U.S. senator visits Taiwan amid high tensions with China

I think the verb "amid" should be changed to "causing"

Taiwan is not China under the CCP. Never has been and hopefully never will. Taiwan is the Republic of China. An attempt by the CCP to take Taiwan would not be "reunification", it would be an invasion and annexation. The only country stirring trouble is China/CCP.

Good for her.

A morally bankrupt, unelected Communist dictatorship has ZERO right to decide who can and cannot enter free Taiwan.

Go have a cry and fire some more missiles into the ocean floor, China.

Remember several weeks ago when our Repub friends here were all bashing Pelosi for visiting Taiwan?

"She's a warmonger" "She's just stirring up trouble." "She's an idiot."....

Think we'll see those same comments about this REPUB Senator visiting?

I wouldn't hold your breath...

"She's a warmonger" "She's just stirring up trouble." "She's an idiot."....

*Think we'll see those same comments about this REPUB Senator visiting?*

I wouldn't hold your breath...

I remember what happened when Pelosi visited Taiwan:

China responded to her trip with large-scale military exercises that included firing missiles over the island and sending ships across the midline of the Taiwan Strait, seen as a buffer between the two sides. Some of the missiles fired landed in Japan's exclusive economic zone.

Think China will respond the same because of Blackburn's visit?

I wouldn't hold your breath . . .

I wouldn't know - you seem much more familiar with CCP actions and intentions...almost as if you were part of the gov't.....what do you think?

There are 100 US Senators. Send 2 each week for a friendly visit. Make it routine.
