Oh it could be both your right. But what’s driving this action now. If is just a strategic play which leaves me to believe they won’t do something risky. They have a decided upon goal which would likely be limited to a few specific things.Why not both?
I concur.I really can't see China handling so many war fronts at the same time, I think they are more concerned with getting Taiwan back than of the other fronts. Looks more like waving the left hand for attention while the right hand does the snatch and grab.
I don't know if I agree with this or not. I believe it would be possible for China to conduct an invasion of Taiwan in such a way that destruction is limited to military and government targets, not manufacturing and production.I disagree about China. Taiwan is a matter of national pride but little economic gain because much of it would be destroyed. Land acquisition to the west for belt & road plus water resources are economic drivers China wants badly.
For China to successfully seize Taiwan they would have to rely on the west completely folding. And in the last six months the west has been more vocal in support and resources than the last decade. Covid and Hong Kong has woken up a large portion of the world.
