On Tuesday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi landed in Taiwan, marking a major escalation of U.S. aggression towards China. While this may not on it’s face seem alarming, the reality is that the U.S. is playing with fire.

1979 was the last time that a U.S. head of state or member of the ruling party visited Taiwan. Since the 70’s the official policy of the U.S. has been the One China policy, and this visit undermines this very policy. China’s statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated, “These moves, like playing with fire, are extremely dangerous. Those who play with fire will perish by it.”

To better understand the unfolding situation, we are joined by Ken Hammon, Professor of East-Asian and Global History at New Mexico State and activist with Pivot to Peace.

    • When I saw ABC I thought it was the American Broadcasting Company. But in this article it is the Australian Broadcasting Commission.

  2. China is saving Pelosi’s bacon here. This is all disgusting theater to distract from the insider trading scandal by Pelosi’s hubby… which is only the tip of iceberg of Pelosi’s corruption. She’s a died-in-the-wool traitor who doesn’t give a rat’s aperture about America or Taiwan. Pelosi & Red China have been BFF for decades.
