The End Is Near

Not for Taiwan, but for the Chinese communists. Check out the latest "law" that is coming out of the "Chinese Parliament." According to the Chinese functionary holding the title of Foreign Minister "...draft legislation provides for the use of force 'in the event that the Taiwan independence forces should act under any name or by any means to cause the fact of Taiwan's secession from China'".


China is still acting as though it is business as usual in the world but maybe they should look around. The US and Japan have pledged to defend Taiwan in the event of a Chinese attack. And President Bush is now issuing ultimata to dictators, the most intelligent of whom are heeding his wishes. China had better get on board, and find some way to peacefully coexist with Taiwan, without periodically resorting to schoolyard-bully-quality threats. Taiwan now has a protector who is not intimidated by the big Chinese bully.
