I think Pelosi’s trip was ill-conceived, mainly coz she did nothing. Maybe if she’d signed a deal for some more defensive missiles, or something. But to go over only to bloviate? Silly, stupid. Taiwan is left to pick up the pieces. Still, once her plan to visit Taiwan was leaked, she could hardly cave in to China pressure.
ADDED: Turns out that just as Pelosi is whispering her support for the democracy of Taiwan, the Biden administration has just blocked a major package of military aid to the island. Nancy’s mouth is writing cheques her own administration won’t cash. America’s bouncing cheques.
