How in the world did this guy come to the conclusion that Chen Shui-bian is a pro-unificationist? Sometimes I wonder where on earth the Taipei Times finds these “scholars” … bizarre … :laughing:

Well, Chen does try to be all things to all people, but something tells me nothing short of a formal declaration of independence would please this “scholar” who, just like most of the most fervent Taiwanese independence evangelists, is based safely in the US.

Yeah, that worked out great! He got his own big statue and everything! But only after he came back to China and actually got his hands dirty letting Yuan Shi-kai elect himself Emperor. Seemed to have worked out alright in the end, though, as “the father of our country” is revered on both sides of the strait.
