    If there is any truth to this story, it could very well play out sooner than later.

    It's interesting that this pre-dates the PRC. If the Nationalists were to reclaim the mainland, the controversy would continue, as it was originally promulgated by them as the "11 dash line" in 1947. It's all about the resources. whether you're talking Peking or Taipei.

    I think China is testing their own boldness and also the US Navy's resolve.

    I doubt they would launch an attack before Hillary takes over though.

    Maybe so.

    But they also want Taiwan back.

    China's air force can quickly and easily sink the American Navy in the Pacific -- or so my friends who are pilots in the Navy have told me.

    You lie. No one in the Navy told you that.
