大船入港、台灣準備好未?

 

七月一日標誌著二0一七年上半年已經結束,香港移交給中國也告廿週年。二十年前,鄧小平承諾說,至少有五十年的時間,香港將維持不變,馬照跑,舞照跳。

 

在回歸二十週年的慶祝大會上,中國國家主席習近平發表了非常尖銳的演講,他說:「香港是一個多元社會,對一些具體問題存在不同意見,甚至重大分歧並不奇怪,但如果陷入泛政治化的旋渦,人為製造對立、對抗,那就不僅於事無補,而且會嚴重阻礙經濟社會發展。任何危害家主安全的活都是碰底不允。這是對獨立運動,或其他所謂反華分子的警告,不要挑釁中央政府的權威。」

 

東方之珠、香港人曾被允諾自一九九七年至二0四七年在所謂的「一國兩制」下至少有五十年的自由生活,但現在已成泡影無效。六月卅日中國外交部發言人陸康說:「我想強調,香港是中國的特別行政區,香港事務屬於中國內政。一九八四年的《中英聯合聲明》就中方恢復對香港行使主權和過渡期有關安排作了清晰劃分。現在香港已經回歸祖國懷抱廿年,《中英聯合聲明》作為一個歷史文件,不具有任何現實意義,對中國中央政府、對香港特區的管理也不具備任何約束力。英方對回歸後的香港沒有主權,沒有治權,也沒有監督權,希望上述人士認清現實

 

陸康發言直截了當,向世界特別是台灣發出了非常明確的信息,中國政府的承諾根本就是廢話瞎扯青菜講講。一九五一年五月廿三日,中國與西藏簽署了十七條協議,截至目前所謂西藏和平協議六十六年後,西藏人仍然冒著生命危險,翻越世界最高山路投奔自由。這清楚地表明,西藏問題沒有解決,他們在自己家鄉,為追求有尊嚴、自由生活和工作的爭扎依然存在,對抗態勢仍在增長。

 

中國自稱是世界中心的國家,在吞併西藏、香港和南中國海後,目前聚焦台灣。中國以扭曲歷史,而不是合法的國際法律或條約來宣誓台灣主權。中華人民共和國自一九四九年成立以來,從來沒有任何一個時刻擁有過台灣,即使是中華民國目前管治台灣,但卻從不曾擁有主權。中華民國和中華人民共和國,都無法提出,任何擁有台灣主權的法律文件。

 

遺憾的是,一些台灣南北精英、受過高等教育,卻深信台灣是中國不可分割的一部分。台南市長賴清德說他:「親中愛台」。台北市長柯文哲說:「我們是兩岸一家親,兩岸命運共同體,如果家庭和睦,就會繁榮昌盛。」聽起來中國人還住在一個,三四代人同堂的古老大宅院。然而,這個世界已經完全不一樣,現在孩子長大了,結婚,搬出去擁有自己的家庭。他們不再與老朽在同一屋簷下,住同一個家庭。

 

中國根本不擁有台灣的主權,台灣也不屬於中國。台灣和中國雖有相同的語言,但並不必然要被約束在同一個屋簷下,組同一個家庭。看看拉丁美洲人,他們有共同的語言西班牙語,卻不局限於一個國家,而是很多國家。看中東,他們雖有相同語言阿拉伯語,但卻組成許多國家。英語雖是英國和美國的共同語言,但他們是同一個家庭,同一個國家嗎?不,他們不是。當今世代,世界有多元國家和多族裔國家。那些把台灣和中國塑成一個國家或一個家庭者,根本就沒反映事實,也看得出他們缺欠現代世界史觀。

 

六月廿九日,美國參議院軍事委員會通過了一項決議,同意「美國海軍軍艦可常規停靠台灣的高雄或其他任何合適港口,美國太平洋司令部也可接受台灣提出的進港要求」。同一天美國國務院宣佈,批准向台灣出售十四點二億美元的武器。這意味著台灣和美國有很特殊的關係,對美國而言,台灣現狀,是指世界上只有一個中國,今天由中華人民共和國正式代表,而台灣不是中國的一部分。這就是美國的一個中國政策,完全不同於中國的一個中國原則,它硬指台灣屬於它的一部分。

 

美國海軍陸戰隊很快,即將於今年駐守,台北內湖的美國在台協會新大樓,現在該是台灣人認真審視,二戰結束後台美關係的時候了。美國根據「舊金山和平條約」,被授權為台灣的主要佔權國。美國對台政策依據,其一是三個聯合公報,專責處理那些,自認是中國人的中華民國流亡政府事宜。另一依據就是「台灣關係法」,專責處理那些,自認是台灣人的台灣澎湖島上住民事宜。

 

美國早於一九七九年,就白紙黑字昭告天下,正式終止承認中華民國,只承認台灣管理當局。但台灣始終穿著,中華民國流亡政府的大衣。台灣是二戰結束以來,美國的一項未完成任務。現在看來,山姆大叔已經設定議程,要來處理這個早已逾期,尚未完成的任務。大船要入港,台灣準備好未?

