“The president of the United States has once again committed the US military to direct hot war with China in the event of an attack on Taiwan, a commitment that was once again walked back by his White House handlers. In a recent 60 Minutes interview, Biden was asked point-blank by CBS News’[s] Scott Pelley if US forces would defend Taiwan from an attack by the mainland. ‘Yes, if in fact there was an unprecedented attack,’ Biden said. ‘After our interview a White House official told us US policy has not changed,’ Pelly narrates after the comment. ‘Officially, the U.S. will not say whether American forces would defend Taiwan. But the commander-in-chief had a view of his own.'” (09/19/22)
