    If you notice, for all the Democrats' supposed attachment to peace, most Executive wars were initiated under their administrations. For all Trump's supposed warmongering, we didn't have a war or even a "kinetic exercise" under his watch. Contrast that to Obama or Clinton who both initiated several without Congressional authorization. (You can say what you want about GW Bush and Iraq, but he at least went through the proper channels according to the Constitution.)

    My fear is that Pelosi and the Dems WANT to initiate a scrum with China to deplete our military assets. China has "carrier-killer" hypersonic missiles (land-based) and at least one simulation involving hostilities in China results in the loss of an entire Carrier Air Group to the Chinese. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJXWJ... (Note that the CAG is somewhat depleted on escort forces in this simulation. At full strength, the attack is defeated.)

    The other thing I fear - and its a justified fear IMHO - is that we have connections between many of the Democrat Party leadership and China. Eric Swalwell. Nancy Pelosi. The Bidens. The Clintons. John Kerry. The list goes on and on. And what happens if a future Administration simply doesn't have the military assets to combat China's dominance in the Pacific? The Chinese won't stop at Taiwan. They're already encroaching on the Phillippines. They've built a huge casino in Vietnam. Even the Japanese are worried even though the US rescinded their restrictions on a Japanese military, they don't have a Navy to speak of and their Air Force is primarily a defensive one.

    Who benefits directly from the Chinese gaining power? The Democrats. Traitorous. Treasonous. True.

      Its the democrats that like warfare to cover over their failures and trap the populace into supporting them once the fighting starts

          I am only reading a tiny amount of the propaganda put out by the left. it is so disgusting and useless to MY life. Both Trump AND biden are responsible for the huge money printing episode resulting in the current price inflation- no matter what they say. The federal reserve is responsible for allowing them to spend the money, no matter what Powell says. And biden destroyed the southern border= no matter what he says, and biden is terrible at managing relations with other countries, and is responsible through his weakness for encouraging russia and china to do the invasions that they want- regardless of what biden says.

    As much as I can't stand the evil and corrupt Pelosi, I do hope she makes the trip. Not to start a war with China but to assert the US will not back down to these saber rattling threats and to put China on notice that such threats will not work. If she does back down or is forced to back down by the Xiden government, then China will interpret that as a weakness to be exploited. The CCP as well as the Neo Communists (Democrats) at home run on the philosophy of take a little bit today so more can be taken tomorrow. They only stop when opposition strength makes them stop. Yes, IMHO, it's a dangerous game to play but the eventual alternative could be much worse.

      at some point the bully must be fought or killed, just the way things go in the world. Best to stand up to them before they have become too strong to stand up to.

    A couple of comments:
    1) Pelosi is most likely going to retire in January when the house goes republican and she is fired as speaker. She needs something for her legacy. Visiting Taiwan when she knows china isnt going to start a war over her simple visit
    2) Biden, being a politically oriented idiot, knows china wont start a war over this, so he can be the "opposition" and look good to china, while not encouraging them to start a war
    3) This gives china a chance to experiment with war games all around Taiwan while not starting an actual war to scare Taiwan and encourage them NOT to wind up destroyed like Ukraine if war breaks out.

    I agree, this is Nancy's last ditch attempt at POTUS, which will send Hillary into a faint. I figured she'd have to have Harris wacked, but, she is so stupid, she self destruction on her own. Now, Nncy, who was afriaid to fly commercial to go to Calif., needed a military jet, now is going to Taiwan. Too bead they will not shoot her down, kinda rooting for Xi on this one.

      Nancy doesnt want POTUS. She is too old and wants to retire with a big legacy. In 2022 she will be tossed out as speaker, and thats too much for her to take.

        I hope that legacy isn't the start of WWIII. If China were to take the excuse and move on Taiwan, I fear our current administration would let them take it. That way China wins (which is what the libbies want), our nincompoop-in-chief can claim to have ~prevented~ our involvement in a war, and no one gets really screwed but the Taiwanese. Pelosi will get the "oh, the poor dear" treatment from the libbie press, for getting out of there in the nick of time, with her skin and her wallet, and probably some lost luggage.

          Pelosi wanted publicity. China wanted to have an excuse to make a big deal out of things, and then wait to see what the reaction was from the US. They found out that biden gave in and told pelosi NOT to visit Taiwan, and that was all the chinese wanted to know/ Biden gave them a green light.

        She has always known she could not be elected, but she has spoken of being in line of succession. She can almost taste it, first female POTUS, and ahead of Hillary! Can you imagine the dmage she could do in even six months! Besides, she was heard in the hallway of Congress, talking about her "clone" not quite ready, God save us!

          if we are relying on GOD, good luck with that one. That same GOD gave the world Hitler, Stalin, Kim, Iran, Xi, and Putin. HE didnt protect us very well then, why trust him now

            I'd be careful about attributing to God the acts of men. People don't start out evil (no matter what the Pope says). They choose evil. And then it is up to good people to stop them in order to show they are good. People rarely get what we think they deserve in this life. You can bet, however, that nothing will be hid in the next life.

              assuming of course there IS a next life and there IS some sort of God somewhere we cant see him. amd where he only does "good" things and doesnt cause things like hurricanes and other disasters that kill many people.

                All true. And to my knowledge there are only two ways to test that hypothesis. The first, of course, is to pass on. The second is to postulate what kind of God could exist and then go looking. Those are the kind of deep questions in the realm of "what is the purpose of existence" and "what would be the motivations of an omnipotent being" that are truly philosophical in nature.

                I will simply say that I have answered that question for myself. As some on this forum consider such a discussion "proselyting," I will simply say that I am more than happy to continue this discussion in a private message.

                  Each of us needs to answer those questions, and we each can have different conclusions, and thats ok. We can still co exist OK in this life in any event.

                    I wish more people had that kind of attitude, to be honest. So many aren't willing to live and let live but are instead intent on forcing their lifestyle, choices, proclivities, religions (including atheism), etc. on everyone else. If everyone were simply content to share what they have without being offended when turned down and especially vice-versa, this world could really be a paradise.
