China and Taiwan: Soon to be Reconciled?

Elaine Supkis over at Culture of Life News II has put up a very interesting post on recent developments in China/Taiwan relations. I recommend reading the whole post to obtain the context, but, contrary to what has recently been reported in the western press:
Taiwan is being divided: do you want war with mega big China or reunification? The sane choice is obvious. The axe is going to be formally buried this week in Beijing.
The western press has been concentrating on the recent passage of China's anti-secession law, which paints a grim picture of China/Taiwan relations, while simultaneously ignoring the fact of a very recent and very close election in Taiwan.

Interesting. I can hardly wait to see what happens.

Hi Elaine!

Good to see you here, on this modest little project of mine. :)

[Or maybe not so modest? Heh.]

It's looking like you were right about China and Taiwan. Yesterday I saw that the Chinese were making overtures to a 2nd Taiwanese opposition party, while refusing to deal with the elected party there unless they removed mention of Taiwanese independence from their platform. It's quite obvious at this point what the Chinese are up to, but what really fascinates me about this, in kind of a morbid way, is their display of raw political power, wielded in such a skillful manner. Unlike some countries I could name... ;)
