One does not have to read the headlines of tomorrow. The pro-separatist faction will win the Presidency, and probably, also the Parliamentary elections. For China to say it had no influence on the election would be the biggest joke of the year. Of course, it has the ability to influence the election. That it did not or would not try to influence the voters to vote for the pro-One-China nationalist party only shows that China, itself, has changed, and that in its heart of power, resides a new international master.
Well, the president's office was handed to the pro-Separatist party on a silver platter. 56% majority vote victory is nothing to sneeze at. It takes more than just the votes of the Green party to get this much vote, even the mainland and nationalist vote must be behind her resounding victory.
Now, we shall see what they have prepared for Taiwan and China.
The dismantling and division of China with the cooperation of both sides may have just begun. Whatever happens, we wish the Taiwan people peace and prosperity. It is not their fault, but the fault of the leaders of BOTH sides.
It doesn't matter anymore.. Taiwan will become the Asian version of Greece by 2020.. The economy is already down the toilet bowl and now she is facing economic strangle and constant threat by China. 1 out of 3 Taiwanese already holding a foreign passport.. all already to bailout and leave the country at any sign of trouble. Basket case for Taiwan!
