台灣何時出頭天?

波頓長期關心台灣

於6月23日出版的「事發之室、白宮實錄」作者、美國白宮前國家安全顧問波頓,在書中提到一段有關台灣的描述,他說川普總統最愛指著筆尖筆心,將它比喻成台灣;然後指在白宮橢圓辦公室他的辦公桌說,那就是中國。波頓將這個比喻詮釋為,這就是川普對美國另一個民主盟友的承諾和義務。在有心媒體的操作下,似乎暗示台灣,是川普總統拿來對抗中國的一顆棋子,就像簽字筆一樣,用完隨手可丟。是這樣嗎?

波頓長期來一直都是大力支持台灣,主張給予台灣雙重承認。他曾於2000年2月3日投書台北時報 (Taipei Times: https://www.taipeitimes.com/News/insight/archives/2000/02/03/0000022655) ,在「Duel recognition acknowledges reality認清事實雙重承認」一文中呼籲,給予台灣明確、不模糊支持,將是最符合美國的利益US interests would be best served by giving Taiwan its unambiguous support。他在新書中的這一段話,其實很清楚地讓台灣人民有機會知道,原來台灣是白宮美國政府日常作業,筆尖的核心價值。

川普是近年來最友台美國總統

川普是近三十年來,自柯林頓政府以降截住目前,最友台及捍衛台灣權益的美國總統。他始終以美國利益為優先,一再鼓勵廠商自中國撤資回流美國。雖談不上圍堵中國,但絕不是承襲過去民主黨們一味對中開放。想想這個世界,如果沒有川普一再堅持美國優先,嚴厲制裁中國的霸凌和攏斷,那真不敢想像會是什麼樣子。

6月17日,美國國務卿龐培歐和中共中央政治局委員、中央外事工作委員會辦公室主任楊潔篪在美國夏威夷會面,前後持續了約7個小時。有關涉及台灣議題,楊潔篪照本宣科強調,世界上只有一個中國,台灣是中國不可分割的一部分。一個中國原則是中美關係的政治基礎。中方捍衛自身核心利益的決心和意志堅定不移。中方要求美方切實恪守,一個中國原則,和中美三個聯合公報規定,慎重妥善處理涉台問題。

中國不解美中公報

美方似乎早就算準了,中方一貫指東說西、不切實際的耍嘴皮。所以只強調,中國必須信守對國際社會的承諾、給予港人自治,公開務實坦誠疫情。表面上看來是各說各話、毫無交集,但實際內容,相信雙方都已清楚表達立場,把該講的話、要傳達的信息完整帶給對方。哪天如有任何擦槍走火,那就怨不了誰了。川普更於龐楊兩人會談期間,簽署了維吾爾人權政策法案,以行動追究中共侵害維吾爾族人權的責任並予以懲罰。

中國老是在記者會上,一再重複一中原則、三個聯合公報,其實他們根本就不懂,或說根本就不尊重,美國的一中政策。那是指,美國遵照聯合國第2758號決議,承認世界上只有一個中國,那個中國是由中華人民共和國為唯一合法代表;但也依據聯合國安全理事會第530次會決議,指明台灣根本就不是中國的一部分。楊潔篪真是睜眼說瞎話,中華人民共和國成立於1949年,當時並沒有獲得美國的承認。一直到1972年2月28日,才和美國簽署上海公報,認知中國對台灣的立場 。1978年12月25日簽署建交公報,美國承認中華人民共和國為中國唯一合法政府,兩國也同時重申,反對任何國家在亞洲建立霸權的共識。1982年8月17日簽署八一七公報,規範逐步減少美國對台灣的武器出售。

美中建交公報不認中華民國

有趣的是,在簽署上海公報時,1972年美國所承認是駐守台灣的中華民國。到了1979年1月1日建交公報生效時,美國已另紙台灣關係法,白紙黑字不再承認中華民國,明文昭告世人台灣不屬中國。八一七公報所談對台軍售,其實已與中國毫無交集;相反地美國在舊金山和平條約授權下,始終善盡職守,維護台灣的防衛與安全,繼共同防禦協定後,隨即推出台灣關係法及陸續生效的台灣安全加強法來把關。

令人遺憾的是,台灣不隸屬中國一事,除了利令智昏的中華人民共和國主政者,不學無術毫無所悉外,中華民國歷屆民選總統,個個都是高學歷學有專精者,亦是滿頭霧水一臉無知,相繼提出中華民國在台灣、中華民國是台灣、台灣屬中華民國,甚至到今天主政者,仍然堅持中華民國台灣是2300萬台灣人民的最大公約數。他們都不約而同,把台灣與中華民國緊密掛鉤。是這樣嗎?

