ABSTRACT
Claims that the outcome of the presidential election in Taiwan this weekend could determine whether the America's close relations with the country will pose a threat to U.S.-Chinese relations, and to U.S. security in the region. Report that incumbent president Chen Shui-bian has upset Chinese leaders by calling openly for Taiwan's formal independence from the mainland; Speculation that if Chen beats Lien Chan, who backs the status quo with China, the issue of Taiwanese independence could heat up; Details of other moves by Chen that have raised the hackles of the Chinese; Speculation about whether China would take military action against Taiwan, forcing the U.S. to intervene.
