    China and Taiwan

    How many of you out there believe we should support an independent Taiwan, and what level of commitment do you think we should have?

    How many of you out there believe we should let China and Taiwan hash this out on their own, even if it means an eventual war between them?

    I can't say I really even begin to understand the problem.... I wonder though if China is really an ally or just another issue waiting to happen in the future. For those who have been or live in China, what is your perspective. What do they or you feel about individual freedom? What really happened in Tinnaman Square (sp)? I know some of the history on Tiawan and China, but....

        China is an interesting topic. They have the potential to become the strongest economic power in the world. But, if and when that happens, how will having all of that wealth effect the populace? Will it push them to strive for more freedom?

          Yes, it is. But, how long they will maintain that independence depends on how bad China wants them back under their control. So the question becomes, to what level will we support their independence.

            We, the US that is, are under a commitment to support them militarily if they are attacked. Could be wrong, but I think we are....

              I believe that you are correct, that is our current policy. But policy often has little to do with the beliefs of the American people. And sometimes, policy is even ignored.

                  & Yeah to most of the world Taiwan IS indeed independent, but, for example, to the Olympic Committee they aren't (feel free to check that one, they are called 'Chinese Taipei' there).

                  ANNNNDDDD... There are a zillion complicated manners in this, like in everything. There, for example. used to be a taiwanese language... but they can't speak it anymore after the non-communistic chinese moved there ;).... ->

                    Not very I think.... We are really talk about a war with China, and that is truely an ugly proposition. The US has fought them in both Korea and Vietnam, and it was hard fighting. Why is Tiawan pushing the point about Chinese missles now! They know that the US is stretched to the breaking point, and it just forces the administration to react disjointedly....

                        It is indeed a tough call. A war with China would be a devistating affair, to be sure. I think the issue will continue to raise its head for some time to come. One can only hope that a match is not dropped into that powder keg.

                          China and the US wipe each other out.... Canada survives (they are used to nuclear winter) North America breaksdown into feudel lands... Ronin revives The Samuria tradition.... Ronin this works in your favor..

                            America = In several messes right now.



                            The problem is the dumbass government of China won't recognise Taiwan's independence.
                            I should ask my parents about this, I'd like to hear their opinion.
