In reply to BigJohns comments about creating scenarios between Taiwan and China conflict
- Mainland China, the government is losing mandate for strict control of the provinces after a prolonged depression and a new breed of provincial governments start popular free elections. Needs to recover by promoting nationalist ideas, decides to take on the Taiwan question with a blockade of the island and launching missiles over the island.
Taiwan fights back by mining the entire Taiwan strait. Meanwhile many city residents tell their farmers cousins to start planting extra rice and taro quick!
