Correction for accuracy: Nancy Pelosi clarifies a vague claim by Biden that the Pentagon thinks it might not be a good idea for Nancy Pelosi to visit Taiwan.
Nancy Pelosi wrote:
"I think what the President was saying is -- maybe the military was afraid our plane would get shot down or something like that by the Chinese. I don't know exactly. I've heard it anecdotally, but I haven't heard it from the president."
There's an opinion piece by some nobody saying that Chinese planes should escort Pelosi (not shoot her down), and a statement by the Foreign Ministry that visits by US politicians to Taiwan threaten the ongoing discussions between Biden and Xi (there's a meeting on Thursday) but sure, let's get in our two minute hate.

The posturing is by American authorities playing to an American audience.