Is Taiwan ready?

 

July 1 marked the first half of 2017 was gone and also the 20th anniversary of Hong Kong handed over to China. Twenty years ago, Deng Xiaoping(鄧小平)promised Hong Kong would remain the same unchanged for at least 50 years that horse racing would continue and the dancing party would keep going.

 

At the ceremony of handover 20th anniversary Chinese President Xi Jinping(習近平)delivered a very tough speech he said, “Hong Kong is a popular society with different views and even major differences on some issues but making everything political or deliberately creating differences will severely hinder Hong Kong’s economic and social development. Any attempt to endanger China’s sovereignty and security, challenge the power of the central government or to use Hong Kong to carry out infiltration and sabotage against the mainland is an act that crosses the redline and is absolutely impermissible. It’s a warning to the pro-independence orother so-called anti-China elements to not challenge the authority of thecentral government.”

 

The pearl of east, Hong Kongers were promised to live a more freedom life style for at least 50 years, from 1997 to 2047 under the “one country, two systems”, but it is voided now. On June 30, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang(陸康)said, “I would like to emphasize that Hong Kong is a special administrative region of China and Hong Kong’s affair is China’s internal affairs… Now that Hong Kong has returned to its motherland for 20 years, the Sino-British Joint Declaration, as a historical document, no longer has any practical significance, and does not have anybinding effect on the Chinese central government’s management of the Hong Kong.The British side has no sovereignty over Hong Kong after the handover, nor power to rule or power to supervise. [We] hope that people could understand the reality.”

 

Lu’s statement was straight forward and sent a very clear message to the world especially Taiwan that Chinese government’s promise is a BS nothing but a lie. May 23, 1951 China signed the 17-point Agreement with Tibet, as of today sixty six years after the so-called peaceful liberation of Tibet, Tibetans still risk their lives by negotiating the highest mountain in the world to escape to freedom. This clearly illustrates that for the Tibetan people the issue of Tibet is not over and their struggle to live and work in dignity and freedom in their own homeland still continues and the spirit of resistance grows.

 

China calls itself as the center nation of the world dreaming to rule over the whole global, after annexed Tibet, Hong Kong and South China Sea now targeting at Taiwan. China claims the sovereignty of Taiwan by a twisted history not by a legitimate international law or treaty. There is no any single moment that Taiwan owned by PRC since its establishment in 1949, even ROC currently governing over Taiwanbut it never owns the sovereignty. Neither ROC nor PRC can provide any legal document owning the sovereignty of Taiwan.

 

Unfortunately, someTaiwanese elites are well educated to believe that Taiwan is an unalienable part of China. Tainan mayor William Lai(賴清德)said, affinity China love Taiwan. Taipei mayor Ko Wen-je(柯文哲)said, “we are of one family, share a community of common destiny and will prosper if the family is harmonious”. It sounds like Chinese still live in an ancient big courtyard house with three or four generations. Well, the world is totally different now kids grew up married and moved out to have their own families. They are no longer under the same roof in a same family.

 

China does not own Taiwan’s sovereignty and Taiwan is not belonged to China. Taiwan and Chinashare the same language but they are not necessary to be bound in a same family under the same roof. Look at the Latin Americans they share the common language Spanish not under one nation but many. Look at the Middle East they share the same language Arabic but forming a lot of countries. English is the common language spoken by the British and the USA, are they the same one family, one nation? No, they are not.  In modern world there are multinational states and multiethnic states. Those who refer Taiwan and China are of one nation or one family simply not reflecting the fact they don’treally up to date of their knowledge of the modern world history.

 

June 29, the US Senate Committee on Armed Services passed a provision that would re-establish regularvisits by US Navy vessels to Kaohsiung or “other suitable ports” and allow the US Pacific Command to “receive ports of call by Taiwan.” On the same day the US Department of State announced a planned a US $1.42 billion arms sales to Taiwan. That means Taiwan and the USA have a very special relationship. To the US the status quo of Taiwan, there is only one China in the world, it is officially represented by the PRC today, but Taiwan is not part of China. This is the US’one China policy totally different to PRC’s one China principle that claimsTaiwan is part of it.

 

The US marines to be soon posted at new AIT compound in Taipei this year it is time for Taiwanesetaking seriously to review the Taiwan-US relationship after WWII. The US has been authorized as the principal occupying power of Taiwan under the San Francisco Peace Treaty. One leg of the US policy to Taiwan is the Three Joint Communiqués dealing with the exiled government ROC issue for those who identify themselves as Chinese. The other leg is the Taiwan Relation Act dealing with Formosan and the Pescadores Islanders for those who identify themselves as Taiwanese.

 

The US has officially derecognized ROC by black and white document TRA and recognized only thegoverning authority of Taiwan since 1979. But, Taiwan keeps dressing in the exiled government ROC jacket. Taiwan is the American unfinished business sincethe end of WWII. Now, it looks like Uncle Sam has set the agenda to take care of this overdue unfinished business. The US Navy vessels are coming, but is Taiwan ready?
