It isn't like China controls Taiwan's entry immigration or VISA process.

OTOH, what's the worst that could happen? She gets abducted and moved to the mainland? Seems like a fair trade to me. Hope she takes her husband on the trip too.

China is really good at IP Thief, cybercrime, bullying Chinese citizens at home and abroad too, not just threats towards other countries.

Anyone visiting Taiwan is no business of China's. Go bleat like a lamb somewhere else. Nobody is listening to you China, your demands are irrelevant.

I have zero respect do Pilosi but she could earn a small portion if she follows through with the visit. Would still rather see a president go.

It will happen. Nancy was the higherst ranking US politician to attend the Hiroshima Ceremony. Soon afterwards Pres Obama attended. Don't be surprised if this isn't a lead in as well.

As far as China is concerned, too freakin' bad.

Put American nuclear weapons in Taiwan, end 'strategic ambiguity', have a formal and open defense pact, and make it clear that Taiwanese voters will be the only ones to decide their future.

This will solve the problem.

China’s good at producing threats now that they are stronger. Making threats is their #1 export.

She should go just to piss off China and show them they don't run the world.

Zhao Lijiang, said "if this visit occurs, we will steal intellectual property, thwart WTO rules, claim other country's property, dump low cost-subsidised- market- wrecking products, violate every human right and perform genocide".

In other words, nothing will change.

Nancy Pelosi is 165 cm tall and in feet inches, her height is 5' 5”. Her weight is approximately 60 kg or 132 lbs. She is an 82 year old woman and China is intimidated by her.

Lol

I don't know what China could do that wouldn't hurt them worse than it would hurt the US. Make a lot of loud angry pronouncements? I kind of doubt they would boot the US Ambassador or withdraw their own. Baby Ping Ping will wet himself. Stuff a binky in his mouth and change his diaper. By October he might be gone anyway.

I don't think Beijing understands what it's getting into when it steps into a tussle with Pelosi.

Yeah, because we all saw the effect a geriatric man blustering threat had on Nancy.

severely undermine China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, gravely impact the foundation of China-U.S. relations and send a seriously wrong signal to Taiwan independence forces,

So, when you build islands out of nowhere, your “wolf warriors” (Chihuahuas) talk facts on the ground. But when it comes to visiting an island that regardless of your claims is self-governing, it’s territorial integrity.

Am I getting that correct?

Um, no. That’s not how it works.

What are you gonna do, China? Throw a tantrum? Spit your dummy out of the cot?

Everyone knows China is too gutless to do anything. Pelosi has every right to go to free, beautiful Taiwan - a firm friend of the US.

She has to go now . Can't be seen to be pushed around by China .

China: thinnest skin on planet Earth
