Thank you, Dr Larison, for mentioning this Taiwan by-election, which has received practically no mention in the MSM. This election answer a puzzling question about the Taiwan situation: why do the Taiwanese put themselves at such risk by accepting weapons from the USA? Now we know. They don't. The KMT it seems accepts the "One China" policy, contrary to the independence advocates, with the difference being that the KMT still adheres to the idea that one day they will return to power in China. Meanwhile, like the Chinese mainlanders, they can accept the system as it is now. The Taiwanese are not stupid.
