Chinese Live-Fire Drills Begin Around Taiwan After Pelosi’s Visit

US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is no longer in Taiwan, but on Thursday China made good on its promise that the island will pay a price for hosting the highest-ranking US official to visit in 25 years.

The military posturing was a deliberate show of force after Pelosi left the island on Wednesday evening, bound for South Korea. (Read more from “Chinese Live-Fire Drills Begin Around Taiwan After Pelosi’s Visit” HERE)
