‘Play with fire and you will get burned’: China’s Xi’s fierce warning to Biden on Taiwan in two-hour call as tensions reach boiling point and White House braces for potential military response to Nancy Pelosi’s trip

President Joe Biden spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping Thursday morning amid rising tensions with Taiwan 

Xi said during the two-hour call, according to Chinese state media: ‘Those who play with fire will only get burnt. Hope the U.S. side can see this clearly’

The call is the fifth time the leaders spoke since Biden took office last year

Chinese press reports that Taiwan will ‘bear the wrath of Beijing’ should House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to the island go forward 


Almost exactly the same play US/NATO did on Ukraine to provoke the Russian invasion. Pelosi was delegated the role of provocateur by Biden’s handlers. None of this has been a surprise. This is indeed playing with fire. Xi’s lockdowns in China can be interpreted in several ways, but one major one is he has been preparing for war, preparing for just this sort of American provocation. Does USA have a super-weapon and is thus willing to take on both China and Russia at once? Or is USA falling into a hubris trap? No one can know what will happen next. ABN
