What happened recently in Crimea and Ukraine would resonate with Taiwan and with Washington as well in terms of possible future cross-strait scenarios, Tkacik said.

China could perhaps learn from Russia and decide that the way for peaceful unification is to simply take over Taiwan and give its people a meaningless referendum with just two similar options, he said.
