It is indeed a good news if you don't want to solve the problem by bloody war.

Seems taiwan people are getting smarter now or willing to face the true reality.

Honestly, why do you feel it necessary to belittle the man? If you disagree with something he does, then great - disagree with that. Keep the political party psycho-babble to a minimum. It just leads to flamewars.
I agree with both of you there.

China will probably attack Taiwan at one point or another.

I don't think the US will want to be involve in the conflict between China and Taiwan (if it happens).. Both are friends of the US and it is difficult for the US to take sides if two of her friends fight each other.

Just like in life we can't help one or the other if both fight and they both are also your friends. The most one can do is to try to counsel or intervene lightly.

The situation is different from North and South Korea as the North is not a friend to the US and any attacks from the North will surely see US massive involvement.

Well duh, look at how the question is phrased, the only option is that somehow China will re-unite with Taiwan, the person who started this never acknowledged the fact that China might never re-unite with Taiwan. "No, China is only interested in using force." what a stupid way to put it, if their were "peaceful" ways to re-unite they would use them, to word it like that is saying that if Taiwan offered peaceful plans to re-unite with China they would be turned down in favor of plans to use force. The only conclusion that can be drawn from this poll is that it was poorly worded.

And about this "US not getting involved BS." Why does everyone think that after China attacks a United States Navy Carrier Battle Group and having to destoy or desable that entire fleet that the US will back down? Hell no, we would mobilize for an all out war just like we have done in the past. Put your self in our shoes, hundreds, if not thousands of your sailors are killed in a surprise attack, what would you do? And last time thousands of our sailors and civilians were killed in a surprise attack we completely destroyed the Japanese ability to make war while also fighting against Germany in the East. The United States now and within the next couple decades will be able to defeat any single nation in a conventional war, and I bet Russia would not just sit by and watch the US and China duke it out, they would likely join on our side and take Manchuria away, like they tried to do in 1945.

There is hardly any reason for the US to send her carrier task force to 'rescue' Taiwan..

The US can be the referee for the fight between China and Taiwan (if it happens).. rather than be involved in the fight between two brothers who are both friends of the US.

Do you really think people who don't agree with you are not as smart?

All I can read from the election result is, Taiwanese decided to give the opposition more power to keep the current ruling party in check. The hasty TI movement that angered China and the US lit a red light for most of the people and they feel threatened, which I must respect since those are the people who live there, and should decide what direction Taiwan should take.

Of course they feel threatened, only not-smart guys don't mind all their properties being destroyed in bloody wars.

Sure we do, China's immediate goal is to re-unite with Taiwan, so long as Taiwan in "independent" China will not look to attack else where.

Yes, lots of noisy diesels. one nuclear powered submarine could take out many diesels, and plus their would be several destroyers in the fleet, and who said we would only use one?
