Actually things are not quite that bad for Taiwan. The UN does actually recognise the rights of Taiwan to self determination. This is written into the Constitution. The problem is the UN had to appese China by pretending to disregard Taiwans claim to independance. Not very difference to Taiwans rights to be represented at the Olympics really (a fake name change and their in).

Anyway at the UN 41 countries have aggreed to stand up for Taiwan in every session since China joined. They continue to declare this support every year in what we call "None Member State Hearings". China, North Korea and Russias are banned from this as they oppose the existance of the session due to it's support for Tibetan independance.

I attended this session last year and it was good to see all the free countries of the World offering support to countries with lesser political might.

USA said Taiwan should dialoque with Japan re-islands but how can dialoque start when Japan insists there is no territorial dispute?

How many small Taiwanese fishing boats have been savagely rammed and sunk by Japan coast guard in Tiauyutai ?????

Tokyo did this despite Taiwan being friendly with Japan and even give biggest aid to Japan after great quake and tsunami.

Why USA is silent on this issue?????

USA and Japan should return isle to Taiwan and give diplomatic recognition to ROC/Taiwan.
USA double-standard is root of chaos and dispute.

Taiwan is the twentieth most powerful country on Earth (see "Top Twenty" thread). America is 1st, China 2nd, India 3rd, Japan 4th,...
So Taiwan could lead the alliance of Philippines, Indonesia and Vietnam to keep the South China Sea free.

China does not own all of Southeast Asia. The other countries in Southeast Asia needs to tell China to stay out of their waters.

Countrymen do not fight countrymen. The overwhelming majority of Taiwan Chinese identify as being part of the Ethnic Chinese Community.

Mainland and Taiwan Chinese are of the same blood, the same ancestral roots, and would never fight one another. We both belong to the same nation.

Politics should never again divide the Ethnic Chinese Nation. We are all brothers and must never fight each other.

Long Live the Chinese Nation !

Yes, both Taiwan and China should end cross straits hostility. China stopped pointing missiles at Taiwan and China does the same. Fully implement 922 consensus.
