Bismarck would have already divested from Taiwan decades ago if he was in charge of US policy.
I say its a rock and hard place because unofficially speaking they are a US ideological ally. Granted, we ■■■■■■ them over back in the 1970s by supporting the UN seat change. But we probably should have divested right then and walked away.
We’ve tried to adhere so hard to the One China policy while still supporting Taiwan that we put ourselves into this uncomfortable corner. Considering American views on the PRC I don’t envy the eventual president who will have to make the decision to pull away from Taiwan completely. The populace will eat him or her alive.
