Of course I knew this. I'm just saying that the imperialists who stole the treasure should give them back. Also, I'm for Taiwan independence. I would gladly support any movement giving the treasures that the KMT stole back to China, since that would further promote a separate Taiwan identity. So yeah...

And even though the last presidential election was 41.55% DPP and 58% KMT, about 70% of the people in Taiwan consider themselves Taiwanese rather than Chinese. It was the bad administration of President Chen that caused people to vote for KMT, not because they want to join with China.

so why just rag on the brits then before being prompted to fess up to your own country having more than its fair share of china's wealth? if you have respect for your own country despite its possession of these artifacts, maybe you could show a little to britain too and quit with the 'imperialists' talk. besides, the 'imperialists' who stole the treasure cant give it back, theyve all been dead for a very long time now. how about you resurrect the saints who took the rest to taiwan and get them to give yours back too :)

Like I said before, the KMT who came to Taiwan in 1949 stole the treasures. If I were the ones managing the treasures, I would be more than happy to send them back to China. I hate the KMT to its very core. Don't talk like KMT=Taiwan. That kind of ignorant talk just pisses me off. Half of Taiwan does not like the KMT. Also, the common misconception is that most of Taiwanese who came to Taiwan came during the late 1940s. That's a blatant lie portrayed by the KMT/CCP to the world. Around 85% of Taiwanese have ancestors who came to Taiwan before the Japanese Empire took over (aka before 1949), with around 90% of that group coming to Taiwan during the 1700s to 1800s. The KMT not only stole the wealth of China, they stole the wealth of Taiwanese as well. Don't talk like it's TAIWAN who stole China's wealth. It's the KMT who stole China's wealth. Learn to differentiate between KMT and Taiwan, political party and nation.

i think you should learn to read before you rant.

i never said that the KMT= Taiwan. that is how you CHOSE to read what i said. what i said was that chinas treasures were taken to Taiwan and they are still there. thats just a fact. so dont call people ignorant when you are guilty of not being able to read what people have written. it only makes you look silly.

i also never said that taiwanese came to china and stole its wealth, i said it was TAKEN TO TAIWAN. which it was, and by your own admission it is still there. so there you are, not bothering to actually read whats being written properly again.

my point was WHY, knowing about the items from china in Taiwan, did you chose to totally omit this and merely make an inflammatory remark about the Imperialist British (who dont actually exist anymore by the way) as though we were the lone gunmen in this whole affair. dont you think if you were going to make a point like you did about returning chinas treasures you could have mentioned your own countries history as well?
i was remarking about how you ommited this, and chose to just make certain remarks about Britain. i would suggest you were embarassed about a period in YOUR history, and it is your history, good or bad, and so just chose to be a hypocrite when you should have known better and make remarks about another nation exactly like those that you dislike about your own. i would think if you feel so strongly about this particular period in history that you would empathise with the british people for having a similar history with regards to stolen treasures.

its interesting to me that you will argue the distinction between the taiwanese people and the KMT, and yet you refer to imperialist Britain, when we arent anymore? dont you think you could extend the british people the same courtesy you would like the taiwanese people to be extended?

if you would be happy to send chinas treasures back, dont make the assumption that the british people dont think the same way about the ones here.

I just read it that way. I'm sorry, but I usually think too much when I read. Sorry about that.

And the KMT considers themselves Chinese. I consider myself Taiwanese, so technically they're not from the same country.

YES we eat dog meat! Is that a problem? ITS MEAT. Cows are sacred to many people from india and yet you americans don't have a problem eating them by millions. Its called different cultures. Also just because i'm fucking chinese doesn't mean I'm going to steal your dog and eat it for christ sakes.



The reason why we find it so disturbing is that dogs are pets. They are like another member of our family so that's the main reason. Also dogs were breed to be man's best friend if you know what I mean.

Don't Koreans also eat dogs? I even had a Korean friend who told us she's ate dogs before (she came from Korea about 2 years ago).

Filipinos also eat Dog Meat for annual events like some squatter party.
(Usually done by poor Filipino people that doesn't have enough money to buy much more rich meat.)
Instead, these people will just go to some streets and will look for stray dogs. poor dogs..

*cough* on topic... I think China is a really great country. Communism suits them best.
I won't think about the negatives, so don't bother me xD
