Taiwan must read the writing on the wall and begin planning for its new future.|
The USA is already overextended in the middle east. We have Israel, Iraq, and now new problems in Syria and Iran. All of these places will require posting of US troops for the long term. America may have to fight Russia for control of the Caspian Sea oil reserves too, but the men who will fight that war are only battling with snowballs today. Still, there's an increased attention to teamwork and manuvering than in years past, even at the elementary school playground.
America is getting out of China's sphere. Last year George Bush transferred troops out of South Korea and into Iraq, even as North Korea was expanding its nuclear program. That was a clear green light for the DPRK to make a nuclear bomb. Today it is clear that America wants Taiwan to join the PRC officially and allow its old ally, the USA, to focus on its oil wars in the middle east. The DPRK will continue to be a thorn in the side of peace until Taiwan is reunited with its country.
We were happy to be allied with the great people of Taiwan when the forces of communist totalitarianism sought to enslave not just the free people on a small island, but people the world over. We take solace in the knowledge that our work together for peace did prevent the tragedy of war that befell so many in places with names like Souel, Diem Bien Phu, the Bay of Pigs, DaNang, Kuwait City, and Fallujah. In parting, we say not as the French, "au reviore," "we'll see you again," but in the American tradition, "Good luck, and good-bye."
