all anxious over the u. s. health. because trip, members of the public told us the us just wants to spread its power and influence not help them. the lucy touch, china's bottom line, she touch the red line. so both the u. s. and china have to take actions accordingly. they just use, tie one to get our attention for domestic market flow. she's to visit, we'll add tensions across the taiwan straits, which has no benefit at all for the taiwan people. with it's 6 am in moscow, 11 am in taipei and you with ot international with coming to life on the russian capital. i'm point clear, thanks for joining us. china has begun military trolls and areas surrounding tie one. the move comes and response to the visit of us house be can nancy pelosi to taipei, which kicked off earlier with her meeting high ranking taiwanese officials,
11:02 pm
including the deputy legislature, speaker and president. he has some of the latest footage shade by chinese media. 21 chinese warplanes passed through ty, once a defense identification zone, and according to beijing, military sources drills will include non nuclear missile launches on the scene, east of the island territory. those include live, fire exercises and coordination between worships and fighter aircraft, ty, ones, islands, all said to have been put on for combat alert. as chinese media are flooded by footage of needed military preparations to china had already warned washington of serious consequences of the us because visit china will definitely take all necessary measures to resolutely safeguarded sovereignty and territorial integrity . in response to the us speakers visit, all the consequences arising there from must be borne by the us side and the taiwan independence separatist forces.
11:03 pm
ah, here's a quick look at what constitutes china and taiwan is military with sources. typeface total at active forces are just a fraction of what stands behind beijing. the number of chinese aircraft navy, ships and tanks also well supports us tie ones military forces. this is the moment nancy pelosi arrived at a sanction a port in to pay the fly tracking site flight rate of 24. the come said the number of people following her jet reached almost 3000000 people. a record figure for the
11:04 pm
service, the us house because said her visit is, is evidence of the u. s. commitment to support time when needs democracy. policy has become the highest ranking american official to visit the self world island in 25 years. the white house, meanwhile, has stated that a dialogue between washington and beijing will be kept open and the u. s. won't be involved in any military conflict with china. the united states will not and does not, will not seek and does not want a crisis. we are prepared to manage, we're basing chooses to do at the same time, we will not engage in saber rattling. we will continue to operate in the seas in the skies of the western pacific. as we have done for decade, we will continue to support taiwan, defend a free and open indo pacific and seek to maintain communication with beijing. since it's switched recognition from ty paid to beijing,
11:05 pm
washington has held an ambivalent position on china and tell one, officially acknowledge as beijing as the only legitimate government for the whole of china, including tie one in line with the one china policy. whether this is not prevented the us from maintaining an official relations with ty, pay and sending military aid to the island. china now accuses the us of stirring trouble in the region. the open political provocation has aroused the fury of the chinese people and is opposed by the whole international community. this again proves that some us politicians have become the troublemakers of china. us relations and the u. s. has become the number one savage or of the peace and stability of the taiwan strait one china policy has been a definitive aspect of the us china relations for the past 40 year. but today's visit by nancy pelosi seems to put all of that on the brink of destruction. the one china policy is that the united states acknowledges the people's republic of china
11:06 pm
as the one chinese government on the mainland. that does not have diplomatic relations with the government on time. one, then an advocate, taiwan being peacefully re integrated with the mainland into one giant. now it appears that despite the fact that nancy pelosi has gone to taiwan, the white house and john kirby and others, us state department are maintaining that the one china policy does in fact, remain intact with us. they are not backing away from that. however, we're seeing signals to the contrary, a lot of action by the united states and the lead up to today's big of that have indicated that the us, the one china policy may be on the brink of being revoked. this is what we heard from a representative of the american institute in taiwan observing recent trends, the united states no longer sees taiwan is a problem in our relations with china. we see it as an opportunity to advance our shared vision for a free and open in the pacific and also as
11:07 pm
a beacon to people's around the world who aspire for a more just safe, prosperous and democratic world. now you have the visuals in 5th, they are not wavering on the issue of taiwan. however, it doesn't help when you have the president of united states making remarks like this. are you willing to get involved militarily to defend taiwan? if it comes to that? yes, you are. that's a commitment we made. now we see last official giving mixed signals almost as if they're not talking to each other before they make their statements or engage in their actions contradictory messages being sent by washington. the world is quite nervous about this as they be, or it could push things onto the brand of another global crisis. while top us officials came, washington is sticking by. it's one china policy. us how speak a nancy pelosi took part in a photo session with a tie when needs foreign minister. at the same time, she played both corporation and full support for tie. when he's 14,
11:08 pm
during the meeting in parliament, we want to increase enter your parliamentary cooperation and dialogue. and we do so at a time when our president has put forth an asian pacific initiative, which we support. and we want to be specific in terms of how we work with the child won in that regard. clearly it's a publication of china. and if you are talking about cooperation in the atmosphere, that's here at the moment of confrontation, military compensation, you're talking about building up the american presence or support of taiwan, which is basically an aircraft carrier for the united states and foreign policy coming. so i'm sure, despite the controversy over who in the white house supported america ministration, who didn't, must have the okay from president biden and from others.
