The "experts"? First, there's Heino Klinck, the former deputy assistant secretary of defense for East Asia during the Trump administration. So of course he's running his mouth about Biden.

Then there's this guy:

"I think in some ways it’s the opposite," Stone Fish, who focuses on issues involving U.S.-China national security, said, adding that China could interpret increased military involvement in the Russian-Ukrainian conflict as opportune timing. "They would calculate that the United States is unlikely to go to war with Russia over Ukraine and China over Taiwan at the same time. The more involved the United States gets in the Ukraine crisis from a military perspective, the more it incentivizes China to act now," he added.
I guess Fox felt it needed to give its audience some alternatives. You're authorized to choose between saying Biden is bad for not preventing the Russian invasion thus incentivizing China to take Taiwan, OR that Biden is bad for becoming too involved in Ukraine thus incentivizing China to take Taiwan while we're otherwise occupied.

And if that's too much for the old noggin', Fox hopes you can remember at least one of these: socialist communist fascist marxist commie sleepy senile china Joe Biden.

Aren't options nice? :rolleyes:

My guess is that the strategy for China is the same as the strategy for Russia: we need more ballot dropboxes to save Democracy.

Or I suppose you could just go with POTATO!

Wouldn't it all be easier and more heartfelt if we just blamed Trump for all this stuff? Wouldn't people respect us more as a nation? Why do all these FOX loyalists insist on badmouthing Biden when he has had NOTHING to do with all this stuff he gets blamed for. Joe is a good person and his kids, God rest their souls, have been among the fines that America has to offer. Only the Nazi, white nationalist, hate filled contemptuous human garbage that is everyone that failed to rail against Trump cast a shadow, small and insignificant as it is, on the peace and grace of Bidenism.

Biden needs to concentrate on this, because Asia is more significant than eastern Europe.

Asia may be more important, but the power elite in Washington only care about their cronyist ties built around paying lip-service to Europe.
It's rather telling that the Democrat Left have become the new McCarthyites. They should never complain about Joe McCarthy again, since they've exceeded him many times over.

My guess is that the strategy for China is the same as the strategy for Russia: we need more ballot dropboxes to save Democracy.

Exactly - that idiot Biden was busy poking Putin by calling him a "killer" (actually it was Democrat shill Stephanopoulos who simply inserted the words into Biden's dazed mouth, and he mumbled "umm, yup")
Trump, by contrast, was willing to talk to Putin, in order to keep relations functional.

Dems just want to hang onto power at home. Beating War Drums is just another tactic for them, while they tighten their grip on America.

You free market lover.

The right never does stick to its guns when something personally effects them. They can turn on a dime. Their so called principles go out the window.

Case in point: At one time the right was strictly anti-Russian aggression. Not they seem to favor Putin over their own president.

Things are heating up?
To be fair, this isn't the first time Chinese Air Force has probed Taiwan's air space. I suspect they are collecting intelligence on Taiwan's defense reaction in perpetration for possible military action.

Biden is so utterly compromised by Ukraine and China. Imagine if we had a functioning press.

Yeah, could be. I'd expect the US intelligence community to know, and to make that, most likely classified, information available to Biden and his admin, for the purposes of an appropriate response, or no response.

I can't imagine that Ukraine is very pleased with Biden right now, after all the money they spent on him, to get only tepid responses.

OK, but…


Did you read the article at all? Most of the oil we do import comes from Canada and only 7 percent came from Russia.

Gosh that's some real dependence on Russia! And to be clear that's not 7 percent of the oil we consume it's 7 percent of the oil we import.
