This is coolbert:

It is not only I that had an apprehensiveness as to the visit of USA Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan.

From the Internet web site the article by STEFANO D'URSO August 6, 2022.

"Here’s A Handy Recap Of What Has Happened (And Is Currently Happening) Around Taiwan"

"China surrounded Taiwan with massive military exercises after the visit of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi."

"Since the historic visit of the US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in Taiwan on August 3, 2022, the relations between the United States, China and Taiwan quickly started deteriorating. In fact, as retaliation, China inflicted heavy import/export trade restrictions on Taiwan, as well as sanctioning Pelosi and suspending/cancelling cooperation with the US on multiple topics. In addition to all of this, China started multiple [military] exercises that completely surrounded the territory of Taiwan."

"China strongly opposed the visit, even threatening to take action against Pelosi’s aircraft before she landed in Taipei. The aircraft was reportedly escorted by eight Taiwanese Mirage 2000 fighter jets, while unconfirmed sources claim that F-15Cs from Kadena Air Base (Japan) and F/A-18 from the USS Ronald Reagan were also in the area as a precaution following the Chinese threats."

That circuitous and roundabout flight path of SPAR19 from Malaysia to Taiwan circumventing the South China sea was not taken without good reason. Rest assured some persons of power were biting their nails with nervousness during the entire episode.

See additionally the many tweets from a multiplicity of sources as embedded in the D'URSO article. Outstanding!
