EDITORIAL: ECFA: An instrument of betrayal

By “all citizens,” then, does Ma mean all 1.3 billion Chinese?

Ma’s rhetoric and trickery have gone largely uncontested for almost a year. Now, he is creating an irreversible trend toward unification using hypnotic slogans that entice the unwary. Once this goal’s foundations, such as an ECFA, are complete, Taiwan will be helpless when dealing with China and there will be no turning back. Look at Hong Kong: Apart from having their economic fantasies shattered, Hong Kong’s residents can’t even elect their own chief executive.

This leads to the key question: Will Taiwanese simply stand around as Ma sells Taiwan to Beijing?
