Don't want to drive this too far away from the topic "Putin Is Doing It" so please forgive the digression. I think the mainland could simply siege them out. Just make a ring around it far enough away. That would mean the ROC (or US/AUS) govt would have to actually fire the first shot or the ROC would just surrender. If they shoot at the blockade, the PRC could just toast the coastal defenses as retaliation, if they surrendered, joyous reunification could happen.
