China has been building up its navy substantially. If they did go after Taiwan, I think that Taiwan would just sit out there and send wave after wave of anti-ship missiles and anti-aircraft missiles at the invading forces. It could be a real bloodbath. Eventually, Taiwan would run out of missiles and China would just envelope them...

The problem is, I believe most countries in that region would stand by and let it happen. Why piss of the largest/most populated country in the region?

Whether the US and other countries would help remains in doubt?! They shouldn't have any expectation of help. Same with Ukraine.
The Mutual Defense Treaty between the USA and Taiwan was ended by President Carter so obviously Taiwan knows the USA would not defend Taiwan. The US has an “obligation” to supply Taiwan with weapons but that obviously would not prevent them from being taken over.

The supposed US defense of the Ukrainian after we helped convince them to denuclearize (Budapest Memorandum) was proven worthless when Russia annexed the Crimea. No one could think things would be any different when Russia decides to swallow the whole country.

I'm sure our lionhearted president would look into a camera and read a stern sounding pre-prepared statement from a teleprompter about how unacceptable China's behavior was while wagging his finger.
Dementia Joe would mumble his stern warning through his double mask with President Harris cackling in the background.

Jesus H Christ what a nation of idiots the socialist democrats have bred.

Hopefully we have not supplied Taiwan with our latest and most sophisticated weaponry... it could conceivably be in the
hands of the Chinese military at some point.

I remember my nuclear weapon days and there was talk that Taiwan had nukes....a few of those on Beijing and some other places might make it not worthwhile. A Pyrrhic Victory at best for the PRC.

They have had plenty of time to prepare.
