Tensions Rise As US Plans To Permanently Station American Troops On Taiwanese Soil

According to the Taiwanese Government in Taipei, there are plans to permanently station American troops in Taiwan. A huge move that will likely send tensions with China soaring…



aiwan has officially confirmed the presence of US troops stationed on its islands in the Taiwan Strait permanently, a development that could further escalate mounting tensions between the United States & China.

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) passed in 2023 facilitated the deployment of these troops to conduct training programs for Taiwanese frontline forces.

The move comes as China continues to assert its disputed claim over Taiwan, viewing it as a renegade province despite never having governed over it. The heightened military activities by China in and around the Taiwan Strait have prompted Taiwan to bolster its defense capabilities.

This newest development comes after Secretary of State Antony Blinken issued an ‘ironclad’ warning to China this week as tensions between the two nations rise. Closer to home, a new poll supposedly claims Biden and Trump are neck and neck in the race to win the White House in November and yesterday Trump warned EU countries that NATO ‘won’t be protected’ if he’s reelected unless they pay up for US defense in the face of new & further signs of global tensions, which range from Ukraine and Russia to the escalating problems in the Middle East and the growing issues in Cuba and Haiti, where displaced citizens could flood into Florida sparking a bold move from Governor DeSantis.

In response to queries about the presence of the US Army Green Special Forces, also known as the Green Berets, Taiwanese Defense Chief Chiu Kuo-cheng said:

“No matter the situation, there may be blind spots or shortcomings. So we need to communicate with our allies – whether it is a team, a group or a country. We can learn from each other to see what strengths we have. This is a fixed thing.”

Former Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen mentioned occasional training sessions with US instructors as far back as 2021, but Chiu’s recent statement is the first official confirmation of the long-term nature of these activities.

According to reports from Taiwan’s United Daily News (UDN), US Army Green Berets from the 1st Special Forces Group are now permanently stationed at bases of the 101st Amphibious Reconnaissance Battalion, a Taiwanese army special operations force, located in outlying island counties of Penghu and Kinmen. Notably, Kinmen lies just over a mile from Chinese mainland shores.

Additional reports suggest an American military presence in the northeast city of Taoyuan on Taiwan’s main island, with service members providing specialized training on drone equipment for Taiwan’s elite Airborne Special Service Company.

Both the US Army and Chinese Foreign Ministry have yet to comment on these new developments.

The permanent presence of US troops in Taiwan would mark a significant development in the region’s geopolitical landscape. The U.S. officially withdrew its military presence from Taiwan in 1979 following the normalization of U.S.-China relations.

However, under the 1979 Taiwan Relations Act, the US remains committed to providing Taiwan with defensive weaponry and ensuring its security against coercion or aggression.

While Taiwan has refrained from commenting on specific reports, it has reiterated that all foreign military exchanges will adhere to an annual plan.✪
