It's no secret that the Taiwan military is one of the last strongholds of KMT corruption, and like any corrupt organization, standards become lax as the people focus more on maintaining power than doing the job they are supposed to be doing.
As Chu Ping-tzu, an associate professor of Chinese literature at National Tsing Hua University notes:
It's incumbent on Tsai Ing-Wen to take on the ingrained corruption of these institutions and root it out. That's a massive task, but a critical one for Taiwan's future. She has a huge political mandate - i hope she doesn't waste it.
