The danger of escalating crises is often that it is difficult to ride a tiger.

Now that Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, has gone to Taiwan—the highest-ranking U.S. official to visit Taiwan in 25 years—will there be other people follow suit?

Since China has already held such a large-scale live-fire exercise and is so close to Taiwan, why not do it again? Whenever Chinese fighter jets fly closer and closer to Taiwan Island, or more frequently, new “normal” standards are established. So, if the next flight of the PLA is not so close and a little further away, what signal is it sending?

Once upon a time, Beijing’s plans for Taiwan involved one word—engagement. Young people from the mainland are backpacking in Taiwan, and Taiwanese companies have appeared all over the mainland.
