According to Fox News on Mar 9th, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said during an interview that with the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the world had witnessed the invasion of a free and sovereign nation by a reckless dictator who cared little for peace or the sovereignty of its neighbors, which sounded the alarms for democratic states.
Mr. Pompeo believes that the invasion of Ukraine necessitates clarifying American position on Taiwan’s sovereignty so that President Xi Jinping fully understood unambiguously US-Taiwan relationship. Since its very inception, CCP had sought to bring Taiwan under its control, and this ambition had grown stronger in recent years.
Finally, Pompeo emphasized that if CCP could take Taiwan by force, it would also likely gain command over the world’s market for advanced chip manufacturing. This control would be catastrophic for the U.S. and its allies. Likewise, ensuring that Taiwan’s economy remains free and out of the hands of CCP is crucial to future prosperity in America and throughout the world.
