I'd be shitting bricks.

China isn't going to take Taiwan militarily. But I can see them arranging the world around Taiwan such that annexing them and turning them into a Hong Kong/Macau special economic zone is the only viable way forward. I don't know near enough about the conflict but I know their president has been in office since May and I wonder if China makes a big show about "amnesty" and "acceptance" and the "New Middle Kingdom", might they be able to take it back?

Trump ain't gonna do shit and anybody after is gonna be too late.
