[Compiled by Yang Fuyi/Comprehensive Report] After U.S. President Biden once again promised to send troops to defend Taiwan, U.S. Air Force Secretary Frank Kendall also issued a stern warning to China on the 19th, "Once China invades Taiwan, it will be a monstrous crime. Big mistake", "I believe that the people of Taiwan will fight back, and I also believe that we (the US military) will assist them in some form."

If China uses force, the US military will help defend Taiwan

Defense One, a U.S. military news website, reported that Kendall made it clear at a seminar of the Air and Space Forces Association that the U.S. military will help defend Taiwan in the event of a Chinese military aggression.

Kendall said that the Chinese leadership should take the shattering of Russia's botched attempt to annex Ukraine as a lesson to understand why aggression against Taiwan is not easy and that there are serious consequences, while Russia has miscalculated three points: the economic consequences of comprehensive sanctions, the military not being like itself. Claims are as powerful, and battles are less short-lived than imagined.
