US says Mike Pompeo won’t go to Taiwan after Chinese state media warns such a trip may ‘trigger a war’
Spokeswoman tweets that Europe tour will be his final as secretary of state and says China’s ‘nervous panic diplomacy is unwarranted and dangerous’
Global Times commentary said Beijing’s response would be ‘overwhelming’ if Pompeo visited island after lifting restrictions on official contacts

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will not travel to Taiwan, the State Department said on Monday, after he lifted restrictions on American officials visiting the self-ruled island. State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus tweeted that Pompeo’s upcoming trip to Europe would be his final overseas tour as secretary of state. She was responding to a commentary in Chinese state tabloid Global Times that warned a Taiwan visit by Pompeo could lead to war. “There are no plans to travel to #Taiwan this week but we will continue our consistent support for Taiwan as a successful market economy, vibrant democracy, and force for good in the world,” Ortagus said in the tweet.

“The CCP [Chinese Communist Party] must act responsibly and stop believing the lies in their own propaganda. Their nervous panic diplomacy is unwarranted and dangerous.”
Pompeo issued a statement over the weekend saying the previous restrictions on how American officials may interact with their Taiwanese government counterparts were “null and void”. He said the restrictions had been adopted “in an attempt to appease the communist regime in Beijing”, and in future all official engagements with Taiwan should be handled through the American Institute in Taiwan – the de facto US embassy.
Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian on Monday said Beijing strongly condemned Pompeo’s move and would resolutely fight back against any attempts to sabotage its interests. Beijing sees Taiwan as part of its territory and opposes official exchanges between Taipei and other governments, seeing it as a violation of sovereignty. The lifting of restrictions is one of the latest moves that has escalate tensions between China and the United States in the final days of the Donald Trump administration....

Pompeo in addition to being a liar and a thief and swindler is also a coward.

Pompeo blinked.

I love it should Pompeo go to Taiwan instead of just sending his underlings there.

"the nervous panic diplomacy of responding in appropiate manner to an open and intentional attack by us against their sovereignty"
Do they all have their heads in their *** or have they ever listened to their own bull****?

I said it previously Taiwan has been surrendered by the US. one of the predictable moves US/NATO will only fight on the western theatre meaning if China brings the war to their sovereign lands which means in the east they will fold and not engage and just give lipservice support from a distance... This means Taiwan, South Tibet (India), Vietnam etc etc all for the taking

Remember too that Murica moved all their Bs from Guam hiding them all behind Frisco Bay .:rofl::rofl::rofl:

And Murica even admitted and acknowledge bthe DF21D and DF26B not just for show. And that they hit a tiny boat a tenth of the size of a carrier moving in the ocean.:pleasantry::pleasantry::pleasantry:

On top of that, Murica is in civil war with Americans.:taz::sniper::yay:

And Murica is going broke and getting even more broke by the weeks and months.:D:D:D

Not the best time to kick sand into the face of China.

Especially as Muricans cannot even kick sand into face of sheepherders in Afghanistan and Somalia. :omghaha: :omghaha::omghaha:

It is good that the US used almost all its cards on Taiwan short of desisting from One China rule.

This means they are left with few cards.

Radical insanity drove them into reckless action which they could not complete.

The only accomplishment is that they sold some more military junk at high prices.

Also, they finally managed to push contaminated US beef down Tsai's throat. Good job.

I now see people asking which beef they provide before they go into hotpot restaurants.

Everyone chose to worship money and credit. That is your God now. We'll see how well it sustains everyone.
