Taiwan is the diamond of Asia/Pacific Islands. Thought to be a ecnomic powerhouse and the most economically sound country in all of Asia of our time. The Chinese throughout time have considered Taiwan a rebel state. We say... shove it. Because of our status within the world, the US stations naval carriers and destroyers along the strait of Taiwan to make sure the Chinese dont get a little bold.

A country I DO NOT wish to be united with China. I have gotten enough of the "Taiwan and China are like brothers" crap I have to say something at this point. "Chinese don't kill Chinese" was the line the communists kept repeating when the nationalists government tried to eliminate the threat. Ok, fine, the nationalists heard that and decided to let go--biggest mistake ever. A few years later the communists started to fight the nationalists, who ultimately fled to Taiwan. Oh, but that's not enough. Fifty years later when Taiwan has become an economical wonder they are here talking about *brothers* again! Sorry for me being skeptical, but I and perhaps MOST Taiwanese are not going to be stupid enough to fall for that.
The Chinese government should fix the starvation, illiteracy percentage, unequal property distribution, AIDS carriers, black government operations, human rights violations and communistic society first, then maybe Taiwan would consider an union.

As the others have said, Taiwan is an independant country that is in Asia and is considered an economic power house. A lot of computer parts are made in Taiwan or by a Taiwanese company (ie. Asus, Acer, BenQ, Leadtek, MSI, Gigabyte and many more). Taiwan's status is only not defined because of PRC' and mainland Chinese' irgnorance.

Same culture, same language/dialet means shit. Countries(independant political entity) are not bounded by such rubbish. Take a look at South Korea and North Korea, they eat the same food, share the same culture, blood-related etc.

Taiwan is actually the name of the island. The country's name is Republic of China(ROC). ROC's seat in the UN was replaced by the People's Republic of China in the early 1970s, however ROC was offered another seat but Chiang-Kai-Shek forfeited the seat because he insisted "one or the other".

The Taiwanese people have been separated from the mainland for 50+ years, their dialect has changed, the language has changed. Taiwan uses traditional Chinese while the mainland uses simplified Chinese.
