Editor's note: Despite the stern warnings of multiple parties, the United States House Speaker Nancy Pelosi still completed her visit to Taiwan. She's the first US speaker and the highest-ranking American official to go there in 25 years. And everyone is asking: what is she doing? What's the root cause that led to her trip? Readers share their opinions.

Pelosi is the personification of US foreign policy - reckless, self-serving and ex-communicated by its own double standards.

She rooted for the HK rioters yet scooted away from her own Capitol Hill rioters. Would she at anytime be writing in her memoirs that a US rioter sitting legs up in her office chair is a 'beautiful sight', her own exclamation on seeing what was happening in HK?

Her tour has been described in Asia as a "junket trip, a publicity-seeking excursion and a propaganda exercise".

Instead of bellyaching about some pretentious notion of 'democracy' whilst her own 12th district voters in democratized California languish homeless, drug-addicted, assaulted and polluted, she should have stayed back in her constituency to revive the tattered remains of her day by helping to solve those domestic problems, perhaps after consulting Beijing on the best methods to use.
