Indeed. Proof that One China Two Systems is a lie. Taiwan is next…
In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

I don't often applaud the actions and words of Pelosi but she is right on target regarding this visit to Taiwan... Kudos!  Her op-ed explaining her visit...

Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

Xi Jinping is now the Chinese emperor... he will not negotiate nor wait for Taiwan. I  see invasion attempt in 3 years or less...

New photos show China’s artificial islands are highly developed military bases
The reclaimed reefs and rocks house airfields, radar installations and possible missile silos.

If you're not aware of this site already, you should find this interesting:

https://amti.csis.org/island-tracker/china/

It tracks all of the Chinese islands and their development progress.  Really eye opening.

This was Mischief reef in 2015...
I suppose ambitious describes the Chinese intentions... I  would classify their intentions as nefarious,  deceitful, and dangerous. They have been loud and clear about their ambitions for the region... and it isn't spreading democracy and freedom of the seas... alarm bells have been ringing for years... times almost up...

Crazy isn't it.  All of those islands have come a long way sing 2014/2015

And the island in the images you posted earlier is of Fiery Cross.  It was barely a sandbar when they started the dredging in 2014

What's crazy is... it isn't theirs and they were never islands... they were considered sandbars and environmentally sensitive coral reefs. Where is Green Peace when you need them...lol

The general said he hopes he is wrong, but “my gut tells me we will fight in 2025.”

“There has been a change in the approach from Beijing toward Taiwan in recent years,” Mr. Blinken said at Stanford University. “And instead of sticking with the status quo that was established in a positive way, [there was] a fundamental decision that the status quo was no longer acceptable and that Beijing was determined to pursue reunification on a much faster timeline.”

“When we talk about the 2027 window, in my mind, that has to be a 2022 window or potentially a 2023 window. I can’t rule it out,” he said. “I don’t mean at all to be alarmist by saying that. It’s just that we can’t wish that away.”

The US Navy reconnaissance jet flies at 21,500 feet over the South China Sea, 30 miles from the contested Paracel Islands, a group of about 130 small atolls, the biggest of which are home to Chinese military bases.

A voice, saying it’s coming from a People’s Liberation Army (PLA) airport, crackles over the radio of the US Navy P-8 Poseidon as a CNN crew, given rare access aboard the US flight, listens in.s

“American aircraft. Chinese airspace is 12 nautical miles. Not approaching any more or you bear all responsibility,” it says.
