Through his friend working in a Shanghai Shipyard, the author learned the opinions that the mainland will not likely to invade Taiwan, whatever Taiwan does.
The friend said, “What does the threats to the China current interests come from? From the east coast or from the west side?”
The friend said that if Taiwan left China, China would not actually lose any current interests since China did not control Taiwan. However, if Tibet or Xinjiang left China, China would have too much to loose.
So the China strategy is seen as to make noises in the east to drag U.S. military attention, while quietly strengthen its military power over the west territory and political influence over the countries border the west side. The author believes his friend's saying were reasonable and consistent with other information.
