Well of course if they resorted to nuclear weapons, which I seriously doubt, the world would be destroyed. Not in so much a biblical sense but more a scientific way. Climate shifts and contamination and such.

I don't think ANZUS applies in that scenario. I mean, if China attacks Taiwan and the US says "Let's go get 'em boys!" that's not where ANZUS comes in (and in that scenario, if it took place tomorrow, I think Australia would try and stay out for as long as possible). ANZUS would only apply if China decided to attack unprovoked a US territory or interest or whatever (eg takes out a US Navy ship or something on the way). In which case, I'd suggest ANZUS would be invoked, but that would be the last of our worries and we should all move to the hills rather quickly.

1) Do you believe Taiwan has the right to officially declare its independence from China?

YES 11 votes

NO 2 votes


2) If China attempts to invade Taiwan(regardless of whether Taiwan had declared independence or not), do you support US and international military intervention to stop China?

YES 6 votes

NO 7 votes



Very interesting results so far. Nearly everyone supports Taiwan's right to declare its independence from China, but people are split on whether they support US and international military intervention to stop a Chinese military invasion of Taiwan.

That is what will happen if we (righteously or not) declare war on China.

Mine was a marginal yes, depending if there was enough support worldwide. Because if there wasn't, it would be a definite no.

Sometimes these things are hard to judge by just a yes or no.

Lets get some more votes on these questions here:

1) Do you believe Taiwan has the right to officially declare its independence from China?


2) If China attempts to invade Taiwan(regardless of whether Taiwan had declared independence or not), do you support US and international military intervention to stop China?
