  • We no longer live in a world without alliances.

  • Yes, individual nations retain sovereignty within their borders.

  • However, the days are over when a single nation will boss and police an entire region alone.

  • One nation can no longer take out anenemyin another nation as thelone ranger”.

  • Any nation that tries will face scorn from others.

  • If a government goes rogue, a plurality of other nations must intervene.

  • This is international political gravity today.

  • We live in a world of growing alliances between sovereign nations.

  • China has been seeking respect and peace in its part of the world.

  • The US has been seeking to cut off enemies before they have an opportunity to grow.

  • In the Far East, the USsolution has been to patrol freely in Asian waters.

  • China’s solution has been to fly its national flag on more soil.

  • Neither process will continue to work.

  • And, if both processes continue, they will lead to unimaginable fallout, what some might

  • think as WWIII, though still not that grand.

  • The solution to peace from the South China Sea to the Koreas is simple: Alliance.

  • China needs to stop trying to be a so-callednationand return to its true DNA of

  • an empire.

  • Korea needs to reunite.

  • Only the South can help heal the North because no other nations are like those two.

  • The USrole in the region, as well as China’s standing with Hong Kong and Taiwan, are in

  • a struggle.

  • The US needs to be a friend.

  • China has always been an empire.

  • It’s own leaders up until just over 100 years ago were calledemperors”.

  • China’s connection to Taiwan and Hong Kong was never that of a nation and its provinces,

  • but of nations to their common empire.

  • This is why attempting toreuniteTaiwan and Hong Kong with China has proven to be

  • difficultone can’t “re-” do something that was never done.

  • China’s goal of unity among Mandarin-speaking people and Han blood is not bad, it is quite

  • good.

  • The Chinese are a family.

  • Though they disagree, though they live in many houses, they are still family.

  • This is true and good.

  • The way to return the Chinese people to their rightful standing in history is for China

  • to take the initiative of a leader and take advantage of the situation today.

  • China needs to create the modern version of anempire”—a new alliance among Chinese

  • people.

  • In Taiwan’s most recent presidential election, the old enemy of the Communist Party, the

  • KMT-Nationalist Party, was soundly defeated by the democratic process in Taiwan.

  • For that and for peace, China coulddeclare victoryover the old government and recognize

  • Taiwan as an independent State in return, on condition that the KMT-Nationalist Party

  • be completely disbanded and its assets completely appropriated in a manner that China and Taiwan

  • agree to.

  • By declaring victory, China would prove its ability to win its own revolutionary war,

  • thus legitimizing its own existence as an unquestionable State.

  • By Taiwan recognizing China, no one would be able to question China’s legitimacy again.

  • China should then form an alliance with Taiwan to patrol the South Sea together in a new

  • alliance, which both must pay into.

  • Taiwan would become a member of the UN and China and Taiwan would agree on whatever to

  • do with the man-made islands in the South Sea, having some kind of mutual ownership

  • or alliance-like version of a “time shareorcondominiumarrangement.

  • Then, no other nation could question the state of those islands since their waters would

  • be patrolled multinationally.

  • In the China-Taiwan alliance, Taiwan would continue to buy military supply from the US

  • and China would be able to make deals with Russia.

  • Taiwan would be able to besovereignbut yetinterdependentwith Chinawhich

  • is not plain, traditionally viewedindependence”.

  • It would have an alliance.

  • In the mind of the Westand Westernized Taiwan and Hong Kongan alliance is a much

  • greater signal of unity than statehood.

  • In the mind of the Far East, the Empire, not the State, has been the solution to peace.

  • An alliance may not be the best option, but it is the most likely option for the longest-lasting

  • peace to succeed, and will mostly likely include prosperity.

  • The students in Hong Kong, theUmbrellamovement, has created much drama in the press

  • about China.

  • However right or wrong this may have been for either party, China could show its great

  • strength by making a simple declaration: Hong Kong is a free country on one conditionBeijing

  • supplies Hong Kong’s military and Hong Kong is considered China’s defensive zone.

  • The basis would be that the resistance to China never requested its own military, even

  • though requesting one’s own military is the key to any national independence.

  • The Umbrella movement was never fully-fledged in the first place.

  • Beijing would simply agree and give them just that.

  • China would then double its presence at its military installations in Hong Kong.

  • Then, Beijing could enjoy a military base rent-free and would remove all excuses for

  • anyone in Hong Kong to complain.

  • Dissenters would be instantly discredited and China would have impenetrable respect

  • around the world.

  • Hong Kong would also become a non-voting member of the new alliance, enjoying all of its benefits,

  • just as China would also enjoy.

  • As for Korea, a multinational military force should be established to stabilize military

  • peace.

  • Chinese and American troops should keep a kind of cooperative presence as they arrange

  • with Korea, once Korea becomes reunited with itself.

  • Of course, the presence of either military would remain at Korea’s pleasure, but Chinese

  • and Americans should agree that any presence would be equal in number between China and

  • the United States.

  • In thisthink piecearticle of mere ideas, much more could be said and very much

  • could be improved on.

  • The model of a new Chinese alliance in the Pacific can help to address many of the problems

  • and bring international stability, both within the Western Pacific itself and between the

  • Western Pacific and the Western Hemisphere.

  • We need to seek out the creation of newer alliances, not the acquisition of provinces.

  • By pursuing alliances, everyone has progress and respect and no one loses face in the least.

  • The Pacific Daily Times does not endorse or oppose any foreign policy, nor does the Times

  • criticize or interfere with other countriesdecisions.

  • Domestic decisions must remain the choice of a nation, its people, and its government,

  • not the press.

  • The only opinion here is with regard to events whether past, future, or present, and the

  • most likely roads between them.

  • The mission and purpose of the Pacific Daily Times is to help everyone to know each other

  • along that road, whichever road history may so choose.

We no longer live in a world without alliances.
