‘ROC’ name invites China invasion

Taiwan today cannot use its true national name. Instead, as a nation, Taiwan is referred to as the Republic of China (ROC). Due to this naming, Taiwan cannot become a normalized country.

Unique in its own way, Taiwan has caused a great impact, not only to itself but also to the world. Particularly in terms of military affairs, 21 issues can be identified that are extremely detrimental to Taiwan and the US.

One of the issues is that US troops cannot be stationed in Taiwan. Before Taiwan can be named properly, it is nominally a part of China.


Xi talks peace, prepares for war

I have had time to contemplate the meaning behind Chinese President Xi Jinping’s (習近平) recent “peacemaking visit” to his “friend with no limits,” Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The Beijing-facilitated Iran-Saudi Arabia agreement was a major propaganda success for China to project itself as a great power that is not only sincere politically, but skilled diplomatically in mediating international conflicts.

Riding on this narrative, Xi flew to Russia with the apparent prospect of ending a war started by his Russian ally.


Witting and unwitting propagandists

A photograph of former president Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) taking a deep bow before a statue of Sun Yat-sen (孫逸仙) while presenting a yellow floral wreath at the Republic of China founder’s mausoleum in Nanjing during his 12-day visit to China from March 27 to April 7 was used in a propaganda video released on Thursday by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army’s Eastern Theater Command.

The video titled China, We Cannot Lose Even One Inch of It (中國,一點都不能少) showed photos from the second Sino-Japanese War and the surrender of Japanese forces in China, as well as Ma’s visit in Nanjing and a large billboard in Xiamen, China, bearing the slogan “one country, two systems, unite China.”


US preparing arms deliveries: senator

The US is working on arms deliveries to Taiwan, visiting US Senator John Hoeven told President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) yesterday, as he called on other countries in the Indo-Pacific region to work together to safeguard peace and stability.

Hoeven arrived in Taiwan yesterday for his first visit to the country. Upon arrival for his three-day visit, he said: “I felt now it’s an important time to come to see my friends.”

Amnesty International has strongly condemned Taiwanese authorities for bringing charges against 119 people in connection with the Sunflower protests last year.

“The right to demonstrate peacefully is a fundamental human right and all states have a positive obligation to facilitate this right in law and practice,” a statement released on Tuesday by the organization said.
