5:10 am
it should be understood that the security of taiwan has a global impact for those who would wish an ill. china meanwhile, is accusing the us of inflaming tension and says it's going down the dangerous path by sending politicians to taiwan. made asian wiggle in the united states and taiwan are colluding with each other. and some people deliberately compare taiwan in ukraine to very different issues in an attempt to confuse the public and take advantage of the chaos in georgia. this behavior of playing with fire is aimed at changing the current status quo of the cross straight relations. professor p to harris is from the colorado state university and co author of the paper broken nest deterring china from invading taiwan. and he believes it would be a mistake for taiwan to rely on allies to protect it from beijing. was taiwanese officials and certainly industry leaders in taiwan have said in the past, is this silicon shield idea that tie one's friends around the world?
