Sanders says he would intervene in Taiwan if elected president

Bernie Sanders said in an interview that he would be willing to use military force if he were elected president. The Vermont Senator said he would consider military action if there were ’threats against the American people’ or ’threats against our allies’. On a question if China invades Taiwan, Sanders said, he would not allow ’invasions to take place, absolutely.’

The guy won't even "fight" to hold on to a microphone at his own rallies. How's that going to work when he has to send people into harm's way?

How is he planning on doing that after he defunds the military as he has claimed he would do to help pay for education and m4a?

Funny thing is, in Europe mainly Germans want him to be the US president.

If you’re going to be president don’t you have to be willing to?

I'm more worried about his willingness to use military force inside our borders.

I like bernie well enough but having a heart attack over 75 years old is a YUGE deal, statistically folks that age die within ~4 years after a heart attack.

Good, wanting to stop regime change wars is good, but we do have to be willing to use force on some level.

I don't believe that at all. The most I could believe is that he'd be too spineless to stand up to generals, etc. to stop current military action.

The basic meaning behind this statement is “I’m willing to deploy the military when contractually obligated”...we’re technically obligated to defend Taiwan against China should it invade, and per nato were obligated to assist member countries. This statement isn’t controversial in any stretch of the imagination, it’s the whitebread, room temp water, and missionary of political statements regarding foreign policy.
