Ukraine Has Proven China Can’t Defeat Taiwan

This is not 1945. The United States Armed Forces are not superior at the point of decision and can’t be anymore because of geography. Okinawa is a forward base easily neutralized. Other US bases require aircraft to fly for 2–4 hours to get to Taiwan, meaning China can always have more jets on station. Base image from Google Earth, cartoon amendments mine :P
