Example text

Hence, the US has the capability to cope with China’s challenge by pursuing these four strategies to safeguard its economic, security and strategic interests, to support a democratic Taiwan in the international community, and to participate in a US–Taiwan FTA. Therefore, if appropriately managed, the US will benefit from its vigorous and progressive policy, while it derives no benefit from its current passive policy of maintaining the cross-Strait status quo.

Economic and strategic interests in the US usually override its moral concerns on human rights, political and religious freedom in China, as evidenced by its lip-service to China’s pro-democracy movement without forcefully demanding China’s political liberalization. One wonders whether American pragmatic policy toward China may one day sacrifice the values of freedom and democracy for short-term strategic interests, and Taiwan may become the prey of Washington’s myopic policy.
