As policy expert Oriana Skylar Mastro adeptly outlines in this cogent article, the likelihood of a Chinese military incursion into Taiwan is growing. She notes how Chinese public opinion strongly favors reunification and that, as the Chinese economy has grown and increased the world’s dependence on it, few nations would be willing to scupper economic ties in favor of Taiwan. She also details how the United States can best handle the looming tensions. Students of geopolitics will find her conclusions compelling.
