In this April 2011 file photo, a Taiwan Air Force F-16 fighter lands on a section of highway during a military drill in Madou, Tainan city, south of Taiwan. The US is considering F-16 sales to Taiwan in order to send China a signal of US strength.
Because they are still a protectors and have never been released from administration under USJMC as a result of armistice in WWII.
Just guessing though....
The F-16 we sell, is typically the airframe. An airframe is only a small piece of the puzzle, other significant pieces are the engines, offensive/defensive electronics, ground radar and weaponry.
We don’t sell the best we have, however we say you have such-and-such mounting points, some quantity of power available, and they have to fill in the blanks.
No one matches a US F-16. No one.
Why is the US considering F-16 sales to Taiwan? Considering Obama’s devotion to the cause of global communism, that’s an interesting question with a complex (’smoke & mirrors’) answer for sure. His pal KGB Putin in Russia has been staging joint war games with the ChiComs since 2005 in preparation for a Taiwan invasion and to counter US military might. ie, their “New World Order”.
This is the second time I've heard this in the last couple days. I've heard very few details: Some guy bigwig named Bo is being discredited and may have stepped in it well enough to get himself purged. A blind dissident that has exposed the regime's forced abortions is holed up in the US consolate. The Chinese citizens are getting a good view of just how corrupt their government is.
I'm starting to get the feeling something big is brewing.
Because by selling advanced weapons to Taiwan, Taiwan will be able to defend itself and (even better) war over Taiwan will be avoided, WITHOUT direct military involvement by the US. The last thing the US wants now (or should want, anyway) is to get directly involved in a war with China. But the Taiwan Relations Act mandates it in case of a Chinese invasion. The solution: Sell Taiwan effective weaponry so it won’t happen.
teh us is in a conflict mode with china due to that blind dissident. by reviving the old “arm taiwan with f-16’s” canard, they’re setting up a bargaining chip
