Will Bush step up and defend the Republic of China (Taiwan), or will it be as George Jonas predicts in his article, Selling out Taiwan: George Jonas on the growing crisis in the Strait of Taiwan? It looks like the Bush administration wants to have a status quo situation...
Things may be looking up for democracy in the Near East, but the Far East is a different story. By the end of today, China's figurehead "parliament" will have rubber-stamped Beijing's new anti-secession law. China's rulers are giving themselves the green light to invade Taiwan.
They may not need to bother. The world seems ready to hand democratic Taiwan -- a.k.a. the Republic of China -- to Mao Tse-Tung's heirs on a platter. (National Post, 03/14/05.)
