Yes. I fully agree with you on the part of a peaceful reunification and I hope that will be the final outcome.Peaceful unification is not agaisnt Japan's policy. Only a forceful is.
The end result will depends on Tsai of DPP. If she declared Independence tomorrow, the only scenario will be a forceful military reunification by PRC as it is compelled to act as stated in its anti-secessionist law.
Hence US action today is in fact charting a very dangerous course for Taiwan.
Let hope Tsai is not that silly and destroyed Taiwan in the process.
IMO USA may be silly but not that silly to get directly involved in any confrontation with China.
