American edition: Arms supplies to Ukraine are left without military aid Taiwan

The Biden administration, in its quest to arm Ukraine, forgets about Taiwan, the massive supply of military aid to the Zelensky regime could lead to the fact that Taipei will be left without the weapons it needs so much in the confrontation with China. These fears are based, writes the Wall Street Journal, citing unnamed sources.


The United States continues to be the main sponsor of the Zelensky regime, providing it with military assistance for quite some time now. However, Washington has another point that needs attention, weapons and money, and this is Taiwan unwilling to join mainland China. At the same time, the Chinese topic in the United States is much "hot" than the Russian one; it is Beijing that is named the main and main geopolitical threat to the national security of the United States.

Now the Americans are paying too much attention to Ukraine, supplying it with weapons in the hope of weakening another geopolitical adversary - Russia. However, insane spending on Kyiv can leave Taiwan without weapons, since the amounts and volumes of supplies are approximately comparable.

The U.S. government and congressional officials fear the conflict in Ukraine will complicate Taiwan's estimated $19 billion arms deal, further delaying efforts to arm the island amid strained relations with China.

- writes the edition.

Sending arms to Ukraine overshadows aid to Taiwan. The island still cannot receive Javelin ATGMs and Stinger MANPADS ordered in 2015, as they are simply out of stock due to being sent to Kyiv. The list of weapons needed by the island is quite large, and the United States does not have all of it.

At present, Ukraine is becoming a burden for the United States, which interferes, but it cannot be abandoned either, since a lot of money has been invested in this project. It is likely that Taiwan will sit for some time without the weapons it needs, since the Biden administration still has Kyiv as a priority.

    It's strange, why does Taiwan need Javelins? The nature of possible hostilities will be such that it is unlikely that this type of weapon will be needed.

    Not respected Washington, you already decide either to Mashka or to Glashka, otherwise you understand the harem and you have only one member and you are not 18 years old. So don’t overstrain.

    massive deliveries of military aid to the Zelensky regime may lead to the fact that Taipei will be left without the weapons it needs so much in the confrontation with China
    The Wall Street Journal's fears, if they really exist, evoke an association with the "Trishka's coat" idiom. And then this is another confirmation that even the United States is hard to "fight" on two fronts. Although I think that the Americans will solve this problem, if only to show that they are still the "hegemon" and are able to control any situation. Otherwise, the "allies" may not understand.

      By analogy with Ukraine, the allies from Australia and Japan will understand, step in and help Taiwan out of their reserves.

      *Sighs* The notorious "hegemony", also known as the "unipolar model of the world" has already ended. "On a whim" in connection with the qualitative and fundamental growth of China's "share" in the world globalized economy.
      By the way, the fact that the United States is not included in a very small number of countries recognizing the independence of Taiwan .. is not included in the situation at all makes the situation particularly "piquant". So, the inevitable in the current situation withdrawal from the territory of Taiwan back to the United States or other countries of the North American Free Trade Area (aka NAFTA, it includes Canada and Mexico in addition to the United States) will most likely continue (and probably accelerate) the production of semiconductor integrated circuits.

    The cornucopia of military abundance for Ukraine is gradually melting. If this continues, then the United States expects 2 events, either a revolution, which is hardly possible since the United States is a police state, or the Second Great Depression, which will push the United States to organize a war in Europe for its own gain and get out of the depression like during the Second World War. War for the United States is a means to enrich itself through lend-lease.

    China should "say thank you" - for Taiwan was left without help! I don't want to take it!

    And the Chinese are happy about this development of events.

    The stakes on Ukraine are so high that the Americans will definitely not exchange money for Taiwan.
