    Hong Kong

        Probably not such a good idea for Taiwan, as it would likely mean the instantaneous launch of an invasion from the mainland.

        If Taiwan really wanted independence, they could have self-declared it at any time.

          They did. They are not part of mainland China at all.

          As for the rest, how like the Democrats to waste time and effort on things they have zero control over by making a useless gesture.

            Anything that rubs China the wrong way is good in my book. Especially after this virus crap they started.

            Unless the Dems want it...then no, sorry. Anything they think is good is usually bad.

              All we can be certain of is appeasement is probably a really bad idea.

                This should raise the question, "Can you recognize someone as independent even if they do not see themselves as such?"

                For example, could Russia 'recognize' Nevada as an independent country, even if no one in Nevada said as much?
                How about someone recognizing your wife as 'single', even though she might protest and insist she is still married?

                    For Tibetans in exile, the Indian government and people of India have done a lot for Tibet. Even Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama calls himself a "son of India".

                    However, they say if the people in Tibet were to get more autonomy within the Chinese constitution, it could be achieved only through the political support of India and its people.

                    "China has occupied Tibet and we expect India has the only legitimacy and credibility to speak about Tibet," a senior Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) functionary told IANS on Tuesday.

                    I can't say we had done enough, but at least we had not surrounded to Chinese pressure.

                      The difference between Tibet and Hong Kong or Taiwan is that Tibet actually consider themselves an independent country currently under foreign occupation; while Hong Kong and Taiwan have never said the same.

                        Damn man don't you read any more? The Bill was introduced by a Republican
                        "Ask not what your country can do for you"

                        Left wing, Right Wing same bird that they are killing.

                          Truthfully, I rarely read your stuff because it's all hate-America-hate-Trump-love-the-Democrats junk, so I didn't realize you changed sides.

                          For the record, though...I'm Independent. Competence is my yardstick.

                            Last I looked at the real World the Congress is split in the middle and if any controlling is being done its by McConnell.
                            "Ask not what your country can do for you"

                              The last time I looked, the Democrats controlled the House and the Republicans the Senate and the White House.

                              Where has John ever posted anything remotely 'hate America'?

                              The only side there should be is that which supports the country. Trump doesn't do that, he hurts the country.

                              If competence is your 'yardstick' then why do you support Trump as well as a civil war? That isn't 'competence' it's anything but.
                              We are not now that strength which in old days
                              Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
                              Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
                              To strive to seek to find and not to yield.
