My favorite quote?
Bush, speaking with reporters after the meeting, said he told the premier, "The United States policy is one China."
Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but shouldn't we as a nation, given our history, be in favor of Taiwan seeking independence if they as a populace wish to be out from under the heel of China?
Shouldn't we, instead of ignoring their desires, seek to find a way for Taiwan and China to peacefully work out their problems?
I know it's a flashpoint issue and has been for a long time. But could someone explain to me why some populations under essentially dictatorial rule deserve to be liberated and others don't?
And before someone makes any cheap shots about Iraq or Afghanistan, keep in mind that I have said over and over that I definitely supported the liberation of those nations; I just didn't support the way the administration went about doing it. Had they said from day 1 that it was about liberating the population, I would have supported them.
And here we have a population that is specifically expressing a desire to be freed.
