I think Taiwan should definitely become a state of the US if it becomes necessary to defend them from Chinese imperialism.

I think Taiwan should definitely become a state of the US if it becomes necessary to defend them from Chinese imperialism.

So we defend Taiwan from Chinese imperialism with American imperialism? Also, what claim does the U.S. have to Taiwan?

I'd prefer neither option, but if I had to choose, I'd obviously go with the first. At least Taiwan has historically been part of China.


There was a poll (It's an old one, 2003 I believe) that showed if these two options were put to a popular referendum, becoming a US state would win by a 2 to 1 margin or something of that sort. I imagine it's still similar.

It's not "imperialism" if they want to become a state lol.
