Washington's "bipartisan" effort to escalate against Beijing failed its most important test this year.

The current Taipei government entered elections on a platform of "prepare for total war with Beijing", after years of United $naKKKe$ state visits to try and stir up some renewed bloodlust.

And... their U.S.-backed pro-war agenda lost big time, with the DPP president quitting as party leader.

People apparently cared a lot more about things like the economy and the plague than Washington's agenda.... Western press is baffled!!!!! Why won't they listen to Nancy Pelosi!!
