Kenya may be about to lose some major infrastructure assets.The issue is greater than Taiwan. The PRC regards Tibet & Hong Kong, along with Taiwan as rebel provinces which have to be returned. There is also the Second Island Chain, which stops at the western tip of Irian Jaya. Drop a line directly south & where do you end up. (That's funny, last time I looked there was a Chinese lease on the port, the only major port that links the Indian/Pacific). Also, given the PRCs' propensity for debt trap diplomacy, the island nations of the entire western Pacific have to not fall into this piece of economic entrapment, or those that haven't already.
I don’t think “the world” would do anything without the US. If the US doesn’t act, no one else has the capability + will to do anything other than make strongly worded statements.I think if China was to surround and quarantine the island the whole world would lash out. I don't think China would do that. The economic sanctions alone would cripple their economy to the point that they would resemble the 1800s. I also think at that point some non -Chinese subs in the strait would be engaging in target practice.

It's a brilliant example of the holes in China's economy and control. It goes to show that even though China owns this piece of land, the people don't see themselves as under the PRCs rule. This is a good example of how the takeover of Taiwan would pan out, post China's takeover of Taiwan.If everyone can tear themselves away from their cigars & etc., what's happening in Hong Kong is brilliant, if you'd care to notice. The Hong Kongers are serving it up to the PRC in spades, this is even better than the Umbrella Revolution.