主體意識由下而上

2005年12月17日,我曾致函當時主政的陳水扁總統,提出六項訴求與呼籲:一、務必釐清台灣現時的國際地位。二、「有效統治」絕不等同「擁有主權」。三、和平條約雖早已簽訂,但台灣的軍事佔領狀態卻仍未終止。四、台灣人民寄望閣下的「有夢最美、希望相隨」。五、與中國統一,不是台灣人民把政權託付予您的期許與授權。六、信守承諾堅持改革、勇敢承擔,扛起台灣興衰存亡之重責大任。《如附件一》

約兩週後,接獲陳總統於2005年12月30日簽名回函,說明:『在「中華民國」仍是當下台灣內部較大之共識下,水扁前特別提出「中華民國是台灣」之台灣主權發展四階段論述。此議容或不盡人意,然較諸過去政府所提之「中華民國在台灣」之論,已呈躍進。…隨著政治民主化,台灣主體意識確立、並成為社會之主流價值之後,新的國家認同,也將一步步透過民間力量,由下而上自然形成。只要國家認同問題獲得解決,國人有清楚敵我之分、內外之別,則其他問題,相信均可迎刃而解。』《如附件二》

台灣不屬於中華民國

從陳水扁的回函,可以隱約看到行政高層,對於台灣國家認同的困境與無奈,他呼籲需要靠由下而上的民間力量,人民覺醒才有可能達陣。然而環顧時局,當下台灣政壇所關心的,儘是如何勝選執政,鮮少帶頭探詢,台灣今日真實國際地位。政府至少有義務告知台灣人民,是什麼時候、依什麼國際條約,從日本政府手中接受台灣領土主權,而國民大會或立法院,又是什麼時候開會,將台灣與澎湖併入中華民國版圖,成為中國不可分割的一部分領土。目前台灣在國際社會,所遭受的種種挫折和打壓,都源自這個錯誤的命題與假設。問題是,涉事者無人肯務實面對,解鎖台灣在二次大戰後,遭受軍事佔領,去落實台灣應有的國際地位。而只算計,如何用虛假中華民國空殼扶冠自爽。

其實美國早於1979年,在台灣關係法中,即已明白告訴台灣人,台灣不是中華民國,美國只承認台灣治理當局,不再承認中華民國。雖然波頓在他的新書中,提到擔心台灣可能會淪為,繼庫德族之後,被美國川普政府放棄的對象。其實波頓絲似乎多慮了,因為自二次大戰後,台灣就一直都是,美國在西太平洋最重要的軍事部署之一。所以,不論是民主黨或共和黨主政,都不會、也不可能忽視台灣,在第一島鏈的戰略位子。更何況還有舊金山和約的授權承擔,及台灣關係法的規範約束。

舊習陋規出頭天難

真正令人擔心的是,台灣社會要等到什麼時候,才能朝野合作,務實來探討自身的法理國際地位。堅持中華民國者,請明白坦誠地告訴人民,他或她要把2300萬台灣人帶到那裡去,到中國去認祖歸宗,把習大大趕下檯,取而代之?或只想在台灣掛羊頭賣狗肉,繼續欺騙壓榨台灣人民?其實,不論台灣政治地位最後如何定位,獨立後叫台灣國或被統一後叫中華民國、中華人民共和國,中華民國都只是過客,它的階段性歷史命運已經告一段落。希望,想振興中華的中國人,儘早回歸中國懷抱,去與習大大建設他偉大的中國夢。留下來的,就應該以台灣的安身立命為依歸。

2005年至今, 15年已經過去了,台灣的國際地位依然妾身未明,入不了聯合國等國際組織,我們似乎依然在原地踏步空轉了15年。昔日民進黨人對台灣的未來有諸多的理想與抱負,如今他們已二次勝選而且完全執政,卻依然延續舊制陋規,絲毫看不到氣象一新的改革,考試、監察院依舊,三權分立的期許束之高閣,看來要期待台灣驗明正身進階國際,這回可是又要落空了。只是不知當今的主政者,究竟要把台灣導向何方,想要帶給咱後代子孫什麼樣的願景和懷念?何昔日之芳草兮,今直為此蕭艾也?豈其有他故兮,莫好脩之害也。台灣何時出頭天?難!難!難!

