Taiwan Votes For Quiet Life

    “And as good realists, we – the Chinese – want to dominate Asia….” Where does Taiwan fit in “the uncertainty of intentions” WRM and is East Asia becoming most critical part of world vis-a-vis U.S. foreign policy?

    I continue to believe that the strength of Han nationalism is such that Taiwan will rejoin the mainland under a Hong Kong type formula, at some point in the not so very distant future. It may not be until there is a generation of Taiwanese that knows not Mao, but it will happen.

    It is possible that a “civil war” could break out in China, and one manifestation of it might be a mainland vs Taiwan war. But, if the mainland leadership can keep the bicycle upright, a deal awaits them.
