Q: The U.S sells arms to Taiwan: Good or Bad?

China is crying about it and says it will hurt relations. I'm sure the U.S thought of this before they took the cash. It's not the first time but this time it's a billion dollar deal. Should China mind it's own or do they have a right to be upset and a reason to be worried?

Taiwan and China will eventually be reunified. This is inevitable. But Taiwan needs to maintain a comparable level of military strength so it can come to negotiations with a favorable position. If Taiwan is weak then China could just put a blockade on the island until they surrender.

I believe Machiavelli said it best. "For among other evils which being unarmed brings you, it causes you to be despised."

If Taiwan does decide to seek reunification, it'll be on the condition of partial autonomy similar to Macau and Hong Kong. So yes, good for Taiwan, embarrassing for China, and doesn't really mean anything for the US. All that money from the weapons sale will go to defense industries and not the US government.

I think it is less about a strategic alliance now and more about keeping the military Industrial complex happy. After all, they are the biggest arms dealer in the world...big business.
Lots of high paying jobs and very little outsourcing.

A:My friends who are managing schools still can't recruit from outside of China because of the borders being closed, as far as I know that doesn't look like it's going to change anytime soon. If you have a current existing residence permit etc you can re-enter the country, going through the usual quarantine process obviously but no new visas are being issued. I don't know about business visas but I suspect it wouldn't be much different. For up to date info you could probably contact the Chinese embassy in your country. -- Stiggs
