For the time being, China does not know how to react, but it will be naïve to assume they won't react for the long run...
You are forgetting Gingrich went when he was speaker.

Default China Retaliates Against Taiwan For Hosting Pelosi

https://news.yahoo.com/china-unleash...012220241.html


What exactly did Taiwan get out of all this??? They had to endure a punishing visit from the wicked witch of the west, and now they are being punished by China economically for hosting her. Was anything actually accomplished or did Pelosi just do all this for the pictures and to show off the highest eyebrows you've ever seen?

Remember who's who... Pelosi, Biden, China - all on the same team.

This is probably a set up to do the Asian version of Ukraine/Russia with Taiwan/China. It may not be exactly the same, but I am expecting aggressive activity towards Taiwan.

Biden leaked the trip details... China makes threats... Pelosi goes anyway... now China has a reason to act against Taiwan. In the end, China gets what they want. All of the actors have played their roles.

Or Pelosi and Xi orchestrated the whole trip drama to distract the people from internal crises. The USA has possibly the worst president ever, and China has a big real estate debacle that could turn into something much worse. Both Pelosi and Xi desperately want to take heat off the establishment political base which they both represent.

It is strange. It's almost as thought the Chinese take Pelosi seriously.

next step is for the united states to send billions to Taiwan in aid for China to use through unchecked funneling

China loses face once again.

I'm convinced we could put a military base there and they wouldn't do anything.

Taiwan received a much needed public show of support from the United States. Taiwan welcomed Pelosi. She didn't go there for personal gain. She went there in defiance of China's command of us. That took guts.

You don't have to like Pelosi's politics to show some respect for what she did.

WW2 started in Europe over the invasion of one country, Poland. In 1918 it was the death of one arch Duke and his wife that set it off. That is how world wars start.
