China Commentary– Youthful Musings on the Environment, Culture & Development

Humanitarian Relief vs. CCP

The Economist has a short, concise article about the recent developments between Taiwan and China concerning that wily ol’ monk.

There’s a silver lining to this issue that The Economist is wise to point out.  By China changing it’s tone, criticizing the DPP rather than the Taiwanese government as a whole, their criticism also conveys the CCP’s legitimate interest in continuing to develop economic ties across the strait.

I would like to think, after the May 12 Sichuan earthquake, such a devastating national tragedy here, the Chinese government would see soul soothing as something larger than a political ploy.  That leaders, as human beings, could see the position the Taiwanese leadership is in.  But alas, that day is far off.