【專文】台灣何時出頭天?
文/謝鎮寬(加州、海沃) 2020-06-24 16:38

When will be the day for Taiwan?

Bolton has long cared of Taiwan

The author of "The Room where it happened: A White House Memoir” published on June 23, John Bolton, former National Security Advisor for US President Trump, mentioned a description of Taiwan in the book. “One of Trump's favorite comparisons was to point to the tip of one of his Sharpie and say, 'this is Taiwan,' then point to [his desk in the Oval Office] and say, 'this is China.' So much for American commitments and obligations to another democratic ally," Bolton writes. It has been quoted by media that Taiwan is a marker pen used by Trump can be thrown away when used up. Is that right?

Bolton has long been a strong supporter of Taiwan and advocated giving Taiwan recognition. He published an article in Taipei Times on February 3, 2000 title "Duel recognition acknowledges reality", https://www.taipeitimes.com/News/insight/archives/2000/02/03/0000022655 called for US interests would be best served b giving Taiwan its unambiguous support. In the passage of his new book, he actually gave Taiwan people opportunity to know that Taiwan is the core value as the tip of a Sharpie pen in the daily work of the White House.

Trump is most friendly US President in recent years

Trump is the US President who has been most friendly to Taiwan and defends Taiwan’s rights since the Clinton administration for nearly three decades. He has always prioritized US interests and has repeatedly encouraged manufacturers to withdraw capital from China and return to America. Although it is impossible to confine China, it is by no means inherited from the past that the Democrats openly engaged with China. Just look, if this world without Trump’s repeated adherence to the US priority and severe sanctions on Chinese bullying and coercion, I really can’t imagine what it would look like.

On June 17, US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo and Yang Jiechi, a CCP Politburo Member and director of the Office of the Central Foreign Affairs Committee, met in Hawaii for about 7 hours. Regarding issues related to Taiwan, Yang reiterated as usual that there is only one China in the world, and Taiwan is an inalienable part of China. The one-China principle is the political foundation of Sino-US relations. China's determination and will to defend its core interests are unwavering. China demands that the US side strictly abide by the one-China principle and the provisions of the three Sino-US joint communiques, and handle Taiwan-related issues carefully and properly.

China does not understand the Sino-US Communique

The US seems to have been accurate for a long time. The Chinese side has always been BS and unrealistically playing tricks. Therefore, it is only emphasized that China must keep its promises to the international community, grant HK people autonomy, and be open to the pandemic. On the face of it, it seems that they have spoken their own words and there is no intersection, but in reality, I believe that both parties have clearly exchanged positions and brought the words to be conveyed and the information to be communicated to each other. One day, if there is any incident, then no one can complain. Trump also signed the Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act during the meeting between the two Yang and Pompeo, and took action to hold the CCP accountable for violations of Uyghur human rights and punish them.

China always repeats the one-China principle and the three joint communiques at press conferences. In fact, they simply don’t understand it, or say they don’t respect the US one-China policy at all. That means the US complies with UN Resolution 2758 and recognizes that there is only one China in the world, and PRC is the sole legal representative of it; but also according to the resolution of the 530th meeting of the UN Security Council, it is indicated that Taiwan is not a part of China at all. Yang was really BS and talked nonsense. The PRC was founded in 1949 but not recognized by the US until February 28, 1972, that the Shanghai Communique was signed with the US to acknowledge China's position on Taiwan; On December 25, 1978, the communiqué on the establishment of diplomatic relations was signed. The US recognized the PRC as the sole legitimate government of China. The two countries also reiterated their opposition to the consensus of any country to establish hegemony in Asia. On August 17, 1982, the August 17 Communiqué was signed to regulate the gradual reduction of US arms sales to Taiwan.

US de-recognized ROC while signed Sino-US communique

Interestingly, at time the Shanghai Communique was signed, the US recognized ROC stationed in Taiwan as legal China in 1972. When the communiqué establishing diplomatic relations with PRC on January 1, 1979 came into force, the US had attached a separate Taiwan Relations Act, officially de-recognized ROC, and it is clearly stated that Taiwan is not China. The August 17th communique talks about arms sales to Taiwan. In fact, it has no intersection with China; on the contrary, the US has always performed its due diligence under the authorization of the San Francisco Peace Treaty, maintained Taiwan’s defense and security, and immediately launched TRA after the joint defense agreement and the Taiwan Security Enhancement Act, which are in effect one after another for Taiwan’s security.

