U.S. NAVY ADMIRAL MAKES UNANNOUNCED VISIT TO TAIWAN, BREAKS PROTOCOLS
This could be a very serious provocation by the US towards China, as high level diplomats are supposed to travel through Beijing and THEN fly over to Taiwan. By not doing so, the US is essentially telling China you don’t control the airspace, we do. Hal Turner’s sources say that this WILL generate a military response from China. It remains to be seen what that is but I’m sure we won’t like it.
Prayed up and prepped up at all times! I reposted some of the Reuters article below and the short video I made as well.
TAIPEI/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A two-star Navy admiral overseeing U.S. military intelligence in the Asia-Pacific region has made an unannounced visit to Taiwan, two sources told Reuters on Sunday, in a high-level trip that could vex China.
The sources, who include a Taiwanese official familiar with the situation, said the official was Rear Admiral Michael Studeman. The sources spoke on condition of anonymity.
According to the Navy’s website, Studeman is director of the J2, which oversees intelligence, at the U.S. military’s Indo-Pacific Command.
The Pentagon declined comment, as did Taiwan’s Defence Ministry. Taiwan’s foreign ministry confirmed on Sunday that a U.S. official had arrived in Taiwan but declined to provide details, saying the trip had not been made public.
China, which claims democratically-run Taiwan as its own territory, reacted with fury when U.S. Health Secretary Alex Azar came to Taipei in August, followed by U.S. Undersecretary of State Keith Krach in September, sending fighter jets near the island each time.
The Trump administration has ramped up support for Taiwan, including with new arms sales, alarming China.
