Erik Prince, former Navy SEAL and founder of Blackwater, predicts China’s attempt to take Taiwan in spring 2024 due to President Biden’s perceived weakness in foreign policy.

He argues that Biden’s approach leaves the door open for China’s actions.

Taiwan’s ruling Democratic Progressive Party seeks attention from the U.S., nominating an envoy to the U.S. as its vice president candidate.

The situation reflects concerns about Biden’s response and the potential for a significant global conflict.

“It seems as an American — it seems like we’re in a second version of the Carter administration, from ’77 through 1980,” former Navy SEAL Erik Prince said.

“The weather window, if they are going to do something by force in Taiwan, opens around May or June because during most of the months of the year, it’s too windy.”

“If they are going to take Taiwan by force I would predict that they are going to do something this spring,” he said.

Prince noted that he “would be surprised if they didn’t try something under the Biden administration because, for them … it has to feel like the door is wide open for them to do whatever it is they want to do.”

“The foreign policy setbacks that we’re experiencing are often and increasing in occurrence,” Prince added.

“Now, apparently, you can shoot at U.S. Navy warships hundreds of times and shoot at Americans in the Middle East without consequence,” he said.

“Now you have the Houthis that have even blocked one of the busiest waterways in the planet,” the Red Sea, “taking out more than 50 percent of the global container trade,” he added.

“Again, it’s a catastrophic loss of American credibility and deterrence.”

“Chinese President Xi Jinping bluntly told President Joe Biden during their recent summit in San Francisco that Beijing will reunify Taiwan with mainland China but that the timing has not yet been decided, according to three current and former U.S. officials,” NBC News wrote.

“Xi told Biden in a group meeting attended by a dozen American and Chinese officials that China’s preference is to take Taiwan peacefully, not by force, the officials said,” they added.
