    Pelosi and Taiwan

    I thought there was a thread about this trip.. But cannot find it.

    Saw this in a newsletter..

    There have been rumors going around that before her planned April trip warnings were sent to the US government that her plane would not be allowed to land. If that is one of the things that the PLA is considering then things could really dangerous really quickly.

    We are still at least 10 days away from any possible trip, one thing to watch will be if and how authoritative media like People's Daily warn about the consequences a Pelosi trip. The fact that the US military does not think a trip is a "good idea", and I assume by that Biden mean USIndoPacom, who would bear the brunt of anything kinetic over her trip, is an indication that threats are being taken seriously and that the PLA has lots of capabilities that could cause the US military and Taiwan military a lot of problems.

    Holy F*ck! Great way to kick off a war.

    Relax Xi. Pelosi is just a huge fan of beef noodle soup and oyster omelets.

    Bunch of US senators came in May, their plane landed, haven't noticed any consequences yet (other than a recent brutal heatwave, in case China is secretly controlling our weather...).

    Not losing sleep over Nancy Pelosi's visit...

    Except that she is arriving at a time when the CCP politburo are holding a conclave to agree on what will happen in the upcoming Congress

    He wouldn't want to lose face

    Biden could use some distraction from his poll numbers.

    Fine, send a few more fighter jets over (it's pretty much a routine occurrence where they violate airspace and Taiwan jets are sent out, good practice for everyone).

    Then send a couple of warships out (I think a US destroyer is already wandering around nearby).

    Point out the American aggression to your audience and how you are firmly dealing with it.

    If you must, shoot a few missiles into the Strait of Taiwan (a nice change from the missiles North Korea is routinely lobbing in Japan's general direction).

    Lather, rinse, repeat...
