All this begging to talk to the Japanese is truly embarassing if not outright shameless. China and Taiwan should be talking to each other, not as Ma intends to falsely portray, of two sovereign and equal countries negotiating with each other, but as two nationals of one same sovereign country, if Ma is true to his pledge to uphold the constitution of the ROC. Ma's excuse not to talk to China about Dioayudao shows he is afraid of the West and Japan. This lack of determination to defend the sacred soil of the ROC is pathetic, pitiful and pussilanimous.
The next election should be predicated on a medical examination of the candidates to make sure they have two, not one, healthy and not sickly, balls.
