China just activated one million members of its reserve military forces and is moving them to the coast near Taiwan. They really don't want Peloisi's fighter aircraft escorts anywhere near Taiwan.

This is from a Chinese ex-inlaw who was activated.

I can't imagine a political party so desperately holding on to some small remnant of power so low as to start a shooting (or worse) war with China when we are at an all time low in regard to preparedness... Well, yes I can imagine that...

There is really NO reason for Nancy Pelosi to go to Taiwan at all... All I can figure is that she has some terminal disease and is going to go out in a blaze of glory, forever enshrined in martyrdom...

If they don't shoot her plane down and start a conflict that no one can win, then she will return as a heroine who stood nose to nose with Xi and didn't blink...

I'm not real keen on China telling us where when can or can't go. The timing is suspect. She was supposed to go in January but put it off due to a hangover or something... Midterms and The DemocRats are sucking wind, Brandon blowing up terrorists and Nan taking an Asian vacay is too coincidental... I don't believe a word they utter.

If Pelosi and Biden do not believe the Chinese are serious this time, they better watch out. She may just give them
reason to invade Taiwan while we are busy in Europe. If they wish to, the Chinese can take her plane out whether
or not she has a few of our fighters for escort.

I guess few of our public even suspect, let alone know, China is far and away more powerful than Russia.

Says it is nearly noon in Taiwan
11:19 AM Tuesday August 2, 2022

TAIPEI, Aug 2 (Reuters) - U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi was expected to arrive in Taipei later on Tuesday, people briefed on the matter said, as the United States said it would not be intimidated by Chinese "sabre rattling" over the visit.

One person familiar with Pelosi's itinerary said that most of her planned meetings, including with President Tsai Ing-wen, were scheduled for Wednesday, and that it was possible that her delegation would arrive in Taiwan early on Wednesday.

While the US Navy’s Seventh Fleet has confirmed the deployment of the USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) and her strike group to patrol the area’s strategically crucial trade routes, they didn’t comment on questions regarding the military or diplomatic fallout of Pelosi’s planned visit.


“USS Ronald Reagan and her strike group are underway, operating in the South China Sea following a successful port visit to Singapore,” Commander Hayley Sims told Reuters in a statement, adding the ship “is continuing normal, scheduled operations as part of her routine patrol in support of a free and open Indo-Pacific.”

I don't believe most anything China threatens because they have a history of gasbagging which has been clearly evident since I became teenager in 1960. They can put on alert and activate 30% of their population and rush them to their East coast, but they best be careful as that many people on the coast could cause the country to dip and tip. This almost happened a few years back on the island of Guam, as was reported by a Democrat congressman who enjoys a reputation for his various mental afflictions.

In this situation, I’m rooting for China. If they shoot down Pelosi’s plane and Joe declaims war on China for doing it, Joe won’t really attack his income stream and we will be rid of the wicked witch of the west. No harm, no foul.

It's reassuring, to see that Pelosi pisses people off, worldwide. After seeing what she has done to her home state, of California, and in the USA, if I were China, I'd want 15,000 miles of ocean separating us from her, too.

SNAP! Is there any way we can get her to stay over there?
