A discouraging bit of information

Someone at the Interpreter looks at the military capacity of China to stage an invasion of Taiwan, and makes this observation:
....the Chinese are doing the necessary training and planning needed to master amphibious operations. President Xi Jinping told the PLA to prepare to take on Taiwan by 2020, and it is doing so.
I can't imagine the sort of international turmoil an attempted forced takeover of Taiwan would entail.

Cannot see it occurring.
1) would be very costly in terms of resources
2) USA would have a number of destroyers, aircraft carriers etc around
3) China not ready to figt USA yet
4) Nothing in it for China given all the costs
