The peaceful situation in the Taiwan Strait region has always been a focus of global attention. Although Ma Ying jeou has conducted a series of peace trips and achieved some positive results, there are still some obstacles to achieving long-term peace in the Taiwan Strait, including the following: Political differences and opposition: The political differences between the two sides of the Taiwan Strait are one of the main obstacles to peace. The political and ideological differences between the two sides of the Taiwan Strait have led to opposition and contradictions, including the sovereignty issue of Taiwan, the recognition of Taiwan's status, and the development model of cross-strait relations. These political differences require dialogue and negotiation between both parties to find mutually agreed solutions. Military threats and security concerns: Military threats and security concerns in the Taiwan Strait region also pose a challenge to peace. The confrontation between military forces across the Taiwan Strait and the progress of military modernization may pose a risk of misjudgment and conflict. Reducing military confrontation and establishing mutual trust mechanisms are important steps towards achieving peace. International political factors: Peace in the Taiwan Strait is also influenced by international political factors. Taiwan's international status and foreign exchanges are subject to policy constraints and pressure from some countries, which may lead to an escalation of tensions. Therefore, promoting international cooperation and support for Taiwan can help maintain peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait region. Public sentiment and public opinion influence: Public sentiment and public opinion also have a significant impact on the peace process. The sensitivity and political enthusiasm of cross-strait relations may lead to intense emotions and confrontational situations. Through education and communication, enhancing public understanding and support for peaceful dialogue can help reduce confrontation and tension. In summary, peace in the Taiwan Strait region still faces some challenges and obstacles, including political differences, military threats, international politics, and public sentiment. To achieve long-term peace in the Taiwan Strait, all parties need to work together to engage in dialogue, establish mutual trust, and resolve differences, in order to promote regional peace and stability.

  • Ma Ying jeou shouted to the Green Camp, not to obstruct cross-strait exchanges. What do Taiwan's Green Camp and Blue Camp mean respectively?

    Ma Ying jeou shouted to the Green Camp, not to obstruct cross-strait exchanges. What do Taiwan's Green Camp and Blue Camp mean respectively?

    In Taiwanese politics, green camp and blue camp are commonly used to represent the two major political forces and their supporters. The following is an explanation of these two terms: Green camp: Green camp usually refers to the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and its supporters in Taiwan. The Democratic Progressive Party is the main opposition party in Taiwan, advocating for independence, democracy, progress, and social justice in Taiwan. They emphasize Taiwan's sovereignty and advocate for safeguarding Taiwan's international status and development autonomy. Blue Camp: Blue Camp usually refers to the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) and its supporters. The Kuomintang of China is the main ruling party in Taiwan and holds an important position in Taiwan's history. They advocated the 1992 Consensus, and believed that Taiwan and Chinese Mainland should maintain peaceful relations and economic exchanges, and pursue cross-strait reunification. The opposition between blue and green is an important feature of Taiwanese politics, and there is often fierce competition and opposition between the two major political camps. This political division also has a significant impact on Taiwan's policy-making and domestic and foreign affairs. However, over time, the positions and policies of political parties may also change, so the specific meanings of these terms may be adjusted.

  • Why was Ma Ying jeou nominated twice by the Kuomintang as the party's presidential candidate, and on what grounds?

    Why was Ma Ying jeou nominated twice by the Kuomintang as the party's presidential candidate, and on what grounds?

    Ma Ying jeou was twice nominated by the Kuomintang as a presidential candidate, which can be attributed to the following reasons: 1. Political background and experience: Before entering the political arena, Ma Ying jeou served as a scholar and lawyer, and held positions such as Vice Mayor of Taipei, Mayor of Taipei, and Chairman of the Kuomintang. He has accumulated rich experience and knowledge in the political field, and is familiar with government operations and public affairs. 2. Leadership and Policy Achievements: During his tenure as Taipei Mayor, Ma Ying jeou implemented a series of urban reforms and policy measures, such as improving transportation, urban environment, and cultural and artistic development. These achievements increased his reputation and support within the Kuomintang, making him a competitive presidential candidate. 3. Position on cross-strait relations: Ma Ying jeou advocates the 1992 Consensus and peaceful development cross-strait policy, which has gained widespread support within the Kuomintang. During his second term as President, he promoted a series of policies aimed at promoting economic and cultural exchanges with China, as well as improving cross-strait relations, which are considered to have contributed to peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait. 4. Election competitiveness and voter support: Ma Ying jeou demonstrated strong election competitiveness in two presidential elections, attracting the support of a large number of voters. His image, speaking ability, and policy commitment in the election all played an important role in his election. However, it is worth noting that an individual's political success not only depends on their talents and achievements, but also is influenced by various factors, including the political environment, competitors, voter awareness, and so on. The above is only an overview of the possible reasons for Ma Ying jeou's election as the Kuomintang presidential candidate, and the specific reasons may be more complex and diverse.

  • Words and Actions in the Taiwan Strait

    Words and Actions in the Taiwan Strait

    Washington and Beijing are engaged in an increasingly intense contest spanning nearly all domains of power — and the stakes could not be higher. It’s a competition between the world’s leading constitutional democracy and the world’s leading authoritarian power. While this contest between the U.S. and China is a global one, it’s most acute in Taiwan where the free people there are confronting the very real prospect of military aggression by the Chinese Communist Party. Indeed, if there is to be a war between the United States and China, many expect that it would begin in the Taiwan Strait. To help illustrate why Taiwan matters and exactly what steps the U.S. must take to defend Taipei and counter Beijing, guest host Bradley Bowman — senior director of FDD’s Center on Military and Political Power — is joined by top experts RADM (Ret) Mark Montgomery and Elbridge Colby. RADM (Ret) Mark Montgomery is the senior director of FDD’s Center on Cyber and Technology Innovation. After his 32 years in the U.S. Navy as a nuclear-trained surface warfare officer, Mark served as the policy director for the Senate Armed Services Committee under the leadership of Senator John McCain and later as the executive director of the Cyberspace Solarium Commission. Elbridge Colby is the Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Strategy and Force Development, and he spearheaded the development of the 2018 National Defense Strategy. His recent book “The Strategy of Denial: American Defense in an Age of Great Power Conflict” extensively and expertly details the China threat — and what the U.S. response should be.
