Chen, China, and Taiwan democracy
In order to consolidate support in an election, any politician has to target his opponent's weak spot. Chen used China's hostility towards Taiwan, Chen got Taiwanese people afraid and emotional, Chen campaigned for "passiong for Taiwan," cleverly excluding any pro-Chinese element in his campaigns. That's how you win elections! You bring up topics that raises dividedness, you raise tension, whether internal or external. And "China" has always been used to Chen's advantage.|
Why? It is easy to get people afraid with the 500 missiles. It is easy to get people to hate China for supressing Taiwan in international events. But are these threats really there? Yes!
Like I said, China gave the right topics to raise before his election... and the DDP will likely use the same strategy. Although I know China's intention is peace, but it has also alienated more and more Taiwanese people with all the verbal threats. Chinese are patriotic people, that's why to win Taiwanese people's hearts, China needs to get Taiwan to be patriotic of China.... and missiles, invasion, belligerence, just won't do it! That's what I mean by stop giving Chen the excuses to raise mass hatred against China....
I mean, if all you guys are so eager to go to war with Taiwan and destroy Taiwan in a "swift way"... then you might as well do it, just to end the miseries of the Taiwanese people once and for all!
