|Trump-Taiwan Call is Good for Democracy and Human Rights|
President-elect Donald Trump's short conversation with President Tsai Ing-wen of Taiwan has provoked the usual bluster and threats from the Chinese communist regime and the accusations from western 'democracies' and media that he is a loose cannon with no idea of diplomacy and that he threatens ties with China.
Breath of fresh air
Whether it was a calculated move by Trump or not, it sends a message to the communist regime that the status quo of the United States 'appeasing' the totalitarian regime may be under review.
The United States has not recognised Taiwan diplomatically since 1979, preferring to kowtow to a totalitarian communist state for economic reasons. In other words, the U.S. has ignored its own commitment to freedom and democracy, by not recognising a free and democratic Taiwan diplomatically, whilst continuing to sell arms to the beleaguered nation.
This hypocracy by the U.S. and other western so-called democracies has to change.
Why don't Taiwanese want to be part of the huge Chinese economy?
Why does the communist regime have to threaten to invade Taiwan and take over by use of force? The Taiwanese people have tasted freedom and democracy - they do not want to be controlled by a corrupt totalitarian state that will tell them how to think, speak and act without any recourse to the Rule of Law or the ballot box.
What now for the U.S.-China relationship?
President-elect Trump's conversation with President Tsai sends a message to the communist regime that he will decide which world leaders he converses with, and that their bullying diplomatic protests will be ignored.
