There’s a Presidential election in Taiwan at the turn of the year. The result will be the status quo or Pro-China. Either way, no independence means no invasion from mainland to the disappointment of the U.S.

You keep claiming that the US is starting a war but nobody is buying it.

The thing that could turn this game around is a Trump victory. Trump is unpredictable enough. Any President other than Trump (including Newsome, Haley, DeSantis) is just going to continue the same policies that the US has had for decades. However, Trump is volatile and he could easily recognize Taiwan independence or throw Taiwan under the bus to the PRC. He is able do both.

You are right that Trump could surrender even more than Ukraine.

"Our film's (Chinese) name is 'Pineapple' and Taiwan's audiences have told me that pineapple means good luck" in Taiwanese culture, Hu said in a brief televised interview.

Yes, Taiwanese culture, not Chinese culture. She recognizes the difference

@lostrune2 The original text says nothing about the Taiwan audience, but good try! 金馬60/48歲胡伶「細肩帶低胸」身材超兇 捧鳳梨走紅毯

胡伶身穿黑色細肩帶亮片禮服,胸前深V設計,將好身材展露無遺,值得注意的是,她手上拿著跟電影名一樣的鳳梨,楊千霈好奇用意,胡伶表示這有「旺旺」之意,希望透過鳳梨增加好運氣

Hu Ling wore a black sequined dress with spaghetti straps and a deep V design on the chest, showing off her good figure. It is worth noting that she was holding a pineapple with the same title as the movie. Yang Qianpei was curious about the intention. Hu Ling said it was "wangwang" Meaning, hoping to increase good luck through pineapples

That’s not what this is really about though. It’s politics, economics and Straight relations.

China banned the pineapples from Taiwan much like the durian from the Philippines.

It turns out the US also has huge barriers against Taiwanese agricultural products and is trying to get Taiwan to import American beef with antibiotics. This may be why the DPP is doing badly in the south.

The US is doing exactly what China would do. Leverage.

Pineapples may decide the Presidential election in January.

My comment might be infamous but am disappointed Asian particularly stars and rich&famous have their god given natural beauty altered by surgery and artificially enhanced to resemble European mainly nose&eyes. It's practically impossible to distinguish movie starts since they mostly look alike especially Korean starts. Over many decades we are influenced by beauty of European features while don't appreciate Asian looks. We must promote and glamorize Asian look to get away from desire of nose&eye. Time to promote Asian beauty! Be proud of who we are, beautiful people.

I believe the pineapple is also symbolic as China banned the sale of pineapples from Taiwan for a time in the wake of the Pelosi visit.
