Trump says he loves the blacks. Since his tongue hasn't exploded into flames or a lightning bolt from the heavens hasn't struck him down, it must be true and everyone now has to do what Trump tells them...
That's like asking US to give up Hawaii. Taiwan is historical Chinese territory, an intended civil war, not another nation state that they want to conquer. It also opens the door to deep waters in Pacific to allow boomers free access.In my POV taking taiwan by force is a complete liability to China. US and its allies in the pacific are too strong.
Should think outside of the box, China should give up for other things more valuable.
The future of China is westward belt and road.
Its integration with middle , central asia, europe and africa..
If i were China i would give up Taiwan and in exchange for militarily controlling Myanmar which more.doable than taking taiwan and controlling by force.
Once controlling myanmar China can establish major naval and military base.
Indian strategy of choking off China ship lane through malacca strait through its naval base at Andaman and Nicobar island but Myanamr is close to those island and if China has naval forces it can defeat indian navy there.
Andaman island is too far from indian mainland so if China military at Myanmar wants to capture Andaman island its doable.
If China give up on taiwan and pacific side in exchange for myanmar and indian ocean its strategic vulnerabilities would suddenly disappear.
Just need to think ourside of the box and turn that corner
Flexibility means give up certain historical things if needed.That's like asking US to give up Hawaii. Taiwan is historical Chinese territory, an intended civil war, not another nation state that they want to conquer. It also opens the door to deep waters in Pacific to allow boomers free access.
Myanmar is not Chinese, and never will be. There is no interest from china to conquer anywhere in SEA, not even northern Vietnam, and that was Chinese before too.
US have a long Pacific coast. They took Guam and Hawaii as part of imperial expansion. Russia have access to black Sea, but took crimea because it is historically Russian and not Ukraine's.Flexibility means give up certain historical things if needed.
Russia took Crimea because it needs access to black sea.
If China wants to defend itself at india ocean, controlling myanmar is starting point.
US took hawaii and guam because it need them for naval bases in pacific.
