Subject: RE: BS: MORE credit for Bush
Actually I am a little worried about the Taiwan statements. I hope his people can diffuse what he said and back us off from that position. Automatic involvement, such as he seems to be hinting at, was what got so many countries involved in WWI.

By keeping a little distance, while supporting Taiwan, we would be able to keep China guessing as to what we might or might not do if there was violence between the two countries. And we may not lose any of our soldiers and sailors in an action between those two. We have to keep the doors open for diplomacy.
