Blinken: China should not hold global concerns 'hostage'

Marcos meets Blinken in Philippines amid US-China crisis

Marcos tells Blinken: Mutual Defense Treaty with US is in 'constant evolution

(May) Analysis: Marcos as Philippine president a boon for China, awkward for U.S.
https://www.reuters.com/world/asia-pacif...022-05-10/

---------------significant difference in talk between Marcos and Blinken---------------
notice Blinken's emphasis on military alliance against China and "global" commitment
Marcos' response ? Nah, the 1951 Mutual Defense Treaty is in "constant evolution" - translation = weak to non-existent, won't go to war with China.

Claims came from Japan's Defence Ministry, and would mark the first time Beijing has sent missiles across the island

At least 11 Chinese ballistic missiles struck waters north, south and east of Taiwan less than 24 hours later, Taipei said, the first time since 1996.

There has to be more to this... Pelosi's visit was more than likely just a trip for self enrichment. Were any of her family members with her?

If she was there to conduct official business, who the hell would select her to be the emissary?

China's response seems way overblown! They either know there was way more to this or it was a distraction for something else being done secretly.

Of course, China may have just been waiting for any minor provocation so it could flex it's muscles...?

How can you guys still read trash like "The Sun" and accept anything they say anymore?
China would not attack the US bases in a preliminary strike to somehow facilitate an "invasion" of Taiwan.

This is obvious propaganda meant to drum up more "China always bad" impressions in the Anglosphere.

Sun, Mirror, Express -- FIRMLY in the DO NOT READ category for me.
