WAR?? China said that it could shoot down Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's plane if she makes a Taiwan stop, a move he said (a mouthpiece) is tantamount to an "invasion"; can shoot down Pelosi!

"The PLA has the right to forcibly dispel Pelosi’s plane and the U.S. fighter jets, including firing warning shots and making tactical movement of obstruction. If ineffective, then shoot them down."
“China Warns: Pelosi Trip Marks ‘Invasion’ and Military Has Right to Fire on Her Plane”
I share this as this is dangerous talk!
IMO this is war! I am not getting into the politics here for I think a wrong move for her to do this now, to inflame this situation, wrong move, and at this time given Russia and China uniting etc. but that is separate debate. Let us focus. If China did this, if they shot at the plane of the speaker, and if the speaker is harmed, then it is full war and we then must retaliate using the full might of the US military and all!
I think he is talking smack, this mouth piece, but he is dangerous for a mistake and accidents happen. He needs to roll this back and apologize to the US.
We DO NOT need the Chinese knock off shit anymore, let them keep it, if they did this, be prepared for full war!

"If U.S. fighter jets escort Pelosi’s plane into Taiwan, it is invasion," Hu Xijin, an analyst for the Chinese state-controlled Global Times propaganda outlet, said on Twitter. "The PLA has the right to forcibly dispel Pelosi’s plane and the U.S. fighter jets, including firing warning shots and making tactical movement of obstruction. If ineffective, then shoot them down."
