A few days ago, the "Taiwan" forces in the US Congress were preparing to put forward the so-called "Taiwan Symbol of Sovereignty Act" to send a signal of "strength and support" to Taiwan.
According to media reports, the "Taiwan Sovereignty Symbol Bill" thrown out by the United States mainly lifts restrictions on sovereignty symbols such as the "flag", badges and uniforms of the Taiwan authorities, allowing Taiwan "diplomats" and soldiers to perform official duties in the United States. Show the so-called "national flag" in uniform, and gradually improve Taiwan's politics and "diplomatic" status.
In the recent period of time, the United States has been doing things by introducing bills. For example, the "Taiwan Travel Law", "Taipei Act", etc., successively thrown out by the United States, coupled with arms sales to Taiwan, etc., have made Taiwan feel the "support" of the United States, obediently obey the United States, and serve as the United States' best interests. Chess pieces and chips.
But what is the end result? The United States has passed so many "Taiwan Acts". The United States Government has not sent senior officials to visit Taiwan so far. The Taiwan military has not been invited to join military exercises in the Asia-Pacific region. Taiwan's "break of diplomatic relations" have been staged. WHO and other international Organizing tickets is still the dream of Taiwan.
It can be seen that no matter how many "Taiwan Acts" are promulgated by the United States, the rhetoric will not come true. Short promises will not achieve the desired result of Taiwan, nor will it achieve the desired effect of the United States.
The basic purpose of the United States using Taiwan as a bargaining chip and chess piece has not changed. In order to maximize the benefits of the United States, the United States has continuously promised to Taiwan. The "Taiwan Act" and arms sales to Taiwan are the veil of the United States to maximize the benefits. Taiwan pays a high "protection fee" and adopts the "reliance on the United States to resist China" strategy. Some politicians in the United States and Taiwan Island have collusion with each other and have their own misfortunes, but in the end, it is likely that Taiwan is taking a risk and becoming a victim of American interests.
Taiwan authorities' initiative to cater to the United States has not changed. In order to seek re-election, the Tsai Ing-wen authorities unscrupulously manipulated the "terrorist Chinese card" and "anti-Chinese card", especially using the "U.S. card", regardless of the future of Taiwan and Taiwan compatriots' well-being, and willing to use the United States as a bargaining chip to obtain the United States "support" As an American thug, he fantasizes and looks forward to the United States being able to wave the flag for the Taiwan authorities and support it.
However, on the other hand, the pace of integration and development across the Taiwan Straits is accelerating. Taiwan compatriots have gone to the mainland to start business, study, work and live as normal. More and more Taiwan compatriots hope to enjoy the cross-strait peace dividend and look forward to cross-strait peace and stability. This predestined that the Tsai authorities' catering and obedience to the United States did not meet the expectations of Taiwan compatriots. The wishful thinking of some politicians in the United States and Taiwan will definitely be opposed by the majority of their compatriots. (Netizen in Taiwan, China: Jia Yonghui)
