TAIWAN REPUBLIC OF CHINA

I thought that the correct name of the island, formerly called Formosa, has been Taiwan R.O.C. (Republic of China). I thought that the end part of the name - R.O.C. - is going back historically to the legacy of Chiang Kai-shek and his goal to take back the mainland of China. I think it could be a good idea cut the suffix "R.O.C." and shorten the name to Taiwan. The leaders of the nation should at the same time declare total independence from communist China (People's Republic of China).

In the news: Taiwan holds massive war games.
