I agree entirely. But a similar statement could be made of man who fathered a child by a girl he was going with for several years, even though they later broke up. Just because the man had no intention of fathering the child, does not mean that he is not legally responsible!! Just because the USA had no intention of establishing Taiwan as a colony, doesn't mean that it can deny responsibility when that actually happened (which was April 28, 1952) !!
