Q: The U.S sells arms to Taiwan: Good or Bad?

China is crying about it and says it will hurt relations. I'm sure the U.S thought of this before they took the cash. It's not the first time but this time it's a billion dollar deal. Should China mind it's own or do they have a right to be upset and a reason to be worried?

Taiwan and China will eventually be reunified. This is inevitable. But Taiwan needs to maintain a comparable level of military strength so it can come to negotiations with a favorable position. If Taiwan is weak then China could just put a blockade on the island until they surrender.

I believe Machiavelli said it best. "For among other evils which being unarmed brings you, it causes you to be despised."

If Taiwan does decide to seek reunification, it'll be on the condition of partial autonomy similar to Macau and Hong Kong. So yes, good for Taiwan, embarrassing for China, and doesn't really mean anything for the US. All that money from the weapons sale will go to defense industries and not the US government.

I think it is less about a strategic alliance now and more about keeping the military Industrial complex happy. After all, they are the biggest arms dealer in the world...big business.
Lots of high paying jobs and very little outsourcing.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
