And now we know why they pulled all their troops back, lol. They couldn't even protect their own Capitol building, Taiwan would do well not to rely on united states of dumbarses. F u JoeBiden As they should, as its in their deference agreement with Taiwan. Just after Cuba signed on to China's BRI, Biden blows hot air. Meanwhile the U.S. had another hypersonic test failure.

The U.S. seems to have trouble understanding its current status- that of a bankrupted war addict of no consequence. And he’ll be expecting us to pitch in no doubt. Our kids aren’t old enough yet, they haven’t heard or been brainwashed with the alternative truth to our Australian history. Can he please wait at least 15 years…..might have to check with our Minister for Education first…

I’m certain the Taiwanese people would prefer to live in a democracy than under the Chinese communist party. CCP will bully and intimidate Taiwan flying their fighter jets over Taiwan airspace again. I don’t trust the CCP Of course they will. There's money to be made. Ask them if they come to Taiwan's defense in terms of Covid-19 vaccines they say No No No. All they care is money for the few arms dealers in America. That's why they are in every single war and stir up more wars in the future.

BidenInsultBot The whole world would suffer if Taiwan becomes a battlefield . They make more than half the world's computer chips. Our modern society would collapse without them. auspol

With what; harsh language? Yes, well, he also said he'd cancel student debt, and here we are... Thank you The beauty of history is not that it prevents further conflicts, simply predicts them 😎 That’s good. The weird guy before him wouldn’t even know what or where Taiwan is. As was the case with Hong Kong.

Love this for us 🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺💁🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️🥵🤬 The PLA's combat plans for attacking Taiwan are all based on the premise that the United States and Japan will send troops to intervene. Of course, maybe Australia's participation needs to be added now? If he could remember where it is. Oh dear : not another bloody war

My little black dragons will be back Monday circling around Taiwan.

Biden Commander in chief Afghanistan 🇦🇫 Taiwan 🇹🇼 America 🇺🇸💵💵💵💵 They probably would but they won't win that I am sure of . Of course they would ! Military-industrial machine losing money hand over fist! Now just who was that idiot who suggested pulling troops out of the Middle East, Afghanistan & every other place that has oil that we want! (sarc, in case nobody gets it!)

Outstanding. Strongly worded rebuff from the PRC in 3..2..1.. Classic … Good V’s Satin 🇨🇳 What a cringe worthy nation the U.S has become. Strategically prehistoric. They're far too threatening to the stability of the globe and show no signs of changing their war mongering approach to global domination..

Like you would come to Afghan's defence from Taliban? Could you just leave other countries alone and focus on ur own business?

Sexual assault complaints in Australian Defence Force soar to eight-year highSexual assault complaints made in the Australian Defence Force increased to 187 cases in 2020-21, with the majority of concerns raised over incidents of aggravated misconduct. Another fault of Dutton. Dutton should resign! Highly alarming but reflective of an unethical leadership culture and systemic failure in management . Put this together with the defence ombudsman’s report - which had 500 reports of unresolved sexual or physical abuse in defence reported last year alone and 2000 in recent years Do we think there is a correlation in veteran and member suicide rates -1200- and sexual or physical abuse levels in the adf ? 7 years ago the abuse taskforce reported “ a systemic culture of abuse “ - nothings changed
