China Holds Live-Fire Military Drills As Pelosi Visits Taiwan

by News Update

China is ramping up its military drills in response to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s historic trip to Taiwan. This is China’s first live-fire exercises off Taiwan since 1996. Beijing sent fighter jets across a critical dividing line between Taiwan and the mainland, according to Taiwan and a senior U.S. official, raising U.S. fears that either side could miscalculate. Pelosi met with human rights leaders and Taiwan’s democratically elected president Tsai Ing-wen.

Everything China Said, the same Trash Talk.” China used “ War Talk “.

The sheer reckless stupidly of this political stunt is beyond belief. Unless the USA is trying to provoke a war with China – which is entirely possible – then this was brazen, over the top stupidity of the highest order. The USA recognized Taiwan as part of China back in 1972 when Nixon normalized relations with China. Apparently, the USA is now reversing it and going back to recognizing Taiwan as independent. This will mean war with China over Taiwan and that will be a disaster for the people of Taiwan and of the USA.

Trump denounced the Nancy pelosi Taiwan visit, neocons support it, MAGA populists are against it,

China is a cowardly bully, only taking actions against Taiwan but not US (who proposed the trip)

You are a crazy fool woman. Just get out of your job, you are crazy like the rest of the whole Democrats. All you want is to make money and you don't care at all for your country.

USA better now Give Taiwan food China cut off 2500 suppliers of food to Taiwan. Hope nasty Nancy pays for it. She caused it. Hey Joe give Taiwan 10 million dollars plus food.

Ellen Benson August 4, 2022 - 8:27 AM

China's heavy handedness is a mistake. Most of the world has promoted and encouraged the modernization and evolution of China's development since Nixon opened the dialogue in my youth. For them to emulate the Russian authoritarian state, instead of a finally emerging diverse democracy , is a mistake. Any country telling other countries who they can visit and/or support – and who they can't with out threat of violence, cannot prevail.

Rod Spodar August 4, 2022 - 8:37 AM

Nancy ,thanks for trying to create peace but the inevitable is soon to come. WW3 is closer than everyone thinks, people should spend as much time with family and loved ones and spend their time wisely.

Paulus Bari August 4, 2022 - 8:41 AM

America with its allies without China and Russia, America will be the occupier and arbitrarily. Meanwhile, China and Russia without America and its allies would be invaders and arrogant as well.

Donald Bettis August 4, 2022 - 8:44 AM

Another story about Conspiringwoman Nasty Peelousey, Sneaker of the Nouse ? Nasty P ! You’re getting all the publicity, just like you planned ! I’m Nasty P, and I’m here to say, I went to Taiwan, and all America said I should stay !

This will not just be between china and Taiwan. This trip did nothing but make situations worse between china, Taiwan, and the U.S. this is basically asking for war.
