It is not better to vote for china! You know what you will be missing if you join china, Freedom to speak, Freedom to vote, Freedom to criticize! You are Taiwanese !! That's right according to a research poll!
You may be nervous at times because of the bully across the strait, but the whole neighborhood has the same feeling and so most of us are on your side. Please do not join china because you won't be happy! Do not listen to the false statements from the CCP and their 50 cent warriors on this website!
Go out and vote, defend your democracy and your way of life! Long Live Freedom!!

If you want to twist one wrong fact, that's fine.
The Japanese have been going to Yasukuni since the late 19th century. You wrongly assume that everyone in Japan goes there just to honor those that were convicted in the Tokyo Trial.
Every country has war memorials, the main purpose is to remember those that we have lost.

@ awa no Gaijin and stephen chin
The truth is that Taiwan was a independent free republic nation before Japan colonized it for 50 years and ended its sovereignty.
Why should Taiwan trouble Japan? Does Japan want to colonize Formosa again?
You guys live so in the past. That all happened over 70 years ago.
I often meet my Taiwanese colleagues and I having been raised in the West, asked them about Taiwan's colonization openly over dinner one night. There were some negative aspects as with all forms of colonization but they said that living standards, education, population, infrastructure and standard of living improved greatly. They ended the night saying "The past is the past!!"
Japan has a great relationship with Taiwan, and when my Japanese colleagues and I go to Taiwan for business, there is no animosity towards them about the past.
Taiwan is a free independent country and they certainly don't want to be under the control of the CCP .

Your comment is full of holes.
Solitary confinement? ... deprived of contact with his family? The courts trusted Ghosn and allowed him to live in an apartment where his wife and children came to visit him. He was even able to walk to a hotel 1km away to plan his escape.
The Humanitarian Crime is that Ghosn is living like a fat cat while 80% of Lebanon's population is classified as poor.
-2 ( +7 / -9 )
Can't believe some people still think that Ghosn is innocent. If he really wanted to prove his innocence he would face the charges that are against him in Japan and in France. He would man up like Greg Kelly. But, as Ghosn's actions show by running away to Lebanon, he has done a lot of questionable things with Nissan's and Renault's money.
The Taylors and the flight crew got what they deserved.
Watched the docu on Netflix about Ghosn, 3.5 out of 5, but shed more light on Ghosn's case.

Hmmmmm.... Why do they need to listen. what business is it of theirs?
Hmmm, maybe you should read the article again before waffling!!
They need to stay neutral and independent.
That's not how china plays when it makes side deals to persuade Pacific Island countries to not recognize the independence of Taiwan.

Taiwan has never been a part of the CCP.
It is an independent country that can make it's own decisions!!
As mentioned above, the provoker is China.

Early Jackie Chan movies in the 80s and 90s were good and entertaining to watch. Now, unfortunately JC just makes propaganda movies for the CCP. (Yawn, Will pass on this movie!!)
The PLAN (People's Liberation Army Navy) needs all the good publicity it can get, especially with all the maritime and territorial disputes it has with many Asian countries. Also, with it's contest with the US and other countries in the Asia Pacific area.

The only one undermining peace and stability and bringing aggression into the area is china!!

Taiwan has never been under the control of the CCP, so it is not chinese territory!!
Taiwan is an independent country!!!

I think the overreaction is coming from you.
Kids still can go to school.
People can still go to work.
Limit gatherings up to 10 people in Auckland. Up to 100 in other cities.Wear a mask on public transportation.
It all seems reasonable during these tough times of COVID-19. Better to be safe than sorry.

"Benny the Demon" (Nickname given by Hong Kong people)
No, the nickname is used by CCP sympathizers such as yourself.
Don't insinuate that Hong Kongers call him this. Benny Tai is a well respected academic in Hong Kong who has spend nearly 30 years with the University of Hong Kong.
He has mentioned that he doesn't blame the university for his firing, but that authorities above the university have pushed for the decision. And we all know who that authority is!!!
Ganbare Hong Kongers!!

@ Steve Anderson ( or actually my highly educated chinese friend)
Good try Steve !! But I won't play this ping pong game of words with a mouthpiece of the CCP.
US of terror - You wrote this 4 times, you must hate the USA.
Terrorists of Hong Kong - No one in the media uses this term except the CCP.
left out the part where China attacked and occurred, brutally, Japan. - Maybe you were too angry to notice your mistake.
Australia is the yapping lapdog of the US of Terror. - Wow, all this rude name calling!! You are an angry person. It's very Wolf Warrior Diplomacy-like!!!!

It is unwise for you to say anything as most of what you write doesn't make any sense!!
You fail to recognize that your own country, the middle kingdom, is disrupting peaceful harmony globally with its aggressive, selfish and unfair behavior in many places around the world.
Shall I point out a few?
Trade relations with the US
Trade and racism relations with Australia
Bullying of Taiwan
South China Sea disputes with Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam and more countries
Broken promises to the people of Hong Kong
Territorial claims with India
Territorial claims with Japan
Trade disputes with the EU
Discrimination of Africans in Southern Chinaand more. . . .
You can search online about any of the listed topics through a variety of international media outlets except the notorious Global Times.

Well, you are free to believe that so many are unemployed! But as the article suggests:
Prospects of a prolonged crisis have encouraged Japanese consumers to buy and make reusable, washable versions.
Initially, Yanai wasn't interested in jumping on the bandwagon to make masks. But because of repeated calls by consumers to make the masks using the same materials as the effective AIRism products, any company president isn't going to ignore the requests of his consumers who praises his products is he.

My wife, her 2 friends and I arrived in front of the store in Tennoji at 9:15am, there were already about 300 people there waiting. At bang on 10am, the shopping center doors opened and everyone marched in an orderly line to the mask collection counters. We were limited to one packet of 3 masks per size (S, M. L), so we got one of each, marched to the self check out counters and were done by 10:12am. When we left the store, it was surprising to see the waiting line of at least 500 people continuing outside the shopping center.
The masks are a good fit around the face and feel comfortable so far, will have a better verdict at the end of the day.

Doesn't matter, they were Japan-based reporters who wrote down the factual misrepresentation by Japanese foreign ministry.
So, your report from a Korean Government sponsored TV broadcast is more accurate than news reports from several international agencies (Reuters, Bloomberg and even the WTO website). Yeah,... right. Sounds like a page from the CCP.
Let me ask you this question. Japan took Korea to WTO to have the anti-dumping tariff on pneumatic valves overturned. The anti-dumping tariff stands as the result of WTO ruling. So who do you think won here?
Korea hasn't won, it has admitted that it still won't change it's policy even after the WTO ruling. 15 months after the ruling which will be near the end of 2020, Japan has the right to bring Korea once again to the WTO for non-compliance to the ruling and take retaliatory measures.

@ Samit Basu
"That article you linked isn't international.
Reporting by Stephanie Nebehay and Makiko Yamazaki in Tokyo
*In other word, Japan-based reporters reported simply reported what Japanese government claimed, which was factually incorrect. Japan sought to overturn the anti-dumping tariff and the *WTO validated Korea's anti-dumping tariff, hence Japan lost the WTO case."
What are you mumbling about??
Yes, Japan based reporters working for Rueters which is an international news agency based in the UK.
"Japan has never won a WTO case against Korea to date, its 0:7 so far. Make this 0:8."
Your reporting is full of holes, if you read the article and searched for any other articles from other international news agencies apart from Japan based or Korean based agencies, you would have noticed this immediately!!
Anyway, please do some research before you comment!! Saves everyone time reading FN!!!
