Thursday’s announcement by the Biden White House was that it would cancel a long-planned test-firing of a Minuteman ICBM at Vandenburg AFB (CA) The test was disclosed many years ago. According to Wall Street Journal, this was done to stop the swelling of the hemorrhoids caused by President Xi of China.
John Kirby, a White House spokesperson, stated that Lloyd Austin, Defense Secretary, ordered an extended naval presence. Kirby stated that Mr. Austin ordered the delay in missile testing to prevent further escalating tensions with China. He did not respond to a reporter’s query about whether President Biden had ordered the delay.
Kirby stated that China is engaging in destabilizing military drills around Taiwan. The United States instead demonstrates responsible nuclear power behavior by reducing the risk of miscalculation.
Because inaction is always interpreted as being responsible and not scared sh**less.
My piece on the Chinese exercises around Taiwan today, including the first ever missiles fired over the island and the largest ever air incursions beyond the median line of the Taiwan strait. China very much changing the status quo around Taiwan. https://t.co/tS4YcKudmt

This is the second year in a row that Secretary of Defense Austin has canceled a Minuteman test. We didn’t want Vladimir Putin to lose his race to Kyiv. The last time we did this was in March.
Alabama’s Mike Rogers was the top-ranking member of the House Armed Services Committee.
As a futile concession to Vladimir Putin, President Biden canceled the long-standing Minuteman III ICBM testing. To placate Xi, President Biden has rescheduled a second ICBM testing. This is a result of China conducting live-fire exercises after the Speaker of Congress visited Taiwan. These appeasement attempts by weak-kneed pearl-clutching will only increase aggression from our enemies.
The Biden White House’s actions in face of adversaries’ challenges are nothing but an invitation to aggression. Add to this the supine policy to appease violence done to our Armed Forces, by the terminally woken half-wits (sorry for offending all the hardworking, tax-paying half-wits out here) and we may reach a point where a devastating war is inevitable. This is what Biden’s cronies want.
