简评:

随着疫情在全世界的扩散、香港国安法的实施、一带一路的扩张政策以及国际蓝金黄计划和盗窃知识产权等行为的曝光,全世界对中共在经济上、政治上和军事上的威胁日趋清醒,世界各国纷纷出台制裁政策。在国内由于人民币超发、官员贪污腐败、各地疫情四起以及超级洪水肆虐,使经济面临崩溃、老百姓民不聊生、中共政权也是危机四伏。

在内外交困之际,中共是否有可能为了转移国内外的注意力,孤注一掷,对台湾发起武统呢?目前,这个问题无人可以回答,但是做好最坏的打算是十分有必要的。

由共和党众议院议员泰德·尤霍发起的《台湾入侵防御法》将会起到威慑中共、防止中共对台湾发起突然进攻的作用,也是给台湾最有效的保护。中共已经毁了一个香港,决不能再让它毁了台湾。希望《台湾入侵防御法》能够早日通过和实施。

Washington, July 19 (CNA) Republican House Representative Ted Yoho said over the weekend that he plans to put forth a bill that would authorize the president of the United States to respond with military force if China decides to attack Taiwan.

7月19日(CNA)华盛顿,共和党众议院议员泰德·尤霍(Ted Yoho)在周末表示,他计划提出一项法案,授权美国总统在中共国决定进攻台湾时可以用武力回击。

"We are introducing a bill next week that's going to be called the Taiwan Invasion Prevention Act," Yoho said in an interview on Fox Business Network last Friday.

上周五,尤霍 (Yoho)在接受福克斯商业网络(Fox Business Network)的一次采访中说:“下周,我们将提出一项法案,该法案将被称为《台湾入侵防御法》。”

The Republican congressman, who is a member of the U.S. House of Representative's subcommittee on Asian affairs, made the announcement in response to a question on whether the American government was doing enough to back Taiwan amid China's constant threats.

作为美国众议院亚洲事务小组委员会成员的共和党议员,尤霍(Yoho)是在被问到台湾持续受到中共国威胁,美国是否给予台湾足够的支持时,发表这一声明的。

"This [Taiwan Invasion Prevention Act] is something that's going to lay very clear what our intent is," said Yoho, a vocal supporter of Taiwan. "In fact, it will go to the point where it authorizes an AUMF (Authorization for Use of Military Force) if China invades Taiwan, and it'll be a sunset for five years, that AUMF, that would authorize the president to use force."

作为台湾的声援者,尤霍 (Yoho)说:“这项《台湾入侵防御法》将非常明确地表明我们的意图。 事实上,这项法案会在中共国入侵台湾时授权使用武力(AUMF)。这项法案将授予总统使用武力的授权(AUMF)。授权使用武力(AUMF)的日落条款规定法案将在每五年审核一次。”

He noted that under the U.S.' current Taiwan Relations Act that took effect in 1979, the U.S. is committed to sell Taiwan enough weapons to defend itself.

他指出,目前美国根据1979年生效的《台湾关系法》,承诺向台湾出售足够台湾自卫的武器装备。

"But when Xi Jinping has announced that he's ready to draw blood over Taiwan and reunify them, they forgot to ask Taiwan," Yoho said. "Taiwan has never been part of the People's Republic of China, and nor do they want to."

尤霍说:“习近平宣布他已经准备好,不惜流血也要统一台湾。但是他们却忘记了征求台湾的意见,台湾从来就不是中华人民共和国的一部分,他们也不想加入。”

Yoho was being interviewed on a program called "Red Storm," hosted by Lou Dobbs, which focused on China's expansionist ambitions in the Asia-Pacific region.

尤霍(Yoho)在Lou Dobbs主持的“红色风暴”节目中接受了该采访,该节目着眼于中共国在亚太地区的扩张主义野心。
