“Blue” News

The color blue is associated both with the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT), which is the democratically elected governing party of Taiwan, and the People’s Armed Police, a paramilitary force in the party-dictatorship of mainland China.

The Olymics thus was a very “blue” event, as it featured KMT support of Beijing ’08 as well as the People’s Armed Police distrupting anti-Communist protests in the West.

Now, Michael Totten lets us know that the KMT will be inviting the People’s Armed Police to opan an office in Taiwan.

The possibility of great power war in the Pacific is evaporating before our eyes.

  1. Michael,

    Thanks for your comment.

    View from Taiwan, which has excellent commentary and an open pro-green bias, blogged about the march as well. [1]

    Taiwanese politics is split between Chinese Nationalists (the KMT / Pan-Blue ) and Taiwanese Nationalists (the DPP / Pan-Green). It is in our interests that China not use force to control China, and that Taiwan seeks for her own interests closer relations with China.
