France Supports Chinese Imperialism Story dated 25 April 2005
In March 2005, so-called "parliament" of the People's Republic of China voted to pass an anti-secession law that would make it illegal for any territory claimed by Beijing to declare independence from China. The law authorized the PRC, under Chinese law, to use its military to invade any such territory if it should make a formal statement declaring that it is not part of China. The tyrants of Beijing claim Taiwan as part of their territory -- which is a ludicrous claim since the PRC has never had political control of Taiwan. Technically, Taiwan was not formally part of the Republic of China until the government fled there after the forces of the so-called "People's Army" conquered the mainland. The PRC, always looking for an opportunity to acquire more slaves (err, I mean "productive and responsible citizens"), has claimed that Taiwan is a rogue province for many years. And for some incomprehensible reason, no major power has overtly challenged them on this in the recent past -- although Japan and the United States are finally beginning to.
The anti secession law may also affect Japan. The PRC also claims that the Senkaku Islands, Japanese territory since the 19th century, are actually a part of China, though, they did not make any such claims until the latter half of the last century. Some legal scholars believe that the law could be interpreted in such a way that would allow the Chinese Imperial Army (fallaciously referred to as the "People's Army") to attack Japan if that country doesn't surrender the Senkakus to Beijing.
This brings me to France. You remember France, don't you? The alleged paragon of human rights, the epitome of what a modern civilized state should be (according to France, and socialists and other leftists in the United States, that is). You know, France -- that country that claims that the U.S. is an imperialist power because we wanted to attack a tyrant who did not respect the rights of the people. Well, it turns out that France is in favor of imperialism -- just so long as it isn't a perceived extension of U.S. hegemony. French Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin made a public statement that China's "anti-secession law is completely compatible with the position of France."
I really don't think I need to say anymore. That statement speaks for itself. _____________________________________________
