Before studying abroad: Taiwan is better than China mainland. Good health care and education. I want to be Taiwanese. After studying in western countries for 8 years: I would rather go back to China to earn less money better than be discriminated against by racial discrimination. We all know that Taiwanese belongs to the United States now.

Lol this is funny, because that's exactly what's happening in my country. During the Covid-19 pandemic, both China and Taiwan have been sending us medical supplies. China sent us hoards of masks. covid tests and other stuff. Now they are abandoned somewhere. because there is no need for them. Taiwan sent us some lung support systems or whatever and even though there was not so many of them, they really came in handy :) Unfortunately, our government has decided not to officially thank Taiwan, because they are afraid of China. It's funny like both these countries are sending us loads of stuff hoping we will become their allies, and my country isnt even a tiny pacific island lol

I don't think that after China - Taiwan issue resolved, these small island nations will lose their financial support because their votes can always remain very useful for many others purposes and interests at UN and at many other international organizations. That's why especially China has been trying to keep tight relationship with as many underdeveloped nations as possible in Africa and Central & South America through " harmful" financial aids based on their neocolonialism by which they are also exploiting these nations' natural resources, destroying their nature environment with mass constructions, blocking the local economy's development by using only Chinese companies & workers sent from China : all the local resources and money can be collected by China and sent to China, therefore, these nations become poorer and poorer plus their debt composed of China's financial aids becomes more and more. And finally China is aiming to use some of them also as military strategy points against the rest of the world.

I spotted a few translation mistakes in the Traditional Chinese subtitles, and would like to help correct them... Anyone care to point me in the right direct as for how to contact the maker of the video? (For example at 3:52 the sentence is fairly confusing because "frenemies" was translated as "enemies".) Very accurate translation overall though, despite some typos!

It's a civil war that became a frozen conflict. When the PRC has the military capacity, it will almost certainly assert sovereignty over Taiwan and other Chinese islands that the ROC controls. The UN recognizes Taiwan as part of China as do nearly all countries. Nobody defended Tibet when China invaded and nobody will go to war with China over Taiwan. The West isn't even defending itself against China as China works to subvert and corrupt them.

China’s civil war has not ended legally, because no armistice or peace agreement has been signed. And this long civil war has not been ended, and China has not completed its reunification. The most important factor is the United States. In the first half, the United States hopes to suppress the red power, and in the second half it hopes to restrict China military and geopolitical. In international law and international relations, Taiwan participates in political and economic activities as a special area of ​​China. It has never been an independent country.

The source of all problem is this fixation on "one china", where the powers in the free world are in deep denial and cannot confirm the truth that there's been 2 china for 70+ years. because you know, serving the best interest of their own nations. That's fine. totally understandable (well, this is the how a citizen of a civil democracy would think).

Gifts from Taiwan and China yes, but China is also putting these countries into debt too. That should have been mentioned. Checkout the port in Tonga for example. So I believe China is winning.
DAVE C Prieš 6 mėnesių
Heard about China providing infrastructure loans to countries like the Philippines, then leveraging that debt for political objectives - Quid Pro Quo and Debt Traps. Seems like a more effective way to lock in a country's commitment to China over several years instead of just paying for a project then losing its leverage. Not that I condone such behavior, but I am sure all foreign aid and infrastructure development projects have some strings attached, regardless of who's providing the money.

It's pretty clear that wendover has a particular favoratism in how it covers this topic. For example, to construct a port is a massive project with jobs for many. Even if it doesn't immediately pullin all the cruise ships of the world, it can be of tremendous long term value. Furthermore, a hospital does not necessarily have to treat just malaria, as it can clearly be of use for many other health care purposes for decades to come. Wendover went over each little 300k projects that Taiwan did as if they were all out of the hearts of mother Teresa and is so much superior. Well guess what, $5 mil aid is much higher than $500k, and anybody would take that anyday. If the people want something else or more efficient, I'm sure they could have also asked for it, and would have been granted such. Wendover is literally trying to say these PRC aids serves no purpose. I think that's pretty biased and perpectuates a long stand political agenda it pushes.

