Another thing, it's a bit inaccurate to say "China and Taiwan." When you say "China," you're referring to both the People's Republic of China (mainland) and the Republic of China (island, aka Taiwan). You don't say "China invades Taiwan" or else you're saying the whole China, Taiwan included, wants to invade Taiwan. That doesn't make sense. Taiwan itself is a half of the split-up country called China, named Republic of China. It's like DPRK (North Korea) and ROK (South Korea). You don't say Korea invades South Korea, do you?

Hope Pan Blue wins in 2008. Hope KMT's new president is just as good a person as Lian Zhan.

If for any reason Taiwan goes back to China, all those will be studied and reverse engineered by the Chinese, and also all the tech transferred. Thats why the US won't offer anything like that (nuke subs,F-15s,Aegis, and certainly not nukes )

Well if Taiwan is China(ha ha!). Then it is the China that everyone is looking and hoping for. The china where democracy works, the economy is good, graft and corruption are low, IPR is somewhat protected, health care is good, income is high, education is pervasive, and freedom is everywhere.
Long Live a Free Taiwan!
