    If you think the US could win a war for Taiwan on China's doorstep you'd be mistaken. But this is what empires always do. They get in wars to preserve the empire that are exactly what ends the empire.

    Damn good VP but never fit for the Presidency imo. Even though being directed to stay on script there are just so many non-verbal ways to stray off script and Joe seems to find them all.

    From the Global Times today

    PLA will not sit idly by if Pelosi visits Taiwan island, Chinese defense ministry warns; indicating PLA ‘fully prepared’ for all scenarios - Global Times

    Chinese analysts said the strong warnings from the Chinese military meant that the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) is well prepared for all the possible challenges if Pelosi visits the island, and they advised the PLA Rocket Force to conduct drills with new missiles targeting any possible US aircraft carriers and other large military vessels that may be involved in Pelosi's visit

    Hu Xijin, a commentator for the Global Times, said that he expected to see PLA's aircraft flying together with Pelosi's plane into the airspace of Taiwan island. That would set a great precedent for the PLA to patrol above the island, which would be far more meaningful than Pelosi's visit.

    Sooner or later, the PLA's aircrafts will enter the airspace above Taiwan in a legitimate and righteous move to manifest China's sovereignty over the island.

    Yep just like Russia wont do anything about Crimea in 2014. Or Donbass in 2022. Or the US wouldn't do anything in Cuba 1962. Or the UK wouldn't do anything in Argentina 1982.

    Brilliant analysis.

    There has been speculation that China will announce a no-fly zone. I think it's doubtful that they will do that but if they do, Pelosi won't fly to Taiwan.

    They can have their own no-fly zone. No fucker wants to go to chinkystan anyway, it's a disease-infested shithole.

    US military making plans in case Pelosi travels to Taiwan

    Oh, yes she will. China will knuckle under. Their air force is no match for US aviation. Even if they somehow had planes even close to ours, their pilots could not come close to matching up.

    Nancy Pelosi hasn’t said if she’s going to Taiwan, but if she does she’d be entering one of the world’s hottest and most contentious spots. While U.S. officials say they have little fear that Beijing would attack the U.S. House speaker’s plane, they are aware that a mishap, misstep or misunderstanding could endanger her safety. So the Pentagon is developing plans for any contingency.

    WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden said on Wednesday that U.S. military officials believe it’s “not a good idea” for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to visit Taiwan at the moment.


    Biden’s comments in an exchange with reporters came a day after the Chinese Foreign Ministry said it would take “resolute and strong measures” should Pelosi proceed with reported plans to visit Taiwan in the coming weeks.


    “Well, I think that the military thinks it’s not a good idea right now,” Biden said in response to a question about Pelosi’s reported trip. “But I don’t know what the status of it is.”


    The president stopped short of suggesting that Pelosi not travel to Taiwan.

    Biden says military does not support Nancy Pelosi trip to Taiwan




    She ain't going and that's a good thing.
    A true diplomat is a person who can tell you to go to hell in such a manner that you will be asking for directions.

    This is simply delusional. The backbone of the US air force and navy is still 4th generation fighters.

    Lets see... China has 636 Flankers of various variants. J-11, J-16 and su 35. Shenyang J-11 - Wikipedia

    China has 548 J-10 fighters. Chengdu J-10 - Wikipedia

    50 5th gen J-20 fighters.

    The total PLAAF has 3370 aircraft is service and 400,000 personnel. And Taiwan is literally on China's front doorstep.

    But hey. Go ahead. End the empire in your quest to prolong it. Just like the British did.

    She might not go this time. But we will witness this epic display of stupidity in the not too distant future. And when it happens there will be war.

    US aviation is superior on every level. China will not touch Pelosi's plane.

    U.S. carrier strike group returns to South China Sea amid Taiwan tensions

    “USS Ronald Reagan and her strike group are underway, operating in the South China Sea following a successful port visit to Singapore,” Commander Hayley Sims said in a statement to Reuters.

    Sims added that the Reagan “is continuing normal, scheduled operations as part of her routine patrol in support of a free and open Indo-Pacific.”

    I will be the first to call Xi and pussy and a coward who can't carry Putins jockstrap if no kinetic action is taken if Pelosi weasels her way into Taiwan.

    "Get ready for war!" read a message posted by China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) 80th Group over the US visit to Taiwan, as reported on Friday, July 29. China’s Army’s war message over the potential US visit to Taiwan reportedly generated over 300,000 thumbs-up in just 12 hours, creating "high morale among Chinese soldiers" according to Global Times.

    More talk no action from China. US politicians have been visiting Taiwan for years. If China thought they could get away with an invasion using a visiting politician as an excuse, they would have done so long ago.

    Exact same rhetoric is pouring now on China/Taiwan as Russia/Ukraine in December 2021.
