Other critics of China apologists have included sportscaster Bob Costas, CNN anchor Jake Tapper, Hollywood producer and comedian Judd Apatow, UFC star Colby Covington, and ex-NBA player Enes Kanter Freedom.Anything else?
Meanwhile, China launched missile strikes in the Taiwan Strait on the heels of U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan on Tuesday, which she said "should be seen as a strong statement that America stands with Taiwan. We came to Taiwan to listen to, learn from and show our support for the people of Taiwan, who have built a thriving Democracy that stands as one of the freest and most open in the world."
U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken criticized China's missile launches as a "significant escalation," the Daily Mail reported.
NBC News reported that the rising tensions in the region look far different from a similar situation in 1995-96 when "the U.S. Navy sent warships through the Taiwan Strait and there was nothing China could do about it."
“It’s a very different situation now,” Michele Flournoy, a former undersecretary of defense for policy in the Obama administration, told NBC News. “It’s a much more contested and much more lethal environment for our forces.”
The network said Chinese President Xi Jinping now has "serious military power at his disposal, including ship-killing missiles, a massive navy and an increasingly capable air force. That new military might is changing the strategic calculus for the U.S. and Taiwan, raising the potential risks of a conflict or miscalculation, former officials and experts say."
