Ray McGovern’s Likely Last (as in ‘Final’) Appearance on SKYNEWS/Australia

It was worth it. “Biden didn’t want to look ‘soft’ cancelling Pelosi’s Taiwan visit.”

“Former CIA officer Ray McGovern says US President Joe Biden could have prevented US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan but didn’t want to “seem soft” on China with mid-term elections coming up.

“He said Ms Pelosi’s visit is a ‘provocation’.

“‘If the Chinese reply, as I think they will, with some rather strong military measures, will that be unprovoked? Sorry, it will be provoked,’ he told Sky News Australia.”

Ray McGovern works with Tell the Word, a publishing arm of the ecumenical Church of the Saviour in inner-city Washington. His 27-year career as a CIA analyst includes serving as Chief of the Soviet Foreign Policy Branch and preparer/briefer of the President’s Daily Brief. He is co-founder of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS).

  1. Sky News is a funny place. On the one hand they seem willing to poke our dear leaders or at least our idiots on the left, which makes them more watchable than many news agencies, but when it comes to foreign policy they are beyond useless. In fact Australia in general is pretty much useless, talk about one lame culture. The vision people have of them is rugged, individualist, take no BS kind of people, it couldn’t be further from the truth. Talk about a nation full of followers and government butt kissers. They aught to all try to swim back to England and leave the country to it’s original people, who if left alone might turn the nation back into a place worth living. As it stands now it’s as if the Estrogen wars took place and Estrogen won easily, leaving not a trace of testosterone behind.

  2. Mr. McGovern makes sense. We have yet to hear a word of wisdom from our senile president.
    China helps funding and building schools and hospitals and roads in poorer nations and is growing BRICS.
    The US is destroying the economies of its allies in the EU and with their economies they are also destroying NATO by extorting them to be its proxies to fight its wars. The US, in some 20 years, has destroyed the ME leaving a trail of blood, death and suffering in its wake.
    The US is set to destroy Russia, Europe and China and claim they bring freedom and democracy, while at home the nation is rotting away.

  3. I fully agree, this is “Ray McGovern’s Likely Last (as in ‘Final’) Appearance on SKYNEWS/Australia.” Excellent summary from Ray.

  4. Biden did not want to look “soft” cancelling Pelosi’s Taiwan visit. He and other Democrats are soft in not being able to stand up to the Republicans so they just copy them and compete with them in causing tension with Russia and China and in drone strikes and wars in Developing Nations.
