    China reserves the right to use force , Will China invade Tawain...

    ''China will not rule out using force to bring Taiwan under its control, Xi Jinping has said.
    Beijing reserves “the option to use all necessary measures” to extend its rule to the independent island republic it claims as part of “one China”, the president said in a speech devoted to the issue on Wednesday.
    Tsai Ing-wen, Taiwan’s president, said Mr Xi should use peaceful means to resolve the mainland’s differences with Taiwan and respect its democratic values.

    Mr Xi has made reunification a key policy issue and gave his address on the 40th anniversary of China’s decision to cease artillery bombardment of Taiwanese islands and open up communication.

    Taiwan and China split in a civil war that brought the communists to power on the mainland in 1949. The rival nationalists set up another government on the island which lies about 100 miles off China’s coast.''

    ''Taiwan’s President, Defying Xi Jinping, Calls Unification Offer ‘Impossible’ ''

    ''TAIPEI, Taiwan — President Tsai Ing-wen of Taiwan called on Saturday for domestic and international support of the island’s de facto independence, days after China’s leader, Xi Jinping, warned that unification with China was inevitable.
    “It is impossible for me or, in my view, any responsible politician in Taiwan to accept President Xi Jinping’s recent remarks without betraying the trust and the will of the people of Taiwan,” Ms. Tsai said in a briefing for foreign reporters in Taipei, Taiwan’s capital.
    “We hope the international community will pay attention and combine efforts to speak out on our behalf,” she said.
    Mr. Xi’s speech, his first major address on Taiwan, has given Ms. Tsai a chance to position herself as the young democracy’s defender, both to the outside world and to voters who will decide next year whether she stays in office. Her party was battered in local elections in November, but since Mr. Xi’s address there has been a groundswell of support for her on Taiwan social media and even, to some degree, in publications that tend to oppose her.''

    The use of the word defiance is interesting, as if Tsai Ing , is somehow subordinate and beholden to the Chinese Bully.

    Maybe we can help repair relations with China by invading Taiwan on their behalf.
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.
