Taiwan: 30,000 US Troops There
« on: August 18, 2021, 07:03:06 AM »
What about this then?

Could the US hide so many troops from the Chinese? Even rotating these guys in and out of the country by commercial airlines would be pretty tough, let alone the materiel which would need rather different 'low key' logistics.

Who in their right mind would believe this drivel?  Does anybody actually think 30,000 servicemen could keep their mouths shut for any length of time?  Do you think somebody might question where 30,000 soldiers went?  This is absolute rubbish.

On 1 March 1979, the Military Assistance Advisory Group, Taiwan (MAAG,Taiwan) was dissolved, the last commander, Colonel Hadley N. Thompson, depart Taiwan on 26 April 1979.

The Command held its final flag retreat ceremony during the afternoon of 26 April 1979. Rear Admiral James B. Linder was the last USTDC commander to depart Taiwan on 28 April 1979, and the last U.S. soldier left Taiwan on 3 May 1979

C'mon Andrew. It's easy to see it's a fake tweet. First clue is China's propaganda media is involved in that tweet and they did a horrible job with their fake retweet of the Senator's. One can go to Sen John Corbyn's twitter page and see he didn't make the tweet they claim he made.

Look at the time of the tweet and retweet. China is ahead of America in time of day so if the Senator made the tweet on Aug 17th, China's quick retweet should be Aug 17 or 18th. Instead, they put their retweet date Aug 16th so if true, they made their retweet before the tweet existed.

Falling for propaganda leads to bad things. If the Chinese State media gets their citizens mad enough to support war, then war may happen.
