Looking at events over the last year or so, there seems to be an overwhelming urge among Taiwan politicians and senior government officials to punish people who may or may not have been able to control the situation - as the first thing to be pursued - and then try to figure out how to fix the problem.
Or is this just the Taiwan journalistic style?
SARS would be a prime example. They were certainly sanctioning people faster than they were dealing with the problem, if the newspapers are to be believed. I may be somewhere where you cannot read Chinese language Taiwan newspapers - but so far the English ones have no problems.
It sort of overlooks the possibility that the politicians and senior government officials could be a major part of the initial problem.
This recent issue would be another prime example.
