NEW Fox News articles can now be heard on audio! Read this article. 0:00 / 1:05 BeyondWords On “The Ingraham Angle” on Friday, author and China expert Gordon Chang said that Chinese threats to shoot down House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s plane during her probable trip to Taiwan “may not be bluff.”
As the world waits for a potential Taiwan stop, Pelosi will go on an Asian trip.
Jonathan Chafetz You are really knowledgeable about the situation. What are you going to say in response to China’s threats?
CHANG: This might not be bluster after all. We find it incomprehensible that Pelosi’s plane would be shot down by the PLA (People’s Liberation Army). But keep this in mind: Four Chinese warships are currently positioned in Japanese territorial waters off the Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea. Deep within Indian-controlled territory in the Himalayan region of Ladakh, there are Chinese forces. The Chinese and the Philippines sparked a crisis in the South China Sea a few weeks ago. China is reacting angrily. Taiwan could be the location, but it could also be somewhere else. At the present, this system is really risky.
