Ict my little sweetie, your country has 1800 missiles point at us, and threatens to "wash the Island in the blood of our women and children"(commies words, not mine) So yes, we would rather die than be part of the commie's evil empire. The latest polls show that 95% of Taiwanese do not want to be part of china, up 10% frm 5yrs ago.
USA or Japan have nothing to do with being our Govt, as you know.
but ask your knee, when the ugly bully starts theatening, we ask who our friends are, do you understand?
so what you are going to do?

BTW, we don't have ' 1800 missiles point at you', if you are a New Zealanders.

so you are someone else?

BTW, don't use your imagination as we ever said.

"wash the Island in the blood of our women and children"?
we are not as insane as you. so relex.

former presidential adviser and Taiwan Brain Trust founder Koo Kwang-min (&#36764;&#23532;& #25935;) talked about his view of relations across the Taiwan Strait, saying he hoped Taiwan and China could become “fraternal countries.”

This idea is understandable, because Taiwan and China have many historical and cultural connections, but it is only possible if they respect each other’s sovereignty and national status and help and support one another.

Since its establishment in 1949, the People’s Republic of China has never treated Taiwan as a brother. At one point, it even went so far as to threaten Taiwanese with talk of the People’s Liberation Army washing Taiwan with the blood of it's own women and children.

Evidently China, with its materialist communist ideology, has its sights set on seizing Taiwan’s 36,000km2 of land, but it does not regard Taiwanese as people with souls and dignity. It is not surprising, therefore, that China does not go along with Koo’s idea that people are more important than territory.

Koo said that China needs peace for the sake of its continued development. However, the precondition and basis for peace is justice. Justice means mutual respect and treating each other as equals — only then can one have real and lasting peace.

That is why the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan, in its “Public Statement on the Sovereignty of Taiwan” it released on Aug. 20, 1991, called for a new relationship to be established between Taiwan and China.

“According to the principle of mutual benefit and peaceful co-existence, Taiwan and China should mutually recognize and respect each other and promote harmony and development in Asia and in the Pacific,” it said.

Taiwan and Japan can also be fraternal countries, because they also have many historical and cultural connections. When Japan ruled Taiwan from 1895 to 1945, it made great contributions to its culture and infrastructure.

In the postwar years, following the relocation of the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) government under Chiang Kai-shek (&#34083;&#20171;& #30707;) to Taiwan, Japan greatly assisted Taiwan’s economic construction and industrial development. Moreover, when the 921 Earthquake hit the nation in 1999, an impressive amount of Japanese aid flowed to Taiwan.

Taiwanese never forgot such generosity, so when Japan suffered a devastating earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster earlier this year, Taiwanese donated more than NT$5 billion (US$172 million), making Taiwan the biggest donor country. Indeed, Taiwan and Japan are brothers in adversity.

Despite the ongoing talks to improve ties with former arch-rival Taiwan, China is going to target 1,800 missiles at the country in 2012, reported the Liberty Times newspaper on Friday citing a military intelligence report.


Experts said that over 1,600 missiles are aimed at Taiwan by China currently, and most of them are deployed in Fujian and Jiangxi provinces in the mainland's southeast.

Taiwan's top intelligence chief Tsai Teh-sheng said in March that that China was targeting Taiwan with a new type of powerful missile known as Dongfeng 16. However, he didn't provide any further details of the weapon or the number that have been deployed so far.

Taiwan has for the first time deployed cruise missiles capable of striking key military bases along the southeast coast of the Chinese mainland, local media reported on Monday.

Mass production of the Taiwan-made "Hsiungfeng" (Brave Wind) 2E, which have a range of 500 kilometres (300 miles), has been completed and the missiles have come into service, the Liberty Times said, citing an unnamed military source.

The defence ministry declined to comment on the report, but the paper said the project, codenamed "Chichun" (Lance Hawk), had cost the military around Tw$30 billion ($1.02 billion).

Taiwanese experts estimate that China's military, the People's Liberation Army, has more than 1,600 missiles aimed at the island.

"To some extent, the weaponry can serve as a deterrent," Kevin Cheng, the editor-in-chief of the Taipei-based Asia-Pacific Defense Magazine, told AFP.

"In case of war in the Taiwan Strait, the missiles could be used to attack the airports and other military bases of the People's Liberation Army."

He estimated that there were more than 100 of the Hsiungfeng 2E missiles pointing at China.

Song Jaw Wen, a member of a panel of experts invited by the military to screen Taiwan's 2011 National Defence Report, said it was the first time cruise missiles had been aimed at China.

Tensions across the Taiwan Strait have eased since Ma Ying-jeou of the China-friendly Kuomintang came to power in 2008 on a platform of beefing up trade links and allowing in more Chinese tourists.

Ma was re-elected in January for his second and last four-year term.

However, China still refuses to renounce the possible use of force against the island in its long-stated goal of re-taking Taiwan

Nonsense talk. I don't know of any one who wants to sell his yang thingie to customers. Your ancestors bought opium, puffed opium and died happily. Opium was not given free to any one. Why do you want money back. Why didn't the British sell opium to Indians or Thais or Indonesians to make more money?

Because you idiot, The indians and indonesians were already bitches of the whites and the thais weren't any threat to the white colonialists.

China refused to give in to the whites and so had to be reined in by the whites.

The opium trade wasn't just about making money. It was also used as a weapon to take down a country that refused to be a white colonial lapdog.

China isn't the Apex predator in the UN.

Guess which country always twists the arms of other countries to get it's own selfish interests rammed through at the General Assembly and other UN bodies?

It certainly isn't the UN Secretary General who has final say in matters where the interests of a big power like America are concerned.

bll is not a Chinese but an offspring of a japanese invader in Taiwan. He is full of hatred for Chinese and Taiwanese using his dislike for commie as a disguise. He now resides in New Zealand acting like a running dog and doing war propaganda works for japan.

It's really is no good spamming your trashy propaganda here, because this is a political forum, and most the forumites here will have had at least some primary/basic education on international political histoy.

China was forced into accepting the opium imports by the British with the barrel of the gun pressed on its head. Thus the beginning of the 150 years of the Chinese coma and nightmare started with what's now referred to, historically as "The Opium War"
