Largest Demonstration ever in Taiwan

A million people marched through the streets of Taipei to demonstrate against a Chinese law authorizing use of force if Taiwan moves towards independence.
"Taiwan is only a small island, so we must speak out really loud to make the world hear that we are a democracy facing an evil giant," said Vivian Wang, a 38-year-old restaurant worker who traveled by bus from the southern city of Kaohsiung — about 190 miles away.
I lived in Asia for 5 1/2 years and went to Taiwan over 30 times. The Taiwanese are a very different people than the mainland Chinese. And, they really have been independent for over 50 years -- with their own military, their own passports, etc.

The Chinese have one of the worst pickup lines ever - marry me or I'll kill ya.

Shouldn't the Bush administration be helping the Taiwanese?
