That is true. The chance of China taking Taiwan over peacefullly and/or diplomatically is minuscule. Taiwan's economy is one of the biggest in Asia,
they have the resources to fight the war China for quite a long time. They are now buying weapons from Europe and the US and it is making Taiwan very
difficult for China to invade.
The longer the China waits, the smaller the military gap between the two countries. Taiwan's air force is improved and it is exceeding China's air
force. China's air force is large but dull, while Taiwan's is smaller but more effective due to better early warning system and coordination gotten
from the world.
If i were China, i would attack now. The longer i wait, the more damage would be done on me.
China is not very credible with things it says. They are alll talks, no actions.
China is a paper tiger
