There is a very good chance that a Chinese invasion of Taiwan would spill into World War III. China and Russia are in a budding military alliance at the moment. Both nations have a number of geopolitical grievances with the Unites States. As China and Russia have rearmed over the past decade, the US military has found itself less and less capable of defending its allies. If the US State Department does not respond this increase in military capabilities from Russia and China with accommodation, inevitably Russia’s and China’s disputes with the US will be resolved through military force. There is a very good chance that a Chinese invasion of Taiwan could be the catalyst for this war.
