Casey, the Army chief of staff, said Washington understood Beijing's position on Taiwan, but that there needed to be understanding on both sides.
"It's difficult to build a lasting relationship when we start from a point that 'we have problem and it is you'," Casey said."
Is China just NOW learning that the US government can't be trusted? Since 1949, the US has sided with Taiwan...selling them arms, much to the disdain

Is it too late to get OFF this bus? I think I missed my stop.
