Why US should defend Taiwan ? Democracy to a country is
sure as good and healthy as vitams to a person.
But who is enjoying it ? It only play a small part
of this whole deal. The main issue is that someone has
claimed ownership for the land you live on and *you*
must fight for holding on to it, not US. After all
it is a game of wolfs fighing food and territory;
US is sympathetic on your side and that has little
to do with democracy.

My point is not that it is the duty of the US to defend Taiwan, but that for a country that purports to "defend democracy around the world" it seems a little duplicitous to thrown one of the world's best small democracies to the dogs. And in this case, the US is actually dissauding Taiwan from writing a more liberal constitution.

it's all about money when it comes down to it. and business. we don't care about democracy, we only care if there's some sort of benefit for us to care. i'm not saying that it's right or wrong, it's the way it's always been.

Personally, I am sorta you on the part US is always talking out of both sides of their mouths. I think the US are just hypocrites when it comes to giving people democracy. On one hand it's looking more and more like they WON'T be giving Iraqis democracy, the same week they were supporting democratic development in Hong Kong, as the same time they are slinking away from Taiwan at the same time bed buddying with China which is highly undemocratic. Like. Come on guys. Thanks for supporting HK but let's have some consistency, don't you think?

But I don't think China will invade taiwan. Too much of a Internation Inccident. They just want money and US has it, and will have more when all the companies decend on Iraq.

The US should give Taiwan nuclear weapons to defend themselves against the Chinese who could use them on Taiwan. Fair? you decide...

    This blog stands against the fictitious law passed in March 2005 by the P.R.C. proposing that unification is Taiwan's legal and moral duty, even to the point of the P.R.C. using force to uphold that fiction. TaiwanTiger ascribes to the statement of Taiwan's Mainland Affairs Council that:

    "The Republic of China is an independent and sovereign nation and its sovereignty rests in the hands of the twenty-three million Taiwanese people. Only the twenty-three million Taiwanese people have the right to make the final decision on any change to the nation's status and future."

Taiwanese Food

    So, this seems kind of crazy, but hey we all love to eat, right? In Taiwan, it's considered a hobby. When you go on a trip, you need to stop at such and such town for their great ______. Noodles, shrimp rolls, chicken thighs, soup, whatever. Everyplace seems famous for some addition to the Taiwanese culinary tradition. So here I am attempting to document some of the traditions of eating, the places to go, and the food itself. This will be a difficult and slow moving project, because I feel really strange photographing food in the presence of other diners, especially when I have to stand on a chair to get it all in.