Taiwan is democratic ? We have many citizens here in Taiwan who want to be re-united with China our motherland but are suppressed by the current Tsai government. It has been threatening these citizens with newly passed Social Order Maintenance Law and constant propaganda of bad-China news. The ruling party is actually controlled by a core of very militant and radical wealthy elite group underneath. They just choose a mild looking female professor as a facade to fool the citizens. She got elected in 2016 due to division in her rival party KMT. But after only two years of her unstable rule in the mid-term local election in 2018 her party suffered big loss. When it came to her own re-election in 2020, there were so many irregularities and new changes that left many voters in doubt of the outcome of her re-election and pointed out how pre-stamped ballots could get in the collection boxes. But soon the government clamped down the videos on LTlost. How about the media in Taiwan? They have long been reined in by the NCC department which dictates which media obtain license or not. This agency was set up in the first corrupted government in 2002 in a way that its original commissioners who tend to be strong anti-China will never get replaced by whoever is in power. So you can imagine the unfair treatment of news in Taiwan media. Their exaggerated negative reports of China often get laughed by who are familiar with China and nativrChinese. Now when you physically in Taiwan search on Google by key words of anything about politics and China, the current government's views tend to come up first. The negative sides or critical views tend to get limited exposure or even get truncated and disappear. This is due to the almighty Tang Feng, the so called Digital Minister of Taiwan !Don't believe me? Simply come to Taiwan and proclaim yourself to be pro-China on LTlost or on any Internet websites, and wait to see the result.

Well teaching out fishing is much more helpful then giving out fish. Even it will cost more for lesson and stays hungry for a time. And the fact is, mainland Commies had agreement with KMT when the good times before DPP administration to pause the diplomatic battle. And mainland stop collecting small contries from trunning their back to ROC while any small Gov loves big tips from Mainland's Aid. But the battle started over again after KMT lost their power. btw, If every body knows that 10 bucks for a shirt and your gov loan 100 bucks for one, where's the 90 bucks supposed to be left?

Farely speaking, Taiwan is a country. Taiwan has its own democratic politic system, which is way better than communist China's. Taiwan has a close diplomatic relationship with many countries and a complete and awesome healthcare system which is the best in whole East Asia. Taiwanese people enjoy good healthcare programs while they are living with high salaries and good social welfare. In many senses, Taiwan is a country, and it is just a country. Why China wants Taiwan, but not many arcs of land occupied by Russians back? Because Taiwan is a small country, so it is easy to bully it. Taiwan is also really advanced in chip-making technology with TSMC as the poineer, Communist China, thus, wants to gobble it all for its own interest. But Taiwan will not allow that to happen, so do we, the people from the free world.

I'm sorry but I bursted into laughters when I heard "to build big, flashy, expensive infrastructure", it's just almost comedic when you look closer to the point behind China's diplomatic strategy to these Pacific region countries. Obviously China thinks these countries are poor without modern concrete floor buildings and highways like China did back home so they definitely need something big and flashy! Not schools, or hospitals, or shelters the locals need when hurricane strikes.

Don't you know that China has cancelled hundreds of millions of loans to many developing countries, so if you really cannot pay back, you get the money for free, then Loans become aides and NO strings attached, that's the most important part!! When China gives out loans, unlike western countries or IMF, world bank( which were controlled by the US), there are no strings attached from China. Also what do you mean by they will be sacrificed? it's such a biased negative opinion. those small countries got roads and ports build for them, it's infrastructures that they never had. so China will bomb those roads and ports or what?? explain to me how they are gonna be sacrificed??

