I think they will have to eventually accept a Hong Kong type arrangement. One country two systems. Another Pacific war would be disastrous for all concerned.

To be honest, is there any other way out for Taiwan except for reunification? Communism IS NOT the reason why almost everybody in China claims that "Taiwan is part of China". Democratic or not, the government on the mainland would lose all support from its people if it just let Taiwan separatists get their way like that. Worse still, there might be a war starting right now if it were not for the Communist Party to constrain people's desire to reunify. China has lost too many territories to foreign powers during the last decade, so it is very unlikely that the Mainland would wanna lose Taiwan.

Taiwanese are stupid to claim they are "the republic of China". Thus China shrewdly claims Taiwan is part of China. It has to be Republic of Taiwan. Not China.
