Joe Biden assures that the United States will defend Taiwan in the event of a Chinese invasion

The American president made these statements at a joint press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.

"This is the commitment we made." Joe Biden warned, on Monday, May 23 from Tokyo on Monday, that the United States would militarily defend Taiwan if Beijing invaded the autonomous island.
The American president responded, at a common press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, to a question on a possible American military intervention against a Chinese attempt to seize this territory by force.

-------

"We agreed with the policy of a single China, we signed it (...) but the idea that [Taiwan] could be taken by force is simply not appropriate"

Fumio Kishida said that Japan and the United States were going to "monitor the recent activities of the Chinese navy, as well as the movements linked to the joint exercises of China and Russia". "We firmly oppose attempts to change the status quo by force at the Eastern China Sea and in the South China Sea," he added.

For anyone not versed in geopolitics: this is a colossal gaffe that guarantees a chinese reaction.
The US has had a policy of strategic ambiguity for decades, intending to defend taiwan but not saying it out loud so it wouldn't provoke or embarrass china

Joe biden just stepped on a fucking land mine, an easily avoided mess with China. And now its going to boil down to China's willingness to give him a pass with their understanding of what a feeble and inept old geezer he is
that's where we are as a country right now.

predictably, white house is already in damage control and trying to walk it back;

" There is no change in U.S. policy towards Taiwan, a White House official said on Monday, after President Joe Biden earlier signalled a willingness to use force to defend the island nation if it came under attack.
"As the President said, our policy has not changed," said the White House official, who declined to be named.
"He reiterated our One China Policy and our commitment to peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait. He also reiterated our commitment under the Taiwan Relations Act to provide Taiwan with the military means to defend itself."
and per their official statement, someone tried to add in a line to defuse it;
https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/statements-releases/2022/05/23/japan-u-s-joint-leaders-statement-strengthening-the-free-and-open-international-order/
" Prime Minister Kishida and President Biden stated that their basic positions on Taiwan remain unchanged, and reiterated the importance of peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait as an indispensable element in security and prosperity in the international community. "


The whole point of this meeting with Japan was to try to cajole China into rebuking Russia, and Joe Biden just gave China reason to side with Russia
