Taiwan--A Sellout?

Mclaughlin, John
September 1982
National Review;9/17/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 18, p1132
This article presents information on the Taiwan Relations Act. The act states that Mainland China may only use peaceful means to reunify itself with Taiwan, and that the U.S. is bound to make arms available to Taiwan, as needed, for Taiwan to defend itself. It is informed that Taiwan is a far more important economic partner to the U.S. and to the West in general than is Mainland China. During his campaign, U.S. President Ronald Reagan pledged to upgrade diplomatic relationship with Taiwan. However, Reagan walked away from his pledge.
