In that case, you had a German occupation of Allsace Lorraine - a coutry full of lots of French and lots of Germans, so both claimed it. Doesn't really fit for what you are talking about because the USA or UK or France or whoever else ... has not annexed Taiwan and made it their own. You hear mess of pure nonsense stating that, "any move toward independence for Taiwan is a move toward enslaving them to the USA". The USA has its influence over many things, but that is one helluva stretch. The USA has nothing to gain from Taiwanese Independence that they do not already have now, but they stand to lose a great deal if Southeast Asia is thrown into war by the matter.

What choice does the United States have but to favor the Status Quo?

the lands of taiwan has been taken by the acestors of chinese ppl
(including a 56-ehtic groups), and built by the off springs of chinese ppl, and live like chinese ppl, (completely same culture, same lauguage (local taiwanese laugugae is a local lauguage of Fujian province in china, most of taiwanese population come from Fujian province in Ming dynasty))
What has that got to do with drawing borders on the world map anyways? Doesn't seem to stop anyone else on this planet from doing their own thing. Examples are endless.

Quote:
taiwanese ppl dont want to get back to china cuz they want democracy, but in the future, china and taiwan wil still be together someday, cuz they are just the same.......
Lets face it, right now Taiwan is doing just fine on their own. China needs to make it worth their while. Invasion isn't likely to endear PRC rule to the hearts of the people of Taiwan. The best end to the story would be peaceful reunification.
wut i am talking about is taht dont try to justify taiwan's independance or discredit china's move to take taiwan back......cuz there are just so many examples to back it up...if u say it is wrong...than i can tell u, not lots of thing in this world is right, ask indians if they can take their lands back from americans....it is those powerful nations shit on the little guys

and taiwan is doing fine not by itself....but with china's trading..

taiwan sold over 40 billion of products and imported 10 billion of products to china only last year...china now stands as taiwan's largest trading partner......u know how many taiwanese got jobs due to trading with china, u know how much tax taiwanese government recieves from those trading industry,

and half-milion taiwanese working and doing buisness and studying in china...

it is just too closely connected...trying to seperate will bring disaster to taiwan, not just from military, but also to economy,

if cuts tie with taiwan, china does not lose so much, as taiwan stands only 5-6% of china's total trading revenue...but china will lose lots of investment too (although taiwan's investment is really small compared to other western nations)

and in 1995-6, when china shoot 6 missiles over taiwan's sky, 20 billion U.S dollar escaped from taiwan, taiwan's stock market crushed 1/3....

now china has 706 missiles pointed at taiwan, if a war really breaks out, taiwan's eonomy will suffer more loss

so dont seperate, or suffer

Somehow I feel that a lock is coming soon and this topic is going to the Hall of Shame before I finish the reply...

I am sure China is benefitting from Taiwan... trading is only one way to look at economy. One of the problems the US is facing is unemployment. A lot of outsourcing positions opened up the floodgate for companies to ditch the local high-wage earning employees and favor the cheaper labors in other countries (India, China, etc.) due to difference in standards of living. I don't have a number of how many local jobs the Taiwanese companies created in China, but I'd say with the amount of investments those companies placed in China, it's got to be quite significant. Imagine one day all those jobs disappeared, would Taiwan be the only party that suffered from the loss?

A simple economy tells us that when a deal goes through, normally both parties get what they want. One might get more than the other but keep in mind both need to benefit in order for the deal to go through. I don't think many Chinese people complain about having jobs and getting paid...

Don't threaten, nobody takes those well. Approach the problem with open mind and strike for win-win deals, then both can be happy and things will be that much easier.

The key there is keeping the discussion nice and civil.

That is a great example of not keeping the discussion civil and is a strong move towards the Hall of Shame. Lets not go that direction and maybe the thread stays alive.

This remains to be seen, to tell you the truth. Taiwan has relatively high quality products that can be sold almost anywhere in the world. The loss of one enormous market that is so close hurts, but it doesn't cause Taiwan's economy to spontaneously collapse. Neither side profits from severing economic ties.

Mutually, neither ABSOLUTELY needs the other, but both benefit from each other. What I fail to see is how China plans to sell the idea of submitting to PRC governmental rule. If you can tell me why Taiwan would be significantly better off under the PRC's rule, then you may have saved millions of dollars, millions of lives and a whole lot of rebuilding costs.

look at the trade number,

half of taiwan's importing and exporting are to china,

if the tie cuts, taiwan loses 40-50 billion of trade revenue over night,

for an island of GDP of around 300 billion....50 billion U.S is not a small number, it may bring an economic depression
