Taiwan's leader Chen Shui-bian declared国统会终止运作,国统纲领终止适用。And this Chinese version is translated by Taiwan authorities as  "the National Unification Council will cease to function and the National Unification Guidelines will cease to apply."

we know that Chen first raised the issue of 废统 (abolishing the NUC and NUG), but  his remarks aroused strong concerns of the Bush Administration. It is said that Chen's men and the US side have had many discussions before they agreed on the wording, and the final version of Chinese is 终止 and English, cease.

There are two "zhongzhi" -- one is 中止,meaning "suspend," and the other, 终止, meaning "finally end." The English word "cease" may mean both.

Chen's Chinese wording 终止 definitely means finally ending the NUC and NUG, but his men intentionally translated it as "cease" the operation and application of both. Chen is trying to deceive the whole world by this intentional inaccurate translation.

Writer's real name is Lau Guan Kim.  lau_guan_kim is for commentary and analysis. He writes also under another alter ego jinseng. I will respond to good reasoned debate. Mudslingers shall be ignored. What I do not like are ignorance, stupidity, chauvinism and bigotry. The other party has as much right as I have until it resorts to insults and nuisance.

The rationale here is as it ceased to function since 2004, there is no point adhering to it or any nuse of it. This second term is not harsh as it does not  mean severing the link.
----------------------------------
you just missed my point: "cease" is not an accurate translation for 终止,  and Chen's men were doing this inaccurate translation deliberately to sell their scheme.

the NUC and NUG have not been working toward reunification of the country for most of the time, but they are a symbol of the one-China principle, which is recognized by most countries in the world.

By annuling the NUC and NUG, Chen is trying to cross the red line and declare formal independence of Taiwan. that would be a catastrophe for people across the Taiwan Strait , the Chinese nation,  Asia-Pacific region, and the world at large.

whatever Chen forced the National Unification Council,that is uselessness.Because the Bush's government is busying on Iraq ,Iran,North Corea,etc.They has no power to support the Chen's determination.CCP will keep silence and watch what the Bush 's  words and deeds
