Appeasement is never the answer!
It did not help Europe in dealing with Germany before the start of WWII, and it will not help us now in dealing with China.
President Trump was FRIM with China. He never used violence or strong-arm tactics, but he was firm.
This is all we are asking for from the Biden administration: be firm on China. You do not have to drop anchor in the South Pacific to do this; just hold your ground and be firm with them.
Instead, they are issuing orders to him! Unbelievable!

The Western Journal reported:
While many American Democrats are happy to see President Joe Biden in office, their joy is seemingly overshadowed by that of the People’s Republic of China.
In his defeat of former President Donald Trump, Biden replaced a thorn in China’s side with an administration headed by an “old friend” of Chinese President Xi Jinping.
Now, it appears the Asian superpower is taking advantage of the White House’s changing attitudes by issuing a “red line” that it expects Biden not to cross.
Yang Jiechi, one of Xi’s top foreign policy officials and a member of the nation’s Communist Party, warned American leadership that controversial events in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Tibet and the Uighurs’ homeland of Xinjiang were all issues for China alone to manage.
“They constitute a red line that must not be crossed,” Yang said, according to the South China Morning Post.

Yang’s speech then went far beyond just a “red line” warning to America.
According to the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Yang warned U.S. leadership to “strictly abide by the one-China principle” on matters such as Taiwan.
Infamously used during the soft communist takeover of Hong Kong, the policy promised residents of the free city that they would maintain their culture and rights while benefiting from unfettered access to China’s massive infrastructure and economy.
The reality, it seems, is more along the lines of “one country, one policy.”
