Sen. Ed Markey and other Democrats visited Taiwan last week after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi caused a stir. If Americans want to show that the trips were more than just photo ops, they will return from recess with a determination to do much more to help Taipei and the region resist Chinese hegemony.
The Democrats like to denounce China from afar for abusing the Uyghurs and for faltering Hong Kong’s autonomy. The trips to Taiwan are useful demonstrations of American support. But are MPs willing to spend real political capital at home to support Taiwan and send a message to China that really matters?
