There is no truce. The civil war is ongoing.For all of your consideration this week / month / year :
in my humble opinion, ever since the truce situation between mainland China and the Taiwanese on the island of Taiwan came into effect,
and that in turn probably means that the US is very unlikely to 'give up' Taiwan to the mainland now or in the future..Taiwan issue was created by US, in 1949 US sent in 7th fleet to Taiwan and blatantly got itself involved in the Chinese civil war, without US interference, China wouldn't haven be divided like today.
'we' must have been severly worried about Chinese power, even before the days of the opium wars..Didn't USA lost the war in Afghanistan and he want them to take on China a nuclear power ?
Some are so desperate to even bring out opium war of hundred years ago incident?'we' must have been severly worried about Chinese power, even before the days of the opium wars..
i'm sorry about that, and all of the divide and conquer tactics used by my people on the Chinese in China.
on the flip side of this coin, there is the diplomacy by western Chinese martial arts clubs, Bruce Lee, and Jackie Chan (who presented us with great Chinese friendly humor in his later productions)..