Regrettably, in addition to those PRC politicians have no knowledge of Taiwan is not affiliated with China, all the elected presidents of the ROC are highly educated and professional also confused and ignorant. They proposed ROC in Taiwan, ROC is Taiwan and Taiwan belongs to ROC. Even today, the President said Taiwan is the largest convention of the 23 million Taiwanese people. They all coincide, closely linking Taiwan and the ROC. Is that true?

Subjective consciousness from bottom up

On December 17, 2005, I wrote to former President Chen Shui-bian, who was in charge at that time, and made six appeals and appeals: First, we must clarify Taiwan's current international status. 2. "Effective control" is by no means equivalent to "own sovereignty." 3. Although the peace treaty has already been signed, the state of Taiwan’s military occupation has not been terminated. 4. The people of Taiwan hope it come true of your "dreams are the most beautiful and hopes will follow you." 5. Reunification with China is not the expectation and authorization that Taiwan people have entrusted the political power to you. Sixth, keep its promises, insist on reform, bravely undertake, and shoulder the heavy responsibility of Taiwan's rise and fall. (As Attachment 1)

About two weeks later, I received a reply letter signed by President Chen on December 30, 2005 stating: "While ROC is still the current larger consensus within Taiwan, Shui Bian specifically proposed "ROC is Taiwan" The four-stage discussion of Taiwan's sovereignty development. This may not please everybody but the opinion has made a leap forward compared to the previous "ROC in Taiwan" argument put forward by the government. …With the democratization of politics and the establishment of Taiwan’s subjective consciousness as the mainstream value of society, the new national identity will also be formed step by step through the power of the people, naturally from the bottom up. As long as the issue of national identity is resolved and the people have a clear distinction between enemies and foes, and the difference between inside and outside, other issues can be solved. (As Attachment 2)

Taiwan does not belong to ROC

Chen’s reply letter vaguely disclosed us the plight and helplessness of the senior politician to Taiwan's national identity, he called for the need for civil power from the bottom up, and people's awakening is the only possible to reach it. However, looking around the current situation, what the politician concern is how to win election and gain power, and rarely take the lead to inquire about Taiwan’s true international status today. The government is at least obliged to inform Taiwan people when and under what international treaties, Taiwan’s territorial sovereignty is transferred from the Japanese government, and when is the National Assembly or the Legislative Yuan meeting to merge Taiwan and Penghu into the territory of the ROC and become an inalienable part of China’s territory. The current setbacks and suppression of Taiwan in the international community all stem from this wrong proposition and assumption. The problem is that no one involved is willing to face it pragmatically, unlocking Taiwan’s military occupation after WWII to implement Taiwan’s international legal status. Instate, they only count how to use the false ROC shell to support the crown.

In fact, as early as 1979, the US had clearly informed Taiwan people under TRA that Taiwan is not the ROC. The US only recognizes the governing authorities on Taiwan and no more ROC. Although Bolton mentioned in his new book, that Taiwan might be the next abandoned by the Trump administration after the Kurds. In fact, Bolton seemed to worry too much, because since WWII, Taiwan has been one of the most important military deployments of the US in the Western Pacific. Therefore, neither the Democratic nor the Republican in office, they won’t ignore Taiwan’s strategic position in the First Island Chain. Not to mention the authorization of the San Francisco peace treaty, as well as the regulatory constraints of the TRA.

Under old system no way to grow

What really worries us is when will Taiwan’s society wait for cooperation between the government and the opposition, and pragmatically discuss its legal international status. Those who insist on the ROC please tell the people frankly and honestly that he or she will take 23 million Taiwanese there, go to China to recognize their ancestors, and oust Xi from power to replace him? Or just want to hang sheep's heads and sell dog meat in Taiwan and continue to deceive and crush the people of Taiwan? In fact, regardless of the final positioning of Taiwan’s political status, it is called the State of Taiwan after independence or PRC after its reunification. The ROC is just a passenger, and its staged historical destiny has come to an end. Hopefully, the Chinese who want to revitalize China will return to the embrace of China as soon as possible to build his great Chinese dream with Xi Emperor. Those who stay should rely on Taiwan’s life and health.

