Who said anything about the ChiComs "fearing" the ROC? Certainly not I!
But, yes, the Chinese simply lack the ability to project force across the
waters to attack Taiwan, while the ROC possesses adequate resources to land
its military forces on the MUCH longer mainland coast. The ROC believes
that there would be a popular uprising if it landed; the PRC is evidently
concerned about this but feels that it could, by Tianamen-Square
ruthlessness, suppress such.
