ASEAN has to stay away from China-US conflict. As superpowers we let them deal with their own problems as ASEAN has many problems that needs to be addressed locally.

Never heard of mind your own business. Not even CLOSE to home.
Always do as I say, not as I do.
One day that won't work.

Lazy China should have done SOMETHING in the 75 years since Formosa (Taiwan) shook off Japan's WW2 occupation. Time marches on. Taiwan has evolved into a dynamic democratic nation with its own ideas and future. Hands off. Maintain the status quo and don't wock the boat.

Dementia addled Joe Biden was installed by Obama & other Democrat royalty to ensure Bernie Sanders wasn't elected. The Bidenites declared they were going to get after social issues traumatising the nation, heal rifts & fix our crumbling infrastructure not go threatening world peace or making war across the globe. That alone shows the insincerity of these snake oil salesmen. This is the most incompetent administration ever.

China had a deal one China policy. I am with China on this one but. But I think China and Taiwan should talk and help each. Us is just provoking a fight.

Nick Pauletto August 6, 2022 - 12:39 AM

No justification for China's action, but REALLY, there was no justification to send the nasty old witch to Taiwan.

Toptop August 6, 2022 - 12:39 AM

Paper dragon’s final warning is a joke. All talk and no action.

I recommend China continue to lay low because it's the smart thing to do, if you make yourself not only an enemy of the US but also it's people you cannot win. Continue to be our friend and your country will grow and our investors will keep flocking to your shores and make your economy boom. But be our enemy and you simply will not survive.

US: when I slap your face and you want to slap back, that is a significant provocation

China needs to be held accountable for Germ warfare and Global Human Genocide. The world would like to blow up those bio labs.

Ralph Latham August 6, 2022 - 12:42 AM

As a distraction intended as for internal consumption, these responses undoubtedly calibrate the collosal scale of domestic pressures currently plaguing the the lofty ambitions of the Dear Leader; The bigger their woes the bigger the distraction. How severe the troubles that require tittering on the brink of World War 3? Mr Xi – you must be in very deep xit indeed.

Michael August 6, 2022 - 12:43 AM

I don't think the u s a understands that they cannot be the chinese and that russians at the same time the current situation that they united states military is in with all their left is propped again transgender rights and all the stuff that armies should not care about will cause to lose a war and we will all be coming as it is coming mark my words

Ted Aspane August 6, 2022 - 12:43 AM

China "sovereignty" over Taiwan? lol! China civil war in 1949 has not been settled. CCP never occupied/controlled Taiwan, that means there is no claim over Taiwan. CCP actually is a thuggish, bully nation for the world to see. I hope great majority of the countries will sever their trade relations with CCP China.

Chamber Pot August 6, 2022 - 12:43 AM

A reckless US administration. Unbelievable, and all because they think it will play well domestically.
