Today, The Two Mikes interviewed former longtime conservative California Republican congressman Dana Rohrabacher.
We first spoke about the current saber-rattling Chinese threat toward Taiwan.
Dana, noted that the Chinese were no doubt serious about wanting to conquer Taiwan, but stressed that the Taiwanese military is a well trained force and ready to fight.
He also added that Taiwan’s navy — especially its submarine force — would exact a severe price from any Chinese naval force sent to stage an amphibious invasion of Taiwan.
The real question lies in whether or not Beijing still believes that the United States will meet its treaty obligations got to war with China to defeat an invasion of Taiwan.
The Biden administration’s recent, cowardly, and self-inflicted debacle in Afghanistan may be strengthening such doubts in the minds of strategists in both Beijing and Taipei.
Mr. Rohrabacher, when serving in Congress, led the battles to prevent the U.S. government from awarding China most-favored-nation (MFN) trade status and to block the U.S.-led effort to allow China to join the World Trade Organization (WTO) with the status of a “developing economy”.
Mr. Rohrabacher’s congressional career also saw him play prominent part in President Reagan’s two-term campaign to economically break the USSR.
We are going to ask Mr. Rohrabacher back to speak about Reagan’s strategy and discuss whether a similar strategy could be used against China once Biden is just a disgusting memory.
