See China's reaction as Pelosi heads to Taiwan

House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is expected to visit Taiwan as part of her ongoing tour of Asia, according to a senior Taiwanese government official and a US official. That's despite warnings from Biden administration officials, who are worried about China's response to such a high-profile visit. The stop -- the first for a US House speaker in 25 years -- is not currently on Pelosi's public itinerary and comes at a time when US-China relations are already at a low point.
Chinese government officials have escalated their rhetoric ahead of Pelosi's prospective trip. CNN's Will Ripley reports.

This quote came from the last few seconds of this video.

The US: “we don’t seek for Taiwan’s independence.”

Also the US: “we don’t want to see the Taiwanese be coerced by China .”

Doesn’t this mean you want Taiwanese to be independent? Isn’t this a contradiction?

In 1979, the United States made a clear commitment in the China-U.S. Joint Communiqué on the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations -- "The United States of America recognizes the Government of the People's Republic of China as the sole legal Government of China. Within this context, the people of the United States will maintain cultural, commercial, and other unofficial relations with the people of Taiwan."

“My father could have been a great comedian but he didn't believe that that was possible for him, and so he made a conservative choice. Instead, he got a safe job as an accountant and when I was 12 years old he was let go from that safe job, and our family had to do whatever we could to survive. I learned many great lessons from my father. Not the least of which was that: You can fail at what you don't want. So you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.” ― Jim Carrey

Jimi Hendrex was indeed a wise man. As a teenager in the 70's I would give anything for the world to get back to that era. That decade was the golden age for us boomers. We knew how to protest without a gun in site other than when police showed up for crowd control, and they were the ones with guns and with few exceptions, no one was harmed, the Kent State massacre for one.

This is a bit confusing. In 1975 and 1980 I went to Formosa/Taiwan . The U.S. government did not recognize Taiwan as a sovereign nation. It was easier then because they were an actual democracy and had plenty of freedoms. So much easier, I couldn’t get a visa to get into China, even though my parents were Chinese immigrants. Today, maybe we do recognize Taiwan as being separate from China. China wants to annex Taiwan much like they re-annexed Hong Kong and Macau. The difference is the British had a lease on Hong Kong and Portugal had on Macau. There may not be any truth to the fact that Japan were originally Chinese exiled to Japan and Chinese exiled to Taiwan. We don’t study Chinese history here in the U.S. but will be interesting to find out about the origins of these nations.

As John Kirby said yesterday, Newt Gingrich visited Taiwan as the Speaker of the House in 1997, there isn't any reason for China's overreaction! It looks like China just arbitrarily drawing the "red lines".

The difference between Gingrich's visit and now is that China has become richer, stronger, and aggressively bolder thanks to years of the so-called "constructive engagement" of the US policy. The proponent of the policy expected as China becomes richer and more involved in the western market, it will become more open and follow the established international order. How wrong was that assumption! China has used the high tech to spy on its own people and tighten the grip; used the money to build up military to harass its neighbors; and declared that it will not follow "the rules established by the West."

They've been flying over the median line of the strait for years. It's not new.

The trip is very much needed. This is a low stakes way for Pelosi to demonstrate we do in fact stand with Taiwan even though we do not support their independence.

Taiwan is an amazing country. It is democratic and demonstrates how this can be combined with respect for Asian culture. The people are kind and welcoming. I’d encourage everyone to visit if they get the chance as there are no restrictions on what you can do where you can go.

In China, (1) the state can force Chinese nationals at home and abroad to carry out military activities in their respective countries (National Defense Mobilization Law, effective in 2010); (2) the state can force Chinese nationals at home and abroad to do spy activities in their respective countries. (National Intelligence Law, effective 2017). Chinese citizens who do not follow the instructions and orders of the Chinese government will be arrested and have no option to decline.
Together, these two laws create the most dangerous security situation for every country.🇯🇵🇺🇦🇹🇼🇯🇵

US lost China forever after Pelosi's visit to Taiwan, analyst says.
With the US House Speaker's arrival in Taiwan, Washington believes it has won the round, although from a strategic point of view it is losing China for good as Beijing moves even closer to Moscow, it told Sputnik on Wednesday. (3) Russian military analyst Aleksei Leonkov.
On Tuesday, the Chinese Foreign Ministry claimed that certain politicians in the US were "playing with fire" on the Taiwan issue, following their personal interests. The entity promised to take all necessary measures in response to Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan. After Pelosi's plane landed in Taipei, the Xinhua news agency reported on large-scale drills in the waters around the island from Aug 4-7.

Russia and China together are twice as many as the US and Europe!

Although I would like to know what the policy is allowing them to justify this. If no one, for my lack of a better word, 'important' has been to Taiwan in a while, why make this distinction now? There is a very complicated relationship between China and Taiwan, coming in between that out of the blue is going to be a tense situation for both regions involved

I think it's interesting how the Taiwan visit was left off the official itinerary. It avoided confirming or denying if the visit would happen and gave the U.S. an out just in case.

I also think this is mostly a power play by the Democrats to curry support ahead of the midterm elections.

It is like what if the USA lost the American civil war and fled to Hawaii. Then CSA wants to occupy Hawaii to finish the war off after 70 years. Yes CSA never owned Hawaii before but do you consider it’s an invasion or just finishing off a civil war? At same time, China is trying to help USA Hawaii government to fight off CSA “invasion” by providing weapons and offer political support by sending top official there.

With China making noise about re-unifying Taiwan by force sooner than later after witnessing Russia's difficulties; concerned that Taiwan will fortify like Ukraine; so vociferous in their threats and warnings as of late, this trip may be warranted.

Whether planning it in the first place was wise or not, we can't back down and show weakness now.

I get what you’re saying but I don’t think we should negotiate with China. We’re neutral with a tilt toward Taiwan and the fact that Pelosi is going *there* and not China is us declaring to China that Taiwan is its own unique nation. That’s what pisses them off so much and I’ve talked to a handful of Chinese people who have explained as much. We can’t let this one go.

All I can say is the US might want to either initiate a draft or up their recruiting. From what I remember Obama cut the military to save money. I'm not sure what our numbers are now and our equipment and weapons are outdated. Most weapons are dated during the Vietnam war with the M-16. Our equipment besides drones (Humvees and other vehicles helicopters and F-14s) are dated back to the 90s. Also not to mention that Generation Z is in our military so it's real soft and baby fied and I fear they might throw rainbow flags at the enemy and shout "I identify as a female". Nothing like it used to be when I was in 2005-2009.
