Taiwan and the United States
British defense analyst Paul Beaver told The Sun: “The situation can become very dangerous. When it kicks off in Taiwan, Ukraine will look like a tea party.
“We have to hope that common sense will prevail because the stakes are just too high.
“The Chinese have the obvious advantage of proximity and large numbers, but at worst it would be quality rather than quantity of hardware that would count.
“And the Americans have the ability to deliver that from their Japanese bases in Yokohama and Okinawa.
“But it will be the economic pressures that will keep their hands off the triggers on both sides should it escalate.
“The cost of global trade would be simply incalculable and could impact everyone’s lives at a time when markets are already reeling.
“The hope is that this pressure will be enough to prevent the unthinkable from becoming possible.”
