That's a UN document, isn't it?

How's Taiwan's bid to become (again) a part of the UN going these days?

I've seen worse. I have had meals cooked for me by slaves. I've met women in China who were kidnapped, taken to remote areas, and sold to farmers who couldn't otherwise get a wife. I've taught Christians who were tortured for their religious beliefs in Iran.

Of course, there was that thread a while ago where some forum member was talking about the cages full of teenage slaves in Snake Alley, not that many years ago either.

yeah, from back in the days when the ROC was a member...

Taiwan was never a member, it was the ROC that was a member... and the UN reso did not refer to Taiwan, it referred to the Chiang Kaishek clique

For all intents and purposes they are the same thing.

Is that related to the Dalai clique that China are so fond of mentioning? For all your hatred of the PRC, you sound pretty much alike.

You can imagine that they are the same, but anyone who understands history and even basic international law, it is clear that they are not.

Nah, 'clique' is just a word the Chinese like to use to demonize those who oppose their autocratic regime.

Well, technically I guess Kinmen (Jinmen), Penghu, Mazu etc are part of the ROC but not on Taiwan, but it's 99% the same. Unless there's another ROC or Taiwan somewhere else in the world that no one knows about.

Republic of China was founded in 1912. Taiwan was not a part of it at the time. It was based in China. So, it is clear that the ROC and Taiwan are not one and the same.

Also, Penghu is considered part of Taiwan.

It's now 2011, not 1912. What was true then isn't necessarily true today. Today they are one and the same.

It's worthwhile noting that even though Taiwan is not represented at the UN in 2009 it ratified the two important UN covenants (the ICCPR and ICESCR). This means that all laws in Taiwan should be amended to be in accordance with the covenants which define how the principles of the Declaration of Human Rights should be put into practice.
