Taiwan Sends BRUTAL Message To China
(RepublicanNews.org) – Despite threats of retaliation from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) landed in Taiwan for a visit on August 2. Keeping true to its word, China outlined plans to “conduct military exercises” in the island’s airspace sometime between the 4th and the 7th — a prospective move the sovereign island condemns as a violation.
The maneuvers will include “live-fire drills” in multiple regions immediately off Taiwan’s coast.

The island’s Defense Ministry Spokesperson, Sun Li-fang, called the move “reckless” and a threat to the nation. Others said the expected CCP action defies UN rules.
Pelosi called the display immature, dismissing the matter. Instead, the California legislator, who was the first in her position to visit Taiwan in 25 years, focused on relations between America and the Taiwanese.
Because of the so-called saber-rattling by the Chinese, the Biden administration instructed the US Navy to move a number of warships into position around the island during Pelosi’s visit. The CCP took similar action with a couple of aircraft carriers and also flew planes close to the sovereign region’s airspace.
The House Speaker departed the nation without incident, but the lasting effects of the visit that angered the mainland remain to be seen.
Do you think the congresswoman should have made the trip, or do you feel she should have taken the stop off her itinerary?
