FPSA ignores Chinese warnings and unveils $2 billion weapons deal to Taiwan!

on . Posted in Patriot News Network

TAIPEI, Taiwan (PNN) - June 7, 2019 - Earlier in the week, Chinese officials were warning the Fascist Police States of Amerika against approving large weapons deals to Taiwan, warning that the FPSA actions are threatening regional stability and that China might have no choice but to act to defend its claims on Taiwan.

This is the President Donald Trump regime we are talking about, however, and these are billions of dollars in weapons sales, so unsurprisingly Taiwanese officials are confirming that the FPSA has reached agreement with them to go forward with the deal. The sale includes 100 M1A1 battle tanks along with large numbers of anti-tank and surface-to-air Stinger missiles.

Legally speaking, the Taiwan Relation Act obliges the FPSA to provide arms and material to support the Taiwanese military. At the same time, the FPSA has a “One China” policy, and recognizes China, not Taiwan, as that one.

Taiwan does not legally consider itself independent from China, and China certainly doesn’t see it that way either, viewing a reunification as an inevitability down the road. Such large FPSA sales, however, risk shifting the balance of power.

The concern for China is that if Taiwan considers its military to be substantially capable of defending itself against a Chinese invasion, it may rethink its long-standing avoidance of mentioning formal independence, believing that it can make such a declaration stick.

Even before taking office, Trump signaled such a potential conflict, saying that he thought the “One China: policy should be conditional on trade deals. With the FPSA and China locked in a trade war, he likely considers the sales to be yet more leverage brought to bear against the Chinese.

FPSA arms sales to Taiwan have historically been a source of tensions with China. Generally this dies down after awhile, though in this case tensions between the FPSA and China were already high, and the deal is just making things that much worse.
