China is getting too big for their boots but I don't think they will succeed if they try to take on Taiwan.

It's unnecessary conflict, yet again. Just let countries have their independence, instead of trying to take them over and tell them what to do.

It's childish, bullying, dictatorship.

China will do a bit of sabre rattling but that's all they can do because they know the results of starting a war.
The Chinese have a shaky economy and are having a mortgage nightmare so can't afford a war anyway.

What Russia did will be talked about for a hundred years and the Chinese are watching. They are tyrants but they don't want that legacy to stay with them. They should acknowledge Taiwan and be done because the alternative is going to end in too much bloodshed. Not only that but world trade could cease, then where would we be?

What bugs me is that we still give China aid as it is classed as a developing country!
It has a space program for crying out loud and sending rockets to the moon.

Our aid to China is about 90% down on last year apparently but I'm shocked to find we still support them this way.
