I’m not trying to be controversial, but it’s my opinion that the United Nations’ Trump condemnation votes in regarding Jerusalem as the capital of Isreal had a deeper intention on a grand geopolitical scale. What do I mean by this? I think the countries that voted against the United States in recognizing Jerusalem as the capital for Isreal don’t really care much about the Palestinian claim for the Jerusalem, but these countries fear that if Trump is successful in claiming Jerusalem for Isreal could allow Trump to go on for an even bolder declaration.
What declaration? What if Trump gets so much confidence to eventually declare Taiwan as an independent country? I think this is why the United Nations decided to vote no against Trump because they didn’t want to see Trump crosses China’s Taiwan redline. Afterall, I don’t think China would leave Taiwan alone without doing something serious if Taiwan gets embolden enough to declare itself as an independent country. If this to happen, the whole Asia region could get roil up in events that could lead to a much grander geopolitical fallout.
What a grander geopolitical fallout in Asia? Well, imagine if China decides to invade Taiwan when Taiwan declares a separation from the motherland, the United States has to defend Taiwan. Although the United States may not aid Taiwan through military immediately, the United States will eventually have to. As the escalation gets only even more escalated, the genie would be out of the bottle and nobody at such a time would know how to bottle up the genie again.
It’s cliche to say that if China invades Taiwan we will have WWIII. I think it’s a possibility this could be the case. Though there are other options available such as the talk will begin to have Taiwan assimilates into China similarly to how Hong Kong and Macau have been. Nonetheless, you can never rule out president Trump’s unpredictability. Thus, the United Nations does not want to predict what president Trump will do. Instead of predicting president Trump’s future movements, my guess is that the United Nations decided to vote against Trump on Jerusalem decision to prevent president Trump from getting too embolden in the near future.
