47 - Biden, Taiwan, and Strategic Ambiguity


This episode examines President Biden's controversial comment that the US will “defend Taiwan.” Though Biden has departed from the traditional “strategic ambiguity” on Taiwan, he is not out of step with longstanding US military support of Taiwan. More disturbing is the intensifying US-China competition all over Asia, which holds the danger of a violent confrontation.
