If Chairman of the Chinese Communist Party (and also President of the People’s Republic of China) Hu Jintao and Chairman of the Chinese Nationalist Party (and also President of the Republic of China) Ma Ying-jeou can sign a peace agreement between their parties, ending the Chinese Civil War, they should both earn the Nobel Peace Prize.
If such an events happens, the wise leadership of Presidents Clinton, Bush, and Obama on intenrational matters will be contributing factors to that peace.
Currently both the Communists and the Nationalists are acting in ways that are embarrasing to themselves. So, for example
- The Communists react to a failed take-over of Rio Tinto by launching a criminal investigation
- The Nationalists react to regaining control in free-and-fair elections by sentencing the former President to life
Hopefully, both the Communists and Nationalists can continue to mature, and put peace (and their peoples interests!) first.
