I don’t know why the assumption is that China will take Tawain so easily.
How? China is projected to have the largest navy in the world by 2027, possibly more advanced than the US. The US would have to rely on a decisive edge from it's subs.
Taiwan has no chance of fighting against China without assistance. And unlike Russia/Ukraine, China is fully capable of blockading Taiwan from receiving that outside support.
