Letter: Ma ready to capitulate

By Chen Ming-chung

On the recent Hardtalk program ("Ma defends KMT positions on BBC," Feb. 23, page 3) BBC reporter Stephen Sackur should have asked Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Chairman Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) if what he really intended was for Taiwan to achieve peace through surrender.

Ma stated that unification could occur "when the conditions are ripe." Does that mean when the Chinese Communist Party is militarily strong enough, and Taiwan is weak enough, thanks to his party's obstruction of the arms purchase?

Or that only then should Taiwanese have the right to choose their own future? Does that mean Taiwanese should not have the right to choose now?
