    Default President Joe Biden said Monday that the United States would intervene militarily if

    Tokyo (CNN)President Joe Biden said Monday that the United States would intervene militarily if China attempts to take Taiwan by force, a warning that appeared to deviate from the deliberate ambiguity traditionally held by Washington.
    The White House quickly downplayed the comments, saying they don't reflect a change in US policy. It's the third time in recent months -- including during a CNN town hall in October -- that Biden has said the US would protect Taiwan from a Chinese attack, only to have the White House walk back those remarks.
    During a joint news conference with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida in Tokyo, Biden was asked if the US would be willing to go further to help Taiwan in the event of an invasion than it did with Ukraine.

    "You didn't want to get involved in the Ukraine conflict militarily for obvious reasons. Are you willing to get involved militarily to defend Taiwan if it comes to that?" a reporter asked.

    "Yes," Biden replied. "That's the commitment we made."

    "We agree with the One China policy. We signed on to it, and all the attendant agreements made from there, but the idea that it can be taken by force, just taken by force, is (just not) appropriate," he said.
    Under the "One China" policy, the US acknowledges China's position that Taiwan is part of China, but has never officially recognized Beijing's claim to the self-governing island of 23 million. The US provides Taiwan defensive weapons, but has remained intentionally ambiguous on whether it would intervene militarily in the event of a Chinese attack.

    What do they do? Flip a coin to decide between Biden's Taiwan policy and the White House's Taiwan policy?

    The exactly same thing in Feb 2021 and Jen Psaki aka Peppermint Patty had to walk it back. Joe is clearly in dementia.

    There can be no doubt, China has been forewarned. As it is, I am sure china has second thoughts about ever attacking Taiwan after the massive response to Russia aggression.
