This is an interesting story. It seems to me that the Taiwanese are aiming to continue their relationship with China under a San Francisco Treaty they entered in 1952. The Chinese however wants to eliminate this treaty and rule Taiwan just like every other province under its jurisdiction. I just cannot understand our congressman's position on this issue. If America wants to do the same with American Samoa by not following the Geneva treaty of 1899, abolish the Matai system, Land ownership system and have everyone become U.S. citizens, what will he do?

This is an interesting story because Taiwan was handed over by the Chinese to the Japanese(I think a China-Japanese War). Then the Japanese handed Taiwan over after the World War 2 to the United States. So officially the Americans are the occupying power in charge of Taiwan.
