    I believe that we should supply the loans necessary to help the Taiwanese defend themselves against the PRC military. Then the Taiwanese can spend the money necessary for education and health care. The PRC will whine about it, but it will not risk its economic relationship with the US (more than 120 billion in trade will occur during 2004) over an island that has been functionally independent for more than 50 years.

    i wish we had more taiwan defenders in Congress to help pressure the administration to do this.

    With all those missiles pointed at them, we need to firmly show the Taiwanese people we support them.

    Loans indeed!

    Why not just GIVE it to them! We give money away to every other Country, pay to have immigrants come to the USA for surgery, etc., why not help Taiwan in helping defending their Country?

    makes great sense especially with china misbehaving

    (man i hate when we travel near or through the straits between china and taiwan.. talk about being nervous, there's nothing like being a big floating target with more than a thousand missiles ready to be fired on you in case some Chinese hardline general wants to kick off ww3)

    my faith in "our protection" from the SuperSARS they'll likely throw at us is about the same as my faith in being able to safely bounce off the pavement after jumping off the empire state building.

    they have some nasty bugs in china and i don't mean creepy crawler insects.
