Ray interviewed on The Critical Hour
By Ray McGovern, August 2, 2022
The interview came just a couple of hours after Nancy Pelosi’s plane landed in Taiwan, so we focused on how top European officials are likely to react to what China – and not only China – considers a grave, gratuitous provocation.
With NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg having recently announced a “fundamental shift” east to include China as a “systemic challenge”, and with the proxy war in Ukraine going south, will the leaders of Europe follow the likes of Jake Sullivan and Antony Blinken and, lemming-like, jump off the cliff – alienating China as well as Russia?
We noted that Russia today was swift in supporting China’s stand on the Pelosi visit – as swift as China was in supporting Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February. Would sensible leaders in Europe really want to take on both Russia AND China just because the naive twins, Sullivan and Blinken, think it’s a good idea?
