The revelations have proven a hot topic on TV talk shows. Strangely enough, the government and the people allegedly involved remain silent. Nobody plans to sue this magazine and no government office plans to investigate how and why these illegal wiretaps were revealed at this time.
The truth of the issue is not really a sex scandal involving government officials. It is really a conspiracy. It is a warning shot by President Ma Yin-jeou’s (馬英九) administration. As we all know that Ma’s ultimate goal is to make Taiwan a part of China. The Ma administration’s strategies are:
One, in order to leave a legacy in the history of China after he leaves office in 2016, Ma has to sign a peace treaty with the president of China before 2016.
Two, before the peace treaty can become a reality a few obstacles have to be removed through the Legislative Yuan, such as passing the service trade agreement, exchanging government offices between China and Taiwan and overcoming the movement against building the Fourth Nuclear Power Plant in Gongliao District (貢寮), New Taipei City (新北市).
Three, to warn those who oppose him, including current legislators and less-than-loyal high-level government officials, that the current administration and its security offices have files of dirty laundry and will will not hestitate to expose that dirty laundry to the public if they do not obey the decisions of the administration.
A few weeks ago, in an interview with a TV talk show, Ma mentioned to the host that the “Old Ma Yin-jeou” is now coming back. He was not joking.
