By historical context, cutting the diplomatic relations with The Republic of China in 1979 set in motion the consequences we currently face, we gave the CCP the monetary needs to amass a larger armed forces with the perception of using the Chinese as a balancing force to the soviets was a no good measure to begin with. It set forth the exclusive trade rights the CCP adorned during Dao Dapong . Let us not ignore the fact that the CCP practices illicit organ harvesting , the utter suppression of Tibet ,and the worry some practice of using the DPRK as a loaded gun against US Asia policy. Not to even mention the numerous stories published by war is boring with the subject matter of defense intellectual property being stolen ,albeit a spy game practiced by the imperial Japanese and many other nations on the footpath to war. We shouldn’t ignore the history with the Republic of China, yes it is a risk, but it also could be our rock of Gibraltar.
