Chinese Defense Ministry: China ready to take military action if Pelosi visits Taiwan

63

The irritation of the Chinese authorities over the repeatedly announced visit of the speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan is growing every day. Chinese Ministry of Defense spokesman Tan Kefei says that if a third person in the official hierarchy of the American leadership arrives in Taiwan, Beijing will take decisive measures, including military action, to prevent external interference in the country's sovereignty.

Earlier, the Financial Times newspaper cited the words of a representative of the Chinese Ministry of Defense, in which Tan Kefei directly warns Washington that Beijing is ready to start a military conflict if Pelosi's visit to Taiwan does take place. Moreover, the publication noted that this was not just a private statement by a representative of the Chinese military department, but “a serious warning from the Joe Biden administration.”



If, nevertheless, the American side continues to act in its own way, the Chinese army will not sit idly by and take all measures to stop external interference and separatist attempts to separate Taiwan, and resolutely stand up for state sovereignty and territorial integrity.

- referring to sources in the leadership of the PRC, the newspaper quoted Kefei's words.

According to Bloomberg, Pelosi may visit Taiwan in early August during a tour of Asia. So far, the official plans of the Speaker of the US House of Representatives for a visit to Taipei have not been announced. It seems that there is no consensus in the US leadership whether it is worth checking how real the "last Chinese threat" is. On the eve of Joe Biden, referring to the position of the Pentagon, the trip of the speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan does not seem to be a good idea at the moment.

The situation around Pelosi's visit and Beijing's loud statements about a tough reaction to Washington's hostile demarche seem to be greatly straining the White House. Not without reason, US President Joe Biden intends to discuss this issue by telephone with Chinese President Xi Jinping in the coming days.

According to The New York Times, the events in Ukraine were led by the American authorities to believe in the reality of the scenario with the Chinese military operation. Washington is now carefully analyzing the defensive capabilities of Taiwan's armed forces. At the same time, Washington does not refuse to supply arms to Taipei, thereby further confusing and exacerbating the situation around the island.

Biden adheres to the principle of supporting the "protection of sovereignty" of Taipei, including to show firmness to voters ahead of the midterm congressional elections. American experts believe that among the many disagreements between Beijing and Washington, it is the Taiwan issue that is the most difficult to resolve.

            The funny thing is that the United States themselves have put themselves in a position where it is impossible not to lose face.
            Nancy will not go - and everyone will note that the Americans can be frightened.
            Will go - and if the Chinese really take Taiwan? The United States will not help the islanders there.
            And everyone will note that the Americans do not keep their word, and that their visits end badly.
            True, if the Americans nevertheless go, and the Chinese limit themselves to trade duties instead of war, China will lose face.

          Last time, Pelosi canceled a visit to Taiwan after claiming to be a carrier of the coronavirus. I believe that this time too, judging by the reaction of Beijing, she will “prudently” catch monkeypox and also cancel the visit. Yes

            Directly removed from the tongue!
            Pelosi will drift off for her own skin and, at worst, pretend to be sick, but she won’t go to Taiwan for sure!
            If the Chinese capture her, they will bury her in the Chinese cemetery from the prison hospital! No one needs an exchange of 82-year-old Pelosi in the United States due to her old age, and Washington is not subject to it!
            I don't think Nancy is such a fool as a fool that she doesn't understand it herself.

          It turns out like this ... The Americans understand that the threat of China is quite real. And, by the way, a good reason to start solving the Taiwan issue. Not in vain, after all, China, through the mouth of the Minister of Defense, recently stated that if a military path is required to return Taiwan, they will go for it.
          In general, to be honest, it would be interesting to see how events will develop if the visit does happen (although I repeat, the probability, in my opinion, is extremely small)

If China, in the event of the arrival of Pelosi, does not fulfill its threats, then there will be trash in general. Everyone will understand that the Chinese are only capable of "the last Chinese warning." Retreating is not an option for China. In short, the back of the Americans turns into a slap in the face for them, the back of the Chinese is a delicious kick in the ass ....

    No wonder Nancy Pelosi flew to Italy on vacation, probably enlisted the support of the "great European schemers" represented by the Italians in the fight against Chinese expansion in Europe (as well as Russia), and it was not for nothing that Mario Draghi resigned as Prime Minister of Italy, probably refused in support of the Speaker of the US House of Congress. But the "democratic play" begun in 2020, Nancy Pelosi (as a representative of the Democratic Party) decided to play to the end and act as a battering ram of Chinese policy towards the Taiwanese administration, "to close the Chinese machine-gun embrasure" with her chest, testing the stamina and determination of the Chinese character. It turns out that dementia in the US Democratic Party is contagious, which is fraught with the start of a hot conflict between the US and the People's Republic of China.

    IMHO, Taiwan is the most important property for the US. More important than Saudi Arabia. And even more important than Israel.
