    I expect an event like this this is exactly what it takes to make them look away from those things

    A few tourists have come out to watch China's show of force at Pingtan island (the closest point on the mainland to Taiwan).

    Now Japan are getting pissed off and lodged a diplomatic protest because Chinese missiles are landing in Japanese territory.

    Is acknowledging self-ruled part of the one country principle?

    This seems to be a major escalation by the PRC following another speaker of the house visiting Taiwan.

    The US has an executive led form of government and the speaker does not represent the executive branch. They are really just a legislator.

    Call me an old wuss but I was out for dinner yesterday evening with loads of ex work colleagues at a company I left 25 years ago. Most of us have children some younger than others. All of us spectacularly failed to explain the rationale for the current fun and games
    These 10 points sum it up well.
