Underestimating anyone or anything will get you in trouble. Always plan for the worst, and hope for the best.

For the topic, how does Taiwan use forces to separate? Do you mean a strike on the mainland prior to declaring TI?

Interesting point antimili about the media and changes in the textbooks. I must question the validity of those statements though. Show me a link from the Taiwanese media that portrayed China with false images that are far away from the facts. And compare the new and the old textbooks please and point out how the young generation are being lied to. I know what the Taiwan news are like, but I don't see how they falsely portrayed China. I mean, I lived in the US, so I get news here too. I haven't found big discrepancy in terms of facts presented by Taiwan's media or US' media or even China's media. I'll agree that all the media lack some professionalism in terms of being incomplete or not being neutral, but false image? The world is small enough today and people in Taiwan are allowed to travel outside the country even to China, so I think it's very difficult for the media to present false images.

As to where the problem is at... let's try to agree on the fact that each side has its position, and they unfortunately are not the same.

Another Taiwan Discussion? When will it end?

I have been following the situation in the Taiwan Straight, and there have been intense party campaigning going on there.

As I mentioned in another post, the legislater election in Taiwan is over and the dust should settle now. Blue party won convincingly and that will please PRC and the US alike. I always thought the presidential election should be held together with the legislater elections, every election divides the country and creates some problems that take a long time to fix.

Just heard on TV, while other Asian countries are focusing on Economy, Taiwan keeps itself busy fighting the politics. Good blue win, PRC got more time to prepare for the final showdown, just in case

I must agree here, Taiwanese spend way toooooo much energy focused on the politics. Like I said, the presidential election and the legislater election should be held at the same time. Everytime there's an election people get divided, nothing gets done. The system needs to get some updates.
