Sign the Petition: Send U.S. Vice President Biden to the inauguration of Taiwan’s next president

Tsai Ing-wen 蔡英文; photo by David ReidJoseph A. Bosco, previously the China country desk officer in the office of the secretary of Defense from 2005-2006, recently wrote "Why the US Should Send Biden to Taiwan" stating two important goals:

  • First, sending an appropriate high-level American official to Taipei would signal U.S. commitment to the democratic security of Taiwan in the face of Beijing’s intensifying pressure.
  • Second, it would elevate Taiwan’s status as a regional security ally, while using a diplomatic/political tool to respond to China’s increasingly aggressive moves.

Not only do we support Taiwan's democracy and close relationship with the United States, with this act, the Obama administration can affirm America’s position by demonstrating that the longstanding policy of excessive U.S. restraint in the face of Chinese provocation is coming to an end. That can be done first by responding in a non-military, yet dramatic, manner that will demonstrate to Xi that his strong-arm tactics will have unforeseen consequences.

Sign the petition now to show your support of sending U.S. Vice President Biden to the inauguration of Taiwan's next president, Tsai Ing-wen.
