“Punchbowl News reports that House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is planning a trip to Taiwan, which will be yet another incendiary provocation against Beijing if it occurs. The previous House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, sparked a significant escalation in hostilities with her visit last year, the consequences of which are still reverberating today. Antiwar’s Dave DeCamp explains: ‘Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan was viewed in Beijing as a major provocation, and it sparked the largest-ever Chinese military drills around the island.'” [editor’s note: Why is it be any of the Beijing regime’s business who visits another country? How is it “aggression” for, say, Xi Jinping to visit Cuba, which is as much a part of “the United States” as Taiwan is of “China?” – TLK] (01/24/23)
