HERE COMES THE ANTI-CHINESE/ANTI-TAIWANESE RACISTS IN THE NAME OF DEMOCRACY AND FREEDOM . . . AGAIN.

Seneca is not just Anti-Communist which he pins on his lapel as a sign of honor, but also Anti-Taiwanese and Anti-Chinese, which I hope is not lost on the Taiwanese separatists seeking dignity and help from outside forces.  At least, China did not belittle Taiwan diplomatically, verbally or physically.  The outside help that Taiwan is banking on is calling it "rogue" and "renegade" when it comes to Taiwan trying to exert even one miniscule effort to defend its "sovereignty".  

As Cicero said, "There are those who believe that after Rome is lost, their fish pond will remain safe."

It is sheer naivete for Taiwan to think that its "sovereignty" over its EEZ will be respected if China were to be defeated militarily or undermined economically or politically.  Its "fish pond" will immediately be taken away from its fishermen, without hesitation.  And if they resist, they will be declared as "rogues" by their foreign allies, literally overnight.  Time for Ma to think about joining forces with China in patroling the EEZ of ROC/PRC in the South China Sea.  If he does not, he will surely face another murder of a Taiwanese fisherman in Taiwan's overlapping EEZ's with the Philippines or with Vietnam.  And, the Japanese may then renege on their fishing agreement on Diaoyudao, when it suits their interest, to Taiwan's chagrin.  Cicero could have told Taiwan that if China is lost, so would Taiwan's fish pond taken away from it.

The Philippines suffers from the Stockholm Syndrome, identifiying with every invader who had massacred at least one million Filipinos, and thus their wanting to ally with every colonial empire that has ever savaged their people, and now imagine themselves to be the re-incarnations of their former colonial masters, in treating Chinese like the savages they were regarded as by their colonial masters.  

No, China may be weak, may have been invaded, but China is made up of the most human of human beings, because while the Philippines lay within easy reach of its navies, China did not invade, let alone massacre the natives of what then were merely scattered tribal communities.  Many of the modern Filipinos are descendants of mixed marriages between Chinese men and Filipina women over the past five centuries.  And now, they regard the claims of China over some islands that their own ancestors did not occupy or claim, as some kind of an invasion.  This is the same mentality of squatters who have occupied the land of others for more than a generation.  They sincerely believe it is theirs.  It is not.  But there is no need to go to war over this.  Bilateral talks are needed and are the only solution.  The Philippines has a lot of squatted land to return, but China can make the Philippines prosperous beyond her wildest dreams if the disputes are settled amicably.  

Just one slice of the China market will make Manila ten times richer than it is today.  The major cities of the Philippines, like Manila, Cebu and Davao will become bastions of trade and wealth, like Hongkong, which is what the Anglo-Japanese Alliance is trying to prevent.  As the processing center of Chinese exports to the rest of the world, and of the Pacific and Indian Oceans to China, the Philippines would have more jobs than its overseas workers now are working at, except they will be working from their homes, able to see their own families, and above all, benefit their own people with their skills and services.