11:09 pm
so it's a publication of china and it's part of the whole process that has been laid out in the madrid summit declaration of later to contain china could, can, to continue the publications of china. and of course, russia as well. the 2 countries being joined together because both represent opposition and a pole of attraction in the world to the united states. earlier, my colleague voice in shade, discuss pelosi as a to tie one with a correspondent, rachel blevins. hello. he's finally touched down there. you know, even an, even in the face of all this rhetoric from china, hello, she apparently had to make her visit. what are your expectations now that she's here? you know, she released that statement right after she touched down in which she claimed that she was there to support were she referred to as taiwan, the vibrant democracy. she also went as far as to say that she does not believe
11:10 pm
that she is in violation of the one china policy, which is absolutely not how beijing sees it is not what they have worn again and again, when it came to the lead up to this proposed visit now it was also notable that she talked about democracy there because it makes you wonder how do the people of taiwan see this visit. and what we've heard is from people on the ground there who say they are concerned about the long term impacts of policies, visit that will play out and impacted them. long after she has returned to the united states. take listen to what was said, but it's all about mercury interest. they use taiwan, they, they use the 2 political mom measure to, to benefit themselves. they only care about how the government can be holding the powers it is in their, in them states. so they just used high one to get our attention for
11:11 pm
domestic market from good hello, see, touch china's bottom line. she touched the red line. so both the u. s. and china have to take actions accordingly. only pelosi will benefit from the elusive visit. that's all. play sheets visit will attention across the taiwan straits, which has no benefit at all for the taiwan people. i really hope that the americans will not come around to mess things up so that we can live a peaceful life in all of this. it's also been notable to see how the white house has responded to this. right. you've got president biden, who himself has admitted that the u. s. military did not think this trip was a good idea that they concerned about the ways in which it would increase tensions between the us and china, exactly as we have seen. and then at the same time, you also had the secretary of state lincoln who spoke out and said that the decision was entirely up to nancy pelosi herself. and you think about all of the possible ramifications that could come out of this between the world's 2 largest
11:12 pm
economies. and yet you have the white house sitting there saying it is the speaker of the house who is allowed to make this decision. and to do something that would lead to the current tensions that we're seeing. and yet when we look back at the statements that nancy pelosi is me and she's kind of shrugged it off and downplayed the situation to say the least. take a listen to what she said earlier, the president, earlier, well, earlier in his term talked about a strong emphasis on the asian pacific. he, he has visited, their vice president, visited the secretary of commerce and others. and we want that congress of the united states to be part of that initiative. of course, as a west coast person, we see that pacific as they're, you know, that they're their home. we're part of that as well. so you can see there, she's almost shrugging it off as if it's no big deal. she's just going to see more of the pacific ocean. and yet we look at all of the ramping other tensions that
11:13 pm
we're seeing between the u as in china right now. that makes you wonder if she truly realizes the impact of this visit that let's take the politicians rhetoric out of the equation for now. rachel, what's the general view in america regarding this whole thing? yeah, there seem to be more questions than answers as to why pelosi is embarking on a trip like this. right. with everything that's going on in the u. s. right now with the american people who have repeatedly said that they're concerned about skyrocketing gas for prices about inflation. but all of the issues they have going on at home, they're wondering why the speaker of the house is making a trip like this and why she's costing the american taxpayers millions of dollars on security in order to make this possible. and that really is reflected in some of the voices that we're hearing speaking out now. questioning why now, why this trip, and why is this something that blows embarked on? here's the latest on that. nothing good will come of it. taiwan will not be more secure or more prosperous as a result of this purely symbolic visit. and
