US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan Aug. 2-3 as part of a tour of Asia. What made it newsworthy was not that she visited a fellow democratic nation, but how Taiwan's biggest neighbor, China, reacted to her visit. In this episode of China Unscripted, we talk about why Pelosi's trip was so significant, what China's response to it was, and what Taiwan and its allies might have learned about China's plans to invade Taiwan. Joining us in this episode is Guermantes Lailari, a retired US Air Force foreign area officer specializing in the Middle East and Europe, as well as irregular warfare and missile defense. He is currently a Taiwan Fellow at National Chengchi University in Taipei.
