After several days of strategic maneuvers by the Taiwanese in an effort to block the United States from acquiring a land border with them, it appears that the United States has finally found a way onto the Korean peninsula. Approximately six hours ago the United States congress proposed South Korea as the nation's new natural enemy. With the proposal set to pass it appears that an American invasion of the last remaining South Korean province of Jeollanam-Do is likely forthcoming. While the United States and South Korea are allies in this conflict against Taiwan, the United States has not been able to push the war further into Taiwanese territory due to South Korea controlling the only region on the peninsula that borders American occupied Northern Taiwan. By having the United States take the buffer region of Jeollanam-Do, they will provide the Americans with a foothold on the peninsula from which they can launch further offensives against the Taiwanese occupied regions of Korea.
Over in Korea, The South Korean congress has recently declared Taiwan as their natural enemy and hold the initiative in that conflict should a battle break out.
If the South Korean forces are able to take back a region from the Taiwanese this would almost certainly result in a speedy conclusion to Taiwan’s presence in Korea. By taking another region the South Koreans will be able to let the Americans take the region of Jeollanam-do without being wiped. Since they won't be wiped out the Koreans will still technically be at war with the United States. This means that the Taiwanese will no longer be able to hide behind South Korean regions since the Americans will now be able to conquer those regions in order to create a path to the rest of the Taiwainese regions.
While this may seem like a huge break in the war, it is important to note that Taiwan still has options available to them that would delay a direct conflict with the United States. Should South Korea fail to secure a second region and the United States end up wiping them with the conquest of Jeollanam-Do, the Taiwanese would still have time to hand a few regions back to South Korea via a resistance war to create a new buffer. While this would require them to give up more territory, it would stall the United States since they would have to go through congress to get another war with South Korea declared in order to move through the next buffer. Regardless as long as the United States is able to hold onto the key region of Jeollanam-Do they will be in good position to wipe Taiwan from North Korea, or at least force them into a prolonged conflict.
