sorry for making you disappointed, but, Taiwan is not an important alley to U.S...sadly...

Otherwise, the U.S should have sold their new weaponary system to Taiwan long before!!!

Pillipine is not so important to the U.S either....

The most important alley in Asia is S.Korea......

regarding the FTA agreement.
the Currency Swap, The free visa agreement, and the rank in export of weaponary system, and most of all, the Value that S.Korea has........and so on.

taiwan is not a country..and very frigile...it is, anytime, can be given up when it loses its value.

Philpine is way too weak..........

Both pilippine and taiwan are a small. but phillipine bears more and bigger value than sarswan island...since it is a country anyway....

US' problem with 'one China' policy....
http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/editorials/ar...

ARTICLE said, "

The "one China" policy was declared in China. The people of Taiwan had no say in the matter whatsoever. The policy was created to keep China out of the Vietnam War, to counterbalance the Soviet Union with China and to open markets for America. The Chinese wanted control of Tai-wan because it was seen as an imperialist controlled bridge to Asia. It had been used in the Korean War to provide resources to American troops, and in the Vietnam War to provide human and material assistance to Saigon.

The original purpose of this agreement is no longer valid or relevant. The Vietnam War is over, the Soviet Union has imploded and the US has plenty of trade with China.

"

.

.

ARTICLE also said, "

Why is "one China" harmful?

First, the policy limits the US' range of options in East Asia. We are blackmailed by our own policy. Any statement that recognizes Taiwan's right to be a mem-ber of international organizations, or to receive international aid (such as from the Red Cross or World Health Organization) is immediately attacked for undermining the "one China" policy.

"

USA's FLAWED Henry Kissinger ONE-CHINA POLICY should be UP FOR NEW REVIEW and RE-EVALUATED at some point but not now! USA ECONOMY and GLOBAL ECONOMY recovery will take PRIORITY in mean time!! >=)
