(Xinhua) — Amid doubts over the prospects of a harmonious China-U.S.relationship, the world’s two largest economies delivered strong messages of cooperation during U.S. Vice President Joe Biden’s visit to Beijing.

. . .Biden stated that the United States fully recognizes that issues related to Taiwan and Tibet are part of China’s core interests.

He said the U.S. will firmly adhere to the one-China policy and will not support “Taiwan independence.” He said the U.S. fully acknowledges that Tibet is an inalienable part of the People’s Republic of China.

Biden also pledged to boost cooperation with China to properly handle regional issues and global problems in order to promoteworld peace and stability.

Right on the heels of this doozie from the Job Destroyer in Chief...

(Reuters) — A U.S. sale of 66 new Lockheed Martin F-16 C/D fighter jets to Taiwan appears unlikely to go through, people familiar with the matter said on Monday, although they cautioned that no final decision has been reached.

Taiwan has repeatedly asked Washington to agree to sell it the advanced F-16 fighter jets, citing the need to counter the growing military strength of China, which views the island as a breakaway province.

China cut off ties with the U.S. military for most of last year to protest an American arms package for Taiwan. While other deals were possible, sources following the issue said they believed Washington would probably opt against the sale of new F-16s.

“If the Obama administration goes this way, as expected, then it’s a political decision,” said Rupert Hammond-Chambers, president of the U.S.-Taiwan Business Council, which supports the sale of new fighter jets to Taiwan.

A source familiar with the matter, who declined to be named, also said the deal appeared unlikely but said no decision had been made.

Defense News, citing an unnamed Taiwan defense official, reported on Sunday that the United States had formally refused Taiwan’s request for the Lockheed Martin jets, claims that were not confirmed in the United States.

I honestly feel that Nixon should have been hung as a traitor for violating our treaties with Taiwan.. I feel even stronger about Carter and his ILLEGAL unilateral annulment of the Sino-American Mutual Defense Treaty and every president who has pandered to and supported similar policies.

I'm dead serious... Biden is just another in a long line of pandering asshats that have NO REGARD for OFFICIAL US policies and treaties. The USA has had almost ZERO honor on the world stage since the 60s. It's sickening.
