This could happen to almost anyone, but being who she is does make it interesting.

Taiwan's president stopped in LA on her way to visit other countries. Met with US officials and gave a speech.

Kinda nice she is very defiant in the face of China. I don't know how well things will go without international support though. With China throwing it's weight around, not many places support Taiwan.

This is unfortunate but they are literally a paper tiger. Their capabilities are significantly lower than ours.
US on the left, China on the right.

I saw that. But in reality, it's old news. They've also been attempting to deploy a hypersonic missile, and another missile that takes a ballistic path. Very provocative and destabilizing weapons. How do you differentiate between a ballistic anti ship missile and a nuclear ballistic missile?

Absolutely right, no contest at the moment, though I'd say they'd still give the US a bloody nose.
But with each increasing day, they are ramping up their military at a rapid pace.

But the Pentagon shouldn't be worried about a direct comparison.
I reckon that should there be a conflict, it would take place in the form of a proxy war, much like how the Cold War was with the USSR.
Beijing has been forging some pretty strong economic and soon-to-be political alliances in Africa and other third-world countries and me thinks that this is for long-term strategic gain.
They've been trying to break through what's called the First Island Chain (basically a "wall" of US allies) through circumventing their influence and power to places like Pakistan and the aforementioned Africa.
The South China Sea issue seems to be directly related to this desire to break free the strategically suffocating First Island Chain.

Old news for sure but Xi seems to be a man who knows what he wants, and it seems that he has a certain vision for projecting influence and power (albeit "peacefully"). They say "peacefully" because they won't be the first one to fire the gun, but that doesn't mean they won't/can't be provocative.
