The frequent threats from Beijing to use force against Taiwan which is viewed as a renegade province and thus needs to be annexed by force if necessary is the most dreaded topic of the region emerging as a potential flashpoint. The US is most likely to respond militarily if Beijing becomes adventurous. Against the lurking threat from Beijing, the opposition with its perceived soft pedalling towards Beijing was a mute spectator to this evolving situation.
