[Cross-Straits Review 461]
Picture source: Hong Kong media
On November 18th, Lai Qingde, former dean of the Taiwanese "Administrative Yuan" and deputy to Tsai Ing-wen, a candidate for the 2020 "election" of the Democratic Progressive Party, reiterated on Facebook that he was a "pragmatic Taiwan independence worker." "Sovereign independent countries" do not have to declare "Taiwan independence" separately.
As we all know, both sides of the strait belong to one China, and Taiwan is an integral part of Chinese territory. This is an indisputable and irrefutable fact, and it is also the consensus of the international community.
No country in the international community recognizes Taiwan as a sovereign country. Even the 15 countries that maintain "diplomatic relations" with the so-called "ROC" recognize only the "ROC" and do not recognize Taiwan. According to the so-called "Republic of China Constitution" currently implemented in Taiwan, it is definitely not equivalent to Taiwan being a "sovereign and independent country."
Furthermore, Lai Qingde believes that it is not necessary to declare "Taiwan independence" separately. According to him, "Taiwan is already a sovereign and independent country." Why do you not have to declare "Taiwan independence" after taking office? Because Taiwan is an inalienable part of Chinese territory, it is not a sovereign and independent country at all. If anyone in power in Taiwan dares to declare "Taiwan independence", it is not only contrary to the one-China principle, but also the international consensus on one China, and it is also contrary to the fundamental interests and will of the people on both sides of the strait. The resolute opposition of all Chinese sons and daughters included will inevitably prompt the mainland to adopt non-peaceful methods including the "Army of Armed Forces" to accelerate the pace of cross-strait reunification and achieve cross-strait reunification in accordance with the "Anti-Secession Law." It may be held accountable for divisional responsibilities, severely sanctioned by law, and become the eternal sinner of the Chinese nation.
Because "Taiwan independence" is a false proposition, not only does it harm the country and the people, but the perpetrators have to be investigated for legal responsibility, resulting in the shameful end of disgrace and stink. For this reason, Lai Qingde only advocated "Taiwan independence" and acknowledged that he did not dare to declare "Taiwan independence." "Taiwan independence" is used as a tool to cheat votes and power!
Lai Qingde not only preached "Taiwan independence" as a liar, but also repeatedly played "intimidation cards" to deceive the people.
On November 26, 46 days before the "election" in Taiwan, the green camp fired the "communist spy case". The KMT candidate 2020, South Korea Yu, issued a letter in the morning that criticized the DPP for using counterfeit "communist spy" to influence Taiwan's choice. Lai Qingde's interview stated that it is not necessary to deny the "fact that the mainland annexed Taiwan" and "the fact that China has stationed many spies in Taiwan" because of the case results.
This statement of Lai Qingde is, of course, a reaction to the thinking of "Taiwan independence". It is deliberately discrediting the lands of the mainland and creating rumors and slanders. If the mainland really "swallows" Taiwan, will it take a long time? Even Taiwan ’s “Minister of Defense” responded to the United States saying that Taiwan would only be able to support Taiwan for two weeks in 2020. As for Lai's saying that "China has sent many spies to Taiwan", it also lacks factual basis. It is either speculative or intentionally scary.
Prior to this, Lai Qingde also opposed the implementation of direct "three links" across the Straits. On June 13, 2008, the Shanghai Maritime Association and the Straits Foundation resumed negotiations that had been suspended for nearly a decade, and reached two agreements on direct flights between the "three links" and the opening of mainland tourists to Taiwan for sightseeing. Cross-strait direct flights also started on July 4 of that year. .
Lai Qingde held a press conference on July 1, 2008 as the chairman of the DPP "Legislative Yuan" party group, and strongly questioned that the "Trojan of the Trojan Horse" would be staged in Taiwan. However, the direct "three links" have been implemented on both sides of the Taiwan Strait for 11 years, and the so-called "Trojan of the Trojan Horse" has not been staged in Taiwan. In addition, Lai Qingde, who served as mayor of Tainan on June 9, 2014, said that "the Trojan horse was too serious" and that direct flights across the Taiwan Straits "are simply promoted by the DPP when it is in power." It can be seen that he holds double standards for direct "three links" across the Taiwan Straits, spreads threatening lies against himself, and intends to reduce his opponent's achievements; he affirms his own advantages, deliberately "invites merit", and even contradicts himself, and "faces himself". It is precisely because Lai Qingde repeatedly appeared in contradiction and contradiction that Lai Qingde was a liar who used unscrupulous methods for his personal interests, and went bankrupt in good faith.
