EDITORIAL: Getting through to ChineseA report published in the Journal of Contemporary China on May 14 indicated that about half of Chinese would be in favor of using military force to achieve unification with Taiwan. All of this means that Chinese military aggression against Taiwan is exceedingly likely to result in failure and be highly detrimental to China. The Chinese public, for all its nationalistic posturing, is aware of this. Moreover, the Chinese public has been allowed to discuss the issue online. Those messages seem to be getting through to the Chinese public.
