President Biden warned Beijing not to invade Taiwan and said he would intervene with the military if necessary. The simple yes appears to defy a longstanding policy of “strategic ambiguity” as U.S. policy doesn’t require military intervention. Taiwan expressed gratitude for the news; China suggests the U.S. should refrain from making wrong signals. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin says U.S. policy “has not changed.”
