I would like to think that the US would stand up the China over Taiwan but I honestly dont see that happening. I think that the US would slap a few embargos against them, mabye ban them from importing finger cuffs and funny looking hats. The UN would do nothing except condem the action. What I woul dlike to see happen is for the US to defend Taiwan or atleast give them supplies to defend themselves. I would want the UN to put a total trade embargo against China on all imports and exports. Of course a resource starved China would probably quickly move to seize any kind of reseources they could (oil). More than likly ww3/4/5 if the UN puts a embargo on China. However since that wont happen we will probably do nothing or very little so not to hurt our dependance on their crappy made goods.

The 7th Fleet would be bombarding Chinese beachheads and providing CAS to the Taiwanese ground forces.

The point, of course, is that China would never be able to mount a full scale invasion without the US noticing the buildup and moving the 7th Fleet into position. China could put together some kind of airborne assault coupled with a SRBM barrage, but I doubt they would attempt that without heavy assets to hold the positions.

Yep.

The Chinese do not have a strong enough amphibious capability to take Taiwan.

Barrage the crap out of it? - Yes.
Take it and hold it? - No.

The Democrats will says it's Bush's fault, and will then stick their heads in the sand.

It'll be peace at all costs.

There would be a world of hurt coming down on China.

The only way they *might* be able to avoid our wrath is by a complete and total surprise invasion to where we would have to oust China from Taiwan. Even then I think the PLAN and PLAAF would have to buy some new hardware.
