U.S. urges China not to overeact to Pelosi's visit to Taiwan

The United States urged China not to overeact to U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan after Beijing deployed planes and fired live missiles near Taiwan, some of which Japan said appeared to land in its economic zone.
"We're watching this closely. We continue to urge the Chinese not to overreact here. There's no reason to react the way that they have or to escalate the tensions," White House national security spokesperson John Kirby told MSNBC.

He urged China to "bring down the tensions, just like we are doing," adding: "We're not saber rattling. Bring down the tensions and work through this so that there's no change in the status quo of a unilateral or forceful nature."

There are many reasons why the USA is now sayingvthis to China. 1 China is the biggest holder of US debt and thus could dump it all on the market which to US would have to buy back themselves. 2 China could cut imports to America and crashvthe economy. 3 The USA could not beat a few guys in the desert with AK47S and had to tick tail andcrun leaving 80 billion on arms to the enemy so do you really thing they can beat a professional army.. In fact can you name 1 war the US has won on their OWN since 1776? Neither can I
