John Scott: LOL.. More Orwellian news-speak from China... The truth is that Taiwan's democracy is NOT a threat to peace, it is China's threats and missile build-up that threatens peace and stability. Taiwan's defenses just need to be strong enough so that China's leaders will know that any attack by China will NOT be painless for China. Does China really want to risk economic instability in the area?? Do they really think that will not lead to domestic political instability in China? Taiwan is a good neighbor to peaceful countries in the region. China should learn from Taiwan's example.
