US official questions ‘one China’

‘LUDICROUS’: A US Congress member said there was ‘support across the board’ for Taiwan joining the Trans-Pacific Partnership free-trade group in the second round

Washington’s “one China” policy could be “unsustainable,” US House of Representatives Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific Chairman Matt Salmon said on Wednesday.

“I am wondering if it is time for us to look at tweaking that policy a little bit,” he told a subcommittee meeting on the strategic impact of China’s economic and military growth.

“Things have changed,” he said. “Taiwan is now a thriving democracy and a lot of the policies that we have toward it right now seem to be outdated,” Salmon said.

He said that Beijing’s promise to have “one China,” but two systems for Hong Kong had turned out to be a joke.

“They do not even have the ability to choose their own chief executive and there is no universal suffrage in Hong Kong,” Salmon said.

“They have a thriving democracy that works and when they see how Hong Kong is treated they say: ‘Not on your life — that is not for us,’” Salmon said.

China used “lousy, stupid politics” to stop Taiwan gaining international space and joining international organizations, he said.

“They cannot even participate in Interpol, where they should at least have observer status,” Salmon said.

“It is ludicrous, the walking on eggshells that we do to try to appease China on this ‘one China’ policy thing,” he said.

Now these concerns may be appreciated in much of Asia, but where are such 'fellows' coming in to back the underdogs when it comes to a stateless condition for Palestinians?  Sometimes playing God, sometimes walking on eggshells; it's all part of nurturing a better tomorrow.

Do jews really think they call hold back the tide like Moses?  China is way too strong now, and the US is spiritually very ill.  Not even factoring in Russia.

Nobody gets paid to tell the truth.
