The balcony observer's 348th report- You won’t find on any maps 台灣就是台灣

by Tsao T-F July. 29, 2021 320 views

I prefer to say "I am from Taichung, Taiwan".

I think the compromised name "Chinese Taipei" confuses everyone. Taipei, as the capital of Taiwan, is located in the north of Taiwan. Taichung is the biggest city in central Taiwan. I live in Taichung instead of Taipei. Should I tell you that I am from Taichung, Chinese Taipei?

我寧願說“我來自台灣的台中”。

我認為“中華台北(或中國台北)”這個妥協的名字讓每個人都感到困惑。 台北做為台灣的首都,位於台灣北部。 台中是台灣中部最大的城市。 我住在台中而不是台北。 我應該告訴你“我來自中國台北的台中”嗎?

The Medal Winning Olympic Mystery Nation: Taiwan

(July 28, 2021) Chinese Taipei: The medal winning Olympic nation you won’t find on any maps (news.com.au) In almost every practical sense, Taiwan is an independent nation. Unlike the PRC, it is also proudly democratic. But Beijing claims Taiwan as its own and in recent years has become increasingly strident in its calls for the island nation to unify with China or face the threat of invasion.

Just look at what China did in Tibet, so many hundreds of thousands dead. Their human rights abuses are appalling. Mind you the West are just as bad with their colonial legacies.

They are so big, why do they want more? Why don't they leave you alone and in peace?

I have been to Taiwan and I like it very much. I have never been to Chinese Taipei and don't have any plans to. Wishing you all the best in lovely Taichung, Taiwan.

Everyone on this planet needs to support freedom and sovereignty for the people of Taiwan. We all need to push back strongly and loudly against this global threat of communism that controls over all of us worldwide.

I'll be praying for your continuing independence!
