Hypocrisy in Taiwan

By John Scott

I am a European and I have written to my country's Ministry of Foreign Affairs about this. I agree that the ban on arms sales to China should remain. But let's not forget what happened in the wake of Tiananmen: when the rest of the world was turning their collective backs on the "butchers of Beijing," it was Taiwanese industrialists and businessmen who rushed over to China to fill the void and in so doing put Taiwan's economy and security in hock to China.
