The Bush administration however is extremely careful in its public statements about Taiwan. The administrator's however feel that US should take a more direct role in backing the island state's drive towards Independence. China's main motive to keep Taiwan under their jurisdiction is that it will strengthen China strategically. The Communist Government in Beijing has sworn to all the international nations that whatever power required shall be applied keep the island conquered under them.
The actual conflict arises from The Taiwan relations Act which was established to combat communism and aid in the spread of globalization and capitalism. The Act declares that if any outside Nation attacks Taiwan the US should come to its defense. Since it was made during the Cold War Era and now no such situation prevails, which has fainted much of the active participance with the decline of Cold War.
The China Taiwan Conflict seems to go a long way before any constructive measures are taken on both sides.
