Cai Yingwen is just blowing a whistle. Global Times: facing the mainland military exercise, Cai Yingwen has recently claimed that he has confidence in safeguarding Taiwans security. How do you think of Cai Yingwens confidence? Tang Xianglong: I think the PLAs preparations for crossing the sea are very sufficient. Today, Cai Yingwen can only play a whistle and courage, she also holds the inherent tactical thinking: the existing military preparation of the Taiwan army, although not enough to win in the decisive conflict between the two sides, will certainly bring great harm to the PLA, which will make the PLA taboo. And there is a subtext behind that, and now the DPP politicians feel that Americas political and military commitment to Taiwan is more positive than it used to be, so they believe that even if there is a military conflict, Americas involvement in Taiwan will be more reliable than in the past. In this way, some deep green have no fear in advocating Taiwan independence. Global Times: the front desk authorities hate to exaggerate the threat of force in mainland China to exaggerate a few times to arouse the revenge mood of the people of Taiwan. Tang Xianglong: This is a very interesting observation. When I analyze some political propaganda, I often say, what is emphasized does not exist. For example, if the government is promoting traffic safety, then we know that social traffic is not safe recently. When we publicize the importance of public order, we know that public order is not good. In the past continental military exercise, the Taiwan authorities have always magnified small things, such as how many missiles are aimed at Taiwan, the PLA has developed a new weapon. it seems that the people are afraid that the people are not afraid. In that atmosphere, you will feel that Taiwan has a good preparation, the peoples psychology. The endurance is very strong. But now, even if the National Taiwan office is speaking and the pertinence is very clear, Taiwan says it is a routine military exercise in an understatement way. This expression is to desalination the seriousness of the problem, and it is clear that the Democratic Progressive Party authorities are very clear that such a military exercise has a great effect on the stability of the people of Taiwan. Yes. They do not want this disturbance to increase the cost of social governance, so they will weaken the expression. Why is Lai Qingde so honest? Global Times: the reasons for the instability of the situation on both sides of the Straits are due to the Taiwan independence speech from the Taiwan concerned. Why is Lai Qingde so honest on the question of being a Taiwan independence worker? Tang Xianglong: instead of discussing why Lai Qingde is so honest, it is better to discuss why the DPP outside LRT is so dishonest. In fact, why does the Taiwan independence be Lai Qingde? Cai Yingwens employer can see which is not Taiwan independence? Taiwan independence is the partys platform of the DPP. How can the partys politicians not Taiwan independence? In the past, the Taiwan independence was something that could not be said in the political education system of the DPP, so you see the former DPP politicians, even if they risk the road to Taiwan independence, but they seldom say, because they know that it will bring great trouble. But why did Lai Qingde put Taiwan independence on his lips? The most important reason is that he realized that the Taiwan independence was unparalleled in the situation that the DPP was in power. In addition to pushing himself to the role of the flag officer, he responded to the deep green Taiwan independence expression in the DPP. This will increase Lai Qingdes future political positions in the party, including the challenge of Cai Yingwens power, because he has been in the political right position. The United States Taiwan Strait brand: from strategic ambiguity to destructive clarity Global Times: since the passage of the Taiwan travel law, the United States and Taiwan interact frequently. In June, Taiwan may carry out the Han Guang exercise. The AIT may be made by the United States Marine Corps guard, and the situation in the Taiwan Strait is now highly sensitive. You think the Taiwan Strait finally slid to the critical point of losing the possibility of peace settlement. Does it happen? Tang Xianglong: the United States has unilaterally changed the status quo of the Taiwan Strait, or the United States today has changed its strategic position in Taiwan. In the past, the United States positioning of Taiwan was a strategic ambiguity, and it would not be directly stated that Taiwan was part of China. When the president of the United States talks about Cross Straits relations, the most expression of respect and cognition of the continental expression is not recognition, meaning I know this is your idea, which is the bottom line of the United States. The US side does not want to break up with China because of the Taiwan issue. It is a bit like a quarrel between husband and wife. One side does not want to continue to quarrel, impatiently says, OK, OK, I know! Americas intention to manipulate the Taiwan independence brand is becoming clearer and clearer, from strategic ambiguity to destructive clarity today. Whether it is Taiwan travel law or AIT by the United States Navy, it is the support of the Taiwan independence force, which is why the DPP is more and more dared to shout the platform. An important reason for independence. Because they know time is coming, the United States wants them to call Taiwan independence, and conversely, if it is expressed in a vague manner, the United States will be unhappy. Reversing Taiwanese prejudice against the mainland and standing on the side of the mainland Global Times: as you have said, Taiwan has missed the time when the mainland considers Taiwan anything is good. We have noticed that after the introduction of the 31 articles on the mainland, the Taiwan authorities regard this as a flood beast, and some young people in Taiwan scolded the mainland all day on the Internet, and Taiwan still seems to feel nothing is good on the mainland. Tang Xianglong: today the cross-strait stereotype of the two sides needs time, and time stands on the side of the mainland. But this transformation takes time. Its very difficult for people to change clothes and change their hairstyle. Its very difficult to change their brains. It may take one or two generations to reach them. From the human nature, because of the same same language, it is easy to appear a very ambiguous contest, similar to the brother and sister of the calculation, is to prove that although the family is the same, but more superior than the other. In the past, political education on the island gave Taiwanese people the idea that Taiwan is superior to all aspects of the mainland. this will take time to change. In 2008, Taiwans rising sentiment was not in the middle of the enemy, but light in the middle, but after the 2014, the atmosphere of all walks of life in Taiwan has changed obviously. This is related to the explosive growth of the Chinese mainlands strength and image. Taiwans impression of the mainland is often not necessarily reversed through tourism and interviews, but by changing international medias understanding of the Chinese mainland. Similarly, the mainlands sense of anything good in Taiwan is disappearing. A core and subtle element for judging a group or individual is grade evaluation. Today, Taiwan people have increased their acceptance of the mainlands goods and popular culture, and the popular cultural products on the mainland have become part of the Taiwanese life. Whether it is the mainlands drama or the star, it has gradually become a topic. The TV series such as The Legend of Zhen Huan and other TV plays are replanted in Taiwan, which proves the mainland products represented by popular culture. I was accepted in Taiwan. The rest, it only takes time to ferment.
