Check 'em out. DPP legislator Tsai Trong-rong worries the Executive Yuan will amend regulations to allow Chinese investment in the cable market in Taiwan (which requires no Legislative approval), while Japanese Professor Tada Kei (多田惠) presents a strong case that the new KMT interpretation of the Treaty of Taipei is complete nonsense.

I had thought the "Taiwan's status is undetermined" question was rendered moot because under the principle of popular sovereignty, when the people of Taiwan voted for the ROC president in 1996, 2000, 2004 and 2008, they legitimized the ROC as Taiwan's government?

I would say argue that Taiwan is the ROC (and that the ROC is limited to Taiwan and outlying islands); but the question is what is Taiwan's status vis-à-vis (mainland) China.

The US and Japan's position remains the same, that the status of Taiwan is undetermined. That is especially true now considering they don't recognize the ROC government.
