    Although U.S. navy and air force have been deployed around Taiwan, President Biden can not order these military power to counter any attack from China, unless Congress pass this law to authorize President Biden to use the military forces on Chinese invasion navy and fighter jets’ and missiles.
    The act is critical to deter China.

    China is not a friendly, trustfully country and also very aggressive, very un-democratic leaders
    aiming to takeover Taiwan as China Territory. This is not acceptable to any countries in the world.
    Taiwan, US, UK, all peace love population should stand up to resist vigorously to China attempt.

    Stand with Taiwan, say no to tyranny!
