Re: Taiwan

I think the ethnic-identity debate is either a sham calculated to highlight in bold relief the attraction of a Chinese identity, or is an anti-China gimmick that is bound to backfire for the same reason. If anything, they should highlight the difference of political cultures rather than some historical or ethnic dividing line. Is also interesting that the "pro-China" pan-blues are basing their arguments on the "pragmatic" idea that pro-independence moves will DEFINITELY incur the wrath of the middle kingdom in the form of attack. Why such certainty?

Last but not least, its also interesting that the Frenchies have been conducting naval exercises with the Chinese close to the straits. Euro geo-politics baffles me.
