China's legislature began deliberating on a new anti-secession law yesterday, a law which analysts say will be intended to declare Taiwanese independence illegal and legalize "non-peaceful" means of dealing with the Taiwan issue.
BEIJING : China's legislature on Saturday began deliberating a proposed "anti-secession law" aimed at preventing Taiwan from declaring formal independence, the Xinhua news agency said.

Chinese political analysts have said the proposed law could make it illegal for Taiwan to declare independence and might create more leeway for Beijing to take the island by force or pressure it to accept reunification.

One proposal submitted to the legislature suggests setting a deadline of December 2020 for Taiwan to agree to reunification or face attack.

Increasingly obsessed with the Taiwan issue, and angered by Taiwanese President Chen Shui Bian's pro-independence stance, the Chinese Communist Party has upped the ante and served to heighten cross-strait tensions by holding a five-day meeting to discuss new laws that will effectively pave the way for the use of military means to resolve the dispute.

Passing a law internally to support your own country's standpoint in regard to international matters is about as meaningful as passing a law stating that the earth is flat. Add to this the Chinese Communist Party's penchant for preaching peace while brandishing a sword and you clearly have a regime that has lost perspective on the true nature of international affairs.
