Pelosi Is Irrelevant: China Was Already Planning An Invasion Of Taiwan, by Tyler Durden

Will she or won’t she visit Taiwan? Will they or won’t they shoot down her plane? Does it matter—is war inevitable regardless? From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

The timing for Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan has not been released and will likely remain classified until the event.  China has announced live fire drills this week in the Taiwan Strait as a show of force and a state run newspaper has even suggested that the CCP has the right to shoot Pelosi’s plane down (If the CCP is hoping this will scare the American public, they might want to consider again that it’s Pelosi on the plane; i.e. no one cares).  China has also insinuated that direct invasion will take place if the visit occurs.  

A US carrier strike group is moving near Taiwan after being deployed from Singapore and tensions are high.  Ironically, Democrats chastised Donald Trump for “upsetting” Chinese/US relations over Taiwan only a couple years ago, and now they are one-upping him.
