House Speaker Nancy Pelosi departed Taiwan on Wednesday for South Korea and left in her wake soaring tensions between Taipei and Beijing as the Chinese military is preparing unprecedented military exercises that will effectively blockade the island.

China also imposed sanctions on Taiwan because of Pelosi, including a ban on the export of natural sand, and a halt on imports of fish and fruit products from the island.
The US currently has no commitment to defend Taiwan if China attacks, a policy known as “strategic ambiguity.”
It’s a truly sad day for the world.
But remember: the Democrats are doing this because of economic collapse in America and losing in the Ukraine.
All the Chinese have to do to reunify Taiwan is get the Kuomintang in power next election cycle.
