Came across an interesting post in "Op-Ed by the Reporter" which promotes a view which I have expressed for sometime. US support for (and military defense of) Taiwan is an anachronism. The US public could care less and would never in a million years support serious military action against the Chinese in support of Taiwan. By the same token, a majority of Taiwanese seem to be willing to live with being part of PRC. So... Washington should use Taiwan as a mega-bargaining chip.
