CSM: Taiwan Can’t Be Fooled

This is The Christian Science Monitor’s commentary, from csmonitor.com:

China’s autocrats can’t seem to accept that Taiwan is a democracy in which the people have voted for Mr. Chen twice, and against Mr. Lien. They also must think they can act kindly toward Taiwanese politicians they favor while aiming hundreds of missiles at the island and recently passing a law that threatens war if Taiwan moves toward formal statehood.

These crude good-cop bad-cop antics by China only further Taiwan’s steady drift away from the mainland in everything but business ties.
