Pelosi Departed For Asian Trip, CCP Military Drills Only Self Entertaining

On Friday July 29th, when asked about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s possible visit to Taiwan, White House National Security spokesman John Kirby said the United States has seen no evidence that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is about to take military action against Taiwan.

Kirby told reporters the US has seen no actual and clear indication of anything inappropriate in regards to Taiwan. Tensions over Taiwan were the primary discussion point in Thursday’s phone conversation between President Joe Biden’ and Communist China’s President Xi Jinping.

The CCP continues to intensify its military operations around Taiwan attempting to pressure its democratically elected government to accept China’s sovereignty claims. The Taiwan government stated that only 23 million people in Taiwan can decide their future, and even though Taiwan wants peace, it will defend itself if getting attacked.

Pelosi, as the speaker of the House of Representatives, ranks third in U.S. politics after President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. She indicated on Friday that she was leaving for her Asian trip but didn’t specify whether to go to Taiwan.

She emphasized the importance of US and Asia-Pacific relationship, then said: “I’m very excited, should we go, to the countries that you’ll be hearing about along the way,” and the US is taking responsibilities global wide.

The White House refused to comment on reports of Pelosi going to Taiwan.

Kirby told reporters: “Where she’s going and what’s she’s going to be doing, that’s for the speaker to talk to.”

Kirby said U.S. officials have seen belligerent rhetoric from the CCP about Pelosi’s potential visit to Taiwan and said, “There’s no need for that.”

An anonymous U.S. military official said that so far, the military hasn’t sent any additional warships or aircrafts to areas near Taiwan.

The United States already has a significant military presence in the Asia-Pacific region, including areas around the South China Sea. Meanwhile, a U.S. aircraft carrier is sailing through the South China Sea.
