Stepping In Puddles

My simmering contempt for Taiwanese nationalist posers boils over from time to time. The Taipei Times editorial team never gets tired of printing the same old "Hey, Taiwan isn’t China" letters as if that had anything to do with a principled defence of freedom. What it really means is nothing deeper than "hey look at me, I'm cool because I support Taiwan".
