    I imagine China must be doing some cost-benefit analysis right now, and it's hard to picture someone like you among them saying, "Let's do it!"

      I anticipate China is going to attack Tiawan! Only the Tiawanese are going to fight back. The Brandonistas are broke, out of gas, and have sent everything the US has to Ukranine and Afganistan. The cost benifit analysis says go for it. ChiComs got the world's industries under their control. The supply of rare Earth's, and the Russian oil market headed their way at a discount. Tiawan has to make conquest super expensive.

      Let's GO Brandon!!!!

        ChiComs aren't paying any attention to the Brandonistas Green Nude Eel, or anything else that upsets the white guilt that motivates the Davos set. If the West is giving away economic superiority, the ChiComs will grasp it with both hands. Coal, Russian energy, nuclear power everything is coming up roses for them. They would be smarter to just grow more powerful without taking the bloody nose Tiawan can give them, but Brandon will get weaker every day. Good things come to he who waits.

        Let's GO Brandon!!!

          Are you picturing a Normandy style invasion?
          After all, unlike Ukraine, Taiwan is an island.

            Te distance an invasion fleet would need to travel before it even gets to the island is daunting. The Taiwan Strait is 128km (79.5 miles) at its narrowest point between mainland China and Taiwan and much wider if embarkation ports where an invasion force would gather are to be considered.
            The US has pledged it would robustly come to its aid if attacked by China. Significant US assets are based on Okinawa, one of Japan’s southernmost islands, for just this purpose. Fighter squadrons from the US Air Force would be able to reach Taiwan in under an hour, leaving the PLA with very little time to inflict a knockout blow on the island.

              The mighty US of A swore a mighty oath to protect Ukraine as long as the wind blows. As long as the water flows in the river. As long as the sky is blue! Barack Obama didn't do doodly squat! Obama removed missile defence in Poland to kow tow to Putin. Tiawan would be fools to believe that Brandon wouldn't rather take another bribe from the ChiComs than come to the aid of their country. The ChiComs are probably trying to decide between invading Russia or Tiawan. The way things are going the ChiComs can probably buy Western Russia, without needing to invade anybody!!!!

                  Has the US Senate authorized a Treaty between Tiawan and the US? I'd say it's absurd to expect kow tow Joe and his Brandonistas to do anything. Ask Poland and Ukraine about the word of Democrats in preserving freedom around the world. Ask the Afgan women in their Burkas, ask the Ukrainians abandoned by Obama/Biden? The Brandonistas don't even have the intestinal fortitude to allow the production of energy in the USA. No jobs for Americans, just lies, inflation, stolen elections, and Russian hoaxes.

                    "Twice in recent months President Biden has publicly affirmed a U.S. commitment to defend Taiwan should China attack. Both times, the White House walked his comments back, admitting that no such formal obligation exists.

                    "While the media was quick to pounce on Biden’s “gaffes,” it’s likely that the Chinese received his message loud and clear: America has Taiwan’s back."

                      Hunter's dad says Hunter didn't make any ChiCom money too! That's a lie. Tiawan best prepare itself. Brandon's word isn't worth the powder to blow it to hell! The whole world knows it too!
                      Is there a letter signed by 50 Intelligence Experts swearing he means it this time?????

                        I think the Chinese know they can't afford to take the chance on betting against a repeat of the Ukraine experiment.
                        I don't hear anyone in the Chinese inner circle saying, "Let's slip our old friend Hunter a couple of bucks and invade Taiwan."
                        But you do.
                        Let's just wait and see, but don't hold your breath.

                          Brandon is always up for another lie. He's a Democrat. That's what they are. That's what they do.

                            I'm proud to be a Republican, whose party members always tell the truth.
                            Take Donald Trump. He said he graduated Wharton at the top of his class.
                            I believe him, regardless of what the commencement program says.
                            They listed the names of the honors students, and I'm sure any omissions were unintentional:-))

                              Trump's policies are the issue, not his standing in his college class! Trump put Americans first, not the bloated parasite of the alphabet agencies! Trump's policies of deregulation, energy dominance, FREEDOM for CITIZENS, not illegals and criminals were a breath of fresh air. Trump and Reagan are the only Presidents in my lifetime who have dismissed the priorities of the government, for the priorities of American citizens. The Brandonistas are trash. They elevate illegals, criminals, and most assuredly, government agencies above the smelly Walmart American citizens. It is deeds not words Snowhole! Mean tweets are a sideshow, Putin not invading is a FACT, Jack!!!

                                Speaking of Trump's policies,


                                Trump took Russia's side when the conflict began


                                A popular revolution in 2014 ousted the pro-Russia regime in Kyiv, which was led by President Viktor Yanukovych, and replaced it with a Western-leaning government. Russian troops soon invaded the Ukrainian territory of Crimea, initiating the armed conflict that escalated this year.

                                https://www.cnn.com/2022/03/26/polit...ine/index.html


                                Within weeks, Trump praised Putin for how he handled the takeover of Crimea and predicted that "the rest of Ukraine will fall ... fairly quickly." Echoing Kremlin propaganda, Trump said in a TV interview that the Crimean people "would rather be with Russia," a position he also pushed in private. One of his 2016 campaign aides falsely claimed that "Russia did not seize Crimea."

                                "Trump said that Crimea is Russian, because people speak Russian," said Elena Petukhova of Molfar, a Kyiv-based business intelligence firm, who called it an "absolutely pro-Kremlin" view. "According to this logic, the entire territory of the United States should belong to Great Britain."
