This Is A Bit Of A Surprise

Bush Opposes Taiwan Bid for Independence

Bush caving in to the Chinese government. We've always been on the side of Taiwan and have promised defense of the island. What's going on? China is capable of hitting the U.S. mainland with nuclear weapons from mainland China. China is in control of the Panama Canal. China has and is developing a huge trade presence in the Caribbean. They are literally surrounding us under the guise of trade.

We also want China to help us cool the North Korean problem. But still, this doesn't look very good. It's a huge blow to the U.S. even if we don't realize it. How can any other country in Asia have confidence in our agreements to protect them? It's a huge blow to Japan - will this finally change their minds about arming themselves with nuclear weapons. South Korea is a little nervous too. Phillipines? Thailand? I really wonder what our government knows about China that isn't publicly known.
