The tension between China and Taiwan has been increasingly heightening for the past decade. Increasingly more frequent Chinese navy exercises off the coast of Taiwan and incursion on Taiwanese Air Identification Defense Zone by PLA's jets have buttressed the perception of an imminent Chinese invasion of the island. As clearly explained by @Battle Order the PLAN is more than capable of implementing such a military operation. But is that really the case? In this video, we argue that China has more reason to deter such actions, than proceeding with an actual Invasion against Taiwan.
