You can find a counterpoint here , where Professor Amitai Etzioni argues that the U.S. should not risk an all-out war with China over Taiwan. How should the US respond in the event of a Chinese invasion of Taiwan? The answer to this question is often presumed to be the same as if an adversary were to invade NATO, Japan or South Korea, in which case the United States would respond promptly and forcefully to repel the adversary.
