There is 1 comment on Following Nancy Pelosi’s Visit to Taiwan, What Happens Next?

  1. Many thanks to Prof. Fewsmith for his accurate assessment of the ramifications of Speaker Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan. The visit was largely a photo op for Pelosi as she nears the end of her career in Washington. It only added more fuel to the fire that is threatening to engulf the entire world if things continue on their current course.

    If Speaker Pelosi wants to “defend democracy,” she should focus her attention on what’s happening here at home. She needs to make sure, for example, that the Jan. 6 Committee finishes its work in a way that will force Attorney General Garland to prosecute all those responsible for the coup attempt (including the former President). She also needs to do more to protect voting rights.
