It's not going to start a war. Xi evidently alarmed by Putin's failure to roll over Ukraine, so much sabre-rattling but no actual conflict—esp. not in a situation that would demand immediate maximum US engagement. Pelosi trip looks daring to media but actually quite safe. https://t.co/9BZFrzDaMm

Pelosi’s trip is a big nothing. It’s not the imminent threat of nuclear war the libs claim it is. What the fuck is wrong with y’all? If anything, the trip is intended to provoke China into live fire exercises to get a decent intelligence assessment of their capabilities for better planning against their actual inevitable invasion of Taiwan.
Fairly smart to do this now IMO.
