It's been some time but I think I want to get back to this. This is a place where I can post opinions which I can come back to in the future and analyze whether I was right all along. See you soon!

In the incident wherein a Chinese fisherman was shot by Philippine Coast Guard personnel, the President of Taiwan, who's approval rating is very very low, did the most statesmanlike act. Sans any complete report and only the testimony of the surviving fisherman, the President threatened the Philippines with war by ordering military exercises aimed at the smaller economy, banning the importation of Philippine labor, etc. etc. In incidences such as this, a leader is supposed to calm his people, call for the truth and stabilize the situation. Instead, Filipinos are now being harmed in Taiwan. No thanks to the hawkish government. When China comes to claim you back, I am not so sure I will sympathize with you... bullies!
