive actions and land an 80,000-man fighting force on Taiwan. The Chinese People’s Liberation Army “just ran rings around us,” noted Gen. John Hyten, a former vice chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. “They knew exactly what we were going to do before we did it.” The Washington Stand

The US is a signatory to the 1979 Taiwan Relations Act, and Biden’s actions (or lack thereof) have left Taiwan at the mercy of Communist China. This situation could easily lead to the biggest Biden bungle of all: WWIII.