11:14 pm
a lot of bad things could happen. these include a chinese military response that could result in the u. s. being plunged into in direct conflicts with a nuclear armed russia and a nuclear armed china at the same time. so nancy pelosi goes to taipei. what's the effect of that? well, we don't need to guess the chinese government has, has said repeatedly and clearly that if nancy pelosi lands in taiwan, it could trigger a global war. but you here to provoke a wall or to start a wall. what the hell are you doing here? hello. see, so we've heard a reaction out of beijing. we've heard a bit of muffled reaction out of washington dc. what about the rest of the world? it's rather quiet at the moment. we have any other international reaction to that. yeah, you know, is interesting because earlier this week when policy was in singapore, the premier, there actually said that the focus needed to be on maintaining stable relations between the united states and china. that that was something that was in all of their best interest in the region. at the same time, we've also heard from moscow
11:15 pm
a spokesperson for the kremlin, spoke out and referred to this trip as extremely provocative, noting that russia stands with china and also that moscow understands that frustration that is coming to from beijing when it comes to this visit in the fact that the united states has continued to carry out. so certainly a lot of moving parts here, a lot to keep an eye on, and these consequences will likely be felt long after this visit is over. you think any chance at nancy pelosi could actually get stuck there because in the coming days i saw a picture of a map that with china basically publishing. so we're going to be doing these live fire drills on the west side of taiwan on the east side of taiwan in the north and south in the coming days. is it possible that polosa could actually get stuck, that he know it as an excellent question? at the same time we've seen the u. s. military really focus on trying to build up some sort of buffer zone, but you're right, that is china's reason that is right in their backyard. and so if they wanted to make it difficult, they arguably could. now the question is going to become what they decide to do,
11:16 pm
and of course, how the united states decides to react if the by an administration is really going to step in and ramp up tensions even more than what they already are at right now. let's discuss the latest developments in the region with ted to see independent arms control and conflict consultant. thanks so much for joining us. pelosi has just had a meeting with the deputy speaker of ty, one's parliament, and said she looks forward to increased quote, parliamentarian corporation between the 2 governments. what do you think she means by this? i think she's proposing to have more direct contacts between the u. s. congress and the taiwanese parliament bypassing essentially the executive functions of both countries or of the us of the country and taiwan as a region of china. if you will, to the meeting. she said that she comes in peace, friendship and the hope to avoid conflict. she also went on to commit to one for being one of the previous governments in the world. how do you think these comments
11:17 pm
will be perceived by beijing? o, they've already indicated how they perceive the comments. they're not pleased, they knew this is nothing but a provocation. their position couldn't be any clearer. they don't recognize the existence of taiwan is the separate nation. not many countries around the world do either, apart from the holy se in some pacific states, basically wherever taiwan been able to do some dollar diplomacy. the idea of having a one china policy and then leaving it good and well alone. maintaining the strategic ambiguity has been the backbone of us policy for decades, and it's largely worked and taiwan is prospered under that policy. so the idea that nancy pelosi somehow needs to go in and rectify a situation that's been working just fine, is bizarre. in the next few hours, she'll be leaving taiwan. what the trajectory will the china us relationship take off that that happens? all they pass for pay or can i still be mended?
