“A U.S. Senate committee last week approved a bill to dramatically boost American military support for Taiwan, a move that prompted warnings from both China and anti-war voices in the United States that such a policy increases the likelihood of armed conflict.”

Analyst Comment: In the past two months the US has sent multiple delegations to Taiwan affirming them as an independent nation, issued public support for Taiwan, Biden has pledged the US military in the event of an invasion by China, are attempting to expand military aid, and new regulations restrict AI chip sales to China (Taiwan in the world’s leader in chip manufacturing). US leaders are clearly trying to escalate the Taiwan-China conflict: They have no interest in peace or de-escalation.
