Situated some 120km off the coast of south east China, the island of Taiwan was under the rule of Japan from 1895 to the end WWII. With a population of more than 23 million, it is the 51st most populous nation on earth, and one of the most highly populated islands of its size. Its capital city, Taipei, however, has a modest 2.6 million.
No one in this world has right to tell me whom I am.

Some people talk as if they walked on the moon - but in real life they don't even look at the stars . I've been living in Taiwan already for 7 years - what beautiful scenery - amazing people - awesome country .

Taiwanese terrorism is on the rise the sports field has become a battlefield of imposters not far removed from the pilots killers in september 11 2001 all for the prophet Buddha. Taiwan once scarred for scandalous baseball has
done it again, this time in the center of the world, NYC, .

Taiwan is not China
Trent 30th November 2009
Taiwan in its own right is an independent nation. UN could not deny the existence. If UN recognition is the requirement for a country, Switzerland was not a country before 2002( Switzerland joined UN on 2002). The UN recognition is only the membership of an international org, that's it.
PS. For the Chinese comes here, please use correct grammar.

I just happen to know Chinese and Taiwanese History, and I think that Taiwan is an Independent country, and should remain that way, China would be only too lucky if Taiwan accepted, to join them they just want Taiwan for a big name because Taiwan is a pretty successful Country. Whereas Taiwan doesn't need China!
