With tensions rising in the Taiwan Strait, Former American Institute in Taiwan Chair Richard Bush says if the US decides to station troops on Taiwan, it could spell the end of diplomatic relations between the US and China.

The U.S. recently announced an arms sale package to Taiwan in the midst of rising cross-strait tension. Former American Institute in Taiwan Chair Richard Bush says it could spell the end of diplomatic relations between the U.S. and China if the U.S. were to station troops on Taiwan.

So, if we were now to decide to deploy troops to Taiwan, I suspect that Beijing would feel great pressure to suspend or cancel diplomatic relations with the United States.

According to Bush, if China were to attack Taiwan, Taiwan would have to hold down the fort for weeks before U.S. troops can arrive. Bush says U.S. military presence on Taiwan could weaken Taiwan's commitment to defend itself because Taiwan might think it no longer has to buy weapons or boost military reserves. In the face of growing PRC military threat and China using vaccines as a diplomatic chip, some ROC allies may decide to switch diplomatic allegiance to China.

We already anticipate that there will be a wave of Chinese using the vaccines as a weapon, as an instrument, to entice more countries to go, to sway them over to their side.

...of the way the CCP has handled COVID from the beginning, no matter how many masks they hand out now, I think that is a question and a doubt that is on the minds of many countries in the region and globally as well.

One U.S. State Department official says no one trusts PRC vaccines anyway. Alexander Yui, meanwhile, says while Taiwan lags behind other countries in vaccine development, vaccines could debut next year and Taiwan would be able to extend a helping hand to other countries if its vaccines turn out to be good. French Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs Jean-Yves Le Drian recently said Taiwan is a partner of France and a member of the global community, and he supports Taiwan's participation in international organizations.
