But still, the reason to defend Taiwan is to defend democracy from system where you cannot legally change the status quo except with bloody revolution or civil war. You let PRC take Taiwan, then they would get cocky and take anything else because no one stop them.
I guess you know this Taiwan issue is the result of unfinished Chinese civil war, it's the domestic problem of the Chinese nation, foreign countries should stay out of it.

Sure. *covertly backed Taiwan*
Then it'll be no problem, I guess China is also "covertly" backing some rebel groups in some countries, my personal guess though. and US , Russia and many other countries do this too, the essence of geopolitics.

As China’s recent unprecedented military exercises around Taiwan demonstrated, the Taiwan Strait is a major flashpoint that threatens to undermine regional and global stability. Yet crucial questions remain about the dynamics shaping the Taiwan Strait. What is China’s approach to Taiwan and how long is Beijing willing to wait for Taiwan’s unification? Will China use significant military force against Taiwan, and when? How does Beijing view the potential of U.S. intervention in a Taiwan contingency?

To shed light on these questions, ChinaPower polled 64 leading experts on the People’s Republic of China (PRC), Taiwan, and cross-Strait relations.1 The experts polled include 28 former high-level U.S. government (USG) officials from both Democrat and Republican administrations, as well as 23 former USG policy and intelligence analysts and 13 top experts from academia and think tanks.2 Responses were collected from August 10–September 8, 2022, amid the Fourth Taiwan Strait Crisis.
