China has too much to lose by invading Taiwan.

Firstly, the Mega Billion Corporations would face a global boycott. China wants to become a global leader. An unprovoked attack on Taiwan will not allow that.

Secondly, Taiwan is prepared for an invasion. China would suffer tremendous losses

China has publicly threatened America and their citizens. They have spied, poisoned nations and were silent about a virus they unleashed to the world. They have walked into Hong Kong and arrested citizens and pushed domestic laws that go hard against foreigners because they could all be "spies".

You think after all of this, that China is at all afraid of economic consequences? They own the worlds elite and they will continue to use them to take over the world. They sacrificed their own citizens to be used as slave labour, and made many people billionaires. These billionaires don't give a damn about the crocodile until it's too late. They fool Western nations to move there, then steal their IP.

Oh and I almost forgot, did you order your China Olympics sweatshirt yet (made in a sweatshop I'm sure)?
"First they came for the communists..."
Yup

The days of Chinese isolationism are over. They are now controlled by the capitalists
Bullshit. They use capitalism as a means to an end. The CCP rules supreme. If you don't believe it, ask Jack Ma's opinion.

They don't practice 'free trade', and the Cadre are the only 'middle class, with maybe about a 10% few with necessary tech skills, no different than under Mao.

I predicted a massive shift in global influence if Trump lost in 2020. My thinking was that Europe and Asian nations will watch to see if America remains focused on expanding their influence and projecting capitalism, or, if it will become just another socialist nation looking to control their domestic citizens. One of many nations that is incapable of stopping China from doing as it pleases. While U.S corporations and their political pals pretend their greed didn't destroy the U.S

After Hong Kong was taken back so easily, while the Brits were so focused on Russia (and appeasement of them, though they'd never admit this when their intel thought sending missiles to Ukraine was a bad idea) and pushing this narrative in the U.S (much to the pleasure of China), the CCP were expanding and eying how to topple the U.S and Western democracy.

How lucky could they be to see the U.S embroiled in terror in the M.E, then Russia in Crimea, and then an aggressive global effort to usurp the most pro-American president in many peoples lifetime, all while China expanded and laughed?

If Taiwan falls to China, America will go from Super Power to Middle Power almost overnight. Just as Canada went from Middle Power to Little Power in a generation (again, thanks to appeasing of China). The world will be drastically tilted to China and Russia and the new global supremacy. Their influence and outreach will be without limits at that point.

Taiwan Kinmen China

  • China has been expanding its influence and taking a more aggressive posture toward Taiwan.
  • That has raised concerns that Beijing will attempt to retake the island by force.
  • Whether the US and other countries would help, and what help they would offer, remains in doubt.
  • See more stories on Insider's business page.
Twenty-five years ago, two US Navy carrier strike groups were enough to deter possible Chinese military action against Taiwan after China launched missiles that landed a few dozen miles off its coast.
Now, after a massive modernization effort by China's military, known as the People's Liberation Army, or PLA, two carrier strike groups, and possibly US forces alone, may not be enough.
This is especially daunting for Taiwan, as it is unclear if it can get help from anyone else if, or when, the time comes.
In March, Adm. Philip Davidson, then head of US Indo-Pacific Command, told the Senate Armed Services Committee that China could invade Taiwan in the next six years.
A few days later, Adm. John Aquilino, Davidson's successor, declined to comment on that assessment but said that China views Taiwan "as their No. 1 priority" and that, in his opinion, "this problem is much closer to us than most think."
No one is coming to save them
Once they take Taiwan the Pacific theater is wide open

we'll be to busy anyway
No one is coming to save you my frozen brother
And no one is coming to save us

Quoted for truth. It's amazing how that fact fails to sink in.

It probably won't happen with Chinese forces landing on the shore and taking over the capital by force. It will happen after agreements between Biden and China come to pass and one day Taiwanese will wake up to a new regime. The American media will ignore it or justify it because it happened under a democrat administration and nobody will hear the cries of free people who have lost it all.
The US has supported Taiwan for 70 years

It was Trump who continually sold out our alliances

China will not attack Taiwan
Hong Kong was returned to them by the British

Taiwan would kick their asses if they invaded

Lot of ships at the bottom of the ocean