Since 2005, 15 years has gone by. Taiwan’s international status is still unknown and it is not possible to join the UN and other international organizations. It seems that we have remained idle for 15 years. In the past, the DPP members had many ideals and ambitions for Taiwan’s future. Although they have won the second presidential election and are fully in power now, they still continue to carry the old rules and regulations of ROC. The expectation of the separation of the three powers is still pending in the shelf, and the expecting of Taiwan identification to enroll into the international community seems go nowhere. I just don’t know where today’s politicians are going to lead Taiwan to? What kind of vision and memory they will provide for our future generations? How could these herbs, so fair in former day, now changed into mugworts grey? The reason for their fall, not far to seek, was that to tend their grace their will proved weak. Will there be a day for Taiwan soon? Tough! Tough! Tough!

張醫師轉呈

陳總統閣下:

三合一的選舉造成台灣政壇的大震撼,表面上是人民對時局的不滿與反彈,但仔細地推敲是人民對執政黨的深切期許與鞭策;因為寄望本土政黨的再成長更茁壯,所以台灣人民拿出比較高規格的尺度來衡量您的施政,一切一切的指責與批評絕非針對閣下本身,但環顧時局卻也只是閣下一人能力挽狂瀾。因此本人願冒不敬之嫌,特此提出下列建言:

一、 務必釐清台灣現時的國際地位。
閣下前些時所指「台灣就是中華民國;中華民國就是台灣」此與國際社會的認知有嚴重的出入。台灣究竟是什麼時候,根據那一紙國際條約或和約,成為中華民國的領土?環顧台灣現時政局,國親新三黨主席到北京時,都早已把中華民國拋到九霄雲外,卻只有民進黨在獨力為,早在一九四九年就被國際社會認定是流亡政府的中華民國捍衛。我等海外台灣僑民所憂慮的是,萬一那天政權再次易手時,要再去爭取「正名」則已是時不我與、回天乏術了。

二、 「有效統治」絕不等同「擁有主權」。
「Effective Control」 does not mean 「own sovereignty」。東帝文在獨立前,其主權由葡萄牙所擁有,印尼執有效統治,最後卻是東帝文獨立。台灣目前的主權實仍歸美國軍事政府所擁有,中華民國僅只是一個俱流亡代理身份所擁有的司法管轄權,那也正是為什麼前美國國務卿鮑爾,敢在公開場合聲明「台灣並未獨立,她不擁有一個獨立國家所應享有的主權」。

三、 和平條約雖早已簽訂,但台灣的軍事佔領狀態卻仍未終止。
台灣被盟軍所授權蔣介石政府的軍事佔領,並未隨著舊金山和約的簽署而結束。台北條約雖然給予台灣二十年的自主(1952-1972) ,但台灣的主權卻仍然是懸而未決,況且台北條約也早於一九七二被終止。

四、 台灣人民寄望閣下的「有夢最美、希望相隨」。
      當家做主是台灣人民四百年共同的願望,相信我們的先祖早在冒死橫渡黑水溝時, 就已下定決心要在美麗的福爾摩沙島上,為後代子孫建立一個免於戰亂、苛稅、有人權、有尊嚴的國度。要現在的台灣島民,去與一個不尊重人權、沒有集會結社自由、一黨集權專政的中國統一,是不可能的事。建立一個由台灣人民自己當家做主,被國際社會所承認的國度,或許現在仍然無法實現,要您的帶領,不要輕言放棄。
 
五、 與中國統一,不是台灣人民把政權託付予您的期許與授權。
民進黨之所以能兩度取得政權,閣下您之所以能兩度受台灣人民的信任與託付,是因為人民聽到了您在競選時給他們的承諾。但是就在您任期僅剩兩年半不到的時候,人民卻發現您多次選舉前的承諾:正名、制憲,在選舉後卻變成「做不到就是做不到」的宣示,台灣人民的焦慮與失望,個個都寫在臉上。

六、 信守承諾堅持改革、勇敢承擔,扛起台灣興衰存亡之重責大任。
      閣下與台灣人民都已從這次的選舉獲得重大的啟示,那就是為政務必要信守承諾,
      在選前閣下所信誓旦旦的拉法葉案、18% 孳息案、不當黨產案案,絕不可使之成為
     選舉的口號,選後就沒有下文。若是如此,那要如何面對緊接而來的北高市長選舉、
     立委選舉及二○○八年的大對決?屆時,台灣選民可是一句也無法聽進去。有道是
     「危機正是轉機」,期盼閣下能挺住時局力挽狂瀾,與台灣人共創美麗的家園與營造
     民主進步的未來。

以上句句是僑民的肺腑之言,若有冒犯不敬之處,有請閣下寬宥。
謹此

敬祝 閣下
政躬康泰 新春如意
