A US Senator has issued a deeply concerning warning to the US officials in charge of sending funds to Ukraine, arguing that cutting the funds would be a “Death Penalty” for Taiwan as the Chinese would most likely invade the country if the US loses interest.
Senator Graham’s Grave Concerns
Senator Lindsey Graham strongly warned of the dire consequences of terminating aid to Ukraine, linking it to a potentially catastrophic outcome for Taiwan.
“Death Penalty” for Taiwan
He expressed worry regarding the ripple effects of such a decision, calling it a “Death Penalty” for China’s neighbors.
House’s Controversial Decision
The House of Representatives moved Ukraine’s aid to a separate bill, putting essential funding at risk depending on who is elected as the next Speaker after Kevin McCarthy was ousted earlier in the week.
Republicans Against Ukraine Funding
The Republican who spearheaded the ousting of McCarthy, Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, among many other Republicans, opposes significant funding to Ukraine, making the future uncertain for Ukraine’s aid.
Trump’s Involvement and Policy Focus
Senator Graham spoke about the delicate matter of seeking support for Ukraine from former President Donald Trump. Considering Trump’s previous policy inclinations, his involvement in this critical decision could be huge.
Graham’s Worries and Stark Analysis
Graham voiced apprehensions about the abrupt U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, calling it the “biggest mistake” the US has made and arguing that pulling out of Ukraine would be “ten times worse.”
Taiwan’s Terrifying Position
Graham also warned of Taiwan’s vulnerability, stressing that withdrawing support for Ukraine could have severe implications for the island nation and cause a domino effect on other countries as a result.
Anticipating Putin’s Reaction
Graham predicted heightened Russian aggression if the U.S. were to withdraw support for Ukraine, “You missed all of World War II if you don’t know how this movie ends,” he said.
China’s Psychological Tactics and Taiwan’s Resilience
The remarks echo concerns on Taiwanese social media, where the Chinese Communist Party has been flooding Taiwanese networks with propaganda and psychological warfare.
Dark Consequences for Taiwan
Graham finally pointed out what the likely outcome would be if Ukraine won the war with Russia, arguing that “China’s less likely to invade Taiwan, and Putin gets stopped.”
Taiwan’s Strong Resolve Friendship
Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs reiterated its commitment and friendship, “Taiwan has always been sincerely grateful to our friends in the U.S. Congress for their continued concern for peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait.”
Upholding Democracy and Peace
Taiwan insisted on its dedication to strengthening democracy across the world, “Taiwan will work together with all like-minded partners to strengthen the resilience of the global democratic community, jointly maintain regional peace and stability, and counter threats and expansion by authoritarian regimes.”
Taiwanese Social Media Sends Out This Strong Message
The phrase “Ukraine today, Taiwan tomorrow” has been a strong message from the Taiwanese people on social media regarding the detrimental domino effect that the US pulling out of Ukraine could have on the country.
Taiwan’s Solidarity With Ukraine
The Taiwanese defense ministry recognized the aggression that both Taiwan and Ukraine face, “Taiwan and Ukraine are both at the forefront of fighting authoritarian expansion,” they admitted.
A Promise of Strength
Taiwan ensured its public that they will always look towards strengthening their defense and protecting their people, “As a responsible democratic member of the Indo-Pacific region, Taiwan will continue to strengthen its self-defense capabilities and resolve.”
