AN EXCELLENT ISSUE FOR MAVERICK:

Taiwan has no right to Kosovo opinion - China (AFP, 2/18/08)

CHINA reacted angrily to Taiwan's expression of support for Kosovo's independence declaration, bluntly telling the island it had no right to offer an opinion on the subject.

"It is known to all that as a part of China, Taiwan has no right or eligibility to give the so-called 'recognition' (to Kosovo)," foreign ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao said in a statement.

Mr Liu was responding to a statement from Taiwan welcoming Kosovo's unilateral declaration yesterday of independence from Serbia.

"Self-determination is a right recognised by the United Nations, and it is the people who are masters of their nation's future," the Taiwanese foreign ministry said in a statement.


Announcing that his administration would urge the Kosovo option upon Taiwan and recognize its independence would not only put John McCain in the moral right but serve him well with the Christian and Paleo Right.

That's a rodger. Also, Effendi Obama's position that we must abide a permission slip from the Chicoms does the opposite.
