    Default China declares 8 countermeasures against the US and slaps sanctions against Pelosi

    https://www.skynews.com.au/world-new...c63961c575199d

    Not that I don't trust the US media

    Oh, and to answer a question someone asked in another thread: Taiwan has NEVER been part of the PRC.

    Taiwan has been part of a lot of countries, to include Imperial China.

    It's splitting hairs that it has never belonged to the PRC, but hairs are real, to the tune of millions of people in an autonomous country.

    The last military force to take Taiwan by force is called the United States Marine Corps. So they can f- off and die as far as my "unbiased" opinion is concerned.

    Saipan gave the US air bases close enough for B-29s to strike Japan's home islands.

    Default China's Cheerleader - NPR

    To hear NPR tell it, the US may as well throw in the towel now

    I get your frustration. NPR sucks. But I am not all that excited about Pedo Peter leading us into conflict.

    If there was going to be an actual conflict, it would already be happening. China's not ready. They will make their move when they are regardless who is President of the US.
