Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Biden arrives and voices a military threat to one China policy ... or did nothing change according to the home crowd at the White House, State and Pentagon ... similar to the Ukrainian frontline.

Chip production and electronic manufacturing should return to the US ... MAGA.

THE FUTURE OF US POLICY TOWARD CHINA Recommendations for the Biden administration | Brookings Institution - Nov. 2020 |

  • "Evolving the US base structure in the Indo-Pacific"
  • "Competing with China in Southeast Asia: The economic imperative"

Views, opinions and strategic options ... Biden takes the hard line and confrontation. The war hawk he has been since half a century from the Cold War era.

As America's policy choices narrow to two extremes, a new proposal for a middle path | Lowy Institute - May 20, 2021 |

There is a growing bipartisan consensus in Washington on a tighter embrace of Taiwan, which may soon become a stronger implied US commitment to go to war in the event of a Chinese invasion.

Taiwan matters to US security and the regional order, and the United States should continue to make clear that aggression is unacceptable. But those advocating a stronger US security commitment exaggerate the strategic consequences of a successful Chinese invasion. The stakes are not so high as to warrant an unqualified US pledge to go to war. American decision-makers, like their forebears confronting the seeming threat of communism in Indochina, may be trapping themselves.

The old man has little time left, he wants to make the most of it ... life to the fullest. 😡🔥

Too bad for Austin ... the boss sits in the White House and not the Pentagon ... following orders.

Translation:
The US is "playing with fire", China warns after Biden's promise to defend Taiwan.

Joe Biden's remarks on Monday were his most forceful to date on the Taiwan issue, and they came against a backdrop of rising tensions over China's growing economic and military might #JoeBiden #China #Taiwan For more details see ...
