USA will never intervene openly (not to mention military force) in the conflict over Taiwan. Those of you with some knowledge in Economics should know that US is at the moment greatly dependant on China. Last figures I saw showed that China and Japan contribute to 980 billion of the US capital account and US have over a trillion trade deficit (imports-exports). This comes to show that if not for Japan and China, USA will be in great recession, USD will depreciate massively and the (hyper)inflation will be imminent..

I hear though that we Gaurenteed Taiwan's Independence, so we would have to go to war to protect them. Can anyone verify this?
