    Taiwanese president shot

    News is now breaking that Chen Shui-bian has been shot in the stomach during a campaign stop for the election tomorrow. The vice president was also hit in the ankle.

    Well, this should be a nice stress-free weekend in East Asia.

    It was obviously an al Qaeda operative trying to show his support for Kerry. </smeghead>

    It was obviously carried out by Bush, in hopes that Al Queda would be blamed and he could use the attack to score "fear" points from the populace in the november elections. </llad12>

    Feel free to add more information as to why you think assassinating a leader right before a democratic election would be good for Taiwan, China, or the stability of the region.

    Careful, your nationalism is showing. :rolleyes:

    I'm against China's domination of Taiwan, and this is the type of attitude I see in a lot of Chinese citizens that I've spoken to on the subject. Frankly, I find it appalling.

    Your cold blooded enthusiasm for the death of another really says loads about your character, you know, and about your point of view.

    For those of you who are wondering about my comment, I really couldn't care less about China-Taiwan relationships. Yes, I am from mainland china but I've spent 4 years of my life in Taiwan and yes, I totally love it there. My comment was more of a sarcastic, joke kind of comment. You may think Chinese people are all talking about dominating Taiwan, but trust me, Taiwanese people are much more enthusiatic on this subject as I have experienced over the years there. No, it wasn't enjoyable when certain people came up to me.

    The hip thing in Taiwan now is having 5 year olds chained together by the ankles make mcdonalds toys at gunpoint.
