Chinese ORDER Given – Troops Are Scrambling!
(TargetLiberty.org) – China’s dangerous tantrum over the House Speaker’s visit to Taiwan shows no signs of ending anytime soon. It seems Beijing is determined to inflame the already tense situation. The question now is whether the communists will back down before something goes lethally wrong.

On August 2, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) arrived in Taiwan, and returned to the US the next day. In response, China, which had been protesting loudly about her rumored trip, has launched a series of aggressive military exercises. The most dramatic incident was Thursday’s launch of eleven short-range ballistic missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads. Japan claims several of these missiles flew over Taiwan itself, before landing inside Japan’s Exclusive Economic Zone. China has also sent warships close to Taiwanese waters and increased flights by military aircraft — 22 of which crossed the international boundary in the center of the Taiwan Strait.
Although Taiwan has never been part of the People’s Republic of China, Beijing claims the island nation as its own territory and has vowed to “reunify” it with the communist state, by force if necessary. Since the hardline Xi Jinping took power in 2012, China has been increasingly belligerent about any contact between the Taiwanese government and other nations. As well as the ongoing exercises, the communists now say they plan to reduce diplomatic contact and military liaison with the US in retaliation for Pelosi’s visit. Tension in the Taiwan Strait is rising to dangerous levels, and China doesn’t seem to care.
