A word edgewise

Roche, John P.
February 1982
National Review;2/5/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 2, p130
The article focuses on the foreign policies of the U.S. and China towards each other. The policy of the U.S. is that of 'two China', recognizing both China and Taiwan. If China and Taiwan did not like that it was their problem not of the U.S. However, China has been pestering the U.S. by demanding that it should prove its merits as a reliable ally of China by betraying Taiwan. The reason for the Chinese demand was obvious: for almost a decade it had literally been a lunatic asylum run by the inmates, and now it decided to bring in the army.
