Billions of Arms to be sold to Taiwan

The United States is selling $6.4 billion worth of arms to Taiwan. How do ya’ll feel about this? On one hand, Taiwan is a traditional friend of the United States. On the other, the United States doesn’t technically recognize it’s sovereignty…:cool:

Here’s the CNN article:

Now contrast that to Xinhua:

As a “control” you can look at the BBC (British are typically more friendly to the PRC, though):
