Pelosi's Affront: A Biden Regime Act of War on China by Other Means
by Stephen Lendman
Are things heading toward global war 3.0 with nukes?
The empire of lies is waging proxy war on Russia with expendable Ukrainian Nazified and conscript foot soldiers.
Is Pelosi's affront to China's sovereignty — by arriving in what it considers a breakaway province — a Biden regime shot across the bow, a step toward confrontation with Beijing in similar fashion to its hostile actions against Russia?
In pursuit of its diabolical drive for global hegemony, both wings of the US war party need enemies.
Throughout the post-WW II period and earlier, none existed so they were created.
That's how the scourge of imperialism operates.
The US version poses an unparalleled threat to humanity domestically and worldwide like no other previous empires.
As previously stressed, Pelosi is one of the most abhorrent figures in US political history - a Biden regime typhoid Mary.
Defying repeated stern warnings by Beijing to stay away from where she doesn't belong, she arrived in Taipei Tuesday evening.
Her customary litany of bald-faced Big Lies followed, saying:
"Our congressional delegation's visit to Taiwan honors America's unwavering commitment to supporting Taiwan's vibrant democracy (sic)."
Fact: Hegemon USA abhors governance of, by and for everyone equitably — tolerating it nowhere, not at home or abroad anywhere.
Her Asia/Pacific trip to Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea and Japan has nothing to do with "mutual security, economic partnership and democratic governance (sic)," as Pelosi falsely claimed.
It's all about US pursuit of regional hegemony by whatever it takes to achieve its diabolical aims — mainly by hostile anti-China actions.
And this Pelosi bald-faced Big Lie, saying:
"Our visit…to Taiwan…no way contradicts longstanding US policy, guided by the Taiwan Relations Act of 1979, US-China Joint Communiques and the Six Assurances (sic)."
Hegemon USA long ago abandoned its one-China policy.
The Trump regime announced it.
The Biden regime put an exclamation point on support for Taiwanese independence — especially by Pelosi's provocative visit to Taipei.
And this Pelosi perversion of reality:
"The US continues to oppose unilateral efforts to change the status quo (sic)."
Her Taiwan trip drove a stake through its heart — compounded by saying that Beijing cannot stand in the way of more (provocative) visits by US officials to the island.
Timed with her arrival, China's Foreign Ministry minced no words, saying her visit severely impacts the political foundations of China-US relations.
A more detailed statement said the following in part:
"(I)n disregard of China's strong opposition and serious representations…Pelosi visited China's Taiwan region."
"This is a serious violation of the one-China principle and the provisions of the three China-US joint communiques."
"It gravely undermines peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait, and sends a seriously wrong signal to the separatist forces for 'Taiwan independence.' "
"China firmly opposes and sternly condemns this, and has made serious demarche and strong protest to the US."
"There is but one China (and) Taiwan is an inalienable part of China's territory."
"The Taiwan question is the most important and most sensitive issue at the very heart of China-US relations."
"(T)he US (is) attempting to use Taiwan to contain China."
Its "playing with fire…moves…are extremely dangerous."
"Those who play with fire will perish by it."
On Wednesday, China's Foreign Minister, Wang Yi, called hegemon USA the "biggest troublemaker" of peace across the Taiwan Strait and worldwide.
No matter how it pushes for "Taiwan independence," its aim will be in vain.
Late Tuesday evening, China's Vice Foreign Minister, Xie Feng, summoned Biden regime envoy to Beijing, Nicholas Burns, "and lodged stern representations and strong protests over" Pelosi's provocative visit to "China's Taiwan region," stressing:
"China will not sit idly by" in the face of hegemon USA's efforts to distort, hollow out, and destroy the one-China principle.
Instead of restraining Pelosi to ease Sino/US tensions, dominant Biden region hardliners support her provocative visit.
No nation, ruling regime or individual should underestimate Beijing's resolve to "defend (its) national sovereignty…territorial integrity and to achieve national reunification and rejuvenation."
On Tuesday, the PLA began naval and aerial military exercises around China's Taiwan province as "a stern deterrent against (US support for its) independence."
On Wednesday, China's Global Times said the following:
"On Tuesday night…Pelosi sneakily landed in China's Taiwan island like a thief," greatly escalating Sino/US tensions.
"China repeatedly warned on how egregious the nature of the visit and how serious the consequences could be."
"But Pelosi turned a deaf ear" and a blind eye as part of US war on China by other means.
The Biden regime virtually endorsed her provocation by "tak(ing) (no) effective measures to stop it…"
A heightened state of US Cold War exists against China.
The ominous risk of it turning hot is real.
"Pelosi's stupid, reckless, dangerous provocative actions welded the entire responsibility for undermining peace and stability across the Taiwan Straits to the US and the DPP authorities," GT stressed, adding:
"This is a new escalation of collusion between the US and the Taiwan island, a serious and destructive change to the status quo in the Taiwan Straits…"
It's also more evidence of US contempt for and abandonment of the one-China principle.
It's a flagrant breach of UN Res. 2758 — recognizing the PRC as "the only legitimate representative of China to the" world body.
Separately on Wednesday, China's Foreign Ministry Arms Control Department Director-General, Fu Cong, said the following:
Pelosi's provocative visit to Taiwan "will lead to serious negative consequences."
"Serious retaliation measures will be taken against the US."
The Taiwan region will be reunited with the mainland — peacefully if possible, militarily if necessary.
Separately in response to Pelosi's provocative Taiwan visit, Sergey Lavrov said the following:
"I have no doubts that (it) reflects the very line that we are talking about in relation to the Ukrainian situation — (hegemon USA's) desire to prove to everyone and all (its) impunity…to show (its) permissiveness" and contempt for the rule of law.
A separate Russian Foreign Ministry statement said the following on this issue:
Moscow "consider(s) (Pelosi's visit) a clear provocation in keeping with (hegemon USA's) aggressive policy of comprehensive containment of the PRC."
"The Chinese side is entitled to take any measures necessary to protect its sovereignty and territorial integrity in terms of the Taiwan issue."
"Russia's principled position remains unchanged."
"We operate on the premise that there is only one China, and the PRC government is the only legitimate government representing all of China, and that Taiwan is an inalienable part of China."
Looking ahead, Beijing will respond in its own way at its own time to Pelosi's hostile act.
Live-fire military drills around Taiwan is one way, other actions likely to follow.
Her effrontery will not go unanswered.
