As the original post hinted, this is part of a larger tit-for-tat game between US and Chi-com. We threaten to play our Taiwan card, unless they pony up at the trade table. Watch them play their Kim Jung Il card about a month after the trade talks, if it goes against them. Then we'll cozy up to Russia some more, and it goes in circles.
Just part of the morning commute.
