  1. The bases that The Chinese have built on these coral reefs and others gives them a great reach with their long range anti-ship missiles,recon and bombers.

    I believe they are going to isolate and take Taiwan and before U.S. or any Ally can get close enough; These Coral reef Bases will have to be neutralized I think.

    Based on what I have read, The U.S. and its Allies may get bogged on in a War on The Korean mainland and at that time China will move against Taiwan and take it.

    Already, The U.S. has had to redeploy ships from The Pacific to meet a raising Russian Submarine Threat in The Atlantic.

    I believe The Korean Peace imitative may have been an honorable deed on the part of our Government, it has given China more time to get ready.

    Taiwan used to be called Formosa.

    Many Chinese escaped with Chiang Kai-shek after The Communist took over after The Civil War.

    China seeks unification.