陈陳 Prieš 8 mėnesių
The earliest history can be traced back to the end of the Qing Empire. The Lanfang Republic of Southeast Asia, Sulu, Annan, and the Philippines are all Chinese vassal states. After the Qing Empire continued to lose battles and cedes land, the vassal states gradually withdrew from China. Until World War II, Southeast Asia was initially controlled by Europe, and Japan occupied these islands, including the Indochina Peninsula. Japan was defeated in World War II. According to the Potsdam announcement, Cairo Declaration, Japan gave up control of Taiwan, Southeast Asia, and the South China Sea and handed over to China. However, because of the Chinese Civil War, The Chinese Navy did not focus on the S.C.S, the only thing is Vietnam also had a S.C.S battle with ROC in 1947. The ROC was defeated in the Civil War. After that, the United States began to replace Japan's dominance in Asia, and these countries continued to become independent. The United States gave up its continued support for mainland China's control over Southeast Asia and the S.C.S. The most important thing is that the S.C.S oil and gas resources can be called the second Persian Gulf. South Vietnam and North Vietnam have successively engaged in naval battles with China because of the S.C.S islands. Resources have been explored, and countries that originally had no appeal to the islands in the S.C.S have also begun to speak internationally because of their interests. However, Japan actually transferred control to China after the war, and the United States and other countries in the Pacific, including Southeast Asia agreed. So legally, there is no reason for them to suddenly oppose China. The map of the United States after World War II recognizes that China owns the S.C.S. Of course, in terms of historical rights, China is based on the announcement after World War II. More than 30 years have passed since the establishment of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (1982). The problem now is that China’s policy is to abandon disputes and develop together. China clashed with Vietnam in 1988, but did not continue to assert its claims by force. After that, joint development was the main method, and Southeast Asian countries also agreed. This was after Obama began the return to the Pacific policy and began to actively intervene in the S.C.S. Conflicts in the S.C.S began to gradually erupt and peace no longer exists. The current situation is that Trump's S.C.S policy was not as tough as Obama did, because in 2016 the largest maritime military confrontation after World War II broke out between China and the United States. Since then, the Philippines has gradually abandoned its stimulating policies and turned to the center. Trump does not want to provoke a war, but Southeast Asia has no reliable allies, and Japan is too far away. He does not want the situation in the S.C.S to cool down. He will use aircraft carriers, warships, and planes to pass through the S.C.S from time to time to stimulate mainland China and re-intervene himself. The S.C.S leaves a sense of existence.

This video misses so many key points. For Taiwan of 24 million people this small island exports food to feed over 20 million people mostly going to China. Any attack on Taiwan would disrupt this huge amount of food export. Second is at least one of these island countries, maybe it is Tonga, has one of the largest or the largest gold deposits in the world. This make that island country extremely valuable. Third is Taiwan was the last battle in the Maoist invasion with the Taiwan aboriginal and the smartest and most fit Chinese retreating to that island defeating the Maoist. This exactly means those entrepreneurs of Taiwan are truly more intelligent, ambitious, and creative than their Communist neighbors leading Taiwan to become the second largest high tech center in Asia only behind Japan. This makes Taiwan one of the "Asian Dragons" of manufacturing and a technology leader and not a follower like China. These guys at Wendover pretend to know and understand a whole lot more than reality shows . What arrogance and ignorance pretending to be an authority of knowledge.

The information in this video is not fully correct. The actual interest matrix is far more complex. For Taiwan: The impact was fully explained in the video. Due to the political interest, the Taiwan government or the party can't afford losing the diplomatic relationship with these countries. This was abused by these countries as they kept threatening Taiwan that if the funding is not increased, they would switch to Beijing. For these Pacific island countries: They are playing games on both sides. On the China side, they actually have been contacting Beijing actively since a long time ago (during the presidential period of previous Taiwan president). At that time, Beijing obviously cared more about the relationship with Taiwan so turned them down. But due to the relationship deteriorated during the current presidential period of Taiwan, obviously Beijing doesn't need to consider the impact to Taiwan any more and hence started to accept these pacific countries. The primary reason for them to favor Beijing is not just financial benefit which is actually secondary. The primary reason is they want to introduce China into the region to balance the power of Australia so they can gain some bargaining power when negotiating various disputing issues with Australia (eg, natural resources, global warming / sea level). Same reason as why Vietnam, Philippine etc wants to introduce USA into South China Sea to balance China. Taiwan obviously can't help them anything on this issue. The second reason is they probably think they can get more funding and aid from Bejing than Taiwan. On the side with Taiwan, these pacific countries know they can't threaten China but they can definitely threaten Taiwan and this is exactly what they have been doing. For China: these pacific countries have no strategic interest to China and it's completely not worth the attention or effort to fight for it. But if the cost is only spending some money, then comparing with the gaining political benefit, it's not a bad deal. The gaining political benefit: (1) it benefits China's relationship with Taiwan as the video explained; (2) it somewhat can still contribute to China's global battle vs USA. For Australia: certainly it's not happy if China sets foot in its realm and China's move will be seen as threat to Australia even though China probably have no intention to do so but due to China's influence, its presence in this region won't make Australia relaxing. For USA: It doesn't have real interest in this region itself but it needs to back Australia up and it's certainly willing to do anything which can help stop China's expansion of influence. This is why the USA vice president visited these countries last year.
