The fact is Blinkin Is changing his song like the Canary. It's only a matter of time before United States determines that the leader of Russia has suddenly become mentally incompetent. And that he is must be deathly ill Because he obviously is unstable. Isn't that how it goes when you don't agree with the leader anymore They all of a sudden become evil and mentally unstable ?

The meaning of the word " Provocation " needs to be corrected.

China is an expansionist authoritarian dictatorship. Problem is, they have noticed a weakened U.S. now, like the Russians did: and they seek to capitalise on that weakness.

PLA didn't defer Pelosi plane, that's extreme disappointment to 1.4 billion Chinese people.

Starting a war in Europe and now trying to do the same in Asia. America is indeed the evil empire!

After you utterly ignored China's warning and disappointment, what do you expect China to treat yours.

Sbeast August 5, 2022 - 6:53 PM

Chinas views and actions towards Taiwan has nothing to do with Pelosi. They have wanted to take it for a long time and will likely use force at some point. Look at what happened in Hong Kong for what may happen next.
