Well. It certainly has our attention to the point of the marines restructuring their entire makeup. They are dropping tanks and going to what they used to be, an amphibious force. Been a while since I saw that story so I don't know the details.

What I do know is Xi isn't fucking around and their military buildup isn't for show. How far they're willing to take it is a question that we will see answered in the next 5 to 10 years.

What I will never understand is why they have such a hard on for Taiwan. The commies won the war and exiled the nationalist to a small island that posesno threat. Itd be like had the Civil War been fought with Hawaii as a state and we kick the confederates there. Its over

After 80 years? Assuming immediate invasion would have been impossible?
yes

took em 100 years but they got Hong Kong back too,eh?

BOTH sides view it as simply PART of the 'chinese state'

They just disagree who REPRESENTS the 'chinese state',eh?

Thats to say the Taiwan government claims all of mainland china in the same way china refuses to recognize the Taiwanese government or state..........

they got hong kong back because the lease ran out.

taiwan's gov is far from perfect(especially in the early days of the nation) but it's pretty fucking obvious which side is worse.
