China Focus: The U.S. doesn’t want war over Taiwan, right?

In my latest editorial for China Focus, I examine the contradictory signals emanating from Washington about America’s intentions over Taiwan.

Chinese officials have stated on multiple occasions that they have zero interest in starting a conflict in East Asia or anywhere around the world. On the other hand, they also say they will not idly stand by and allow the U.S. to meddle in China’s internal affairs. American officials should remember that as they insist on more and more talks with their Chinese counterparts so that the only war between the two sides is one involving just words.
