Palau has requested the US build bases in the country closely aligned with Taiwan due to Chinese aggression.

The link has a cool map of US bases/presence in the area.

Fuck yeah, I can’t wait until Donald demands to quadruple the payments, for the new suckers, for American protection, as he merrily did with Japan and South Korea. These fuckers have been calling themselves American allies, but in reality they are, along with other so called nato allies, just leeches.

Did they really request it or did the US threaten them with sanctions if they didn’t comply?

Paramount, That just doesnt make sense. Proximity to China and small size means they could just side with China if they chose.

However what's more telling is there closeness to Taiwan.

Like it or not China has increasingly been the aggressor and flexing on its neighbors. If you happen to be one of these neighbors common sense says you would welcome US support. Plus a us military base comes with economic benefits.

Palau was an American trust between 1945 and 1992, yet you highlight ties to Taiwan?

Jergul, Palau has basically been protectes under US military since the end of WWII AFAIK they have nevwr asked us to build bases there. It helps they use the Dollar and such but there closest ally is probably Taiwan

US has territories in the N Mariana Islands, Guam, and Samoa. All close by. We don't need another base just to make Palau feel safe.

Dakyron, I think the US wants as much presence in the SC sea area as possible.
