This question “Should China and Taiwan unite” is very contentious. The West especially US do not want the Chinese unification. They do not want China to be more powerful economically and politically. But the patriotic Chinese want Taiwan to unite with China.

Everyone is entitled to his own opinion. Who is right and who is wrong is the question? I will express my opinion at the end of the is article. First let me give you a brief history of Taiwan.   

The ancestors of Taiwanese indigenous peoples settled the island around 6,000 years ago. In the 17th century, large-scale Han Chinese immigration to western Taiwan began under a Dutch colony and continued under the Kingdom of Tungning. The island was annexed in 1683 by the Qing dynasty of China, and ceded to the Empire of Japan in 1895.
The Republic of China, which had overthrown the Qing in 1911, took control of Taiwan on behalf of the World War II Allies following the surrender of Japan in 1945. The resumption of the Chinese Civil War resulted in the ROC's loss of mainland China to forces of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and retreat to Taiwan in 1949. Its effective jurisdiction has since been limited to Taiwan and numerous smaller islands.

Taiwan Miracle

In the early 1960s, Taiwan entered a period of rapid economic growth and industrialisation called the "Taiwan Miracle". In the late 1980s and early 1990s, the ROC transitioned from a one-party military dictatorship to a multi-party democracy with a semi-presidential system. Taiwan's export-oriented industrial economy is the 21st-largest in the world by nominal GDP, and 20th-largest by PPP measures, with major contributions from steel, machinery, electronics and chemicals manufacturing. Taiwan is a developed country, ranking 15th in GDP per capita. It is ranked highly in terms of political and civil liberties, education, health care and human development.
The political status of Taiwan is contentious. The ROC no longer represents China as a member of the United Nations, after UN members voted in 1971 to recognize the PRC instead. Meanwhile, the ROC continued to claim to be the legitimate representative of China and its territory, although this has been downplayed since its democratization in the 1990s. Taiwan is claimed by the People’s Republic of China, PRC, which refuses diplomatic relations with countries that recognise the ROC. Taiwan maintains official diplomatic relations with 13 out of 193 UN member states, though many others maintain unofficial diplomatic ties with Taiwan through representative offices and institutions that function as de facto embassies and consulates.
International organisations in which the PRC participates either refuse to grant membership to Taiwan or allow it to participate only on a non-state basis under various names. Domestically, the major political contention is between parties favouring eventual Chinese unification and promoting a pan-Chinese identity contrasted with those aspiring to formal international recognition and promoting a Taiwanese identity, although both sides have moderated their positions to broaden their appeal.  

My opinion

As I said earlier, everyone is entitled to his own opinion. Who is right and who is wrong is the question?

Taiwan is a developed country, ranking 15th in the world in GDP per capita . It is ranked highly in terms of political and civil liberties, education, health care and human development.

Taiwan GDP per capita as shown below.


Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., or TSMC, is the world's largest contract manufacturer of the semiconductor chips—otherwise known as integrated circuits, or just chips—that power our phones, laptops, cars, watches, refrigerators and more. Its clients include Apple, Intel, Qualcomm, AMD and Nvidia.

Since Taiwan is doing so well, China should not disrupt Taiwan. We must not forget that the Taiwanese are also Chinese. My grandfather came from Canton, China about 150 years ago to Malaya and I still have many relatives living in China. 

Some of my readers may not agree with me. Please bear in mind that you are entitled to your opinion.

CPC is like

Everyone wants to play as striker or playmaker, as No. 9 or No. 10. No one wants to be goalkeeper or defender. The manager sees the potential of everyone and place them accordingly so that they can have a 11 man football team. Think Alex Ferguson - "there is no player bigger than the manager. I run the show here."

Western democracy is like

The manager dare not make the players unhappy (think Ole Gunnar Solksjaer at Man U), nak jaga perasaan everyone, esp the "superstars". End up the whole team collapsed.

