The fallout continues from the Biden-Harris regime’s colossal demonstration of weakness and critical lack of will in Afghanistan as the Chinese Communist government via their propaganda arm The Global Times has metaphorically strode up to the American people and jabbed their finger into our chest, challenging boldly that we are too weak willed to defend Taiwan. But that’s only the beginning.
“Editorial: From what happened in Afghanistan, those in Taiwan should perceive that once a war breaks out in the Straits, the island’s defense will collapse in hours and US military won’t come to help. As a result, the DPP will quickly surrender,” the Global Times tweeted.
Within the editorial itself they write: “Once a cross-Straits war breaks out while the mainland seized the island with forces, the US would have to have a much greater determination than it had for Afghanistan, Syria and Vietnam if it wants to interfere,” the Chinese outlet wrote.

This lines up with heightened rhetoric from China’s Chairman Xi Jinping who told the Communist nation July 1st during the 100th Anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party’s founding that “The Chinese people have never bullied, oppressed or enslaved the peoples of other countries,” Xi said, according to remarks translated by the Washington Post. “At the same time, the Chinese people will never allow any foreign forces to bully, oppress or enslave us. Anyone who dares try to do that will have their heads bashed bloody against a Great Wall of steel forged by over 1.4 billion Chinese people.” American Military News reported that Xi also said,
“All sons and daughters of China, including compatriots on both sides of the Taiwan Strait, must work together and move forward in solidarity, resolutely smashing any ‘Taiwan independence’ plots.”
Point blank: Under the Biden-Harris regime, the collapse of Afghanistan and restoration of Taliban rule has firmly established that The United States is NOT a credible deterrent under the rule of a Democrat-Socialist government. Obama couldn’t and wouldn’t deter Bashar Al-Assad in Syria, nor Vladimir Putin’s Russia when he annexed the Crimean Peninsula from Ukraine.
At Biden’s Weak Moment: Two Chinese Displays of Force
While the US Government in Washington, D.C. teeters on the edge of its own collapse, following the nadir of American international strength, Beijing has answered with two different displays of force: one diplomatic and one military. Chinese State Media Editor Hu-Xijin made a very, very prominent report that while the US-led a hasty and disorganized evacuation of our embassy in Kabul, joined by many European nations in withdrawing… at China’s embassy mere miles away, it was a Monday.
The Washington Free Beacon wrote “the “Chinese Embassy in Afghanistan is operating normally,” Chinese officials reported on Monday. “The principle of non-interference in domestic affairs enables China to maintain the confidence that it need not close its embassy in Kabul which still functions normally in this special, chaotic time.”

The second demonstration was of a military character when The Global Times published a propaganda piece designed to terrorize Taiwan. They said,
“The PLA Eastern Theater Command on Tuesday dispatched warships, anti-submarine warfare aircraft and fighter jets in surrounding maritime and aerial areas near the southwest and southeast of the island of Taiwan for military exercises including joint live-fire assaults, and also for testing the command troops’ integrated joint operation capabilities, Senior Colonel Shi Yi, spokesperson of the command, announced on the same day.”
The CCP continues to refer to “foreign interferences and the provocations by “Taiwan independence” forces” and promises that they are “capable of crushing any “Taiwan independence” secessionist activities and resolutely safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity”.
The fact of the matter is that while Joe Biden’s America shows the world this:
This morning, the President and Vice President held a video conference with the national security team to discuss the ongoing efforts to draw down our civilian footprint in Afghanistan. In addition, the President and Vice President were briefed on the earthquake in Haiti. pic.twitter.com/7BKSdJ8OKo

Our ignorance will not save us from the rapidly approaching danger of a world where Americans can no longer deter the privations of China, Russian, Tehran, and other opportunistic nations reeking in their halls of power of a vainglorious and revanchist stench that hungers for the hegemony and empires of old. While we are so absorbed in our own internal tumults and struggles brought upon us by the Socialist leftists masquerading in a Democrat’s clothes we are blind and deaf to a world that is becoming deadlier by the moment in the absence of our unified strength.
As Churchill once quoted from one of his favorite poems in an 1890 issue of Punch,
“Who is in charge of the clattering train?
The axles creak, and the couplings strain[…].
For the pace is hot, and the points are near,
And Sleep hath deadened the driver’s ear;
And signals flash through the night in vain.
Death is in charge of the clattering train!”
Churchill is remembered for making his famous speeches in Parliament that woke Britain from its self-induced, weak ‘pacifist dream’. Similarly, we must be roused to realize that ‘America’s hour of weakness is the world’s hour of danger.’
