Reality is Taiwan is under the protection of the US, if China attacks, it is attacking the US and therefore NATO.
For those who wonder why China is doing this now, that is because China saw that nobody did anything for Hong Kong or Tibet or the Uyghurs so it assumed that the same will happen for Taiwan so she has eyed a window of opportunity to snatch Taiwan.
China is testing and determination is required to deter her from declaring war on the world.
Appeasement only emboldens dictators and brings the cause of war closer.
China is busting a move for having satellite nations. She will continue to do her 'reacquisition' of her stolen (that is how they view it) ex parts of her old Empire. The USA has handed the PRC a playbook on what is necessary to expand and conquer. Get a hold of little islands and small places, subjugate them and then place eventually military installations on them so you can be the major force in the world.
They are studying what they can do and how to do it in a way that is less controversial than the American way of doing it.
In the end? The USA did engage in 93 agressions and it is a horrible Empire. China has studied the playbook. That is why they are actively either constructing tiny island stations all over the world, lending the resource rich nations with young people, marriage age women in abundance, and cheap labor countries. They will continue to do this.
The only way to stop them Noemon? Is for the USA to stop spending money on these dumb wars, invest in its own people and stop being a captive market for the PRC's products. But since capitalism and profit and consumption are its cornerstone principles and talking about motivations outside of a profit margin is anathema to the USA's elite? It is highly unlikely to happen.
