    I'm saying a second term which was predicted soon after he was elected and this has firmed for me from this weeks developments.

    Six "hands" have gone up to challenge POTUS and all are woman and "Pocahontas" is one of them :rolleyes: maybe 1/1006th part north American indian o_O she should consider being a stand up comedian :D

    So I say President Trump 2.0 for me.

    China has no reason to invade the US. But historically, North Korea and North Vietnam had been part of the Chinese empire though.

    Yes they do if they see a threat from USA.

    When Chinese Navy amphibious capacity get better, I can see China not annexing Taiwan.
    If USA backs down all good, if they try to interfere well than all bets are off.

    China has the capability right now to crush Taiwain if they so chose it.

    also they wouldnt be "annexing" Taiwan

    CHina thinks Taiwan is part of China allready and most of the world allready recognises this fact

    I don't think they're worried about the repurcussions from Taiwan.

    Youre correct Taiwan is China.

    But today if Chinese navy attempted to take back Taiwan they would be spanked by the rebels, without much help from US.

    Do the same invasion in 50 years with 20 aircraft carriers, 100 cruisers, 1000s destroyers and 10,000 amphibious landers.

    How do you envisage China do that?

    Think it through how would China send troops to Taiwan, in cargo ships and frerries and cargo tankers without getting torpedoed?

    How would Chinese navy defend their naval ships from aerial attack?

    Does China even have a 20 fighters that can fly to Taiwan and fight over Taiwan for 30 minutes at the moment?

    Ie How many Chinese made or Russian bought fighters can fly to Taiwan dog fights for 5 minutes and make it back to mainland China without running out of fuel?

    Does China have aerial refueling?

    Does Chinese navy have the 30 ships that can even make it Taiwan?

    And you think China can invade Taiwan today?

    Don’t get me wrong if China wanted to Use nuclear ICBM they can wipe out Taiwan potentially they can potentially mutually wipe out USA but that’s a different strategy.

    lol areial refuelling -- your joking right -- you lost all credibility once you said this wouldnt even be a consideration when china takes over taiwain maybe you need to geography more

    and yes I think China could invade today and take the entire island in under a day -- without the use of Nukes

    its not making sense, cos people who comment does not understand the situations
    before the Korean talks a lot of consideration about the north using nuke to attack the south, but it is not the reality
    civil wars have never been civil, it is just referring to civilians warring one another (we call them non army combatants today)
    the reality is never owe a Chinese debt and not paying it, they will kill you for the default
    if a debt re-set is in your mind about not paying the debt, then you must be brain dead, as in head not connected to the body :)
    wars have been fought for much less

    Although unlikely, I won't rule it out 100% either. It may seem like suicide, but Pearl Harbor was a suicide mission too. It's difficult to think when yoiu head is in the clouds.

    Pearl Harbor was pushed to the Japanese as a challenge, if you are the most powerful why not try dropping bombs there???
    the General took it up, but the planning was cracked by the US, and the attacked was expected.
    hence only junks were destroyed, it was made to look like the US did not know this
    3000 lives of soldiers were lost, remember 911 also claimed similar numbers
    were there red moons too, you bet
    its like a reason was sought for the live test of big boys to proof the ruler of the world
    its all in the planning

    I wouldn't underestimate the Taiwanese. They have a reason to fight (to defend their democracy) while the Chinese soldiers got no reason at all.

    Why North Korea doesn't invade South Korea? Because most of their soldiers will defect if they cross over to the other side.

    The Chinese military does not have a single officer with battle experience. No admirals or ships officers who have ever fought a naval battle. No pilots who have ever been shot at. Their entire officer class are just people in impressive uniforms with no job experience.

    The USA has a military that for all of it’s current issues has a long history of fighting in hot wars and it has a deep well of knowledge and experience in dealing with little islands in the Pacific region and it’s senior brass have direct experience in dealing with the ever shifting chaos of an actual war theatre. The US military knows how to kill and knows how to deal with an enemy that is trying to kill them.

    China may have some few technological advantages currently but their land based military is useless as it can’t be deployed and it’s real purpose isn’t to fight foreign wars, it is designed to keep the Chinese population in line for the Party.

    So that leaves the Chinese navy and Air Force. They may have shiny copies of American and British uniforms and shiny copies of American command structures and equipment (cultural appropriation anyone?) but that’s all they have and if it did come down to a hot war with the USA just watch how quickly political divisions in the US are set aside and the business of genuine battle begins. Even in its present state the US military is formidable.

    I was standing outside Trump Tower in New York about half an hour ago and took this pic. Its probably not much to do with how much longer Trump may last or not but im here and he has plenty of fire power on the streets. Security is everywhere with big guns,big police and plenty of Secret Service members