If CPC hide Covid, CPC really got salah. Undeniable

Tapi Western countries cannot even get their people to wear masks, and comply social distancing SOP. all those orang putih keep saying "it's my choice, my liberty" and so their Covid cases cannot go down. This is gross failure of leadership and government

2021-12-27 19:18


enning..start blaming your covid and american covid on China?

well....In China they are very proud of their success.

2021-12-27 19:19


I.e. CPC started a small bush fire

But those dumb Mat Salleh and their democracy and human rights turned it into a forest fire and burnt their own house too

enning..start blaming your covid and american covid on China?

well....In China they are very proud of their success.

in fact they are so successful, the CPC gains so much credit from it, they are doubling down on zero covid strategy ...even when it probably not necessary. so , looks like no China tourists for 2022 too. ,,,and no one allowed into China for 2022.

1. China will not and never drop the claims against Taiwan.

Eventually, by war or by peace, China is entitled for the island of Taiwan.

2. In their civil wars, The USAs fought heavily to avoid the separation and stayed
united thereafter.

3. Any other country had passed any law that if that will be their duty to defend
Texas/Hawaii if USA will refuse to let these states to leave?

4. Do we know why the USSR was broken and who initiated the breakaway? Now
conflicts were created arising from those republics that were subjected to
manipulation by others.

5. Today, only 5 countries in the world are still applying communism (Cuba,
Vietnam, North Korea, Laos and China) to administer their governments.

6. Although communism is anti God but the Chinese did not start the Buddhism, Islam,
Judaism or Hinduism. The Chinese just pay homage to their ancestors, Confucius

So, China can deal very well with many countries without have to be labelled as
a religion biased country.

The best Taiwan could do now is to behave like Singapore, make friends with both China (recognize 92 consensus immediately) and USA instead of antagonizing a giant neighboring superpower China. Lets be frank and honest, if Taiwan declares independence tomorrow, they will definitely need the military protection of both Japan and western power, they will need foreign military bases like the one in Japan and South Korea to achieve their "freedom" and "independence". Given the close proximity between Taiwan & China (look at the damn map), Do you think China will tolerate Taiwan having a US/western military base facing Xiamen? All these stooopidd lanmao keeps bragging about Taiwan dream of "independence" but they never realize how impractical it is to achieve this impossible goal.

Even US does not support Taiwan independence because they understand it's a very dangerous goal only in the dream of brainless lanmao.

"qqq3333. Don't waste your time replying enning222 and uncensored. The ways and style they wrote here looks resemble to the one i had read in youtube. These 2 are most probably from Hongkong or Taiwan or a pro-Taiwan. Their thinking are akin to "a frog in a well". Even i wrote Eraq (which in fact is Iraq and am purposely written wrongly) they don't know where.

Somewhere i have read before that stated the Ching dynasty only lasted for 12/13 generation because from the founding leader until the last emperor, because a place of worship constructed by the dynasty was accompanied with only 12 steps from floor to the entrance of the place of worship.

Laksamana Cheng Ho was during the time of Ming Dynasty.

Ming Dynasty was defeated by Ching Dynasty. During the Ching Dynasty, China adopted the "Closed Door" policy that caused the Kingdom being left behind or secluded from the rest of the world. China did not reach out to the rest of the world like before.

Japan moved ahead of China in terms of the modernization of warfare, commerce, economy, social

The Manchu backgrounds were overwhelmed by the Chinese Culture embedded in the Palaces from dynasty to dynasty for thousands of years. So, the Manchus were sucked/assimilated into the Chinese culture without any conflict during their ruling. Nationalism, Sun Yat Sen, brought about the collapse of the Ching dynasty (12/13 generations from emperor to emperor, Of course Emperor Chen Loong was one of the more preferred/famous emperor).

Presumably, by now the Manchus in China have refused to be identified separately but instead were assimilated, long before into the tribe of Han (the majority).

not to worry....one of the many training the CPC members receives is China / Party history. They are well aware of their history, weaknesses and strengths.

