    This must have been news to the 22.7 million people on Taiwan who have no intention of unifying with the Communist PRC. Powell's remark was inappropriate; an embarrassing gaff. It must have caused some head scratching in Beijing as well.

    "ah yes, another one in our pocket. first baker, then christopher, then albright, now powell. we must make sure the next secretary of state honors his predecessor's tradition of bowing to china at america and taiwan's expense"
