Biden “Steps In It Again” With Muddled and Confused Taiwan Policy – Our “Blunderer In Chief”

On Tuesday, Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) strongly criticized President Joe Biden’s policy on Taiwan should China attack. The Arkansas lawmaker complained that Biden’s ”muddled and confused” policy was “the worst of all possible worlds.”

These statements came as a result of Biden saying that the U. S. would defend Taiwan should China invade, comments that were effectively walked back by the White House in short order. Cotton’s point is that we look weak and uncertain because we have disabled leadership. China knows that Biden is likely too weak to help Taiwan.

Senator Cotton explained

“The policy that Joe Biden seems to have stumbled on yesterday, or for that matter two other times in the past nine months, is the correct policy for the United States now,” Cotton explained. “China is our number one competitor. Taiwan is the most dangerous flashpoint in the world. For many years, we had so-called strategic ambiguity because the Chinese military is not capable of executing the invasion of Taiwan. That’s not the case anymore. So, the best way to deter a war over Taiwan before it happens is strategic clarity to make it absolutely clear that the United States will come to Taiwan’s aid.”

He added

“Unfortunately, what we’ve seen with President Biden now three times in nine months is not strategic ambiguity or clarity — it’s muddled and confused ambiguity. On three times, President Biden has seemed to change U.S. policy only to have anonymous White House staff immediately correct him. It is the worst of both worlds because it gives provocation without deterrence. You can see how its provoked Beijing yesterday in their intemperate response, but Beijing probably doesn’t think that Joe Biden is really willing to go defend Taiwan, given the fact that he allows his anonymous aides to rush out and change it. This is the worst of all possible worlds.”

At this point we could call Joe our “Blunderer in Chief”.  He is an embarrassment on the world stage.

To continuously be “corrected” by his White House staff, like a school boy who forgot his lines, Biden’s ineptness is out there for all the world to see. His presence as our leader is a mockery of the United States as a first world nation.

They’re likely asking who’s in charge anyway? Like the professor in the Wizard of Oz – “Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain”. Someone besides Joe Biden, is pulling those levers and strings! Someone not elected by voters.

The U.S. desperately needs a change of leadership. Joe Biden is watching, even helping America to slide into an abyss we will likely be forced to dig ourselves out of, for generations to come. America deserves better.