And u know why Xi signature program is Silk Road? Because he grew up in that region, infused with stories of the silk road. That China's best days must be open to international trade.

Xi is for reform and opening up ..........but the international environment is not good at the moment.

2021-12-27 22:46


and China history favors those who stay longest.....no surprise Xi wants to stay longer than 10 years.

after all, this is a critical time for China and China needs Xi.

But at a cost.....international forces want to push him down, but Xi will remain. Mainly also because Xi is really that good. I mean u got a Lee Kuan Yew, why u want to cut short his time?

Answer : There's an ancient history book that says chinese emperor son in law came and decreed that Malacca is China province after seeing mouse deer chased by wild boar! But later this history was distorted by those 'tuan melayu' historians!
Never mind, like chinese proverb said, one can wait another 1000 years to change the history again!

The domino theory is the theory favored by Washington in Vietnam and also Taiwan now.

2021-12-28 08:33


An early western account of the area is seen in Ptolemy's book Geographia, which mentions a "Golden Khersonese," now identified as the Malay Peninsula.[1] Hinduism and Buddhism from India and China dominated early regional history, reaching their peak during the reign of the Sumatra-based Srivijaya civilisation, whose influence extended through Sumatra, Java, the Malay Peninsula and much of Borneo and some of the Philippines from the 7th to the 13th centuries.

Although Muslims had passed through the Malay Peninsula as early as the 10th century, it was not until the 14th century that Islam first firmly established itself. The adoption of Islam in the 14th century saw the rise of several sultanates, the most prominent were the Sultanate of Malacca and the Sultanate of Brunei.

So should will afraid one day Sumatra will claim Penisular Malaysia?

2021-12-28 08:46


The history of China.............long divided will unite. Long united will divide.............So, for as long as Taiwan is not yet united, China is still on the up stage..............So, I guess they are patient enough to let the issue freeze for another 100 years.

2021-12-28 09:07


In the meantime, the local gangsters will continue to be strong in Taiwan, open hawker also need local gangster/ mafia approval.

2021-12-28 09:09


for Taiwanese the choice is between local gangsters or Xi ..............a very popular leader in China.

2021-12-28 09:12


the thing is, all the anti communists propaganda that the DPP produces do not reach China and has no effect on the mainland people. ....and so the CPC can tolerate the situation. and let the issue freeze.

2021-12-28 09:23


otherwise, if the DPP keeps polluting and dirtying the house, the CPC will have no choice but to put the polluting to a stop.

I mean, who can tolerate some one keeps polluting the house?

2021-12-28 09:26


You can see that the Chinese government would deliberate/brain storming all issue/policies before being announced via the Party Meeting. It is not the style of a Chinese to yell/scream in the open air about the affairs of the family and collecting shame/embarrassment.

Whether it is a communist gov or under the ruling of a kingdom, the China gov is administering the country well already if comparing to the liberals/demo-crazy countries.

Unlike the liberal demo-carzy, there were chairs-throwing incidents in the parliaments, shouting, fists showing, mocked the Presidents, candidates debate openly for for all to laugh, embarrassing...

SO, there must have deliberated in length so that Chairman Xi should remain longer to see those dreams to come true.

A.Talk of claiming msia territory loh!

1.Thailand can claim part of northern peninsula based on historical reasons

2.Indonesia can claim the whole msia, the indonesian claim they are separated bcos of british & the Dutch

3.Yes Spore can claim Sabah, Sarawak, Labuan bcos these are territories the British Administer thru Spore b4 they join Msia in 1963 loh!

4.Phillipine will lay claim on sabah bcos Brunai Sultan already cede Sabah to the Sulu Sultan as a reward for them for helping brunai to fight rebellion loh!

