How will he fight the Communist China with 3,134,000+ soldiers and is less than 100 miles away from their goal target. Vs. US 1,832,000 8,000 miles away?

Logistically right now the Biden Coup/LSD's has overspent the USA by $34 Trillion. The LSD's can't even feed its own population, let alone fight WW-III?

#2 ...this is for you. In the end when dealing with certain people, you can run, but you can not hide.

#6 #4, I saw that on the TV at the gym this morning.

Maybe they should just hire Emily Litella as the press secretary.

#7 I am so confused.

PBS - Taiwan left out of Biden’s new Indo-Pacific pact

#8 Not that simple NN2N1.

100 miles of a very rough strait. The Chinese would need nearly all of their 2 million man army to fully conquer Taiwan. They only have the transport capability to put 30,000 on the island. That is just men, no tanks, APCs, supplies, SAMs, etc. So with everything they need they can only dump maybe a mechanized battalion per trip.

Not to mention that the buildup would be noticed 60 days before the invasion, Taiwan would call its reserves, more weapons would be sent, the few beaches that can be landed on would be fortified to hell and back and the ports mined. Not to mention the invasion has to happen in April or October. Only really times that the weather and sea is guaranteed to be cooperative.

I think China uses Taiwan as a quick way to boost popularity, but would only seriously consider an invasion if they had no other choice to keep face, aka the US recognize Taiwan as independent and put soldiers on it.

Just remember all the crap of the last twenty years, unlike other places Taiwan is a long established democracy. Probably far more of a democracy than we are.
