China declares that Taiwan independence advocates pose "a realistic threat" Story dated 18 January 2005
The rising superpower, China considers Taiwan, a liberal Republic and a much nicer place to live than China, to be a security threat. Taiwan has no reason to want to attack China unless, oh, say, China attacked them, like they've been threatening to do. China's belligerent imperialism continues to be ignored by the world community at large. I still support the idea of an East Asian Confederacy of Free States comprised of Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan. Here's an analogy for you if you have trouble grasping what's going on. Imagine that Ireland built weapons systems that could strike Britain. Would Ireland be a security threat to Britain? The answer is 'no'; unless Britain were actively trying to annex Ireland, or if Ireland for some reason became Communist and, almost by definition, belligerent against all liberal republics. _____________________________________________
