    Too many threads deteriorate like this, making discussion impossible. Perjorative language is quite useless.

    This new development is most interesting.

    It is possibly to ensure that ROC lands out there first, if China attempts to take over.

    Thereafter, the US would mediate the issue between ROC and others, US being a sane country compared to Communist China.

    One has to get used to this, especially from the Chinese members.

    When they have no facts to put forward, they tend to enter the realm of obfuscation or total irrelevance.

    Some of them have made it their Art of Living and some their occupation, as deemed by their superiors.

    there are alot country interest in SCS. and none of them really work together to settle the issues, just self interest.

    i don't understand how people shift from taiwan airborne to taiwan won't work with or back up china etc. if your guys really that bias and has to make any effort or opportunity to bashing china even with unrelated subject, maybe this forum should open a new anti-china section instead.

    taiwan has their own interest in SCS, same as china, philippine, vietnam, and none of them are goody goody country. its about self interest, and the only difference is china is a major power. if the situation were reversed, and any of those country above has the same amount of power as china then they will do the same, maybe worst.

    nah they pratically beg US to settle the dispute but US want to stay out of it. as long as china doesn't invade these country, i don't think US will want to involve its military.

    As per a post by a Chinese poster, it was the KMT which put forward the Dashes Theory.

    So, how is it that they are not with China over the Chinese claim of Philippines Island?

    Because they still need USA's protection to keep Chinese away from their coast. If they PUBLICLY work with Chinese, how can they explain that to USA?
    But, they ARE willing to co-operate with China within this area secretely, vietname knows it and everyone knows it.
    There were stories among Taiwaneses:
    In last 70s, taiwan navy provided centain level support to PLAN in Sino-south vietnam war.
    Several years ago, it was PLAN ships forced vietnam to back off when they tried to take over the one of sprtlys island occupied by Taiwan.
