  • Us-China Relationship

    When the U.S. began to break promises made to China, a show of force from both sides occurred. Ten years after the 1982 communiqué, the U.S. began to renege on its promises and sold Taiwan 150 F-16 planes. Two years later this was followed by the U.S. allowing Lee Teng-hui to visit Cornell university. (Ross 2000: 87-91) This was one state testing the waters, and exploring the response they would receive in the post cold war world. The F-16 sales was allowed by Bush simply because he thought he could get away with it. Lee 's visa was approved not because Clinton thought it would be a smart move internationally, but because he gave in to an overwhelming majority who voted for it in the U.S. Congress. The representatives in Congress were certainly intelligent enough to know that passing this would have negative repercussions on U.S.-China relations, but it would look bad politically to vote against the visa. China was becoming increasingly upset with the independence movement leading up to the Taiwanese election and U.S. actions leading up to to it. China pushed the U.S. for a fourth communiqué and for actions, not just words, to stop another incident like the Lee visit. The U.S. state department responded by saying they had made their position on Taiwan clear and were not willing to change…

  • China Pros And Cons

    There is but one china, and Taiwan is a part of China.” This statement, otherwise known as the One China Policy is absolutely correct.

  • Nicholai Machiavelli's The Prince Analysis

    and leadership. Machiavelli’s discussion of “How states or principalities should be governed that lived by their own laws before they were occupied” is of particular note to contemporary political leaders as it illustrates the folly of trying to change the political culture of conquered peoples.

  • How Did The Cold War Affect China

    European powers during the Opium and Sino-French wars, and then again during the Sino-Japanese war, China’s longtime status as regional hegemon had come to an end.

  • Bandwagoning Case Study

With a declining Great Britain and a rising Germany that was not satisfied with the status quo, one can begin to see glaring similarities to the current situation between the United States and China. A major issue in most transitions of power that is likely to…
