Would Taiwan unite with China if the US went to war with China or would Taiwan take the chance to attack China?

I think Taiwan would unite with China and go against the US because being China and Japan are the most economically beneficial in Asia, they would not want China to get corrupted. Everyone would take advantage of the Asia market plummet and Taiwan would never really gain close to their own independance. (Agree or disagree? lol)

Considering that the Taiwan situation has the highest probability of starting a conflict between the US and China - then the chances of Taiwan siding with China in such a conflict are just not valid.

well, there's always the possibility of civil war in Taiwan if Taiwan declares independence.

You know, about half the people there dont want TI and they might fight for it. This is a pretty serious issue. Imagin if when US decalred independence, half the colonies didnt want it, then there might have been a war between the colonies. Same thing with Taiwan right now.

China would be smart to wait a bit if and when Taiwan declares independence.

Taiwan will do everything possible to avoid millitary conflict if it feels that it will not recieve millitary aid from the US.

Even if it did, I doubt it would pre-emptively attack the mainland directly unless war was inevitable...
