For one thing, I want to emphasize the fact that the China has always attached much more weights to the peaceful reunification than the military
And that's not the first time the American presidents have menaced China with military force and forced China to give up his unification. ......what
did you call it?.....peace?.........
As for the Tiananmen square, this is our own interior thing not to do with the peace, and you didn't talk to the point or beyond the thread. However,
I'd like to say something about it. I admit that the event of the Tiananmen square is wrong for Chinese government to some extent, but in a way it is
also right. I have been appreciating the American democracy of its individuals greatly, but the US as a whole country is gruesome.
You are totally wrong....Tiananmen Square was not right in any way...not at all....those people were not even armed, and it shows the way that the
Chinese government resolves what you call "peace."
The Chinese government said there were 300 deaths, but the body count was much higher. Amnesty International said the toll was 1,000 deaths, and
other western estimates puts the count higher. None of these people had a gun to defend themselves or to have the Chinese government order their
police to open fire on these people.
Another thing, the US has never openly said that a war with China is inevitable, it has been the Chinese government's decision to state in public,
several times, that a war with the US is inevitable either way, and it has always been China who starts "military exercises" close enough to Taiwan
to try to submit the Taiwanese people with a show of force.
If it was only a small portion of the Taiwanese people that wanted this then I would understand why China wouldn't want the independance of Taiwan,
but all or most Taiwanese want this independance, there is only a 10% of 23 million people consider themselves Chinese. I am sure they do not want to
see another "Tainanmen Square" in Taiwan if the people ever have to peacefully protest against the Chinese government.
You can find some information in this site.
What Taiwan wants
" Taiwanese hope that even yesterday's small opening will stabilise their problematic relationship with China. They also hope it will put a damper
on the booming illicit trade in seafood, produce and consumer goods between the islands and the mainland, so that legitimate business and investment
take over. "
BTW, i was born in a communist country, and lived under communism until I was 8 years old. I remember what being under communism means, how the
regime controls the media and the people completely. Any sign of disagreement with any communist/true socialist regime means either torture and jail
And you want to name the US as a gruesome country.....you have really got to be kidding... Any communist country is evil incarnate, and I am not
religious. If evil really exists its manifestation is communism/socialism.
Your so beloved government has killed since 1900-1987 35,236,000 people. That's over 35 million of your own people, and that's only what we
Do not even think you can lie here about which government is gruesome. Communism should not exist at all, in a way communists share what the radical
Islamists want. Either the total submission of the west and the world being communist, or the destruction of the west. The difference with radical
Islam is that the terrorists want Islam to dominate the world or the destruction of the west.