11:18 pm
i'm sure they can be mended, but this was an unnecessary and thoughtless provocation based on the actions of someone who won't be the speaker of the house much longer at age, 82, even if the democrats managed to hold on to the house of representatives in november, elections, and if this is about her putting her footprints in the sands of history, it's remarkably old timed. do you think it's about that? i mean, what, what do you think was going on a pillow? she's mind? what is the ultimate goal in this visit, given that it has escalate to tensions between beijing and washington so far? i think it's extraordinary that we're seeing a distance. thing of the us administration of the executive function in the us to, with the legislative function is represented by speaker pelosi, i think it's, it's the same democratic party in the us controlling both bodies at the moment other that may not last for much longer. but the fact that they're saying she's on her own, essentially, and she can do what she likes, is
11:19 pm
a total abrogation of the executive functions responsibility to make and execute foreign policy. they're handing over the foreign policy on china and taiwan to the speaker of the house. of representatives, who again is $82.00 and won't be all around in that office much longer. everyone seems to be thinking. so this seems like a bad bad bad mis judgment on the part of the white house and of nancy pelosi. and in following on from that hello, she said before this visit that her trip would be evidence of america's commitment to ty, one's vibrant democracy. but at the same time, we heard from john kirby who said in his briefing, that pelosi called speak for herself with her comments about how one. so we don't seem to be getting a unified message from washington. do you expect biden, to try to coordinate a common message off to her return? that's going to be extremely difficult for anyone to do. i expect biting to drop this like a rock, as soon as she's back in the,
11:20 pm
in the us. and just try and maintain radio silence as long as you possibly can. this is yet another and a series of embarrassing moments for dividing administration that has proven incapable of managing the u. s. economy. its foreign relations have been near disastrous, the looking back to the withdrawal from afghanistan, for example, and for that matter, their handling of the conflict and ukraine. so i think he's going to try and forget about this as soon as people lead him, whether people do, let him forget about it. there's another question. do you think pelosi is going against the one china policy that was officially committed to by the u. s. in 1979 with her trip. and if yes, why? we've been talking about the importance of the timing. so why has the change occurred now? what is the purpose of the timing of the trip and the statements she's making? i think you're placing entirely too much confidence in the rational actions of nancy pelosi and for that matter, the u. s. government,
11:21 pm
i think it's semi chaos on capitol hill right now. i think there's a week president, i think there's a wavering democratic majority in the house, so they're not exactly a tower of strength either. and i think they're floundering a bit. and this to me smacks have nothing more than a publicity stunt. by a fading politician who, again, i think is probably trying to leave a mark in history. and again, it's a really, really bad time. well, she said keep getting a lot of attention right now. she leaves in the coming hours and we appreciate your insight and we'll be following the story until then. thank you very much for your analysis. take the independent arms control and complet consultant. thank you. i'm at the toy. what turmoil china has imposed sanctions against to tie when he's funds, which paging a chooses of supporting separatism and the smear campaign against spacing. meanwhile, the ramifications of policies visit have already been felt in local financial markets. she fell in semiconductor manufacturers and tie one which is home to some
11:22 pm
of the largest such companies in the world of all time need stocks dropped to about dropped about 2 percent, which is the biggest for in 3 weeks, the controversial visit of the us house because bought down the value of a number of industry giants. and in addition, the stock form was not only felt in tie one, but also with other global semiconductor manufacturers. tom longo, who is a political and market analyst and publisher of the gold goats and guns newsletter . physic washington is deliberately provoking beijing as part of an economic pressure campaign. visible philosophy is interesting because it just feels like so much theater to me and. but at the same time it is very serious. right. the chinese are vickie, very seriously in the us knows exactly what it's doing in terms of provocation. this entire affair with policy is actually the giant boss to get the chinese over commit or to overreact to the situations. and now we can start putting up
11:23 pm
