As I am watching China's military build up and Bullying in her attempt to take possession of all the China seas and her Islands saying she is not going to take the desires of smaller countries into consideration even though the territory China now claims has always belonged to them.
I am also reminded that we just discussed yesterday that Obama and Fareed Zakaria are right when they say the time for forcibly taking another’s country is over. You can not do that in the 21si Century without paying the price and not militarily.
Just recently: China affirms goal of
Taiwan unification: Xi told Lien that he and other Communist
Party leaders who took office in November will continue developing ties and
pushing for unification with the island, which China claims as part of its
territory.Taiwan split from mainland China amid civil war between the Nationalists and Communists in 1949.
decades since have seen a growing independent Taiwanese identity, with
opinion surveys showing only a minority favour unification with Beijing.
The Nationalists, once bitter Cold War rivals with China's Communists,
support eventual unification with mainland China but only under a
still-to-be negotiated framework.
(/10/2011 China Urged Reunification at 100th Anniversary of Demise of Last Dynasty, promises more Democracy.
His speech was followed by an hour-long military display, which included fighter jets, tanks and missiles. China still claims Taiwan as part of its own territory. The two sides have eased hostilities over the past few years, but China has not renounced the possibility that it will use force to prevent the separately-governed island from declaring independence.
Democracy vow as China marked national day 2011: CHINA's top leaders have marked national day with an appearance on Tiananmen Square in central Beijing after Prime Minister Wen Jiabao pledged greater "democracy" and rights for the people.
In a speech Mr Wen pledged to address China's biggest social issues, including rising inflation, a yawning income gap, unemployment, food safety, corruption, environmental destruction and social injustice. "We will make great efforts to guarantee and perfect democracy and resolve the problems that most concern the people and that most directly involve their interests," Wen said in the speech posted today on government websites.
Does anybody really believe that? I want to say that China are master manipulators but they have learned from the best Democracy under communism something China has perfected. They have manipulated Democracy and Capitalism masterfully to further their style of all commanding Imperialist communism
As we've discussed often, the US is pledged to defend Taiwan who "at least they say" will never unify under China. There is no way we can get militarily involved with China's lust to rebuild Imperial China. Four years ago the US signed a deal to deliver a massive amount of advanced weaponry to Taiwan.
China is not taking this lying down! We have covered East, South, and China sea disputes extensively
Knowing all of this I must once again express naivety. We are so kept in the dark as to any truth in any incident here and around the world. I had no idea or even thought in this context but President Hu Jintao's call for a rejuvenation of the country 100 years after the Xinhai Revolution that ended more than 2,000 years of dynastic rule in China is something new to me. Worse part is that this includes Taiwan too and China is not going to settle for no!
President Hu called on all of China's sons and daughters to join hands to carry on with the work of the Chinese Republic's first president, Sun Yat-sen, and realize his ideals of what he described as “China's great rejuvenation.” China has not been building her military and flexing her muscles for nothing. China wants Asia period and not just supremacy. She is going to have her Dynasty once again United States be damned. I do not like this.
