A little off on some dates (unless he is using the ROC calendar???)
I think maybe Trump has stumbled into something here. Which gets me thinking, there may possibly be no more a stone cold example of petulant reactionary behaviour than what any of us have seen countless times when someone hereabouts perceives him or herself to have lost face. Save that of Mr. Trump's countless examples.
My dream of a neutral, green tourist mecca, a China-lite utopia sans militia, with the greatest S&R Force in the world, ready to deploy anywhere at anytime, a country that disengages completely with any relic of The ROC, new flag, anthem, anniversary, a place of science and ethics....well that's on hold.
How does a peacenik humanist such as I embrace the hawk and support Trump in his coming stare-down with Beijing? These are confusing and depressing times and I find it increasingly difficult to wring any hope out of each day's passing.
Prophetically-speaking, this blundering gaff of a mad petulant child man is sure to become a footnote to our future here in expat Taiwan.
