only business or commercial wars might arise. taiwan is one of the big money sources and incomes of the u.s.a. to dump those retired outdated useless military leftover to taiwan, getting more jobs and employments for american labors. america would never have the real interest to solve taiwan problem with china. just like to establish an israel in the muslim world, supporting a puppet-like taiwan to tease and embarrass china in the far east is also a formulated u.s. government foreign policy. now, most the taiwanese business and businessmen are doing business in china, only the taiwan government is still struggling to deny that fact that taiwan needs china more than china needs taiwan. the gesture between or among these three entities are nothing but for commercial purposes. the longer the taiwan factor exists, the more the profit would be generated to american government and its military manufacturers. it's a gold mine that america would never let go; a hanging sword over the head of the communist china but also a bargain chip to keep the communication door open to each other. the problem would never solved and will never reach 'all the chips are down. it's showdown time.' not in yours or mine lifetime would happen. so give it a rest and don't try to cash in with such dilemma by publishing a book.
