    Well, as long as Democrats are running the show, they better not look to the US for help.

    This smells like an attempt to secure additional weaponry and support. If China were to launch a sortie against Taiwan it would be repulsed, and an all-out attack would win the battle but lose the war as the rest of the region responded.

    I suppose we could supply Taiwan with nuclear weapons, but short of that I can’t imagine there is much the West can do militarily to help Taiwan defend itself against a Chinese takeover, if that is what China’s communist party leadership decides (for whatever reason) that it wants to do. We should make it clear that China would no longer have most favored nation status as a member of the WTO however if she ceases to abide by the norms of civilized behavior. But for that we would need a Parliament of Nations.
