    Why do you behave like a giddy child on Christmas Day morning whenever the prospect of war is mentioned?

    Honestly, with your tub-thumping and frantic posting across various threads whenever a rifle is lifted anywhere in the world, you make for a pretty sad specimen of humanity.

    Yes, the chinkies never stop whining.

    Damn but that sure does sound racist does it not?

    I just may be guilty.

    Nancy Pelosi - Our Congressional delegation had the great privilege of meeting with the Vice President of the Legislative Yuan Tsai Chi-chang here in Taipei.

    We reiterated our ironclad support for Taiwan’s democracy, including on matters of security & stability, economic growth and governance.https://twitter.com/SpeakerPelosi/st...48473777569792

    ^ & ^^ Hold on!

    I have to rub it in a little more.

    Yesterday when I posted the link to Pelosi's plane leaving Taiwan (Flightradar24: SPAR19 just took off from Taipei) I was able to view all the planes flying in the area.

    The sky’s were full of commercial flights all around Taiwan. Over the island, close to the coast line, north and south bound

    Not a one was shot out of the sky

    China set to begin effective Taiwan blockade hours after Nancy Pelosi concludes visit

    China is set to launch an unprecedented military drill that effectively blockades Taiwan until Sunday afternoon following US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to the island.
    During her brief stay Pelosi met President Tsai Ing-wen and other senior politicians as well as human rights activists, before flying on to South Korea on Wednesday afternoon.
    Her visit to the island, which Beijing regards as a breakaway province, has plunged the China-US relationship to new depths and triggered the worst crisis over the Taiwan Strait for decades.


    Beijing saw the trip as an explicit provocation and a move to embolden the island’s independence-leaning government.

    Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi lashed out at the visit, saying it “maliciously violated China’s sovereignty” and proved that the US was the “biggest destroyer of peace and regional stability in the Taiwan Strait”.

    Beijing followed the condemnation with a slew of punitive measures against Taiwan, including live-drills in six areas around the island’s coastline that will run between noon on Thursday and the same time on Sunday.


    Airlines operating in Asia were warned to avoid flying close to Taiwan during the exercise with ships being told to stay away from the “danger zones”.
    Pelosi, second in the line of succession to the presidency, is the highest-level American politician to visit Taiwan in 25 years, defying repeated protests from China.

    It is not unprecedented and scheduled flights will continue. Time for the news media to cease their scare mongering bullshit.

    Notice how our snivelling chinky sycophants have been as quiet as a mouse?

    It must be embarrassing for them after all their crowing about chinky superiority and its mighty military.

    One suspects the NaGastan navy vessels, 3 surface and xxx subsea, being 1,000's KM from NaGastan's shores, stop lurking around China, is more threatening/important to the Chinese Military, than the media reports.
