It's almost certain that the two countries will work something out. Ultimately, their symbiotic ties will require both to honor each others legitimate interests. The vast amount of trade and money involved will force their capitalist leaders and stake holders to make pragmatic policy choices.

collect your 50cents, "2cents" . Nothing could be further from the truth. USA has just confirmed that weapon sales to Taiwan will go ahead. and that it will never be up for discussion with your filthy commie mates.
China will be marginalised by her own neighbours and kindred because of her aggressive and primitive behaviour and the TPP will only help this.
USA has begun her move back to Asia, and about time too. The cowardly Commies time is up.
USA joint exercises with the commies is just "get to know your enemy" exercise

Your blind hatred prevents you from realizing that China is a capitalist country even when its already the largest trading nation on the planet. This mistaken basic premise makes your arguments completely unpersuasive. Sure, we sell expired arms to Taiwan. Sure, joint military exercise have multiple purposes. But none of this changes the fact that any clash between China and us will result in our mutually assured economic destruction. At the end of the day, the majority of the economic elite in all the countries involved are making too much money from trading with China to let a few war mongers destroy their prosperity. Corporations may have domiciles but their only loyalty is to the bottom line which is exactly what their international shareholders rightfully expect and deserve.
