Arn't you all forgetting the Cuban Missile Crises?

The U.S never stood back from it.

China will not stand back from it. It will be a game of brinkmanship and China cannot be the one to blink and the leaders know it.

Whatever the Chinese will not risk total annihilation because of one small A island. According to you the Chinese leaders think that the destruction of mainland china is worth Taiwan.

Ok, you convince the U.S admin to put nukes on Taiwan.

Then we will see whos right.

Putting nukes in Taiwan would be enough provocation for the PRC to start the China-Taiwan war before delivery of the nukes take place. Not a good move at all.

The point is Taiwan will probably need no foreign help. If they decide they will make the nuke they will have it probably in 5 years.

r Developed atomic power engineering has been created in the country with the technical assistance of American and Western European states. By the mid-1980's, there were already six nuclear power units with a total capacity of 4,900 megawatts operating in Taiwan. The construction of Taiwan's fourth nuclear power plant will set the stage for the acquisition of an advanced reactor design and digital control technology. Because the nation's first nuclear power plant is approaching its second ten-year license renewal, the focus of research efforts over the next few years will be to prevent the plant from deteriorating and extend the plant service life.

Taiwan nuclear program

The US military is not going to put any nukes on Taiwan because it would make us look bad to the world especially where were trying to convince Crazy Kim and the Mullahs to end their nuke programs.
However I still thin that if Taiwan had nukes China would not attack it.

These type of missiles worry me, stand back and point, fire and sink a carrier.

The Hsiung Feng III is capable of cruising at mach 2.5 and has a range of up to 150 kilometers (90 miles), it said

This missile is really incredible. It doesn't just put a hole in the freighter on one side at the water line. Advance to :40 seconds and watch what this missile does to this LARGE freighter. And the missile has Range Gate Pull Off (RGPO) technology designed to create a phantom target for enemy radar that locks on to the missile.

Then once the missile creates a phantom target, afterward it disappears and forces the enemy radar to switch modes from locked on to search and acquisition wasting valueable time for a missle that travels over Mach 2.

Surprised they have not done it sooner. After all, Taiwan is an island that could at any moment be surrounded by Chinese navy.

a reply to: Taishyou

I was there when the USA purportedly forced Taiwan to stop their own nuke development program.

My thought at the time was . . .

IF there is sufficient will in Taiwan . . . they will develop their own nukes . . . regardless.

I'd actually be surprised if they haven't long ago.

Can you imagine the screechy one . . . her hubby having GIVEN China nuke missile tech . . . evidently for money in personal accounts--a huge act of treason . . . can you imagine her going against China's wishes


She'd happily flush all 20 million Taiwanese down the extermination tubes merely for more money in her bank account.
