  1. An old tale from Taiwan:

    During 1958 Taiwan Straight Crisis: Kinmen island came under PRC bombardment, Chiang Kai-Shek sought President Eisenhower's naval escort support, with two US warships flanking a KMT warship in the center.

    Mao Zedong ordered his men: "only allowed to shell Chiang's ship, do not attack US escort"

    KMT ships Mei Le, Tai Sheng, Zhong Hai were sunk, US escorts did not return fire at PRC ships, instead they turn and fled.

    Remaining KMT ships sought support from HQ, Taipei asked: "Where's your ally?" KMT ship answered "What friend no friend? They already fled!"

  2. One point of clarification:
    PRC's claim to Taiwan is based on China's claim to Taiwan, which transcends political parties or ideologies. It was the result of Taiwan's retrocession from Japan to China at the end of WWII. Republic of China (ROC) who took over Taiwan in the name of "China" in 1945, 4 years before the Communists proclaimed PRC in 1949 and reduced ROC-controlled territories to merely Taiwan and some surrounding islands a year later. The actual rationale of its claim is ironically (yet unsurprisingly) identical to the one officially evoked by ROC to justify its current rule over Taiwan. There never exists a "Republic of Taiwan". The Island of Taiwan is still ruled at this very second by the entity "Republic of China", who, even today, constitutionally claims to be the sole legitimate government of all China, including the Mainland, Taiwan and Mongolia. In other words, even according to Taiwan itself, Taiwan is in theory a part of a legally indivisible China, albeit a China defined as ROC instead of PRC.

    Is Ukraine today governed by the entity "Republic of Russia"? Does Ukraine's own constitution defines itself as part of Russia and its government as Russia's own legitimate central government as opposed to the regime in Moscow? Does the UN officially designates Ukraine as "a province of Russia"? (The UN has been consistently designating Taiwan as "a province of China" since 1945. The UN switched recognition of "China" from ROC to PRC in 1971. Its official stance regarding Taiwan being part of China remains unchanged over the past 7 decades.)

    All of these simply highlight the basic point: the Taiwan is INCOMPARABLE to Ukraine, insofar as the sovereign issue is concerned.

  3. The fact is Taiwan has never been an independent country. Taiwan is an island currently governed by Republic of China, Republic of China is a Chinese authority established in 1912 in Nanjing China, Hence, Taiwan is currently part of China. By the way, ROC's constitution defines Taiwan as part of China.

  4. I do believe Democrats and the E.U. AGGRESIVE PROVOKOTATION TOWARDS RUSSIA WILL HAVE CHINA INVADE TAIWAN SOON. COMMUNIST COUNTRIES ARE LOOKING AT THEIR SURVIVAL IF THEY DONT STAND TOGETHER

  5. The US in Iraq and Afghanistan, Russia in Crimea and Ukraine and Israel annexation of Palestine. Sounds like we have all heard this song before. China alone will decide when to take back the province of Taiwan. The UN will grumble as it did in the aforementioned but when you have nukes or allied with nukes a lot might be said but little will be done. China is known for its patience, only Taiwan can decide how much blood will be spread, if any.

  6. USA support Ukraine war,they gave 160 billion so far. 550,000 homless people live on street and most of them are veterans. If government invested the 160 billion on housing, there would be no homelessness in USA . 160 Billion means ~$ 290,000 for every homeless individuals. The problem is government doesn't want to solve the crisis . I can say US governmen hate US people. I have to say this, Because i can't get a word to discribe such thing. Don't forget,5 trillions of dolar is already dumped on Arabian deserts. which is lost $17,000 additional income for each USA families.

  7. I know three things for certain as death, taxes, in trouble. Quoted by the great Marvin Gaye, America can't come back from no nuclear strike your power days is over with. You been running the same cowboy mentality for a while to conquer and divide and then said sanctions you ain't learn nothing from messing with the more you know people yet. It wouldn't rush it bloody jump nose it was the more orientals remember Pearl harbor.