a sanctions wall around china and the same way and that, that, that we put up or around russia, right? which is clearly, these are lead ups to a wider conflict. in many ways, i want as a single point of failure and he's trying to tie one appears not to have received much support in western media. and as a recent article by the new york times, the chase, the visit may plunge the us into indirect conflict, not only with russia, but also with china. us officials are a lot more concerned about ukraine's leadership than they are letting on this ukraine war is. so not over, so not stable, so not without dangerous surprises that can pop out on any given day. given the middle of all this, we are going to risk a conflict with china over taiwan, provokes by an arbitrary and frivolous visit by the speaker of the house. all of this would be terribly funny if it wasn't so serious. this ends up being a diversion from the united states offered to support the war in ukraine. what is
11:24 pm
betrayed by friedman's article is the utter chaos. that is the biden administration's foreign policy because they keep sending mix signals. they say they were back to one china policy. they don't recognize independence for taiwan. yet policies arrival and all of the other message that's going alliance suggests that so this conflict in washington were washington doesn't really know what it's doing anymore. it can't decide if it's supporting ukraine fully. or if it was in the back or their mind, what to support independents for taiwan, but they don't want to get into a conflict with china. is it? it is a confused hot mess. well, that brings us to the end of the news for this hour. we'll continue to follow closely. nancy pl, always visit in type page, where tensions remain high. don't 6 hours, and we'll keep you updated with development with our international. thanks for
11:25 pm
joining us with a notion dumbly new administrative normally stuck and just look up some levels. only a muscle is on noon. she kitty doesn't being in the green shield on nice to me as close to mamma cook as gosh, sit pretty suddenly tamika, but i put his ashley of a dc. wanted to work with wonder, please. of course, jason did not put the key for the chino drawings to network, postponing the ride, something like that. and then we got back with
11:26 pm
them with i was just, i was going with this with you, i guess with you. i am with
11:27 pm
full credit. it's going to be out of wood, from beach to still easy for this patient, but i to in the board with
11:28 pm
with hello and welcome to cross top where all things are considered. i'm peter lavelle, the so called collective west is at war with russia using ukraine as a proxy. the west has made it clear once a russia that is weaker and isolated on the world stage to date, these attempts have ended in failure. in fact, the opposite is happened. the west is weaker and isolated. ah cross sucking the wes miscalculations. i'm joined by my guest generally in new york . he is a political analyst as well as a former foreign correspondent in russia in washington. we have michael maloof. he is a former pentagon, seniors security policy analyst, and america ashley cross to martin j. he's an award winning journalist,
11:29 pm
an commentator, or a gentleman, cross sack rules and the fact that music and jumping in how me want. and i always appreciate, let me go to my michael in washington 1st. i me the soft my introduction i kind of wanted to focus in on russia, but out the news flow is kind of interrupting this error. shine is very much a in the news flow. taiwan, i'm so michael e is go do a little bit of history. remember in december, i think, december 17th, the russian said to know to diplomatic note, to nato, into the united states a do watch your step. i'm going to borrow some chinese words. you know, you could get burned with ukraine. now let's talk about right now. you know, the nancy pelosi, i suppose, as we speak right now is approaching, or maybe even be in taiwan and the chinese sworn don't do this. they'll be consequences. is there a parallel here and who's not understanding the world? go ahead, michael. well, well, thanks for having me, peter. yeah, there's an extraordinary parallel here. i think the chinese have learned from the
11:30 pm
ukraine lesson. they saw that mister putin, as you pointed out, i put down red lines and, and wanted to negotiate or they were ignored. and now he's done the same thing. jean ping is now done the same thing. he's a, he's issued or bread lines, and he's told them don't cross it or else and the, and for some unknown reason, our people are so thick added. they just cannot get the message. and it clearly is necessary that they don't, they don't understand. well, what it's like to have a, a 2 front war going on, all of a sudden, once again and, and in this case we're not prepared for it whatsoever. i'm not even prepared to to help you ukrainians and very much longer given, given how quickly they're going through the logistics. so this whole thing is just total madness.