5.As for China they will not claim Melaka loh...!
If they want to claim they will chose Sabah....which much closer to China in terms of distance compare to Peninsular mah!
Also the sabah majority indigenous people are actually chinese, they have the Chinese DNA mah!
But China being a gentleman will not do that mah!
U see China fought Agst the USA in Korea war and Indo China ....eventhough China side won....they did not claim any part of the territories despite sacrificing about half a million of its people fighting the war loH!

B.As for Taiwan....they are 2 countries that can claim it based on historical reasons loh!

1. Japan
Actually the Qing emperor cede Taiwan to Japan when they lost the war mah!

2. China
Despite China ceding Taiwan to Japan during Qing dynasty....China manage to reclaim back Taiwan after World War 2...The League of Nations declare China is the rightful owner of Taiwan mah!

2021-12-28 09:40


no worries

its all Out of Africa

Nigeria can claim Malaysia too...... and sslee next baby with mistress could be black as well.

China can do miracles mah!

They have lifted 700m of its population out of poverty mah!

They are a very highly efficient machine with the main objective of taking care of its people & providing them with a better life loh!

This type of success can only achieve when u have great heart, love & passion for its people mah!

Correctloh....thats is how the democracy of the west flop mah!

They elected by dumbos & bums who demanded this free that free like typical what current "uncensored" is.....thus created a fail nation like the west mah!

If taiwan join China there will be a member of the best democratic system in the world mah!
For sure Taiwan will be given seats in the China Govt council loh!

Remember Effective Communist China is the most effective democracy of the world mah!

Very true success formula :China will continue on its path based on sacrifices for the future, for country, patriotism and morality based on its history.

But USA find very hard to emulate bcos the country are short termer & this nation are build to mislead & manipulate its people mah!

Remember without strong leadership...u cannot govern effectively loh!

Western democracy is a flop loh....u r rule by leaders elected by dungus loh!

China...elect their leaders...by democratic means...thru people who are patriotic & love their country very much and who have sense of good governance under CPC memberships.

They are 90 million strong voters pools even bigger than election rolls of UK mah!

Unbelievable China current democracy is even bigger than the whole of UK loh!

Evil things are happening in USA bcos it is a satanic nation mah!
It is confirmed USA is a Satanic country that intend to destroy the world and only the Great China is a savior who is willing to stand up against this evil force loh!

Why can’t the US control the spread of the Covid 19 Delta and Omicron virus when it wants to control the whole world?

US is the biggest bully in the world

Former US President Jimmy Carter said that US spent 95% of its 245 years history in Wars. This is true and you can verify if you Google.

In 2020 US military expenditure reached an estimated $778 billion, representing an increase of 4.4 per cent over 2019. As the world’s largest military spender, the USA accounted for 39 per cent of total military expenditure in 2020. This was the third consecutive year of growth in US military spending.

The US controls about 750 bases in at least 80 countries worldwide and spends more on its military than the next 10 countries combined.

After the 2nd world war, the US has been involved in 32 distinct and separate bombing campaigns on 24 different countries between 1945 and 1999.

If US wants to control the whole world, why can’t the US control the spread of the virus?

The biggest culprit is its liberal democratic system of government. Most Americans want to have the freedom of choice. They do not like lockdown and restricted movement control. They don’t even like to wear face masks and practice social distancing. They like parties and social gatherings.

I often see from CNN news that the people demonstrated against wearing face masks, restricted movement control and lockdown.

Even former US President Donald Trump did not believe in wearing a face mask.

Some ppl brain must be crooked. In history, you ever seen China attacked other countries and it should be other way round China attacked by western countries. As for USA, the case she attacked Eraq just on suspect of Eraq had destructive weapons but nothing were found at the end. Also attacked Syria, caused de-unification of Russians. The world should be peaceful if without US.

American patriots want to go out and evangelise / conquer.

China patriots looks inwards and wants to improve to China.

China has been slowly building up its military presence and capabilities in the South China Sea, which has its neighbors and the US and its allies worried about China trying to take control of the South China Sea and regional territories.
