AAA,

Chen Shui-Bian is NOT DICTATORS that can do as he pleased at all! PRESIDENT in SEMI-PRESIDENTIAL SYSTEM is simply NOT as POWERFUL as PRESIDENT in PRESIDENTIAL SYSTEM! Of course, DICTATORS such as Chiang Kai-Shek and Mao Ze-Dong can do as THEY pleased!!{roll my eyes}

'Defector' Lin's case taken up by DPP....
http://www.chinapost.com.tw/news/detail.asp...

ARTICLE said, "

Three legislators from the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) yesterday demanded that the government allow a key adviser to leaders in Beijing, who allegedly defected from his ROC military officer post in 1979, to attend his father’s funeral in Taiwan.

Fifty-year-old Justin Yifu Lin, former adviser to the World Bank, recently applied to be allowed to return to the island after his 84-year-old father Lin Hao-shu passed away in their hometown of Ilan County.

DPP legislator Chen Chin-te told a press conference that the Mainland Affairs Council (MAC) under the Cabinet should make a humanistic decision in Lin's case and approve his application as soon as possible.

Lin's elder brother Lin Wan-sung urged the government to take their feelings into account when making the final call.

He said that his younger brother had applied to return to Taiwan six years ago after his mother passed away, but was rejected by the Lee Teng-hui administration.

DPP Legislator Trong Chai also demanded that the government make a humanitarian decision on the esteemed scholar's case.

Chai asked the Chen Shui-bian administration to scrap the “Kuomintang government's blacklist” and allow Lin to return.

What happened with the supposedly thousands of missiles aiming at Taiwan? Have they been removed?

China has always been saying that they will have Taiwan back to the fold, by persuasion or by force.

Looks like persuasion is working now. But they are still holding the stick.

well pepe lopez, looks like it will have to be "force" because TAIWAN is growing further from commie Nazi china by the day.
Our china friendly President now has an approval rating of just 9%. The lowest ever.

Looks like China is doing a good job in persuasion. I hope both sides will agree to become one with two different systems. If old folks can not come to an agreement, I am sure the younger generation will agree to live as one.

Democracy is not and should not be a pre-requisite for a nation to exist.

Democracy, specially for China right now is not a viable system to run a government, when the country is still cleaning up the remnant effects left behind by the colonial powers.

Democracy is a disaster right now for the US when the two major parties are at odds in extending the debt ceiling and the legislation for more gun control, holding the nation as hostage.

So let's forget Democracy for China for now and focus on what China has achieved so far in a short period of less than two decades with no help from any country, but with 'negative help' from the US.

Don't worry about Democracy for China for now, as long as Taiwan is allowed to keep their wonderful Democracy like India, it is possible for both sides to become one.

It is good to see that China is strong enough to put things in order to install the Asian Monroe Doctrine which will cover Taiwan under whatever system or situation.

Be pragmatic and face the reality that united, or becoming one, will benefit both sides. If the older generation is about to hang their tennis shoes, welcome a brighter for the younger generation of Chinese Taiwanese and filo-Japanese Taiwanese.

Democracy is not and should not be a pre-requisite for a nation to exist.

Democracy, specially for China right now is not a viable system to run a government, when the country is still cleaning up the remnant effects left behind by the colonial powers.

Democracy is a disaster right now for the US when the two major parties are at odds in extending the debt ceiling and the legislature for more gun control, holding the nation as hostage.

So let's forget Democracy for China for now and focus on what China has achieved so far in a short period of less than two decades with no help from any country, but with 'negative help' from the US.

Don't worry about Democracy for China for now, as long as Taiwan is allowed to keep their wonderful Democracy like India, it is possible for both sides to become one.

It is good to see that China is strong enough to put things in order to install the Asian Monroe Doctrine which will cover Taiwan under whatever system or situation.

Be pragmatic and face the reality that united, or becoming one, will benefit both sides. If the older generation is about to hang their tennis shoes, welcome a brighter future for the younger generation of Chinese Taiwanese and filo-Japanese Taiwanese.
Andrez Lopez,

USA EMPIRE is NOT really that much of a DEMOCRACY in my eyes today! WE THE PEOPLE (USA Constitution) in that USA EMPIRE can not even formed ANY GOOD UNIONS to demand CRIMINAL CROOKS from LEFT-WINGS and also from RIGHT-WINGS to STOP STEALING from MIDDLE INCOME CLASS with BS Banksters BAILOUTS first from RIGHT to wet their POCKETS and then second time from LEFT to also wet their POCKETS plus all those COSTLY PERPETUAL WARS now a day and with Jew-CHRISTIAN-Queer DUMB-DOWN EDUCATIONS! What a joke of a DEMOCRACY HAD BEEN to use THAT HORRIBLE PLACE as a COMPARISON! YOU could, at least, use DENMARK, NORWAY, FINLAND, CANADA, and SWEDEN as a COMPARISON! Let's not even talked about THAT HORRIBLE PLACE any more!!=(

Let's talked about what would helped CHINA ECONOMY and also TAIWAN ECONOMY at same time! ONE of TAIWAN PROBLEMS is My TAIWAN NATION is not directly connected to CHINA MAINLAND at moment! This makes it harder for MARITIME TRADE CARGO SHIPS to want to berth in OUR TAIWANESE PORTS more often as they should consider that these MARITIME TRADE CARGO SHIPS just want to dump either their WESTERN HIGHER QUALITY CONSUMER GOODS or those needed RAW MATERIALS into CHINA mostly while moving CHINA CHEAP CONSUMER GOODS to other WESTERN NATIONS, of course! I'm always for more TRADES in between CHINA and TAIWAN! One day, CHINA will become a DEMOCRACY, too, which I look forward to that, and I'm sure that CHINA and TAIWAN can talked about THIS RE-UNIFICATION then at a later time!! >=)

Not only mind, it is the dream of all Chinese. As a missionary having friends on both sides, I know that all Chinese, without any special interest, expect the re-unification to come soon, but probably not soon enough for some old folks to see before they hang their tennis.

This thread

'Taiwan and China to Launch Cross-Straight Cruise Tour Line' is what?

It is heralding the re-unification, whether old folks like it or not.

Dream the same dream, wet or dry, or you will suffer a heart attack.

But how can you be a "missionary" when you are so obviously an atheist communist?

Oh yeah!

You're ALSO obviously a Chinese Communist Party SWINDLER!

Sorry!

As you were.....
