Taiwan people can break KMT-CCP 'black box'

All Taiwan citizens concerned with the future of their livelihood and our collective future should support or participate Sunday's demonstration in Taichung City by the opposition Democratic Progressive Party to "break the black box" surrounding cross-strait negotiations and "let the people decide."

Beginning on Monday, the fourth meeting between Taipei's Strait Exchange Foundation Chairman and ruling Chinese Nationalist Party (Kuomintang) Chiang Ping-kun and Beijing's Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Strait Chairman Chen Yunlin, representing the Chinese Communist Party -ruled People's Republic of China, will be held in Taichung.


Control Yuan: All bark and no bite

Anybody who believed the findings of the Control Yuan’s investigation into who was responsible for the infamous decision initially to refuse foreign material aid in the aftermath of Typhoon Morakot will probably also be waiting up on Thursday night hoping to glimpse Santa Claus and his reindeer.

Wednesday’s report — which reads like a student’s excuse for not doing homework — censured the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) for issuing the refusal while putting the blame for the decision to refuse offers of foreign disaster rescue expertise at the feet of Director-General of the National Fire Administration Huang Chi-min (黃季敏), deputy commander of the Central Emergency Operation Center when the typhoon struck.


The Peaceful Need for Japan and Taiwan to Support Each Other

No one has ever defined what the status quo in the Taiwan Strait actually is, was or should be though everyone talks about it. So the charade continues that there is a status quo and that everyone supports it (peace included). Despite that, China regularly adds to the number of missiles it has pointed at Taiwan; it makes military threats and anti-secession laws, and jails any and all pro-democracy dissidents within its borders. In keeping with the same mythical status quo, Taiwan under the Ma government says that it believes its 23 million people should control their destiny yet it consistently ignores their input, currently tries to ram a non-transparent ECFA down their throats and promotes pro-unification policies. And the USA, if pressed, will state that Taiwan's status is undetermined, but in its actions the USA neglects any input from the actual people of Taiwan and tries to accommodate the China market. What then really needs to be done?


Ma remains oblivious to the public

Rushing to respond to President Ma Ying-jeou’s (馬英九) recent interview with the Wall Street Journal in which he was quoted as supporting a timetable of 10 years for Taiwan and China to consider unification, the Presidential Office on Tuesday said that the president had been misquoted.

Ma’s actual and complete wording was: “Whether there will be reunification as expected by the mainland side depends very much on what is going to unfold in the next decades.


Saito cares for Taiwan, Ma cares for China

President Ma Ying-jeou’s (馬英九) government implemented a boycott of former top Japanese representative to Taiwan Masaki Saito after he said that Taiwan’s status remained undecided. Eventually, Saito had to resign for “personal reasons” early this month. This unfortunate outcome is the result of the government’s inability to know what is good for itself, as it is helping China to annex Taiwan while completely disregarding Taiwanese interests.

Based on the San Francisco Peace Treaty, what Saito said is a legal fact. For Taiwan, this state of undecidedness is second in importance only to full recognition as an independent, sovereign state. International support is necessary for Taiwan to protect itself against Chinese annexation.


Taiwan-PRC ECFA needs debate and referendum

Late last week, President Ma Ying-jeou finally agreed to hold a direct debate with opposition Democratic Progressive Party Chairwoman Tsai Ing-wen on his right-wing Chinese Nationalist Party (Kuomintang) government's controversial proposal to sign an "economic cooperation framework agreement" with the authoritarian People's Republic of China.

There should be no doubt that Ma accepted the challenge for a direct debate on the proposed ECFA issued over a year ago by Tsai because of the setback suffered by the KMT in the Dec. 5 "three in-one" elections.

The Taiwan High Court yesterday acquitted former president Chen Shui-bian (陳水扁) in an embezzlement case involving US$330,000 in secret diplomatic funds.

The Taipei District Court in June last year found Chen not guilty in the embezzlement case and the Taiwan High Court yesterday maintained the lower court’s ruling.
