Chinas not stupied.if they want to take the island,they would play it like chess.they would hit so hard and fast by the time we would react the flag would be flying in the capital city.sure nukes will stop anyone,just dont under estamate the numbers of troops and how there children are made to hate and destroy the west from birth!:

tshank hit fast and hard?
Their objective is to take the island and reunite the mainland with he island not to destroy it.
They would still have to mass their forces near the border I don't care if they air drop them or land them by way of an amphibious assault their forces getting ready would be noticed by satellites. Not to mention they wont even attack unit Taiwan declares independence.

India playing hop-scotch with allies..

India's non-aligned in the true sense of the word..
Or aligned with everyone even!!
We that most of India's old friends and new acquiantances are not to found of each other themselves..

There's Russia and more recently US, China, and Japan...
US with all its defence overtures as mentioned in the artilce quoted above.

China and India are involved in a patch-up process of sorts..
Presidential visits..Border resolutions.. economic ties..

And mostly recently, Infact in today's TOI.. Koizumi quoted on his state visit of India.. "I want to strongly emphasis that India has Japan as a friend in Asia"

My my.. doesn't India have an interesting friends circle here..
Almost like a soap opera!!

WE have Russia

Triangle diplomacy only works if the Chinese-Indian relationship deterioates quite significantly. This is unlikely to happen in the near future.

This old topic is so long-lived !It's no easy to get Taiwan back .It will take a long time .I think your assumptions are quite enough,too many is non-sense.

Time is on China's side. War won't ever happen in the strait. Its only a matter of time that Taiwan gets assimilated through political and economic terms. China would open the gate for imports and exports to and from Taiwan, they'll be addicted on the "China" drug and soon, half their economy would be dependant on China with a majority government thats pro re-integration.

But will the Chinese ever alow the PLAN to station ship there?

PLAN wants dominance in the west pacific and Taiwan is a thorn in it's side

edit: they supply north korea with 70% of its food supply i heard

If North Korea does test a nuke I will not be supprised if China simply stops food and oil shipments into the country.

China does not want a nuclear korean peninsula as much as the next country.

IN fact the chinese admitted they don't trust the north koreans either. They are merely "tolerated", as a sort of buffer between US forces in south korea and the border.

However considering South Korea and China's increasing closeness and their opposition to japan's claims to gas and oil fields I can see China might feel more comfortable with a united, stable korea than the present situation

I don't know, I personally prefer China to liberate DPRK so that the nuclear threat is removed but the land area is not occupied by Americans. With good planning, CHina could have DPRK in a week, its a small country especially if you put large amounts of troops and tech in there. DPRK barely has any air support and its navy is a shame, cruise/ballistic missile their nuclear facilities and Kim's palace then the problem would be gone.

i dont think its in China's global interest to fortify their global image as a communist state - via the military occupation of North Korea.

Im sure a few more carrier groups will be deployed to the region if such an irrational and militaristic state rears its head.

American/western world deployment is defensive and dependent on hedging against future deployment. Any state has to remember its more about expectaions and threats than actual actions. The US rationally maintains a proactive self defense policy - post pearl harbout.....9/11......

[insert next kick in the arse/moment of weakness]

Speak softly but carry a big stick.

I'm sure America doesn't want to see DPRK into China's hands but China doesn't want to see DPRK in America's hands either.

China is no longer communist like in the 70s. China now is only communist by name but it is really capitalist by heart. We prefer to call ourselves "Socialists".

It is the constant a$$ kicking that America does around the world that makes millions more people hate America every year. It is only a matter of time until some big anti-america thing happens around the world. Say 2 decades of more American a$$ kicking and a object of ignition then you have WWIII on your hands.

Anti-American sentiment is self destructive - where would China be without America.

Its self defeating considering the downfall of america and the crowning of China as a global culture and innovation leader.
