China Urges Reunification at 100th Anniversary of Demise of Last Dynasty, promises more Democracy.

You better keep this in mind as we continue to grapple with China, it will get worse.

Chinese President Hu Jintao used Monday's 100th anniversary of the Xinhai Revolution that brought an end of imperial China to call for reunification with Taiwan, an island that has been governed for the last six decades by the Chinese Nationalists.

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 marks national day: 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. Three years ago the US signed a deal to deliver a massive amount of advanced weaponry to Taiwan. The package includes a variety of U.S.-made weapons systems, including Patriot III anti-missile missiles, Apache attack helicopters, Harpoon missiles and Javelin anti-tank missiles.This was 3 years ago Some deliveries are in process and some still being worked out.

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 calls 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.

I have to plead ignorance here as well. Wasn't it just a few years ago that the two countries wanted to build a bridge from the mainland to Taiwan? I'm sure that was only a pipe dream.

I've been busy watching and assisting our current revolution. If this thing gels and I think it will you may be witness to a very big change in this country. And it won't be broadcast on MSM. It's happening here in cyberspace.

Yeah Demeur it will gel. A dear friend of mine is politically tied right to the top of the Government including Obama. He thinks we will be placated and eventually go away. I am afraid not because any further action will not trickle down to those who need it most.

Funny but I wrote about the bridge but forgot all about it in this context. Think about it, it would be great for a unified China but all I see is more crap for us because Taiwan will not go down quietly.

Thanx for the post Jim, which I read earlier actually. But all I will say is this ... what the old hardline commi's of China want, and what the new young Chinese want, are different, and them getting this taste of more freedom and democracy type direction is going to be hard for any government to take away totally, because it's in the blood and the hunger for more come's with that, the younger generation's of China will have their own agenda and wayz. Just my view on alot Jim ... but also as far as your coment about Taiwan not going down quietly ... heh, heh, heh, heh, heh ... I agree there! : )

I agree RC but on the reunification I can not see Chine taking no for an answer period.
